Discover the historical side of Korea to the fullest; from a dynastic filming set, a UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed fortress to an over two-century-old palace.

Highlights
  • Reminisce your favorite Korean dramas and learn about classic Korean architecture as you explore MBC Dae Jang Geum Park
  • Explore Hwaseong Fortress, one of Korea's treasured monuments and a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Enjoy the day exploring the olden Korea without going on shopping stops at factories

Description

Be transported from your hotel room to century old Korea as you visit Dae Jang Geum Park, the largest historical drama open set in the nation. Have lunch at E-Mart (own expense), where you can choose from a variety of places to eat and shop at one of the biggest supermarkets in Korea.

From here, move to the authentic ancient structure: Hwaseong Fortress. Explore the corridors of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and learn how this impressive structure had a great influence on the development of Korean architecture, urban planning, and landscaping and related arts.

Complete the tour with a visit to Hwaseong Haenggung, a temporary palace where the king and the royal family retreated during a war. In addition to being used as a shelter during war, King Jeongjo also stayed here during trips to worship at his father's tomb. Every Sunday of April to October, various traditional performances are held at the plaza in front of the palace, including a changing of the guard ceremony and martial-arts display.

End the day feeling as if you time traveled into the olden days of Korea and regard their culture with renewed awe and respect. When the tour is over you will be safely dropped at your hotel.

Our group of 7 took the Full Day Historical Drama Location Tour. The highlights were while we were at the MBC Dramia Location, they were filming the drama Hwajung and we got to see some of the filming plus the main actor reading his script, the lunch was terrific (Stone Pot BiBimPab), the transportation was very comfortable with AC because it was a hot day and our guide was very helpful. I will be taking this tour again on my next trip to Korea, because by the time we found the locations that I had looked forward to, the palace area of MBC Dramia, we had only about 10 minutes to "run" through it. We then spent about 45 minutes in the "dress in historical costumes" area
which I felt was time would have been better spent in the "palace area". On my next tour I will spend more time in the "palace area". Our Yongin Folk Village tour was fine however I was hoping we would see the Equestrian show, but our guide said we did not have enough time to see it and we were shuffled off to the Fortress, which was all walking in the heat, so a couple of us just sat and waited it out. Just too long a walk.
I had originally booked this tour online for 2 before going to Korea and when I tried to add an additional 5 people to this tour in Korea, I had to cancel my original booking and re-book for 7. I was charged an additional $36 dollars for the original 2 bookings because of this. There was no "person" to contact regarding this situation. We could only do this online. So because I added 5 more people to the tour, I was penalized $36.
All in all, it was a good tour for the most part. I wish the guide had been a little more flexible.
