As mentioned by other reviewers, it's highly recommended ! Thank you to our guide, Jim, told us plenty of stories and informations along the way...
What a fun experience! We benefited from the low-season winter date in that the group was small 3 people plus our guide and therefore received the guide's full attention and explanations. Korean BBQ, toppoki, very-garlicky chicken - Korean street food at it's best, most cooked in front of your eyes, and a tour of a very busy local food market. Do this tour. You won't regret it.
This was an awesome tour! Probably the highlight of our time in Seoul.
Our guide was knowledgable and showed us the best way to prepare and eat all the food.
We started out at an outdoor barbecue place where we sat as a group and cooked our food together over the charcoal grill. It was a great way to get to know the other people in the group. We still think about how good the barbecue was and makes me wish the Korean barbecue restaurants where we live could even come close.
After the barbecue we made our way to a Soup tteokbokki/topokki/Spicy rice cake there's various ways of spelling it restaurant. This was my personal favorite dish of the night. Accompanied with plum soju, this soup was nothing like I've ever had before. Wish we could have eaten more but knew we had to pace ourselves because there were two more restaurants to go.
Thirdly we went to get a Korean classic Chimaek or chicken and beer. Three types of fried chicken regular, chili more sweet than anything, and garlic with a nice cold beer. Delicious.
Lastly we ended the tour at a jeon was like a potato pancake, although I'm not sure if it was potato or rice restaurant at a huge market. Accompanied with farmers wine or Makgeolli and special treat of sashimi beef it was a great way to end the night.
Highly recommend this tour.

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Seoul. Our guide was fantastic, took us to places we could never go on our own. Will book another one of these tours when I am back next year.
4 DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS WILL AQUAINT YOUR TASTE BUDS .WITH KOREA. THIS IS A MUST DO TOUR!
Our tour guide JS was great - funny, knowledge and spoke perfect English. The tour itself was great - basically 4 full meals with drinks! The stops were all at restaurants that I would have had a hard time finding myself which was great - got to see parts of Seoul that weren't packed with tourists. The food was absolutely delicious. I would do this tour again and highly recommend!
enjoyable evening, great food
Our guide was awesome, lots of good food and great times with new people.
If you only had time to do one thing in Seoul, you should do this food tour. Our group had a blast as we enjoyed many different restaurants while walking through interesting and historic back alleys. In terms of the food, we enjoyed traditional barbecue, rice cakes, chicken and beer, and shaved ice. All the food tasted great and were accompanied by plenty of alcohol and games.
Our guide, Logan, was what made the tour great. He explained not only traditional eating and drinking customs, but also provided us with cultural insights along the tour. He went above and beyond to ensure that everyone had a great experience and a safe trip back.
This tour is the best if you wanna try different kind of Korean food and learn about the Korean culture. My tour guide, Logan, is friendly and caring. He explained a lot about the food and drinking culture in Korea. I had an amazing night in this tour.
