Date: Sep 14/19

Frank Yi met us at the cruise port as scheduled and served as tour guide for our group of 10. We asked about changes to our itinerary, and he was more than happy to accommodate. His english was well spoken, and provided highlights along the way. He helped take group pictures, directed traffic as we crossed the streets, and when we asked to stop by a Starbucks, he was more than happy to do so. We had a very enjoyable day. I highly recommend Frank if you happen to visit Busan, and need a local tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kelvin Lewis Thank you for best review after tour. please understand that was all day busy and lot of people at the market because of the Korea national holiday in "Chuseok" ( like thanksgiving day USA ). But i had a enjoyed with your group and hope to see you if plan to come here other tour. thank you and best regards frank, yi

Frank is first and foremost knowledgeable. He efficiently led us around to the major sites of Busan and was able to explain everything in a clear, concise way.

Coolest guide! We had a real local day with Frank, and he arranged our tour in a way that we were able to see so much, not be with the cruise bus tour crowds, yet we had time to go the outlet and lotte department store shopping. Frank was very kind and even offered to push my dad on the wheelchair up and down steep roads. Great person to have as a guide and a friend.

We were a group of 10 visiting Busan and Frank did an amazing job. He was enthusiastic, informative and friendly. He had a terrific itinerary but let us know early on that he was flexible if there were specific things we wanted to see. He answered all our questions and was very knowledgeable about the city and country. He kept us all on a good pace to see as much as we could. We thoroughly enjoyed our day even if I refused to hold a live king crab so he could take a picture! Lol

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Micheline Harvey Thank you for best review after tour, i enjoyed with your group and please let me know if you have a plan. maybe i will recommend you all Korea program with tour also possible. thank you and best regards frankyi

Tour: #68538, Shore Excursion in Busan for Christine Mentz, Busan, South Korea    view tour
Date: May 9/19

Failed to turn up 12.30 pick up. Arrived 2 hours late after phone call from Tourist Info. No apology, he thought it was 2.30 start. Driving was poor ran red lights, backed into a wall at Memorial Cemetery, bounced down a high kerb - very disturbing. Showed no knowledge of agreed itinerary visited Memorial Cemetery (not wanted) did not visit brewpubs we had named - even when we googled maps and asked to go. Instead dropped us at run down bars. He forgot booking and just winged it - formal complaint pending

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mentz Christine Unfortunately, bad review after tour. i understood that this main problem is not going to the beer bar ( brew pubs ) as i will explain that because of your group have been more than 10 beers in Korea BBQ restaurant at the time and after also need to go to the Beer Bar again. i'm tour guide and have to responsible safety tour for travellers. i do not wants any trouble of travellers because much drink beers in Korea as follow law. i'm very sorry and apologize because not go to brew pubs

Tour: #79371, Gyeongju tour for Elizabeth Swank, Busan, South Korea    view tour
Date: Apr 28/19

Frank was excellent as a guide & driver. Our time was limited & weekend crowds intense but Frank managed the time well. We were able to experience the most important Gyeongu sights, lunch in an "authentic" Korean barbecue restaurant, visit a Korean pottery store. He seamlessly implemented a shift during the last two hours due crowds & traffic. His choice to substitute the U.N. Memorial Cemetery was a somber but appropriate end to our brief day. Frank Yi is a considerate & worthy guide & gentleman.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth Swank Thank you for best review after tour. please let me know when you coming here again. maybe i will recommend you other itineraries. thank you and best regards frank, yi

Frank was fantastic. Words can't describe what a great person he is. He gave 150%. Frank was considerate and took care of my husband & I on rollators & occupied our son. He was well versed in history & contemporary subjects. He spoke English well. He showed us what would normally take 2 or 3 days to see in both Busan & Gyeongju. He was flexible & waited 4 us to take photos which will last us a lifetime. We highly recommend Frank. He was so fabulous that he could be an ambassador for the country. Thank you

Our cruise had only one stop in South Korea, with less than a day to experience Busan. Frank gave us a wonderful 6 hour tour including sights of the city, some cultural history, a unique lunch experience, and a very moving visit to the UN Korean War Memorial Site. The Temple visit and the Korean BBQ lunch were highlights, and the quick walk through the Fish Market was an amazing grand finale to a great day. Frank was flexible and willing to plan the day around our interests and schedule; much appreciated.

Our tour in Busan was a wonderful visit to a beautiful city. Frank did a great job showing us the seaside and the city side of Busan. One of our favorite things that we did that day was to visit a typical South Korean restaurant. Frank even assisted in cooking our lunch over the barbeque table! I would highly recommend Frand for a tour of Busan!

Our Japan cruise included Busan - we had no idea what to expect but hired Frank based on very good reviews. We were not disappointed - the tour was outstanding and he was one of the best tour guides we've engaged anywhere in the world, with excellent command of English. We arrived thinking we'd fill the day with some sightseeing around the second largest city in South Korea, and left with a real appreciation of the beauty and history of the city. I highly recommend the tour and Frank as your guide.

Frank was a fabulous and flexible guide for our 3 very full days in Gyeongju and Busan. My husband and I are avid photographers and with Frank's patient and creative help we captured sunrises and sunsets in special locations and got great photos of Korean landscapes, people, and culture. He has an insider's knowledge of special places to eat to experience the very best of authentic Korean cuisine. We would never have had Hangover Soup or abalone porridge on our own, and he helped me stay gluten free.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicolle Goldman Thank you for best reviewing after tour. i have a mistaken which is not clear checked part of included gluten of Korea snacks. but, kindly understanding and explained my mistaken. i had an enjoy with your photography trip in Busan and thank you for all your hospitality.

Our cruise group of 20 had a great day with Frank. He found us at the port and led us on a wonderful overview of Busan. The temple (lots of stairs), APEC gardens (easy walking), and the War Memorial Cemetery (thoughtful) were thought provoking and lovely. Lunch (Korean BBQ) and the drive through the city and by the open fish market - fun. Throughout the day - Frank's commentary and humor (Korean Tom Jones on in coach TV) were perfect. He is a great choice for your time in Busan.

I was traveling solo and was rather spontaneous in planing my trip. I discovered the city of Busan and detoured to it in search of cherry blossoms. Frank and I exchanged emails to plan my tour. He also helped me confirm my room reservations and assisted me in a communication issue I had with the landlord. Frank was informative, professional and personable. He drove me to a number of festivals to view cherry blossoms, hike and enjoy Korean culture. Frank was a real asset for a successful trip.
