I can't thank Kevin enough for my tour. Kevin went above and beyond my expectations of finding information for my family. Because I can't speak Korean, Kevin translated my documentations for me and spoke with many people in order to find what I was looking for. He provided me with so much information that I would not have been able to get on my own. I am so thankful for my new friend, Kevin! Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cin Thank you very much for visiting South Korea and having me as your guide. The tour was may be very precious four to to find something. I was and am happy to be a part of your tour. Contact you if there is any news from the old gentleman. And I wish you Good Lucks to listen good news. Feel free to contact me at any time.

We had a wonderful day in Seoul, South Korea. Kevin did an excellent job of showing us around this exciting city and we saw far more than we would have had we gone with a ship tour. Kevin is very friendly and his suggestions on what to see next were very well thought out. The lunch was delicious! Kevin was great at pointing out the best photo spots which was very much appreciated. Two Thumbs Up!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, Great to see your comment here in ToursByLocals, Thank you so much for enjoying my tour. I wished that the ship would stay little longer so that I can show you more places, even though I tried to show as much as I can under the situation. Here is my small hope that this tour could be "a door to South Korea" so that you can visit again in the future. If you visit again please find ...

Our family had a fantastic time with Kevin on our 5-day tour around southern Korea. His relaxed style was inviting and he was very attentive to our desires for the trip. His advanced English enabled him to answer questions and share on a broad variety of topics: history, culture, nature, agriculture, city planning, food, etc. He went out of his way to ensure good communication for us with our local accommodations, and directed us to known restaurants where we could enjoy regional specialties. A pleasure!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dough and Barbara, This is Kevin H from Seoul, I hope your still remember me. I am also very happy to have been your family guide.

Because I tried to show more 'reality of South Korea' than just guiding. I wish all the best to you and your family and daughters. Thank you very much again for visi.. Best Regards, Kevin H

We had the pleasure to have Kevin for the DMZ tour the following day. Once again he picked us up promptly and got our tickets early. We were able to beat the crowds. Saturday is a busy day at the DMZ and Kevin always had us ahead of the crowds. He is very knowledgeable and suggests great vantage points for photos and restaurants in the area. It was a delight to be in his company. We definitely got our money's worth plus a priceless welcome and friendship. 5 stars to Kevin and ToursByLocals!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Duane, Thank you very much again for the second day in Seoul for DMZ. The DMZ tour is very unique in the world, in my opinion, thank you again for enjoying the different type of tour. It was very effective to start early and I appreciate your cooperation. I hope you can find South Korea again if you have any chance or pass-by to go to the other country. All the best to you and your family. Best Regards, Kevin H. Seoul South Korea.

Kevin was an outstanding tour guide. He met us promptly at our hotel and showed us so much of Seoul, more than we could have possibly done on our own. He whisked us through crowds and lines and made us feel special. Kevin's passion and enthusiasm for his country is contagious. He really goes through extra mile ensuring your safety and comfort. I was impressed with his showing us good photo angles and spots. Our van was air conditioned and comfortable. I highly recommend Kevin for your visit to Seoul.

We choose Kevin as our tour guide based on others' reviews. We are not disappointed. Kevin dressed with traditional costume since the first day we would see some palaces. He knew the best locations and time to see guards changing ceremony. He took many group pictures for us with some amazing skills. He is very patient and try to give us the best experience in Seoul. We had a packed second day tour and he took us to see all the night scenes until 11:30pm. We had a blast in Seoul.

This is the 2nd time that I booked Kevin for a private Tour of Seoul, and just like before he never fails to entertain and amaze me. My son, Ian, wrote the following review for Kevin : He is more than just a tour guide, he is one of the kindest, most polite, cheerful, and accomodating tour guides I have ever met. He is also very funny, and one great photographer. He also knows many facts about the places that we went to. I would like to give him 6/5 stars, but 5 will have to do.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alexis, Thank you so much for booking me again. It was my happiness that you and your family enjoyed my tour. And, it was very nice that we traveled like friends or family. Thank you again for make me feel comfortable. Especially you and your family friendly manner made me more happier so that I could do more accommodating tour.

Kevin provided us with an outstanding tour of the DMZ and an authentic lunch at a traditional rural restaurant where he explained all the healthy dishes we were eating. During the tour of the Gyeongbokgung Palace, we could see how proud he is of his country and heritage. He knows many interesting details! He knows the tricks of the tour to the Third Tunnel. He was able to get us the last four tickets for the monorail! Thank you, Kevin, For an excellent adventure! BTW, You are a very safe driver!

Kevin was great. He was dressed in traditional costumes. He was very knowledgeable. He spoke English with a slight accent, but you could understand him. Was not offended if asked to repeat or explain. I do recommend Kevin as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stanley, Thank you very much for visiting Seoul and having me as your guide. Yes I dress up in traditional costumes (Hanbok) when it is "Seoul Highlights, Seoul Must See" tour. It was half day but also included a palace so I was dressed in Hanbok. I tried to change my accent according to where my customers are from. I will try to be more familiar with travelers' accent. May be, in my opinion, half-day is not enough time for us to be familiar with but I will do my best+. Thank you again. Best ...

Kevin is a fantastic tour guide! We loved his energy, enthusiasm and care. He helped us develop an appreciation and love of Korean history and culture in just one day. He took us to a variety of sights that covered a breadth of Korean culture, managed our time expertly, took our family's needs into account, answered all our questions and had us back to the airport in plenty of time. Our teenage boys later said that Kevin was a highlight of our entire trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Monica, Thank you so much for having me as your private tour guide during you short stay in Seoul. I am happy to be your guide and I see it was good introduction to South Korea. I hope you can visit again in the future for longer days e.g. 7 - 15 days. Please remember me and ToursByLocals for you next visit to every where in the world (Kevin in Seoul and South Korea, ToursByLocals all over the world). I hope you and your family are well at home.
