Overview
South Korean cuisine can seem dauntingly diverse, but with a little bold experimentation, your taste buds could soon be tingling. On this Seoul tasting tour, delve into the local food scene and stop at guide-recommended restaurants and a food market or village. Sample local beverages, such as makgeolli and soju, that you may otherwise have missed and enjoy personal attention in a group limited to 12 people.
Highlights
  • Hit the best food spots in Jongno with a guide
  • Stop at local eateries you may otherwise have missed
  • Receive personalized attention in a small group limited to 12
  • Get a more intimate glimpse into the area on a walking tour 
What to Expect
Start your tour in the evening near Anguk Subway Station in central Seoul, then head into the bustling streets of Nagwon-dong. With your guide to lead the way, step off the tourist trail and savor the flavors popular among Seoulites. In your small group—limited to 12 people—visit outlets and street food stalls, and sample tasty treats such as kimchi (fermented cabbage), and Koren barbecue. Along the way, listen as your guide sheds light on the role food plays in South Korean culture. Sample savory pancakes at a shijang (traditional flea market), and taste popular Korean alcoholic beverages including makgeolli and soju. Afterward, head on to the bustling Jongno district to conclude your tour among newfound friends in the neighborhood bars.

My wife and I were only in Korea for the weekend and we decided to do a food to tour. Lynn was our tour and she was AWESOME. She explained each dish to and shared some Korean History with us. The food and drinks were GREAT and Lynn made sure we had a excellent time.

We did this food tour as part of a business trip to Seoul. Our group had 7 people. Our guide, Young, was terrific! He explained everything well and was very friendly. He even took us to karaoke after the official tour was complete because we'd said we wanted to try it in Seoul!
