THIS TOUR IS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER TOURS! I focus on food and drinks. The main focus is drinking at each spot while we eat some outstanding food. I provide 5 hour tours. I will be taking you around the neighborhood that has the best food in Seoul, HANDS DOWN! There are tiny alleys that even Koreans don't know about! I have taken many people around here including my native Korean friends and they will agree that it is the best of the best! I promise you won't be disappointed in this tour. Just make sure to bring a huge appetite since we will be trying a ton of dishes!

I do not take you to places that you will be able to find on google or are commercialized. I take you to places you would typically not be able to go to on your own.

What's Included

I supply 3 drinks for the group to share throughout the tour.

What's Not Included

The food is not included in the price of the tour. Trust me! The food is super cheap and this tour is still cheaper than other tours that have the food included!

Great Food Experience!
Rebecca T, 02-01-2023
Was in Seoul on a solo trip for a few days and decided to go on a food tour to get to know the city. Really great experience with a great group of people! Mike was super knowledgeable and shared his passion for good food. All the spots we went to were 10/10 - I felt they represented the local experience and food culture really well. I was super full by the end of it. I would 100% do the same tour again!
Such a great experience!!

Mike was an awesome tour guide! He is very personable and knowledgeable about the history of the different stalls around the market. He took us to places that I would never thought of going to which ended up such an amazing experience. He educated us with a bit of Korean culture, the food and the delicious Korean rice wine. This tour is a must if your visiting Seoul.
nice guide and food.

Mike is really nice and provides the background/history of the markets/stalls. It is my first time in the ROK and I really wanted to try the food markets- this tour is a great way to experience the markets and go to the best places. Was a lot of fun!
Do Yourself A Favor --- TAKE THIS TOUR!

By FAR one of the best tours I have had in many a year. Mike is funny, knowledgeable, energetic and downright a good guy. The squirming squid was soooo much fun to eat, the lessons on the range of Soju available and the tastings provided were outstanding. And the duration of the tour was perfect. I never once felt rushed, pressured into buying something or felt like I was taken somewhere because he got a kickback. Instead I often felt like I was getting special treatment because Mike was a "local" who frequented their establishments.

I think the tour attracts some fun people and I mad a couple of friends on that tour who I still talk almost a year later. Mike also went out of his way to try and help me find some good food when I texted him while I was down in Jeju which just solidified my opinion of what a solid guy he is just willing to help people understand, love and enjoy not only Korean cuisine but the culture and the everyday life.
