I would recommend those that are coming to Korea for the first time to visit. Our tour guide Taylor spoke good English and was overall a great trip
We spent the day with Steven and had so much fun. By doing this tour we saw many places we would have been unable to go on our own. The food was fantastic. Steven made the tour great he told us lots of things about the food, Korea in general and lots of interesting and funny stories. From the first moments of meeting Steven we were all really comfortable so the day felt like going out with a friend rather than a tour. A very memorable day in Korea for us. Thanks so much Steven.
This is your was our family's favorite part of our Korea trip. We loved the fish market and got to enjoy so much seafood. The tea house was wonderful and a great photo opportunity. The street food was amazing and the dinner was one we will never forget. We loved it all! Our guide was the best.
This is the highlight of our week long Seoul trip. We have learned the detail of the Korean culinary culture in one day. Henry the guide made this tour memorable with explaining the tidbits of Korean cuisine. We love all the locations we have visited that day, such as the Noryangjin seafood market, the Gwangjang market, Insadong, the Sanmotoonge Cafe which sits high with spectacular views of Seoul while enjoying afternoon coffee and a light dessert was unbelievable.Our family really enjoy this tour. Must join tour in Seoul.
