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.

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!:

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.

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!

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.

We had booked Denny for both 7/6 & 7/7, the 6th for his Seoul city tour and the 7th for the Folk Village and Fortress. Because of rain on the 7th, Denny suggested we switch the tour dates since one required more outside activity than the other - good flexibility and smart thinking on Denny's part! Denny has excellent knowledge and insight to all the venues and knows his way around the city like the back of his hand. He also tailored the venues to our interest; ie gave a menu and we selected - perfect!

Kun-yong in many ways was a very good tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the sights and their history. He was also very helpful and tried to make things more convenient for us by running to get the car while we finished walking through Bukchon. The reason we gave him 2 stars was that either he didn't listen or was not very flexible. We kept asking him to slow down but it always felt like he was rushing us. In addition, his driving is very herky jerky. We would not tour with him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As far as I remember, you and your parents agreed with my suggestion that move quickly and visit more attractions in a limited time. During the tour, your father doesn’t seem interested in my explanation at all and he always walked ahead of me and it made me rush more than necessary. He just easily complained about the tour for no particular reason. I feel sorry about that point. Anyhow,I will take your advice and comment in good parts to improve my service quality more positive way. Thank you.

Denny is very personable and has a detailed understanding of Korean culture (and the best time of day to visit tourist attractions in Seoul). Denny arrived on time and went above and beyond to accommodate our itinerary. An unexpected highlight was Denny's guide through the National Palace Museum - the depth of his knowledge of Korean history was extraordinary and insightful. We travelled as a party of 3 adults and 3 children - we all appreciated Denny and highly recommend him.

Danny provided a fantastic one day tour of Seoul hitting all the highlights. His suggestions were excellent and he accommodated all our requests. Danny is fully experienced and very knowledgeable about his city. He took us to a local restaurant that we would not have found by ourselves. We have used tour guides all over the world and found Danny to be among the best. We cannot recommend him more highly.

Denny was quite proficient, professional and accomodating. At first he didnt want to accept our big group of 16 but eventually he reconsidered and engaged a bus to accomodate us. We even got him to drive us around for a whole day shopping the day after our tour.

Denny was everything we could have asked for - reliable, considerate, flexible and sensitive. He gave us an excellent understanding of Seoul and we had a quite wonderful day together. He was most sensitive to what we wanted to see and constantly changed his planned itinerary based on our interests. We wanted traditional Korean food for lunch in a restaurant without tourists and he found us the perfect place. We highly recommend him.

Kun-yong helped me to wheel my mother the whole trip (4 days) sunshine or rainy. The road was uneven and not suitable for the wheelchair. Without Kun-yong, my mother couldn't see that many places. This is her last trip overseas because of her health. I booked private tour because of her condition and I'm glad that I did. Kun-yong went beyond my expectations. He was caring, patience, helpful and flexible with the tour plan. Thank again Kun-yong for fulfilling my mother's dream.

If my group of six could have given Denny a 6-star rating, we would have. This gentleman went out of his way to locate the best tour sites for us, and even offered to come back on another day if we were disappointed. That is his very special desire to make his clients happy. Nothing was too difficult for him and, most importantly, he ensured my bunch of foodies was happy with our meals and that we got the best value for our money. We would be more than happy to engage our friend Denny again!

Denny was great! He accompanied us through all our transfer details at the airport and the hotel. He was concerned with maximizing the time we had to see Seoul under less then wonderful circumstances since we only had a short layover in Seoul and he was contacted at the last minute. I could not recommend him more highly. He explained things thoroughly and gave us a wonderful introduction into his country.
