Denny was helpful even before the tour started by providing hotel suggestions that would put us in the area we would be visiting to eliminate travel time. On the day of the tour he rearranged the schedule to work around snow and cloud cover as well as dropping us off closer to a site due to cold weather. Denny suggestions for our next morning prior to our flight were helpful. I'd highly recommend Denny if you require a guide in Seoul. His knowledge and professionalism make him a superb guide.
Exactly what we were looking for. He responded to our interests and custom made a day for us. Very courteous. He provided interesting comments on Korean history and culture that enhanced our day. In short we highly recommend him.
Denny was very reliable and helpful. Even though our flight was early, Denny had anticipated it and was waiting. He helped us with our luggage, recommended good places to eat and was very informative with his tour. Denny also took the trouble to ensure that we got to the correct Air BnB apartment. It was a very positive experience and I strongly recommend his services.

He was very helpful in communicating with me in advance of our trip to Seoul about our itinerary and hotels to choose so that we could maximize our time in Seoul. He was very efficient in getting us from one sight to another so that we could see many of Seoul's highlights and then have time to spend an additional day visiting Nami Island. Denny was very knowledgeable, informative and a really good story teller sharing lots of interesting details about each place we visited which made our experience quite
He was very flexible and changed the tour according to our requests. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was a very interesting day.

My parents and I came from Australia and we did a one day tour with Denny and it was first class. It was the highlight of my parents trip to Korea. Denny listened to our every need and fully customised the tour to our liking, even though I only sent through request one hour prior to him picking us up! Some of our requests were not the regular tourist spots, however Denny had great knowledge of Korea and gave us a great experience.

We could not believe how much Denny showed and took care of us on this tour as well as insights into the culture, local eats, and where the locals shop. Intertwined with the historical aspects gives us the depth of the of Seoul life and its people. We would recommend Denny anytime. Thank you Denny!

Denny (Kun-yong) is awesome!!! He is so thoughtful and accommodating. His enthusiasm, knowledge and overall professionalism are unparalleled. I will always cherish the memories of our tour with him!
Susan LimbUnited States
Denny showed us all around Seoul and his commentary was expert, insightful, and humorous. It would have taken us 3 or 4 days on our own to see what we were able to see in a single day with Denny, and we would have missed out on a lot of the history and cultural context. Our group ranged in age from 11 to 80 years, and he was happy to accommodate the varying needs of our group. Highly recommend!
Susan AngelUnited States
Denny was the best! Very flexible, and knew all the secrets to finding good parking places. I would rate his English as "fluent." He gave us very interesting information about the history & culture. He was good at pointing out the highlights of a museum or tourist site, and was very knowledgeable about everything. He modified the program as we went along to accommodate our interests. My 94-year-old mother was with us, and he was great at telling her which sights were worth climbing stairs to or not.

We had a great tour with Denny. Despite the rain and our request to be back at the hotel earlier,we were able to see many sites. Denny was very attentive and very knowledgeable. His english was good. He was also accomodating to our request to visit other sites. We would gladly take another tour with Denny.
Anthony TerranaUnited States
Excellent guide,very informative and interesting. He had to modify the normal tour because I had seen some of the major sites the first day I arrived and he did a great job. English was excellent, easy to spend the day with. Also filled with interesting facts regarding past and present Korean history. Would highly recommend.

My family enjoyed our own private city tour with Denny! Will definitely use tours by local next time in Seoul!
Jennifer MeadUnited States
Denny is the best tour guide we had while we were in South Korea and we wished that we could have toured with him more. Denny is very knowledgeable, considerate, and catered our tour especially for us. We learned so much from him that throughout our vacation our family kept mentioning things that we have learned from him. He was so patient with us and answered so many of our questions! He also took us to a local restaurant for lunch which for several of us was the best dish we had in Korea. Thank you!!

Had fantastic 2- whole days with Kun-yong. He took good care of us. He explained quite a lot and was very thoughtful of our dietary /other needs. He was candid and spoke his mind which I appreciate a lot. He was flexible and kept making sure we were comfortable all the time. I had decided what I wanted to see before I got to Seoul and he set up a very nice itinerary for us which was neither hectic nor slow. Just right. Great and entertaining conservationist. Would definitely take him as our guide again.
Douglas GuthrieUnited States
We had a amazing day with Denny exploring Seoul. From the Seoul Tower to the Changdeokgung Palace to the various markets around the city. Denny is very knowledgeable about the city and the country as well as history and current events. I feel we came away with a much better understanding of the city and the Korean people. Denny was really very flexible and had great English! All in all, this was an excellent intro to Seoul and South Korea! Highly recommend!
Awesome vacation! Our tour guide Denny was very accomodating and helpful. He really followed what we wanted to see with the City tour and taking into consideration that we were with our 70 year old mother. Will definitely recommend you to our friends. Thank you Tours by Locals. Keep up the good work.

Denny was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. He took us thru all the main sites as well as locations that we were not aware of. His knowledge of Seoul was excellent and we enjoyed his company I would recommend his services.

Mr. Denny was a wonderful tour guide! He toured us in Seoul and answered all of our questions. He even helped us with our heater problem event hough it's not part of his job. And even became our family photographer too. There was also a problem with a car hitting my mom and also me (almost!) after our namdaemun shopping and he tried to help us and explained to us what we can do and even say sorry in behalf of the old woman's poor driving skills. Thank you again, hope to see you with your wife soon!:
J P RowlandsUnited Kingdom
Very knowledgeable and considerate guide. He answered every hostorical and local question he was asked. He also suggested other places to visit during the tour which he detected we might be interested in because of our questions. We covered a lot of places and themes in a short time. We certainly got a feel for Seoul on the various districts during the time we had with him. Very polite and nice guy.
The night tour in Seoul with my guide Kun-yong Yu was realy nice. After a great day tour at the day before he showed me some beautyful places in Seoul at night. He was very friendly and patience and told me a lot of interesting things about Seoul and Korea. I would recomend to book his Seoul Night Tour to my friends.
Ann LiuUnited States
So informative and thorough! He knew so much about everything and took us to the most interesting spots at the palace. We would have been lost without him, wandering around without any information! We had a packed day and saw so much throughout the city! We had 6 tour guides in 3 countries, and Denny was one of the best!
Nigel MeesonHong Kong
Excellent tour that included all the main highlights. It was so much more efficient to have a guide and a vehicle but we prefer it when the guide has a driver so that we don't have to waste time trying to find places to park because we can just be dropped off and picked up. His english was impeccable and his knowledge of the city and the history very good.

He brought us to Changdeokgung palace and had demonstrated good knowledge of its history. The itinerary was planned in partnership as we were consulted throughout. He was patient and even offered to bring us to other places even though the tour duration was coming to an end. We felt we were with a friend. He gave us personal space as a family where relevant and was never intrusive. My 9 yr-old son cried when it was time to say goodbye to him. We will definitely engage his service if we visit Seoul again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comments Hashim. It was my pleasure to meet you and your family and I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Seoul. I really love my job and enjoy meeting people from across the world as I could meet such a generous and beautiful mind person like you. Thanks again for touring with me in Korea and I wish you are always healthy and be peace with you and your family. Merry X-mas and Happy New Year. Thank you.
