Anna Chang, our guide, was absolutely wonderful! She showed us to places we never would have found on our own. Anna knew these hidden gems and shared them with our group. She took the time to talk to each person in the group and get to know their particular interests. She even took the time to send additional recommendations for things to do and places to see during the rest of our stay in Korea. I highly recommend taking this tour! This tour will be one of the best tours you will take while in Seoul! And if it’s possible to request Anna Chang as your tour guide, you will have the best time! Thank you so much, Anna!!!
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 tour was amazing! I have recommended to a number of people travelling to Seoul. The food was varied and was super tasty. The drinking games were also fun. A great insight into the culture of South Korea.
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!!
Complete waste of money.... I was told to meet at their building at 5:45 and when I got there nobody was there and the building was dark. I waited 10 minutes and was getting ready to leave and she showed up. She basically dumped us off at 5 or so places, never explained anything and walked so fast and so far in front of us there was no way for her to know if we were behind her or not. Skip it.
