Great History and Great Food!

Full disclosure, I was on the Seoullo 7017: Namdaemun & Myeongdong Tasting Tour but I feel confident that any of Veronica’s tours would be worth while. When traveling as a foreigner it’s easy to feel like a commodity and removed from the culture. Having Veronica as a guide makes you feel immersed. We walked through Namdaemun market and visited stalled and restaurants I never would have on my own. She even made the popular Myeongdong area feel special by sharing a intimate histories of the area. While I love food and I love the experience of different cultures I can honestly say that my favorite part of this tour was being lead by a guide who seriously loves her city. Highly recommend.
Amazing food off the beaten path!

When I did this tour I already lived in Korea for a while, so I was quite accustomed with Korean food already. However the food I tasted here was something else! Something special! We started off with budaejjigae, and it was hands down the most delicious budaejjigae I ever tasted.

All the other visits were top notch as well. The jeon-restaurant, the raw fish-place. But what really stood out was that small restaurant hidden near the 'slums' which served amazing flavorful food. That was my favorite place and I will definitely visit that restaurant again.

Furthermore, the tour was very nice, Veronica is very knowledgeable, the food was amazing, and the fresh coffee was legit too. I highly recommend this tour!
True Korean food in a local 'non-touristic' area of Seoul!

Wonderful tour in a more hidden 'non-touristic' area of Seoul. During the tour we visited many restaurants which were each completely different. It's a great way to try different local dishes at local restaurant. Perfect way to explore true Korean food!
한국을 방문한 벨기에 친구와 함께 참가헀는데
남경 김, 07-09-2018
친구는 두 번째 방문이라 광화문, 종로, 광장시장 등 이미 널리 알려진 관광지 말고 조금 색다른 곳을 가길 원했습니다. 집이 서울이 아니라 저도 서울을 잘 몰라 어디를 갈까 고민하던 중 다른 투어에서는 찾아볼 수 없던 지역인 '중림동'을 발견하였습니다. 시청과 서울역, 충정로라는 잘 가던 동네 그 중간 어디쯤이라는 것을 보고 환호했습니다. 숨겨진 동네를 발견하다니! 바로 이거야.
설명해주시는 가이드 님은 방문하고자 하는 지역의 이름이나 음식의 유래, 식재료의 정보 및 음식점 사장님의 인생 스토리 등 다양한 이야기를 안정감있고 재밌게 설명해주셨습니다. 호텔에도 근무하셨고 대학교에 강의도 하시고 서울시 주최 공모전에서 상도 받으셨다는 얘기를 들으며 경험이 많으신 분 같았습니다. 설명은 듣는 사람으로 하여금 편안한 느낌이 들었고 또 온화한 분인 것 같았습니다. Tasting 하기 전에 걸으면서 듣는 설명은 지금 가고 있는 식당에 대한 기대감을 높여주었고 초이스한 식당들의 맛도 모두 뛰어났습니다. 절대 혼자서는 블로그나 구글을 통해 찾을 수 없지만 숨겨진 보석같은 맛집을 알 수 있어 개인적으로 정말 행복했습니다. 같이 온 벨기에 친구도 대만족 했답니다!
서울로 7017이라는 장소에 대해 더 알 수 있어서 좋았고, 도보투어라 조금 피곤할 수도 있었지만 중간중간 쉬어가며 배려해주셔서 피곤하지 않게 잘 들을 수 있었던 것 같아요. 다음에 다른 친구가 오면 꼭 다시 데려가고 싶은 투어입니다. 정말 대강추!!!!
