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 ).

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. He speaks English very well and his personality is quite charming. We just loved our day in Busan and highly recommend Frank. (Plus, he's great at taking group photos.)

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.

Date: May 20/19

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: #71427, More than 10 people "BUS" trip for Pam Evans, Pusan, South Korea    
Date: May 1/18

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pam Evans Thank you for a good review after tour. i would be recommend you other itinerary if you have a time to visit here again. and have a good day thank you and best regards frank, yi

Alice Adinata


Tour: #71427, 15 seats Min bus Excursion in Busan tour for Alice Adinata, Pusan, South Korea    
Date: Dec 31/16

Overall just an "OK" guide. We couldn't go to Busan Tower and bought Korean souvenirs (which they were in our itinerary) as some roads were closed prior to New Year's eve event. I think as a guide, he should be prepared for this information. The lunch was great but he pre ordered everything for us which was a pity as we wanted to try many different things. This was our first trip to Busan and unfortunately it was not really impressive.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alice Adinata i'm so sorry about many traffic jams before new year eve day in Busan. i prepared everyting before coming in Busan but unfortunately, i can not do that about closed road. Normally, private tour in Busan need 3-4 days trip. we had a day tour only 7 hours in Busan. please understand that new year holiday season. thank you and best regards frank yi

Tour: #71427, 12 people "BUS" Excursion in Busan for John Monaghan, Pusan, South Korea    
Date: Nov 14/16

Visited Busan on 14/11/16 on Diamond Princess. Frank picked us up (2 Brits, 2 Americans, 2 Canadians and 6 Aussies) and took us on our pre-arranged tour. We visited the UN Cemetery, Haedong Yonggung Temple, Went up the Busan Tower, had time for a bit of shopping downtown and finished up with a trip to the Jagalchi Fish market before being dropped back off at the ship for pre dinner drinks. Superb tour had to substitute Haedong for Beomosa on the day due to traffic and time constaints. Frank did a good job

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you for your review after tour. it was a short day tour but it was an enjoyable Busan trip for everyone. thank you for your appreciation. frank y

Tour: #71427, 15 people "BUS" Excursion in Busan for Hisham Raheem, Pusan, South Korea    
Date: Sep 10/16

Frank was excellent !!! Gave a good balance between giving us insights about the places we visited and space for us to go about and explore on our own. Was also very practical and flexible to make our trip enjoyable and well-paced. We were travelling with 4 kids with their prams and the bus he arranged was very clean and spacious. The driver was very friendly and professional. We had private guided tours in Pusan, Nagasaki and Shanghai and all the 10 adults in my family agreed Frank was the best!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hisham Raheem Thank you for review after tour. i will recommend you other itinerary if you have a chance to visit again as Busan + Seoul + Jeju with etc. other tour places that i will be provide to your tour plan with guiding anywhere in Korea. thank you for good review and best regards frank, yi

Date: Oct 2/15

If it is locality you are looking for in Busan, then Frank is no doubt THE tour guide to go for. He is no fuss, efficient and humorous, and looks after his guests of different ages and needs perfectly. As a huge group of 19 (with a penchee for seafood), we were treated to the local anchovy market as well as Crab market, where the specailist Crab Feast was not only delicious but also very reasonable. In addition to the localities, we were also taken to all the major sites, and with good time to explore.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ting Tina Chen Thank you for review and i hope to see you again anytime if you have a plan to visiting in the Korea. Maybe, i will be recommend more interesting places as you wish. thank you and best regards frank, yi
