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.

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!

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!
