Each place we travel to we always do a food tour. This is without doubt the best we have done. Veronica was an amazing guide , very helpful and informative. We went first to a very traditional Michelin starred restaurant. There was a multitude of truly amazing dishes , many I had never heard of . We then explored a Hanoch village and despite truly torrential rain had an excellent time . We finished in a wonderful tea therapy house . Such a perfect way to see the area . A truly memorable tour . Thanks to Veronica!
Excellent and Informative Tour

Tour experience guided by Veronica was most informative and an amazing part of our trip in South Korea. The tour started with lunch at a Michelin rated restaurant called Yongsusan, serving traditional Korean cuisine. The dishes were light and absolutely divine.

After lunch we headed to Bukchon Hanok village. Veronica introduced us to a sweet Korean pancake with syrup embedded in the pancake. We walked around the village where she also explained to us important landmarks in the village.

We then strolled over to a tea shop called Tea Therapy cafe. A menu was provide to us and recommended the type of tea suited for the individual. I ended purchasing three boxes of the Detox tea. Great purchase!

The tour ended at a Buddhist eatery and museum like place. The site explained the type of meals consumed by the monks and the preparation of fermented food for a long winter and year ahead.

I highly recommend this tour to solo travelers and families as well. Veronica exudes professionalism and extremely patient with me and my son. She is most informative about Korean history and culinary arts, past and modern day.
Not to miss

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
An amazing experience
