Kevin was great! He was very knowledgeable and we had a memorable experience with him. The tunnels and DMZ were a very unique, singular experience and Kevin's helpful guidance was greatly appreciated. 10/10 would recommend to anyone! Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey, How happy I am! to see your review here. Your happiness is my happiness. It was a bit difficult tour to do DMZ and Palace on the same day but we made it. Congratulations and thank you for your strength. It is raining a lot here in Seoul today, 11 Nov. Winter is just around corner. I hope another beautiful Snow Season in Seoul, South Korea. Thank you again Jeffrey. All the best to you and your family. Best Regards, Kevin H.

DMZ is interesting but can be toured without a guide. Cant change your day even if a private tour, is dependant on the government bus. Be sure to check what areas you are able to visit as they are not all open all the time. DMZ is a long bus ride from Seoul/Cruise terminals. Although booked as a private tour of DMZ only we were shuttled to a shopping souvenir/grocery store for a not appreciated stop. Don't recommend Tour by Local guide Kevin, very rude and stressed man that ruined our experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I apologize that you're not satisfied with my tour. On the other hand, Joining the DMZ shuttle bus was clearly said in the tour description and we exchanged message before the tour and I emphasized it. I never brought the group to shopping they just walked there without listening to me. Sightseeing point and souvenir shop are located together, I never introduce to shop. I regret I didn’t have time to “show me”. I was just very busy to gather members and protect them from drinking. Thank you for coming

My wife and I had a fabulous 2 days with Kevin in Seoul. Listing everywhere we went would use up my allotted number of letters. We saw everything guide books recommended we see and more utilizing the subways and walking, our preferences. Kevin's fund of knowledge, English and sense of humor are all excellent. He accurately gauged the amount of detail and history we wanted and didn't go into unnecessary minutiae. I have already recommended him to friends and am extremely happy he was our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, Thank you very much and I am happy to see your 5 stars review here. The walking tour was also very fun with me too. Your explanation about how well you can walk was very helpful for me to design the walking tour. I really appreciate that you and your wife walked so well. Actually I didn't expect that you could walk so well. Your walking made our tour much more easy and enjoyable. I hope all of you are well and at home in one piece. All the best to you. Best Regards, Kevin H. .

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, Thank you very much for enjoying my tour of 'Seoul Highlights, Seoul Must See'. To look back on the tour, it looks like that I also enjoyed the tour a lot.

Kevin was a great guide who really looked out for our needs! He took my 73yr old mother and I all over Seoul, we covered a lot, at all times he was attentive to our needs, especially my mother who isn't as mobile. He easily went between Korean (for my mother) and English (for me). He was very knowledgeable about EVERYTHING! His van is also very comfy and air conditioned :) We really had an amazing time due his guiding, driving and photo taking. I enjoyed seeing some untouched parts of Seoul too!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eunice, Thank you very much for your feedback here. I also enjoyed meeting you and your mom. My mom also very old so meeting your mom feel like meeting my mom who I cannot see often. In Korea there is saying that "travel while your heart is BEATING (young and lovely), you cannot travel if your legs are beating (shaking n weak). Please enjoy tour with mom while mom is strong enough to walk. Thank you so much again. All the best to you and your family. Best Regards, Kevin H.

My husband and I loved our tour to Gyeongju and Busan with Kevin. He was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable on history and culture and a careful driver. We also liked how he quickly adapted the itinerary to weather conditions and our personal interests. He managed to show us everything we wanted to see in a short time. We especially liked the authentic, local restaurants he took us to and the foods he recommended. It took a bit of time to get used to his accent but when we did his English was great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paula, Thank you very much for your review here and I am happy that you are at home in one piece. Thank you again for enjoying my tour to Gyeongju and Busan. It is very famous places and historical sites in South Korea. I was honored to be your guide. I meet many people from all over the world so I have been tried to pronounce customer-friendly, as a result, this made me "mixed-accent". I will do more for "American-friendly pronunciation" also. Thank you very much again. Best Regards, Kevin

He is a remarkably kind man with a good sense of humor who truly went out his way to make us comfortable and making sure we got the most out of out trip. He speaks good English and is particularly knowledgeable on Korean history and Buddhism and we learned a lot about the three Korean dynasties all the way from the unification in 676 to the Korean War.

We were very happy ToursbyLocal could arrange this much appreciated welcome/night tour on short notice. Two hours after landing (8 pm) Kevin welcomed us in our hotel and off we went into the night. Kevin showed us many aspects of Seoul: eating out at night market, strolling along river stream surrounded with greenery, flowers and high rise office buildings, feeling sacred temple grounds and experiencing the 24/7 Koreans' shopping addiction. Kevin, thanks for your kindness and excellent introduction.

Likeable, reliable, knowledgeable. Excellent Tour. Outstanding service. Kevin was very helpful with small details.

The best tour out of a 12 Day Far East Cruise. Thanks again Kevin, Spot ON!!!

We spent 4 days with Kevin and we had a wonderful time. Here is a little story. We were getting tired at the end of day since we did both a full-day tour and night tour on the same day. At first, we just planned to be back to the hotel earlier and cut the night tour short. Kevin told us that we should at least drive by the night view and decide if we really wanted to pass it ... well, he's absolutely right. We gladly that we made the stop and saw the spectacular night view in Seoul!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeff, I am very happy to see your comments here and further more you spend 4 days with me. I wished I didn't make you so tired because Seoul is also very nice at night.

Kevin was honestly such a wonderful tour guide! My family were a bit late coming down from the hotel, but he was completely understanding, and was only concerned about us being able to see the demonstration at the palace. Kevin has a happiness that's just contagious; my family and I loved him! It was easy to tell he had plenty of experience as a tour guide, and he constantly made sure we were comfortable. The tour even extended a bit longer than scheduled, but he was in a great mood from beginning to end

Kevin was very accommodating, rearranging the day so we could spend longer at certain places of interest (and added snack / shopping breaks!) and cutting out others to fit with our requests. He was also very kind, going out of his way to collect our stroller, when the toddler in our group decided it was nap time, and moving the minivan to save us the walk. Kevin provided us with interesting tidbits of info on the sights we were seeing - overall, a friendly warm intro to Seoul, suitable for first timers.

Actual rating is 3.5 but I rated up cuz he is a nice fella, maybe too nice. Seriously. Every step we took we had to "watch out". He repeated things too often, including things we just said!! Seoul doesnt have mega attractions like in Beijing or Bangkok so there wasn't much interesting to speak of to.begin with so Kevin drew out what there was to speak to the point we had to say stop. He did ask of us what would make the tour better. As I said nice fella, the day and the guide just didn't jive with is.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melisa, Thank you for your visit to Seoul. I will upgrade more about 'different Korean Things from China, Thailand, etc.' Maybe 8 hours too short for making the destinations fascinating or my explanation was not enough. Thank you for the feedback.

After a first day of seeing the "big" Seoul sites, we had asked Kevin to show us what he thought was cool about Seoul and its surroundings. We had a very special tour that included a ferry ride on the Yellow Sea that took us to some rural islands (a nice break from the city). We also got to see a peaceful place in the city, too. It was a lovely day that met our wants/needs perfectly.

Kevin's tour exceeded our expectations. We would have never had so many enjoyable experiences without his expertise, guidance and genial company. This special message is from my 84-year-old aunt who just loved the tour. "Dear Kevin, my gratitude to you for a wonderful, unforgettable tour of Seoul. I learned many things about Korea—history, culture, food, and way of life. I appreciated your patience and thoughtfulness shown to this senior citizen. Have a wonderful, healthy life! Thank you."

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anne, Thank you so much that you didn't foget me from last October. Yes I enjoyed too during my guide. Forthermore, it is really my pleasure that the tour became 'wonderful, unforgettable tour of Seoul'. I hope all the best, happpiness to you and your aunt. Best Regards, Kevin H.

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.

Kevin did a great job of meeting our requests. He was particularly good during the earthquake when he made sure we were safe & had access to news information. He also had to make some changes to our itinerary because the National Museum was unexpectedly closed the next day. He found interesting, enjoyable sites for us to visit instead and adjusted our itinerary to fit the museum in another day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jerold, Thank you so much again for your visiting and traveling with me. I am happy that you enjoyed my tour. The earthquake was the first one which people can feel, past hundreds years. Now everything is back to normal. If you don't mind, I hope you can introduce ToursByLocals and me to your friends so that we can have more visitors. All the best to you and hope to see you again. Best Regards, Kevin H.

No knowledge of the history city or where to take us, and very expensive for the service received.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Yvelisse, Before booking I said many times "this is foodie not for history and sightseeing and if you want to visit Gyeongbokgung Palace and N Seoul Tower please book Seoul Highlights Seoul Must See" but you booked Foodie Tour for saving money. And you said it was very useful tour. Embarassed!! Best Regards, Kevin H.

My brother and I were given a tour of Seoul by Kevin, and we would like to rate it 5/5 stars. Kevin was friendly, efficient and had a great knowledge of all the sites we visited as well as Korean culture and history in general. I would certainly recommend him as a guide for any prospective visitors to Seoul.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jai, Thank you so much for your reference, eventhough it was midnight. Praise make me happy to meet your recommendation so that your friends can enjoy the same or more enjoyable tour. Thank you again for enjoying my tour in Korea. Best Regards, Kevin H.
