The tour is scheduled to run for two hours with an accompanying guide and a mini-concert featuring traditional instrument performances with the haegeum and daegeum.
The event is open to both Koreans and adult foreigners residing within Seoul with the actual program and guiding services provided by Seoul KYC City Wall Tour Guides, a volunteer tour guide group for the Hanyangdoseong.
