There are two main aspects to review here, the tour itself and the tour guide. I’ll start with the best part which is the tour guide! She is a middle-aged unni. We had many informative rich discussions about cultures, languages, religions (mine, hers, that of the followers in the shrine we visited). She is a good talker; mostly suggesting and rarely imposing. I took the tour with my 2 year old child and paid the same full price for both of us. She was kind and insisted on pushing my child’s stroller so that I could have my hands free to take pictures and admire everything. It is her job to show me around but it is not her job to take care of my lil one when I went to the bathroom or to play with her while I was coloring a lantern. She went above and beyond and I had so much fun with her. She would ask the sellers for extra bags for me and super big plastic bags which I can use as shopping bags without me asking. She took as many pictures of me as I wanted. I really really enjoyed her company. Also, being very humane-driven I liked seeing how she, a local ordinary middle aged Korean woman, manages the Korean sellers, the bargains, the crowds. Her English is very good which is expected from a licensed tour guide. Now, as for the trip itself. It had some good points and some points that needed some improvemnets. The good points are the special hidden gems (foods and places) that I could have never found in my 10 days trip without the help of a local guide! She spared me the time and the effort. we bought ourselves some breakfast from our first stop then had it under a bridge by the river. The view, the breeze, the feels was priceless! We then went to the shrine which was okay but I wish we spent less time in cuz looking back at the whole thing I really wish we could have spent more time elsewhere. I learnt a lot about the cultural aspects and the world of the spirits in the minds of the Korean ancestors. We went to the traditional village where we had lunch and some cake.We cancelled our stop at the blue house cuz of the sudden wave of protesters. Police officers were blocking everyway to the house. I wish the guide were a bit more careful and saw it coming as it was a planned protest. We could have avoided it had we went early in the morning. Due to being short in time, we had to run through our last stop but she was so devoted because instead of cancelling our last step (it was past 5:30 by the time we got there), we went thro the market super fast and she asked me what I wanted to eat and looked for it. Also... I didn’t know that we shall also pay for the guide’s lunch and other food expenses. She was nice and didn’t order a feast but I think it is something noteworthy. I will never ask for a better tour guide ever. I’ll recommend her to my friends. Will certainly meet up with unni next time I come to Korea. She is a great tour guide and gave me great warm day to remember. I felt home. By the way... by the end of the last stop, if you finish the market you will end up by a bakery... it has great bread that was perfect and one of the many highlights of my trip. The owners were very kind too. Thank you unni all the best with your future trips!

She was kind and insisted on pushing my child’s stroller so that I could have my hands free to take pictures and admire everything. It is her job to show me around but it is not her job to take care of my lil one when I went to the bathroom or to play with her while I was coloring a lantern. She went above and beyond and I had so much fun with her. She would ask the sellers for extra bags for me and super big plastic bags which I can use as shopping bags without me asking. She took as many pictures of me as I wanted. I really really enjoyed her company. Also, being very humane-driven I liked seeing how she, a local ordinary middle aged Korean woman, manages the Korean sellers, the bargains, the crowds. Her English is very good which is expected from a licensed tour guide. Now, as for the trip itself. It had some good points and some points that needed some improvemnets. The good points are the special hidden gems (foods and places) that I could have never found in my 10 days trip without the help of a local guide! She spared me the time and the effort. we bought ourselves some breakfast from our first stop then had it under a bridge by the river. The view, the breeze, the feels was priceless! We then went to the shrine which was okay but I wish we spent less time in cuz looking back at the whole thing I really wish we could have spent more time elsewhere. I learnt a lot about the cultural aspects and the world of the spirits in the minds of the Korean ancestors. We went to the traditional village where we had lunch and some cake.We cancelled our stop at the blue house cuz of the sudden wave of protesters. Police officers were blocking everyway to the house. I wish the guide were a bit more careful and saw it coming as it was a planned protest. We could have avoided it had we went early in the morning. Due to being short in time, we had to run through our last stop but she was so devoted because instead of cancelling our last step (it was past 5:30 by the time we got there), we went thro the market super fast and she asked me what I wanted to eat and looked for it. Also... I didn’t know that we shall also pay for the guide’s lunch and other food expenses. She was nice and didn’t order a feast but I think it is something noteworthy. I will never ask for a better tour guide ever. I’ll recommend her to my friends. Will certainly meet up with unni next time I come to Korea. She is a great tour guide and gave me great warm day to remember. I felt home. By the way... by the end of the last stop, if you finish the market you will end up by a bakery... it has great bread that was perfect and one of the many highlights of my trip. The owners were very kind too. Thank you unni all the best with your future trips!

There are two main aspects to review here, the tour itself and the tour guide. I’ll start with the best part which is the tour guide! She is a middle-aged unni. We had many informative rich discussions about cultures, languages, religions (mine, hers, that of the followers in the shrine we visited). She is a good talker; mostly suggesting and rarely imposing. I took the tour with my 2 year old child and paid the same full price for both of us. She was kind and insisted on pushing my child’s stroller so that I could have my hands free to take pictures and admire everything. It is her job to show me around but it is not her job to take care of my lil one when I went to the bathroom or to play with her while I was coloring a lantern.
