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 food tour was fantastic. Such great food and a really wonderful, engaging, informative, friendly guide. Discovered a lot of gems and learned a bunch about Korean food and culture. A great way to spend an evening in Seoul. Highly recommend.

This tour was a bit lackluster. Our guide marched very briskly to each restaurant without even checking to see if the whole group was keeping up. At each restaurant, the guide would say a few sentences about the food we were eating and then disappear to play on her phone while we ate. There was very little explanation given about each kind of food we ate at each different restaurant. The last stop was a tea house were we had a tea that they asked us to share with one person. I do not think the tour was worth its cost, aside from being led to each restaurant and not having to search for them by myself.

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!!
