Turned out ot be a private tour since I was the only participant registered for the day. Miso was my guide and she was very knowledgeable and delightful companion. The UNESCO sites were amazing. It's very helpful to have transportation in Seoul and that's the main reason I choose this tour. It covered a couple of places that I really wanted to see. But in all, it was much more than just transportation. Miso made it a great morning!

A great tour from start to finish! We were lucky to get the same tour guide (Miso) I had had on another tour on Sunday. She was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. She kept us involved and moving to ensure we were able to arrend the portions of the tour that were time sensitive! So fun!

Our tour guide was able to guide us through the palace no problem and had plenty of information. Once we got to the temple it kinda fell apart. She was relying on the guide there to tell us everything. Unfortunately it was national culture day and there was no guide at the temple.

This was a good tour and our guide was very nice and accommodating, but it was a short tour for the price.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2018

We enjoyed seeing the 2 UNESCO sites in Seoul and our tour guide was really nice.

However, we did not enjoy the trip to the ginseng shop at the end of our tour. This was our 2nd tour in Korea that offered this. As we are not ginseng users, this bit of the tour should be optional.

The guide was excellent. The world heritage sites were also memorable and the tour was just enough, not too long, not too short.
