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.

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.

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 :)

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 :)

Tour: #132383, Masan and Busan tour, Busan, South Korea    view tour
Date: Jun 3/15

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.

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 :)

Joon was awesome. Very accomodating and provided great service. With his help, we saw way more of Busan than we could have ever imagined if we did it on our own. He was pleasant, gave us ample time, and was good with modifying the schedule if we changed our minds. He picked us up and dropped us off, door to door. Thanks Joon, Busan was unbelievable, we really appreciate all you did for us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I really appreciate your comment.

He took us to lunch on the beach & the eel was delicious.We walked along the Taejongdae Cliffs which gave us an interesting visual of the coast line.Our party was so delighted with his ability to discuss the Korean way of life in Busan & he responded to any/all of our questions with considered reflection.I believe he understood that we were interested in more than a tour of monuments & places.Most importantly as Americans with strong connections to Korea we came away with a new sense of the Korean spirit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for lovely comment! I hope that Economy in US and South of Korea would be well. and I also had a wonderful time with you. thank you!
