I don't have any specific recommendations for tour companies as it's been a few years since I lived there and did very little organized touring. Hanatour is a large travel/tour agency and they offer these types of trips, here's their website:
There is a HOHO type of bus system with english narration run by the city that you might be interested in. An all-day ticket is around $10. Here's a link:
If you want to try and see the city on your own, I'd be happy to help with any transportation / destination info...
We (me, 20 year old and 16 year old kids) will be in Seoul for a few days and would like a knowledgeable person to guide us. Any recommendations?Whatever you do, you might put Gyeongbokgung palace as one of your stops. They changing of the guard ceremony is colorful and interesting = they are in ancient costumes.
We were in Seoul in February. Jay Jung (firstname.lastname@example.org) at www.happymize.com picked us up at the pier in Inchon and drove up around Seoul. Articulate and personable. Only wish we were able to be in Seoul longer!
