There is so much to see and do in Busan. We are so glad we took the 2 day tour and that Joonuck was our guide. He was informative, well prepared but very flexible to our interests, took us to a variety of historical and current interest places and provided us with fabulous local food experiences. He went out of his way to search out specific shopping needs and he also provided much information for the time we had on our own. We want to return to Busan to experience more with Joonuck as our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THank you so much for your lovely feedback. I also had great time with your family. see you again soon. God bless you, Joonuck

We had a great tour with Joonuck! His English was excellent, he went out of his way to find a pharmacy for us, took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch. He was extremely courteous and knowledgeable and tried to accommodate us in every way.

Our tour with Joonuck was wonderful. He took us to the beautiful Bulguksa temple, with its many buildings with various Buddha statues in them. The Seokguram Grotto was amazing to learn about, particularly the construction of the grotto, but it was also amazing to see in person. After a delicious lunch, Joonuck was happy to oblige when I asked if we could just walk around the town for a while.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for kindness comments for me. Have a happy day! Thank you.

Best day of our trip! Joonuck was waiting for us as we got off the cruise boat. He was very accommodating to the things we wanted to do. He had great suggestions when we were planning our day. He was very easygoing and fun to be around!

Joonuck led us on an energetic tour of markets and eateries in Busan. We had a wonderful Korean lunch and lots of snacks and interesting goodies along the way. Joonuck rates his English skills as 'conversational' which is appropriate. There were times when we had a little difficulty but Joonuck tries very hard and, with a little patience, we were always able to have a productive conversation. We gave 4 stars instead of 5 as Joonuck took us to a restaurant that was closed and the detour was a bit long

Our guide Joonuck L. was extremely courteous and knowledgeable about Busan. His arranging a traditional Korean lunch was beautifully done and quite informative with excellent explanations about what was being prepared and served. We loved it and it was delicious! Seeing the beaches, the world's largest department store and fascinating sites made it a great day. Also, I use a walker and Joonuck was extremely helpful and even located a wheelchair to assist in a very long walk back to the ship. GREAT DAY!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments! I hope you have a great day keep on your life. Thank you again!

Joonuck was a wonderful ambassador for his hometown. He was very flexible with our need to change part of the tour. Highly recommend his services.
Joonuck was a very good driver, vehicle was very clean and he had bottled water for us. He was friendly and flexible. He struggled some with English but his English was way better than our Korean ��. He took us to a lovely Korean restaraunt and we enjoyed the meal very much but it was about $45 pp US. Pricier than we anticipated but quality food and a great experience. It would have been good to have had discussed price beforehand in case you wanted a less expensive/ quicker option. (4 from a cruise ship)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment. I am really happy to hear that you have enjoyed in Busan with me. I need to practice more express English!!! Have a nice trip today!

Joonuck Lee welcomed me at the station and showed concern for my comfort (toilet/water/food). He shared some history of Busan, focused on the sites I was interested in seeing, and provided interesting conversation about the area. I enjoyed my visit to Busan. Many wishes of happiness to Joonuck.

Kenneth GearUnited States
Joonuck was an excellent guide, truly showing us Busan and Korea through his eyes. We visited areas that would not be on most "standard" tours, which is what we had hoped. There was a nice mix of new and old Busan. We also learned more about Korea and the Korean War, another bonus. Our lunch was excellent, probably the best of our 4 toursbylocals tours; 3 courses of excellent, local and LOTS of food. I would definitely use Joonuck again.

Danielle StrickmanUnited States
Joonuck is a wonderful guide. He was responsive to every request we made, and was relaxed and knowledgeable about Busan and South Korea as a whole. We had a delightful afternoon with him. We had booked a four hour tour but he was comfortable to give us extra time without an additional charge. Do. Of hesitate to book with Joonuck!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much saying that. I hope you have a great memories in Busan. And see you in USA :)
Cindy BollingUnited States
Hard to understand. He wasn't as informed as some other guides we have had before from Tours by locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh I thought you are satisfied with Fish market, UN cemetery Korean war memorial hall and Korean tradtional cuisine. I am sorry about that. Have a nice day :)
Very pleasant guide. Very comfortable vehicle providing excellent transportation. Visited Busan and got a good impression of what the city had to offer. Recommend to anyone who has a short time and wishes to get to know the Busan area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you !!!
We traveled for a whole day outside of Busan visiting the Gyeongju area. Achieved what we set out to do and see within this wonderful one day tour. Our guide was very flexible and adapted very well to our needs and wishes. A very rewarding experience and highly recommended.

We visited Busan and Masan with our two young adult children who were born in Korea and adopted by us as infants. Joon Uck is a knowledgeable, engaging, & reliable guide. He customized our tour to our specific needs & he provided insightful information about Korea's history & the Korean War. He showed us places most tourists wouldn't know of. He took us to traditional Korean restaurants, something we all enjoyed. He speaks English very well. We greatly enjoyed our 2 days with him. We highly recommend him.
Davud SoUnited States
It was an excellent tour which definitely helped us to enjoy Busan. Joonuck was responsible and very responsive. It would be 5 stars if Joonuck could go in more depth to explain the history behind the places without having us to read through the details. All in all, we truly enjoyed the tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh! Thank you for comments I should prepare more depth historical story :)
