Kun-young (aka Denny) did an excellent job. I am really glad that he offered a Seoul tour where I get to plan where I want to go. He was able to show me some of Seoul's new sites which includes the modern Lotte Tower. Also he introduced me to some very delicious food at the Gwangjang market, which is a must see if you love Korean food so much. Also my visit to the modern National Museum of Korea was great since he was able to explain to me the 5,000 year Korean history. Hope to see him again.

Denny helped our family make the most of our time in Seoul. He is punctual, knowledgeable, service-minded and ready to walk the extra mile if needed. We can recommend his services wholeheartedly. We found him to be a great time-saver because of his detailed knowledge of e.g. DMZ procedures. Also, to be able to find a bathroom for my youngest son within 10 minutes despite heavy rush hour traffic in Seoul, that is invaluable to me as a single parent.

Denny was superb. Extremely knowledgeable about the history and the sites. English was very fluent and easy to understand. Excellent driver in the crazy Seoul traffic. Highly recommended. We would go out of our way to have him again.

Kung-Yon or Denny gave our group of 6 a great tour of the most important sights of Seoul. He knew history and was very undestanding as were senior citizens. He took us to a great place for lunch and went out his way to show us whatever we were interested in. This is a great way to visit specially if you are part of a group. No need to hassle with big tour buses and lots of people. His pick up was timely. We enjoyed ourselves greatly. Thanks Denny and thanks Tours by Locals for this service.

Denny is a fantastic tour guide and we highly recommend him for a Seoul tour or outside of Seoul. We booked a 3-day tour for Seoul and surrounding areas. We gave Denny a list of places we would like to see and he tailored a tour to fit our interests. He was extremely flexible during the tour and offered suggestions for additional sightseeing and stopped at places we wanted to see or shop at. He gave clear explanations and was able to answer hundreds of questions we had about Korea and its rich culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kay Ling, Thank you so much for your Positive feedback on my guide service. It was my big pleasure sharing the times with your family in Seoul. I enjoyed the days myself thanks to your lovely kid. Your kind hearted mind would be remained in my memory for a long time. Thanks again and may peace and happiness be your family all the time. Merry X-mas & Happy New Year.

We highly recommend Kun-yong (Denny). We hired Denny for a customized tour to the countryside, an area that is not typically a tourist location, but a place that had special significance to us. Although he had never been to this area, he had done his research and went out of his way to make sure we found the place we were looking for. He was friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and very respectful of our needs. His vehicle was clean, his English was good, and he went the extra mile to accommodate us.

We have a 2 days tour with Denny (Kun Yong) Yu, to Korean Folk Village and second day to Nami Island. Denny is very considerate in accomodating our need such as Halal food only for lunch and our specific request to have a photo experience in Hanbok. Considering we travel in a big group with variety of age different, my parent and my 2 daughters (one of them still a toddler), Denny maintained a good pace. We ended up taking Denny's offer to drive us to the airport flying back home. Thank you Denny.

Kun-yong ( Danny) is an excellent and very professional guide. We had limited time in Seoul. Not only he made the best use of our limited time, but he gave us options to chose from without being pushy. I think with him we saw everything you can see in Seoul in 6 hours. We can highly recommend him.

Denny is awesome. He has an incredible knowledge of Seoul, he customized the tour for our specific desires (most Buddhist temples and the top highlights of Seoul). He know all the little secret spots, was very helpful, punctual and we can not say enough of how good he is. We would recommend him to anyone for any tours in Seoul. Mark

Danny is a knowledgeable, polite, and very nice guy all around. He was very flexible with our chosen schedule and did his best to fulfil our expectation. He kept us entertained and took us to get the stuff we needed in Seoul, which was not part of tour itinerary. The information we got from him is up to date and valuable. We had an enjoyable day touring around Seoul. We highly recommend Danny as a tour guide and will definitely hire Danny as a tour guide on our next trip. Thanks and see you again, Danny!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Grittin, I heartily thank you for your favorable commet on my guide service. I was sorry that I couldn't be of more help while you were in Korea due to short time schedule. If I can see you again some other time, I will provide my very best service for you as a goof friend, than client. Please say hello to other people and I wish you and your family's all the best and peace. Take care!

If I knew, I wouldnt ever chose him. Too much trouble, this guy was agressive.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm truly disappointed and apologize that you didn't enjoy the tour experience. I found that you did not wish to stay at any of the attractions for longer than 5 or 10 minutes and seemed disinterested in the tour as a whole. Also an hour lunch is part of the tour to enjoy some of famous local dishes, however you declined to stop for lunch. I will strive to improve and change the format of the tour to ensure the tour is more interesting for my customers. Thank you for your comment.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We have been in touch with the traveler and asked further details but no substantial information was provided.

Denny was very prompt and professional. He met us at the hotel lobby and gave us an overview of our itinerary for the day. Since it was forecasted to rain in the afternoon, he also gave us options of where we might like to go. He was very flexible and accommodated our special requests, like going to the supermarket to buy some goodies to bring home. He shared many insights on Korean culture and ways.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm really thankful for your good review about my guide service. If I had the chance to meet you again someday, I will try to give you much better service. I sincerely hope all is well with your family at all times. Thanks again letting me serve you.

5 stars We were super satisfied with the day-long tour we had with Denny in Seoul. He was was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about so many diverse topics! We especially appreciated his responsiveness to our request for vegan food and we enjoyed lovely lunch near the Buddhist temple. We covered alot in a short amount of time and felt we got really good orientation to the city. Thanks, Denny

Our tour guide, Denny, was very knowledgeable of places he toured as to in "new" and "old" Seoul. Very respectful of our wishes on which sites we want to see. The only thing we regret is that we only had one day of tour due to our very tight schedule but will definitely have Denny as our tour guide the next time we visit South Korea and for a longer period.

Denny was FANTASTIC. We so enjoyed our full day tour of Seoul. He showed us lots of great sites, helped us see how the markets and street food work, picked a fabulous place for lunch, and made sure we knew the other sites we should have on our list for the rest of our time there. This was the perfect way to start our trip. In addition to that, Denny is a really nice person to spend a day with. We recommend him 100%!!! (And his English is phenomenal!!)
