Hello, my name is Yeonghoon Choi and lived in Busan for more than 30 years.
Busan has been a historically and culturally important city as a gate to and from other country.
However, I witnessed a lot of people those who only see the sight (which is also great) and could not find a true gem in Busan.
I will conduct tour services to you in two ways, back in 15th century and modern days in Busan which even locals do not aware of.
Through this trip, I hope you to have a better understanding and more into my hometown , Busan.
See you in the trip!

We had an experience well spoken English tour guide. Steve was very patience with 6 ladies. He took great care of us and shared a lot of Busan culture. After we went back to our accommodation, we were still sharing our individual thoughts how Steve was.

Hi. This is my first time using "Experience" airBnB. Im really surprised by the pricing to be honest. It's cheap for 8 hours tour, but still quite expensive for my Indonesian pocket hahahhah, but I digress. Most of the destinations are free tour places, but kinda hard to visit by your own. That's where Younghoon and Steve come in to save the day. Steve is very polite and talkative and super caring. I think the most thing that stand out, is how convenient it is, and quite relaxing to be honest.... Steve will cater you to every destination on time and give his best to accommodate your needs. I left the trip feeling quite relaxed. Now for the "not so good" parts, it could to be more informative for my likings, it requires a bit of physical strength or at least a bit cardio hahhahaa. But yeah, overall i really enjoyed it.

Took the atx from Seoul for a one day cultural tour to Busan. From the day we made the booking, our guide Steve went the extra mile and helped us book our train tickets and seat reservations for the train to Busan. He was very spontaneous and even took us to locations that weren't included in the itenerary. The tour could have ended on a sad note because my wife left her wallet on one of the locations. But Steve called them up and accompanied us back to the location, taking the tiring climb (to Busan Tower) once again so that we can retrieve the wallet all while maintaining his courteous and joyful demeanor. Would definitely recommend this tour to everybody.
