Daniel is an excellent guide. His English is perfect and he has a pleasant personality. I really enjoyed my night dining/drinking tour with him. It was definitely a highlight of my trip to Korea. I was able to go places and eat things that I would never have been able to on my own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Todd. It was great meeting you

We had our tour with a colleague of Daniel called Shrek. Shrek is a very good guide - we saw a lot, had very nice and interesting conversations about Seoul and Korea and learned a lot. Even it was very cold (-13 Celsius) we enjoyed a lot! I recommend Shrek for touring in Seoul!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much and I will let Shrek know
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are glad to know that you had a good time with Kyung-roon, also known as Shrek. In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.

Enjoyed the tour. Daniel was very thoughtful and adjusted the tour to our needs. Had a great time in Seoul.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind response. It was great meeting you in Korea. I hope my comments about business in Seoul were helpful. Actually, I am super curious to hear how it went. Cheers. Dan

Excellent guide and excellent tour. For me, this was the best way to spend a layover in Seoul. As I am in a similar line of business, I appreciate the viewpoint Dan has coming from the US. Often locals overlook the more rewarding experiences, thinking they are too "common" or simply not for tourists. But back-alley dives and holes-in-walls tucked in markets are exactly what I want to try when it comes to food. Great tour for any foodie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Renee thank you so much. It was great meeting you and have a great rest of your trip.

Dan gave a great personalized tour of Seoul. Tried foods I wouldn't have been comfortable without him. Hiked to the top of a mountain to get a view of Seoul. Great day and enjoyed everything we did. Highly recommended. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you so much Mike for a nice rating. Enjoy your time in Bangkok. I hope my friend's restaurant recommendations are good. If they are good, let me know because I'll have to visit there one day!

Daniel had something come up but found a suitable replacement whose name escapes me at the moment. We were only in Seoul for 7hrs minus the commute to the airport. In that short time frame we managed to see and taste a lot. It was pretty awesome. The guide was great; super helpful and extremely personable. His english was a little tough to understand but it could have been my jetlag. He gave us helped us sample several tasty treats as well as helping us locate a bag my wife had been searching for.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: It is ToursByLocals policy that in the unusual case where the guide actually giving the tour cannot be the person shown on our website, the customer is told before booking and agrees to the change.

Daniel is great fun. He knows the city very well and introduces the country via the local foods. I would never have found most of the places he took us to, much less been comfortable eating off the streets and in local eateries as he does. This was a wonderful introduction to South Korea. We want to come back and will certainly start with any recommendations he has. Book him now!

Since our group of five had already been in Seoul for two days, we asked Daniel for a customiize tour and he was most accomodating in meeting our requests. It was delightful having him as our guide not only on food matters but also general aspects of Korean culture.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind response. It was a pleasure to meet you while you were in Seoul. Cheers, Dan

Informative and pleasant tour. Daniel will go out of his way to accommodate our requests/interests, he is quite knowledgable about Seoul and Korea in general. Too bad, we did not have much time. Tour was a little bit high-paced for our legs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stefanus, Thank you for your kind comment and I'm sorry that I was moving too fast. I think I had a large cup of coffee that morning. Thank you so much for joining me in Seoul and I hope you had a great High School Union.

We very much enjoyed the variety of this tour as an introduction to Seoul. Daniel reflected our wishes in deciding which places to visit and during the tour he was very helpful and knowledgeable. Daniel was a charming guide and we would recommend him to others thinking of touring Seoul.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comment. Sincerely, Daniel G.

An outstanding tour; Daniel did a great job of matching the itinerary to my interests--even tailoring the agenda on the fly as the day progressed. I was very pleased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback. It was great to spend the day with you. I hope we will keep in touch and I am very interested in the superfood product you mentioned. Sincerely, Dan

The tour was very poor. After scheduling the tour well in advance, Daniel canceled in favor of a "VIP" We rescheduled; he was late, and then took us to the "Rear Garden" where we were toured, not by Daniel, but by the Palace guide; that took over 1 1/2 hrs of our time. We next had a 1 1/2 hr lunch (I paid); walked through a shopping district and then had 1 hr tea together. I did't complain in front of my family, but did later; his offer? $60 refund on a $350 tour if I did not write a bad review.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the tour. If you had indicated this to me earlier, I would have shown you to some other sites. Entry to the"rear garden" is only allowed with their own guides. I was trying to be nice to your pregnant daughter, so we didn't walk too far. We stopped for coffee because your son in law was tired. Also, it seemed like you were having time with your family, so I let everyone talk and enjoy themselves. I offered to pay you for lunch and a refund ($160).
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We have spoken to Daniel about this review and asked him to respond.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Odell. It was great to see you and your friends. I wish you the best of luck and if I'm ever in Manila, I'll be sure to look you up. Cheers, Dan
