Excellent tour
, Nov 2021
Yeji was our tour guide for this trip and she was absolutely lovely. She took the time to tell us about each restaurant we went to, explain what the food was and the history. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone that might be nervous about eating out in South Korea.
Great Evening Food Tour in Seoul
, Feb 2020
The back street, out-of-the-way eating establishments were very interesting and the food was great. If you did not like the traditional Korean alcoholic drinks, you were given more contemporary fare. Our guide, Yeji, was outstanding.
Fun and delicious food experience!!

This tour was so much fun and our tour guide Eunbi was exceptional. The food was delicious and Eunbi did a great job at explaining each food experience including some cultural traditions. Don’t miss this experience, it will make your visit to Seoul a memorable one!!!
A great night out and a wonderful introduction to Korean Cuisine
, Jul 2019
This tour was terrific. Stephen, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited on the tour and able to provide a lot of insight and information on the foods we were eating, how they are consumed and their origins. Definitely a great introduction to Korean cuisine and you end up visiting restaurants it's unlikely you'd feel confident enough to try by yourself, as a first time visitor. This tour definitely encouraged me to be a lot more bold in trying new foods during the rest of my stay in Seoul and the other diners on the tour made for great company and a really neat night out. Would definitely recommend.
Great night and awesome tour leader
, Jul 2019
I took the tour toward the end of my trip in Korea. So I was glad that we did try several food other than Korean BBQ which I had before. Haley was awesome. Not only she is very helpful from the start by giving directions to the meeting place, she explains the food, the history and other traditions along the way. We also had a great mix group from all over. It was a great experience and highly recommended. We did definitely visited to where the locals go (very authentic).

We ate delicious Korean Barbeque, toppoki and Korean fried chicken in places only locals would know. We enjoyed local beers and sojou with our wonderful guide Eunbi.
