    Itinerary of the tour itself was good, but our guide spoke English with very heavy accents and she did not offer much help aside from leading us from place to place. In the War museum she simply left us to our own devices for two hours, and lost us in the Reunification Palace. When we asked for help in bargaining with market vendors, she did not offer any advice or translation. It was basically a chauffeured tour, not a guided tour.

    A packed and concise tour of the highlights of the city. The guide was good and discussed various aspects of the city, culture and history in a very informed way. It was possibly a bit rushed but it was our choice to put the highlights into a half-day. If you have more time the city certainly warrants it.
