Stephen BlakeUnited States
Kevin is a wonderfully kind man who provided me and my friend with an excellent tour of some of the "big" tourist sites of Seoul (plus the DMZ). He also picked an excellent Korean restaurant for a vegetarian lunch. We very much enjoyed our time with Kevin and would recommend him without reservation to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stephen, Hi, I am very happy to see your message here. I just came back from the East Korea Grand Tour to Gyeongju, Pohang, Busan city, etc. First of all I want to say "Thank you so much" for enjoying peaceful "Tours to Local." In my opinion it was the one of right purpose of ToursByLocals. Your praise made me very happy and I will work happier and happier, day by day. I wish all the happiness to you and your friend. And thank you again and hope to see you again. Best Regards, Kevin H.
Kevin is a real terrific guide with a lot of knowledge. His English is very good and he took us to very nice lunch places.

Leslie WolfUnited States
My friend and I took two tours with Kevin, the second of which he customized given some overlap between the two. He was responsive to our interests, accommodating, professional, and informative. His pride in and knowledge about his country came through in everything he did. We spent two lovely days in and around Seoul and couldn't be happier. This particular tour required us to join a larger group, but we continued to benefit from Kevin's personal attention. We highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leslie, Thank you so much again for another tour and review. I wished very blue sky but it was cloudy today so I tried all my best like every day and it was worked. You are really 'angel' who enjoyed my tour and I really appreciate it. See you again in some where at some time. Who knows 'there are many people who didn't visit Korea but there is no person who visited only once'. All the best to you. Best Regards, Kevin H.

Tom StepanchakUnited States
Kevin is very professional. He has deep knowledge and guided us every step of the way. He was very attentive, especially towards my 90 year old father.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tom, Thank you very much for your prompt great review. I was really happy to be your guide and especially your father who remind me my father. For your and your family's healthy and wealthy. Best Regards, Kevin H.
Zara HaimoUnited States
Kevin is an excellent guide and will get you to the highlights of the DMZ in his very comfortable car equipped with wifi so you never have to be out of touch. The walk through one of the tunnels dug by the North behind the front line positions of the South will give you a different perspective on that ongoing conflict. The only reason I rated this tour four stars is that we didn't really do much in the afternoon after returning to Seoul and we could have ended the day sooner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Zara, Nice to see you here in ToursByLocals again. First I want to thank you again for the tour with me. Please allow me to explain. (1) I was so worried about your knee conditions. It seems like I worried too much. (2) I had to meet total hours for three days because we had 3 days. e.g one day short the other long. (3) For the future travelers, this tour is combination of DMZ + Seoul Highlights for those who have very very busy schedule for a day for many destinations. Best Regards Kevin H.
John RogersNew Zealand
Due to a miscommunication Kevin organized our tour to go with another guide called Steven who was superb. Had a magic day, saw everything we came to see in relaxed friendly company. Looking forward to our next tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John Rogers, Thank you so much for your fast and best rating. Actually it was your great luck and my Plan B system. Because scarcely a tourist makes mistake on Tour Date and Time. Eventhough your mistake on the Tour date, very Luckly I have supporting guide who I could send to you at that time. Furthermore I had guide who studied in New Zealand who will be more familiar with you and your family. I have many guide pool so that I could send a guide from my Plan B guide pool. Thank you for enjoying :)

The DMZ was unfortunately closed without warning so we were unable to visit. But Kevin planned a backup plan and we had a great visit to the Temporary Palace and the Korean Folk Village.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, I am happy to see you here in ToursByLocals again. Thank you for your understanding my plan B. I understood the DMZ is clean milirary base and zone so the military needed to isolate themselves from civilian for just in case. Because the two Koreas (South Korea and North Korea) have seased fire after Korean war. Actually the war not ended even though DMZ is safe area. Thank you again for having me and enjoying my tours. All the best to you and your family. Best Regards, Kevin H.
