The best part of the tour...
, Dec 2021
The best part of the tour was the graciousness, knowledge and enthusiasm of Jin Choi, the CEO of the company and our tour guide.
Enjoyable evening in Seoul
, Oct 2019
This tour is ideal for couples, groups etc interested in enjoying the culinary highlights of Korea. Our tour guide, Mr Young, was truly a delight. He skillfully shepherded our group from each restaurant. Each location has one signature dish prepared, and you’re eating pretty much upon sitting down. The quantity of food is sufficient, I didn’t leave each restaurant too full or too hungry.
Fun night out

Fortunately our guide Chris waited for us as we were stuck in traffic. We tried a range of Korean food and drink around Jongno in a convivial atmosphere
Food Tour So Much Fun
, Jul 2019
Helen took us to four restaurants and introduced us to many kinds of Korean foods and some traditional Korean wines. We liked 3 of them but the third restaurant needs to be replaced since several of the tour members thought the food was average and I did not think cats walking all over the dining tables was sanitary. It was easy to find (about 10 minute walk from Isandong.) We really enjoyed the tour and Helen was so much fun. Enjoy!
Book this food tour!

My two teen sons and I highly enjoyed this tour! I booked it our 2nd night in Seoul and so glad I did. We learned so much about Korean food and how its served, which gave us a little more confidence through out the rest of our trip and food journey. I highly recommend this will not be disappointed! Great time!

Thank you for your sincere review! Hope all is well.
Best Food Tour in Seoul!
, May 2019
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 tour was a great intro to Seoul and it was fun to meet up with some other travelers as I was flying solo. Tried some food i never would have on my own.
This is a must do tour for anyone...

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.
Awesome way to nosh, meet new friends...
