Loved this tour the second it started with the cooking demo. Our tour guide Janice was knowledgable and very sociable. We definitely saw a side of Seoul that we never would have otherwise!

Our tour guide Jain made the walking tour so funny and insightful. Walking distance was not too far which was good but there was definitely a lot of foods we tried on our way, so be sure to have your appetite ready! Loved the tour. Would definitely recommend for anyone who has the time to go!

Excellent tour and wonderful food. Our guide San was personable and insightful. Loved the tour of back alley food places and the numerous tastings. Well worth it.

This tour exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Jain was excellent and her English was really good. It was great to go down into a market area and have the food explained to us. Also the amount that we got to eat along the way made the tour well worth while and good value. Tip for others taking this tour. Don't eat beforehand.

Jain took us on an exciting walking food tour in the Insadong District of Seoul. I highly recommend this tour--it really helped us with our food knowledge, choices and comfort levels throughout the rest of our trip. We had a wonderful day too. Jain's English was perfect, she was extremely informative, accommodating, and funny. We started at the O'ngo office with a cooking demonstration of the Korean pancake, then proceeded on foot with an introduction of the Korean markets explaining a lot about the culture and varieties of fresh foods in Korea. We tried a variety of foods throughout the district, my favorite being the 'mandu' dumplings. We loved strolling the streets in general and seeing a bit of Seoul as we went. The traditional Korean BBQ lunch at the end was as informative as it was delicious. We convinced Jain to stop at a Turkish ice-cream vendor and thoroughly enjoyed that final entertaining street treat. We didn't want the tour to end! Communication with O'ngo was excellent before and after the tour. Jain sent us copies of the pictures she'd taken. A nice touch.

This was a wonderful tour. Learnt how to make pajeon Korean pancake, tried lots of different food and drink - all delicious. We ended the tour with a Korean BBQ and learnt what to mix with what. Our guide was very friendly, informative and obliging. I would highly recommend this tour.

Very informative and friendly guide. Food that we would not have tried on our own and places we would have been hard put to find, even on a map!

It was a great tour, too bad we didn't get to join everyone for the BBQ lunch.
Nonetheless, a definite try!!

Recommend this lighthearted warm and innovative tour to anyone visiting SK who is unsure of the cuisine and culinary culture. Visiting a market area that is hidden away only available to those familiar with the area, this tour is a must-do for all lovers of food. ENJOY!...
