Our tour guide Sun was great. He explained to Korean culture and dining etiquette very well. We have lots of fun playing the Korean drinking games. He took us to four very local restaurants that serves delicious Korean food that were definitely not accessible to foreigners.

This was a great tour, great fun and a grand introduction to Seoul. The guide was excellent and walking the food back streets was something I just would not have known about with only a week in Korea. Highly recommended.

This tour is a must do. The restaurants we visited would have been totally inaccessible to me without a guide or Korean speaker. They were all full of local people, no tourists, no English menus. The food was ready when we arrived so no waiting. Korean food is meant for sharing so the group format was perfect for me, since I was traveling alone. I also enjoyed the walk between restaurants. Our guide JS? spoke perfect English and he was really fun.
