Willow is a an amazing guide and a very lovely person. She is extremely considerate and when we asked her any questions, she made so much effort to give us more than enough information. She went beyond the tour and took us shopping after, which was so nice of her. Cannot fault her in any way. Most memorable tour with Willow. Will definitely use her services in future and highly recommend her to anyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your precious time in Busan with me. I wish you and all your family all the best. Thank you. :)

Willow was a 5 out of 5 and we would give her a 10 out of 5 if we could! She was so well organized and scheduled the itinerary so that we experienced the special features of each activity. She was very attentive to each person's needs and interests! She was thoughtful, accommodating, knowledgeable, kind, generous, informative and warm. 100 words is not enough space to describe just how great she was. We feel so lucky to have had her as our guide for 2 days. She has left us with very fond memories of Busan

BeoDeul (Willow) went above and beyond our expectations. She was waiting for us when we got off of our cruise ship. Her vehicle is clean and comfortable. She is absolutely knowledgeable about the area. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. She took us to a place for lunch, which was amazing. That lunch was unforgettable. We had a perfect day with her, and afterwards, we could not stop talking about her!! I HIGHLY recommend Willow as a tour guide. PS - Busan was a great city to visit.

Willow was a gem, a gracious hostess and an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable of the two sites: Haedong Yonggungsa Temple and the Gamcheon Cultural Village. We received personal insights of the cultural values shared by the Korean people. Since weather was windy and rainy, she dropped us off and picked us up at the entrance to keep us dry. What made our tour special was her lunch selection. We had a very unique selection of fresh seafood from a local village area and was topped off wit

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for sharing your precious time in Busan with me and giving me such a compliment. It was unforgettable day for me to meet the tourists who really enjoyed Korean raw fish, real one! :) I wish you all the best. Hope you meet you in Hawaii some day. Thank you! :)

Willow (her 'nickname' ) was the perfect guide to Busan. She skillfully navigated us through the city to see its highlights and gave us the necessary historical and cultural contexts to enjoy and appreciate what we saw. She also was very fun to spend time with. We always knew we were in very good hands. We would highly recommend her.

Just got back from a week trip to Busan, South Korea. I've taken several private tours in the past, and in most situations the private guides are good. Willow, however, is an excellent guide! She was professional and courteous and you could tell she took pride in presenting her hometown of Busan. Willow sent a itinerary in advance for my review but is flexible if needed. She even modified the itinerary on the go too keep the one child with us interested. I would hire Willow again without hesitation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a compliment! Thank you so much for sharing your precious time in Busan with me. It’s always joyful for me to travel around Busan with tourists. I wish you all the best. Thank you! :)

"Willow" is fabulous! Busan was a port that we weren't expecting much from as it was a South Korea deviation on our circle Japan cruise. Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! Our visit was amazing and a true highlight of our cruise. She drove us in her super comfy, immaculate van with expertise and skill. Her English is excellent and easily understood, even for my profoundly hearing impaired husband. If you book a tour in Busan, book with Willow, she is terrific!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for sharing your precious time in Busan with me and such a compliment! I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves in Busan, which always encourages me to be better guide. I wish you all the best. Thank you!

The Busan tour is the best tour we had during our vacation here in South Korea. Our guide, BeoDeul, was very nice and accommodating. She even taught us how to eat some of the Korean dishes that we ordered and took us to a cafe where we can see Busan at night. I would definitely recommend her as a guide to our friends and colleagues back home who wish to see Busan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your precious time in Busan with me. I’m so glad that it was the best tour in Korea. What a compliment!! I wish you and your family all the best. Have a safe trip all the way home. Thank you so much.

BeoDeul is absolutely amazing!!! She is incredibly knowledgeable, speaks good English, so kindhearted and considerate. We visited Haedong Yonggungsa, Gamcheon Culture Village, and Jagalchi Market and more! The whole time she stopped at amazing sights to take pictures, explained the culture and shared Busan's history. And because I am BTS (K-pop) fan, she found an awesome market spot with gifts! :D Even when I got sick after lunch, we stopped and she got me tea. She adjusted the time accordingly. LOVE HER!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh, thank you so much for such a nice feedback, Turner and Jenny. It makes me happy and occurs me pleasant moments. :) I’m good and do believe everything goes well soon!!! I hope you and your family all the best. Thank you. :)

Willow was an excellent guide. We were faced with typhoon tapah, so Willow rearranged our itinerary at the last minute to fit in the outdoor places on day one, and found indoor places the day of the typhoon. She was very knowledgeable and we learned quite a lot about the history of places we went to. She took us to try foods we wanted to eat, and accommodated places we wanted to go. She was so pleasant and thoughtful. Busan was worth visiting because of Willow. Thanks Willow for an unforgettable trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your precious time in Busan with me. I’m glad to hear that it was enjoyable despite the typhoon. I hope you that would be good excuse for you to visit Busan again in cherry blossoms season. :) I wish you and your family all the best. Thank you so much!

Willow is an excellent professional guide. She is attentive and knows her facts at her finger tips! We travelled east to west and then back to east, quite a lot of driving, but she was so accommodative and we finished at 8 pm, 2 hrs more than allocated time! She even bought a packet of snacks for me thinking I am travelling by train. How thoughtful! I highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: OMG! You left this such a compliment feedback on your way to Gyeongju?? Thank you so much, Anna! :) It was so fun and pleasant me touring with you. Hope you have a safe trip all the way home. All the best!

Willow was an absolute pleasure. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. She took care of us and we felt like family in our short time together. We covered a ton of ground and she was flexible and adjusted things on the spot according to our groups desired. She has lived in the area her whole life so we truly were toured by a local who knew history in a personal way. I would love to visit Busan again.

Willow was a phenomenal guide! She went above and beyond our expectations. We were 2 families with 4 kids (10-16 yrs old) who wanted a customized tour that mixed the history/pusan sights/personal connection. She anticipated needs (e.g., calling ahead to get passcodes where we were staying, made sure we could get in), was personable and fun (e.g., knowing the names of everyone in our group), was flexible (e.g., helping us to find medicine and the gravesite of ancestors), and was knowledgeable. Loved her

We were able to see more parts of the city compared to the cruise ship excursions especially since we had a late docking and could only fit in a half day tour. Since Willow drove, there was no additional taxi fare. The Tours By Locals website is easy to use to reserve tours and payments are secure with Paypal. It helps that we were able to communicate with Willow through email from our home and cruise ports. Willow did her best and we had a very nice tour.

We are so happy that we had Willow to guide us around Busan. She is an amazing guide, so nice, and extremely fun. She took us to the most beautiful places all over Busan, and we never would have seen them without her. She was very attentive to making sure that all of us were feeling well, especially me with all the stairs we climbed! We loved the restaurant she took us to, and the best part of our day was that we felt like she was part of the family by the time the tour ended. We will miss Willow!

We were visiting Korea on a mother/daughter trip and wanted a private tour of Busan. We had several different tours throughout our trip. Willow's tour was by far our favorite and made our trip so special! Her itinerary was catered exactly to our interests. She had thought out every detail, the meals were delicious, the scenery amazing and the places we visited gave us a real understanding of Korean history! We would love to visit again and see more! If you have time for one tour, this is the one to take!
