We did this tour on a day off in Busan with fellow musicians during an orchestra tour in South Korea. We had a splendid day with an amazing guide; Hong who was a last minute stand in for BK because of urgent happening in close family. Impressive that this change could be done on such short notice. Thank you all. Our group learned a lot during driving to and from, about the Korean history and about Korea today. The day turned out quite busy with a lot of stops and wonderful sights, Thank you Hong.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this review even we couldn't meet each other! My son is still in the hospital but recovering slowly. That was an accident for my son and I couldn't deliver the tour. Thank you for accepting such an urgent change and I am glad that you enjoyed the tour with Hong! Have a great day!

Bk was an ideal guide for our family trip in Busan. He was very mindful of, courteous to and considerate to the needs of my 86-year-old mother. He brought us to the must-see places in Busan, even modifying our itinerary so my mother would not have a hard time going around the city. He was very jolly and knowledgeable; and he spoke English very well. He was good in taking photos. My mother and I highly recommend Bk to anyone who would like to have a great time seeing the best of Busan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Francis to choose me as your guide in Busan and about the review! You and your mom also have very good personality and good smile. I will not forget mom wearing slippers everywhere in a cold Winter. I hope you can recover as soon as possible! Have a great weekend!

BK is a wonderful guide! We went to Gyeongju and he was a wealth of information. Also, he handled logistical details well because we had to compete is many Korean school children on tour that day, so he rearranged our schedule so that we could not be with the crowds. It rained all day but we were able to have a good tour still. He has a very clean vehicle and is a very safe driver, a we especially enjoyed the Korean lunch we ate with him. I highly recommend BK, you won't be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kristine for this comment. You finally made my long long day today haha. Yes it was wet all day but you two also never complained about it and tried to enjoy the tour. I also appreciate that! Hope you enjoy every single day of your long travel to Asia!

My friends and I took a 2 days/1 night tour to Gyeongju with BK in early Oct. It was a very enjoyable side trip. We were hit right smack with typhoon mitag on the first day of our tour and BK tried hard to find other indoor sites to make up for the outdoor sites that we were not able to go because of the incessant rain. BK is a very considerate and knowledgeable guide. The timing for our tour was well managed and suited our pace. The vehicle used for the tour was also very clean and new. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh! This was nice surprise Cindy! Thank you for the review!! You remember the name of the typhoon(Mitag-unforgettable). Don't forget that we visited bamboo forest in Ulsan on the first day which was outdoor! We had almost no one there except us. It was really unusual! And I prayed very hard on the first night that the second day to be no-rain and I made it haha.

BK is truly a human being. We were a group of eight seniors. He was most responsive and attentive to our needs, took us to a delicious local restaurant, took us to the important sites, shared interesting information, and was just delightful. Everyone in our group was truly grateful and appreciative and thought we were just plain lucky to have had him as our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ms. Gee for this great review and yes I m truly human being! I also had nice time with you all, Especially at the lunch! Have a nice day!

Bk was an excellent guide. We had a great time with him. He picked us up in a comfortable wagon to accommodate the 5 of us and proceeded to show us around Busan. He showed us the old and the new areas of his city. He took us to a small restaurant for a Korean barbeque lunch which we also enjoyed. I read an article about a 'pancake' which sounded very nice, so BK took us to a mall and bought us all a "hotdog'. Bk was very knowledgable of his city and country and answered all our questions. Great guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Murray for this good review!! I also had nice time with you! We almost headed to COSTCO for the first time in my tour guide life! If we had two days, we've definitely been there! Beomeosa temple was nice since it was all green and had some water in a stream as well. I like it when it's summer especially. hope you enjoyed your whole trip! Thank you again and have a great day!

BK was on time. He came with a clean comfortable vehicle. We were brought to all the highlights in Busan. Loved the local restaurant he took us to. His English was excellent and was very accommodating. Loved when we got to the temple before the tour buses and saw them all coming as we were leaving.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this review! It was nice that we arrived to the temple earlier than the crowd! I am glad that you enjoyed in Busan! Have a great day!

BK is a great guide and driver. We highly recommend him for everything. He went above and beyond to make certain that our visit to Busan was remarkable. He is really kind and personable, as well as knowledgeable, so we felt like we had a really good but short immersion into South Korea. Only wish we had more time there and with him. Jay Murter

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this great review! I also enjoyed with you and your friends! Hope you can visit to Busan again in the future! Take good care of yourself!

BK is the best tour guide we ever had in Korea. He's very informative, knowledgeable and very kind. We were party of 4 and two were senior citizens. We did not feel any pressure from him to hurry up. He's very consider of our safety and he makes sure we are comfortable most of the time. His van was comfortable. We are really happy with his service. We highly recommend him. THANK YOU BK FOR MAKING OUR BUSAN TRIP MEMORABLE AND PLESANT.��

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this kind review. You made my day! It was really hot day in Busan but I also enjoyed the day with you. Thank you again for the Ginseng chicken soup and the Macaron ice cream:)

Had a fabulous time in Busan. It was pouring rain the day our cruise ship was in town, but didn't detract from the fun because of our excellent guide. The itinerary was well thought out and accommodated the interests of all in the group. The trip was a great cultural experience from the food, sights, to BK's commentaries. This visit gave us new appreciation of Korea in the course of a day. I am surprised how much we saw in spite of the brevity of the visit. Highly recommend. Thanks, BK!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elise for this great review! You made my day!! You have to come back to Korea one day to see its clear day! have a nice day!!

Had only 1 day in Busan and wanted to plan out a etailed itinerary covering all the must see sights within the short duration. BK was prompt and responsive and helped chart out an itinerary based on what i was looking for. He was there at the airport well in time, was very courteous and took good care of our needs and ensured our safety whereever we went. Drove and guided us around, gave us a good glimpse of the city and also took us to some nice view points. Overall, we had a great time in Busan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this review Mr. Vikas! The BBQ lunch next to the beach was memorable for me. I hope you can come back one day and share more about cricket!

BK was an excellent tour guide for our Busan City tour. He took us to a good variety of places, from a beach to a temple, shopping areas. cultural places, a fish market and a good view point over looking the city. He also took us to a good inexpensive Korean BBQ place for lunch. He was very personable and answered all of our questions. We would highly recommend using BK as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this comment James! Luckily we had a nice weather on the day! I also enjoyed very much talking with international group members! Also glad that you enjoyed abalone:)

BK what a wonderful guide he is. He has very good command of English and very much easy going. Not only he is passionate about the city he loves, he also has a lot of stories to tell. Not only that, he takes great care of elderly guests by adjusting the walking speed and even bringing the car to you to save you from walking any further. He is rated #1 in my book so far.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this great review! I regret that I didn't take any photographs with your group! Therefore you must come back to Busan! Tell everyone "hello"

AWESOME TOUR!! BK met us at the cruise ship terminal with a large comfy van and took us on a full day of seeing all the fantastic sights without any of the tourist crowds. He also accommodated every one of our many special requests including a noodle lunch for my son, pharmacy stop for meds, and multiple Starbucks for an elusive hard-to-find mug. We saw everything there was to see with nothing missed and especially loved the street food too. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day .. Thanks BK!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great review. It was not only you who enjoyed the day but also me as well with your family! I enjoyed the noodle lunch, beaches, street food and finding a mug mission! Pleasure to meet you and your family! you were my first group of this year. Thank you again:)
