Nice food and neighborhood tour
Denise_C, June 2023
Nice tour of the area. Great main meal - multiple courses and final tea stop was very filling. Lots of walking which was fine by us. Would have loved if the guide would have stopped for explanations to entire group vs the few that were by his side. We asked for him to do this but it didn’t happen. Great explanation of the foods at the stops! A few nice stops at food museum, traditional homes, etc. recommend the tour.
Response from Host, June 2023
I'm glad you had a good time. I'll ask him to study how to be considerate of many people on group tours. Thank you so much for sharing your experience in Korea.
Experience of real Korean food
Fiona_P, Apr 2023
A very different food tour and thoroughly enjoyable. Veronica shared some interesting into Korean, culture, food, history and eating etiquette. Lunch was an incredible array of dishes in a small restaurant serving traditional Korean food. The tea stop was again interesting in a lovely tea house. Recommend this tour to gain an insight into real Korean food.

History, culture and delicious food!
Wynona_L, Mar 2023
I loved this tour! It was a mix of history, culture and delicious nourishing food. Veronica was absolutely delightful, easy to understand and so experienced. The lunch was amazing and so unique, not something I would have found on my own or felt comfortable going on my own as it is a hidden gem. The food was healthy and I loved it all, especially the local mountain herbs! The pace was relaxed but we got to see a lot. The little stop at the tea shop was so cute and the tea delicious. Veronica, you made the tour amazing and I loved hearing about your past work too! Lots of experience in the hospitality industry. Thank you!

Not to miss
Victoria_T, Sept 2019
We were pleasantly surprised that our sit down lunch was in a Michelin restaurant. Good food and great location. After lunch we walked to get a street food dessert which was freshly made and delicious! Veronica, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She showed us the bukchon neighborhood which was interesting. Catch this food tour when I’m Seoul
