Looking for a guide/driver 2/29/12

On our way back from a Southeast Asian cruise from Singapore, we will be arriving at 6:05 AM via Asiana Airlines 752 on February 29, but not leave for San Francisco until 6:15 PM, on United 892. It will be nice to be back in a country where they drive on the right! Anyways, we would like to hire someone to meet us at the airport to show us the highlights, then have us back in time for our flight. Any suggestions?

How would these rates (ie the published Avis rents) compare with a taxi driver whose English is reasonable - does anyone Know - say for 5 hours or so? What would be a reasonable negotiated rate be?

Depend on where you want to go, rates can be negotiate. Within Seoul approx. 100,000won~150,000won per 6~8hrs.

Another option for you is to take one of layover tours that depart from the Incheon airport and drop back at the airport. Click on "What can I do during a short or long layover at Incheon International Airport?" item on the Top Questions about Seoul column at this forum.
