This tour was a great intro to Seoul and it was fun to meet up with some other travelers as I was flying solo. Tried some food i never would have on my own.

This is a must do tour for anyone new to South Korea. We did it a week in but recommend doing it as soon as possible to your arrival as it helps you to become familiar with Korean food and even the culture. The places we went were local and the food was made on site at each place meaning nothing store bought and house recipes were used. I'm a very picky eater and yet I ate everything on this tour and it was all delicious.
Our guide Brad was a very informative, knowledgeable and friendly host that made the night fun. We really enjoyed the casual vibe and ease of the tour as well as the other tour guests. You won't regret doing this tour.

This is such a nice tour. We have been to 4 local restaurants with expert local guide who is so friendly and knowledgeable and take care each of us. I was travel alone in Seoul, so, it's quite nice to join such kind of tour or I can't enjoy all the feast by myself. Highly recommended!!

Our guide, Dayeun (she went by Da), was very friendly and informative. Our tour group was small, just 5 of us, and we had a wonderful time exploring. All the stops were great, and the food was delicious. If there is ever an advanced tour, more of the small food stands would be awesome. Great tour!

Went to this tour back in 2014 but still remember how great it was despite the pouring rain that day.
