What you'll do

Korean culture is internationally known for K-pop, K-drama and K-beauty. During this experience, I will introduce you to K-cuisine—which we locally call Hansik. We'll start off with a delicious, traditional Korean doughnut and then we'll walk around a famous market and learn about the amazing history of this popular place. Afterwards, I’ll take you to some of my favorite spots where we’ll dive into local Korean foods and drinks. And, of course, there will be a couple of adventurous food selections as well. When it comes to drinking and having a good time, all Koreans know at least a handful of drinking games and I’ll be there to teach you some. Come alone or with a friend—either way, I'll show you a great night out and an unforgettable Korean experience. All foods and drinks are included so come starving and leave absolutely satisfied.

Where you'll be

Gwangjang Market is full of history. As the home to more than 5,000 store vendors, it can be a little overwhelming for first-time visitors. Stroll around with me and you’ll get to meet the Korean ajummas who serve up the best of Korean cuisine. You may even pick up a few Korean phrases along the way.

Jay was incredible! Do not hesitate to do his tour!!! We came out of this with a new friend~ his personality is one that makes you feel like you've known him all your life. He is so sweet, and knows ALL the things. As we walked around, everyone was so happy to see him - and I think that speaks volumes of his character. The food was incredible, and I know that is why we booked, but the entire experience was absolutely magical. I am so glad we did it, and so thankful to have met Jay! Word of advice - when it says come hungry, COME HUNGRY!!!

As someone who likes to travel on a whim and experience different cultures this experience was perfect. I was able to easily schedule the experience for the evening I arrived in Seoul. The experience was as advertised! Lots of different types of food and Jay is extremely knowledgeable and engaging. I would recommend to any one of my friends and would not hesitate to do the tour again!
