No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

Even if you have no idea on korean food or cooking in general, you will have no problem learning to cook some of the most popular korean dishes with the instructors! The Instructor Jihee was so kind and explained it so well.

Jihee met me at the subway stop and took me on a tour of the medicine and food markets, pointing out Korean staple foods, explaining how they're used, how they're made, and why they're important. We went on to the OME kitchen where all the ingredients were ready, and we got to slicing, dicing, and sizzling up some awesome food, including kimchi stew, Korean pancakes, japchae, and bulgogi. Jihee was a positive and encouraging teacher and lots of fun to learn from, and thanks to her even a kitchen novice like me was able to turn out a solid meal. Great time, highly recommended.

OME was a wonderful experience. It was great being a part of the prep with Jihee and cooking dishes I love. I would encourage everyone to take part in this at least once. We broke bread and ate the foods prepared and I couldn’t have asked for a better end to my day.

My friends and I took the street food cooking class here and had such a great time. Jihee was so nice and she taught us a lot about Korea and its foods. We made several different dishes including Gimbap, Bulgogi, and Tteokbokki, and enjoyed them later together with Jihee. The food was delicious and we are very happy with the whole experience :) We had such a great afternoon! Definitely recommend booking a cooking class with OME Cooking Lab and I would 100% book again.

Fabulous time at OME Cooking Lab - Highly recommended! The itinerary started with a walking tour to this HUGE local markets with teacher Kim. It was right after the lab was closed to prevent the spread of COVID. I can see how popular teacher Kim was with the local store operators as we were greeted warmly by the store operators. Had the pleasure to take pictures of the vibrant local produce as the store owners were well acquainted with teacher Kim and didn’t mind the photo takings. Arrived at the awesome Cooking Lab - I learnt later that it was personally renovated and designed with lots of love and passion by teacher Kim herself. Felt so homely and warmth at the cooking studio with the teacher’s personal touch. Everything was well prepared, cleanliness and hygiene were prioritized - feel perfectly safe given the current epidemic situation. Teacher Kim was very friendly and shared many interesting stories which added flavors to the whole cooking experience. Besides preparing the meals, she also shared and explained the importance of the colors and other little details in preparing a Korean meal. It was a fun and carefree cooking session as I fully enjoyed the entire experience. At the end of the session, we had our meals together (with what we cooked) - hmm.. I think my cooking tasted better 🤣 Just kidding. Teacher Kim also gave me a nice, colorful cook book containing the dishes we prepared earlier and more. She also gave me a postcard of Korean local dish. It was a beautiful day for me. Will definitely go back again when I have a chance. Thank you Teacher Kim! 🥰
