We had a private tour with Denny on June 13. Denny was very accommodating of our large group and various requests from the old and young in our group. We also got to visit the few places we picked. Denny went above and beyond of his role and was genuinely concerned for our well being. When my niece caused a bike accident, he was very worried and attended promptly to my niece's injury. He then advised us on local customs to compensate the cyclist. I would definitely recommend Denny for group tours.

Highly recommend Denny as a guide while in South Korea! Denny spoke excellent English and provided an extremely informative tour! Would book with him again! Denny not only provided great DMZ history and background but also wonderful insights to South Korea's history and advancement to the beautiful modern nation they are today. I especially likes going down to see the tunnel dug by the North Koreans. Denny took me to a great authentic South Korean lunch while sitting on cushions on the floor.

We had a amazing day with Denny exploring Seoul. From the Seoul Tower to the Changdeokgung Palace to the various markets around the city. Denny is very knowledgeable about the city and the country as well as history and current events. I feel we came away with a much better understanding of the city and the Korean people. Denny was really very flexible and had great English! All in all, this was an excellent intro to Seoul and South Korea! Highly recommend!

Denny was our excellent tour guide for this full day trip. We were on a cruise and the port of Seoul was closed due to fog. I was able to get in touch with Denny and we postponed our tour with him by a few hours. He was thoroughly professional and obliging. He customized the tour to meet our specific needs. We asked him to take us to a book store to buy a gift and he was extremely accommodating. He is an excellent driver, too. We highly recommend both the tour and our guide!

Mr. Denny was a wonderful tour guide! He toured us in Seoul and answered all of our questions. He even helped us with our heater problem event hough it's not part of his job. And even became our family photographer too. There was also a problem with a car hitting my mom and also me (almost!) after our namdaemun shopping and he tried to help us and explained to us what we can do and even say sorry in behalf of the old woman's poor driving skills. Thank you again, hope to see you with your wife soon!:

Denny was an excellent guide during our three day trip around Seoul, ending in Incheon. He was helpful in recommending places to see around the city and was able to answer any questions we had about the history and culture of Korea. He also had funny anecdotes of his past travel and tour guide expirences that kept us entertained. He was especially helpful in explaining the local cuisine, taking time to find the right restaurant and marketplaces to accommodate my picky children. Would book with him again!

Denny was awesome. We had a 10 hour layover in Seoul (5 am until 3 pm), and he met us at the airport at 5:30. Just a quick note, if you are booking, allow an hour to get bags and get through customs. He had to wait for us. However, we were lucky enough to be there on 1/1/18, so due to the holiday - no traffic! Denny has great pride in his city and went above and beyond to make sure we saw the highlights in the short time we had available. Highly recommend!

Denny is a very friendly, knowledgable guide. His tours met all our needs perfectly. He is patient and flexible, as we were travelling with 2 young kids. He is super honest and trustworthy. He knew the little tricks and timings on the trips to ensure optimal timing and experience for us. He went beyond to help us before the trip and also stayed longer on the last day to help with a medical issue. We have already recommended Denny to a friend, and will recommend him for anyone visiting Korea. Great guy!

Mr. Kun-yong is a very professional guide. He was always trying his best to accommodate our needs and provided us with practical advices. When we were cold & hungry, he bought us some local cakes to ease our hunger. He was always eager to show & tell us more of the places he guided us. On the return, my son left a camera strap in his van, he notified us immediately and sent the item back to our hotel the next morning despite us telling him not to do so. Million thanks to Kun-yong!!!

Kun-young (aka Denny) did an excellent job. I am really glad that he offered a Seoul tour where I get to plan where I want to go. He was able to show me some of Seoul's new sites which includes the modern Lotte Tower. Also he introduced me to some very delicious food at the Gwangjang market, which is a must see if you love Korean food so much. Also my visit to the modern National Museum of Korea was great since he was able to explain to me the 5,000 year Korean history. Hope to see him again.

Myself and family visited Seoul, we really wanted to visit the DMZ and have a tour around the city. I would highly recommend a guide if you are visiting Seoul and Denny would be my recommendation. We have had many guides over the years and Denny is by far the best one we have ever had. He was punctual, helpful, considerate, extremely knowledgable and very aware of the Western ways with fantastic English. If we returned to Seoul we would be asking for Denny again.

Also being just 1h out of Seoul we saw the rural and agricultural side of Korea with a total different landscape. Kun-Yong was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw everything we wanted. This tour is very versatile from market and monestary to seeing North Korea just on the other side of the river and more. We can highly recommend this tour and Kun-Yong to anyone who wants to see more of Korea than Seoul in a short timeframe.

Denny helped our family make the most of our time in Seoul. He is punctual, knowledgeable, service-minded and ready to walk the extra mile if needed. We can recommend his services wholeheartedly. We found him to be a great time-saver because of his detailed knowledge of e.g. DMZ procedures. Also, to be able to find a bathroom for my youngest son within 10 minutes despite heavy rush hour traffic in Seoul, that is invaluable to me as a single parent.

Excellent tour that included all the main highlights. It was so much more efficient to have a guide and a vehicle but we prefer it when the guide has a driver so that we don't have to waste time trying to find places to park because we can just be dropped off and picked up. His english was impeccable and his knowledge of the city and the history very good.

How lucky we were to be able to have Denny Yu (Kun-yong) guide us for the 2nd time in a year. This time he took us to the DMZ. The facts he provided and the insights of the S. Korean people were very enlightening. Denny has lived in S. Korea his entire, his stories about his upbringing and what he has become are inspiring. He was also able to give a short tour of Incheon (the port we arrived in). If you are looking for a guide in the Seoul area don't look any further than Denny

He also bonded with my 9- year old son who grew fond of him. He is knowledgeable about the history of the places he brought us to.

Our tour guide just did his job. He showed up as organized and on-your-mark- get set-go! He seemed in a huge rush and had no pre set plan! He raced in speed walk style Meters ahead of us in a panic to breeze thru the allotted time. He shared no personal warmth and he surprised us with add on charges on a tour we already paid generously for. We agreed to pay the airport toll charge and we paid 250.00 ifor a half day tour but then he added parking costs and admittance to The Royal Palace - excessive?

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: First of all, I'd like to apologize if I offended you so many ways unintentionally, I'll take your comments to heart seriously and make greater efforts to upgrade my service quailty. However, I wish you would be more considerate when you criticize somebody behind his back. As I explained on tour day, the [Seoul half day tour] program what you booked was not included any extra costs such as admission, parking fee, airport pick serivce. Please, check out the booking details again. Thank you.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals appreciate all feedback and are committed to publishing every review; however, it should be clarified that for this tour 'Meal & entrance ticket & parking fee' were correctly detailed as additional costs in the 'What's Extra' section.

Then off to Naksana Temple, aand a lookout tower at Sokcho. As the weather cleared it was up Mt Seorak then a nice hike and a great dinner. Denny speaks english well and was most informative, We enjoyed our tour immensely.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michael & Janet, It was a my big pleasure to be with you and I'm so glad to hear that you are satisfied with my service in Seoul. I hope you enjoy a wonderful time in Jeju island as well. Thank you.

We started at the Fortress, but already during the 1hour ride there Denny gave us a lot of background info and history. Once there he tailored the walking and climbing to our desired level of activity. Ditto at the Folk Village, and that left us time at the end of the day that we were able to add the Seoul Tower - very forthcoming of Denny to offer that vs dropping us early! Denny has excellent knowledge and knows his way thru all the venues like the back of his hand.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan Baer, It is very kind and considerate of you giving me a good review and rating. I know that I still have a lot of improvements to make and I will try harder to meet the expectations of my clients for future tours. I sincerely hope that you can have a safe & great time in Mongolia and take care of your health above all things all the times. Thanks again for your generous comments on my guide service in Seoul.

We had booked Denny for both 7/6 & 7/7, the 6th for his Seoul city tour and the 7th for the Folk Village and Fortress. Because of rain on the 7th, Denny suggested we switch the tour dates since one required more outside activity than the other - good flexibility and smart thinking on Denny's part! Denny has excellent knowledge and insight to all the venues and knows his way around the city like the back of his hand. He also tailored the venues to our interest; ie gave a menu and we selected - perfect!

Upon landing I had an email from Denny stating he was at airport and exactly where he'd meet us - which he did. We had a pleasant & informative ride to our Seoul hotel. Along the way we asked about exchanging some US$s, and he made a detour to a place he uses and that had a good rate. He also gave us valuable dining and shopping information about the neighborhood around our hotel. Could not have been better and more efficient!

Denny personalized our tour exactly as we requested. he also offered other options for some extra time we had. He drove well and was professional and kind to us. He provided quality umbrellas when it started to rain. His recommendation for lunch was good and fit our request. His van was newer and was in good shape. He took into consideration our physical condition with our stops and where he let us off the van. He was informative about his country and talked enough without being a bore. Excellent job.

We highly recommend Kun-yong (Denny). We hired Denny for a customized tour to the countryside, an area that is not typically a tourist location, but a place that had special significance to us. Although he had never been to this area, he had done his research and went out of his way to make sure we found the place we were looking for. He was friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and very respectful of our needs. His vehicle was clean, his English was good, and he went the extra mile to accommodate us.

Kun-yong in many ways was a very good tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the sights and their history. He was also very helpful and tried to make things more convenient for us by running to get the car while we finished walking through Bukchon. The reason we gave him 2 stars was that either he didn't listen or was not very flexible. We kept asking him to slow down but it always felt like he was rushing us. In addition, his driving is very herky jerky. We would not tour with him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As far as I remember, you and your parents agreed with my suggestion that move quickly and visit more attractions in a limited time. During the tour, your father doesn’t seem interested in my explanation at all and he always walked ahead of me and it made me rush more than necessary. He just easily complained about the tour for no particular reason. I feel sorry about that point. Anyhow,I will take your advice and comment in good parts to improve my service quality more positive way. Thank you.

Denny is a superb guide. He adapted to changes in the ship schedule and greatly assisted me in pushing my wife's wheelchair even though the baggage handlers had broken it. He even got my wife a new replacement wheelchair at a flea market and wouldn't take payment for it. He showed us all the major sights of Seoul despite the limited time we had. He went above and beyond all my expectations.

Denny was an absolutely wonderful guide. He was very knowledgable about both Korea and Seoul. We had little time for touring, as we had 2 appointments with adoption officials, through which we had adopted our daughter. He was eager to go out of his way to do anything that would please us. We wanted to buy a refrigerator magnet as a souvenir but no time to find one. After dropping us off, Denny actually went out and bought several of them and brought them back to the ship for us.

Our group of 8 took a private Seoul half day tour. Denny (Kun-yong) was a terrific guide. For many of us, it was our first visit to Seoul so we wanted to see some of the major sights of Seoul city and we were able to do this with the limited time. Denny's English was good, his insight and information on the areas we visited was terrific and he took note of the time allocated so was able to fit everything in. I would recommend and would certainly use Denny again again on my next visit to Seoul.

We have a 2 days tour with Denny (Kun Yong) Yu, to Korean Folk Village and second day to Nami Island. Denny is very considerate in accomodating our need such as Halal food only for lunch and our specific request to have a photo experience in Hanbok. Considering we travel in a big group with variety of age different, my parent and my 2 daughters (one of them still a toddler), Denny maintained a good pace. We ended up taking Denny's offer to drive us to the airport flying back home. Thank you Denny.

Denny is very personable and has a detailed understanding of Korean culture (and the best time of day to visit tourist attractions in Seoul). Denny arrived on time and went above and beyond to accommodate our itinerary. An unexpected highlight was Denny's guide through the National Palace Museum - the depth of his knowledge of Korean history was extraordinary and insightful. We travelled as a party of 3 adults and 3 children - we all appreciated Denny and highly recommend him.

Denny was very helpful the entire day. He helped us find good deals for where to rent ski gear, and for the entrance fees also. He brought as well some extra gloves and ski goggles for us to use. He then personally assisted each of us (we were 6 in total) with the basics for learning how to ski, so that most of us were happily going down the slopes by the end of the day. Good guide, great tutor, will get again for another ski trip.
