I thought the tour company was very accommodating for us. We got picked up at the train station and they took our luggage for the day while we were on the tour and then dropped us back at the train station so we could catch a train to the airport. The tour was in English which was a plus. I would have preferred to skip the Ginseng center, which seemed to be a big money maker for the tours that stop there. More time at the traditional open market would have been preferred. Great guides!
