Very good tour with a very friendly guide whos English was OK. People carrier vehicle with only the 2 of us. Very comfortable with AC. Pick up point was difficult to find and a bit of a walk. Wouldve preferred a pick up nearer our AirBNB which would not have been difficult for them to do. All the sites were covered and were extremely interesting. Lunch was typical Korean cuisine. Highly recommend this tour.
Our guide Mimi met us promptly at our hotel. We shared a minivan for the tour with a very nice family from the Philippines. First stop was Namsan Hanok Village to see several examples of traditional Korean houses that had been relocated to the site. Mimi provided a nice discussion about a number of the interesting features of the houses. We then went to the Seoul Tower to see the city from the observation deck. It was nice to arrive early in the morning when hardly anyone else was at the tower so we had it practically to ourselves. Our final stop was at the War Memorial which was a very sobering experience given all of the soldiers including a large number of Americans who lost their lives in the Korean war. We only had time to see a limited number of the exhibits, this is a huge war memorial museum and for those with an interest in the historical aspects could easily spend much more time there. Our tour ended at City Hall. Mimi was an excellent guide as she led us through the sites and provided an informative commentary. The tour covers some very interesting sights.
