Wonderful evening adventure
We had a wonderful experience with our guide, Jai. We explored little alley ways we would never have been brave enough to go down on our own and started our evening in a traditional ‘after work’ hangout. Jai took us to more hidden gems and gave us lots of insight into Korean culture as we walked through the instagram worthy streets of Insadong. We also picked up recommendations for places to try in future and I hope to do one of her cooking classes next time we come to Seoul.

Why were Korean chop sticks made of silver?
After reading the La Jolla Mum blog I booked this experience expecting great food and an entertaining evening. Young and Da made the evening much more than that. We went to quirky venues to enjoy authentic Korean food and drinks. We certainly wouldn’t have found these venues on our own. We were part of a big group - but this certainly didn’t impact on our enjoyment. Having a son in Australia of approximately Young’s age, we exchanged ideas on life for his generation in Korea now and in Australia - something that doesn’t usually come with an evening of eating and drinking with new acquaintances. Da was a special treat too - with such a good sense of humour. Of course I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys food. The interesting and entertaining guides were such a bonus. As for my introductory heading...well you will have to take this food tour to find out!

Enjoyable couple's night out with guide
Dec 2019
My wife and I had a great time with our host Lynn. She was a gracious, friendly, intelligent, and warm host. She provided us a so many great insights into Korean culture and cuisine.

We only had a limited time in Seoul, so this was a great opportunity for us to eat some great food, and be exposed to the Korean food scene.

Had sooo much good food and drink - it was delicious!

Thank you O'ngo and Lynn!

Fun Tour
Dec 2019
First things first, K (Kim) is a great and knowledgeable guide. He's really fun and funny.

As for the tour, walking around the back alley's of Insadong to local eateries that I would have never looked for is really fun. More so with the small group of people, who by the end of the 3 hours of eating, drinking and walking around, they're more like your friends than just strangers that you met on a tour. The food is pretty "straight forward" Korean food, so nothing that will intimidate or "gross-out" the average person; thus, if you're looking for "challenging" Korean food, like live octopus, this is not that sort of tour. That said, it's just about the food, it's about the company, and this tour is a lot of fun.

A five star tour with Helen
Dec 2019
The guide, Helen showed her love for food and cooking which added to the great experience as she could talk about the ingredients in each dish and their place in Korean cooking while we tried several of the local specialties. The places they had picked were smaller local places with great atmosphere down side streets. This was a great option to try several local foods in places I would not have found on my own.

Amazing experience! So much fun!
Nov 2019
We had the best time with Lynn and our small group for the food tour. She was extremely knowledgeable about the food as well as the drinks we were sampling. Lynn went over Korean culture and the connections to the food we were eating. We learned so much during this tour not to mention the amazing food we sampled. We hope to be able to tour again!

Wonderful food tour for someone traveling solo
Dec 2019 • Solo
I really enjoyed this food tour as it was a great way to experience Korean food without the anxiety of going into a restaurant all by myself. I would've been fine if this group was full, as long as I got to try new food and drinks, but since my group was just one other couple and the tour guide, it was nice and easy to have good conversation. Lynn was very helpful and knowledgeable with the food, drink, and history and was wonderful to talk with. I would definitely recommend this food tour to my friends and colleagues!

Great tour of the small side street restaurants
Nov 2019
The tour was very professionally run and even though there was problems with getting enough people for the Friday tour, the tour company was good at communicating and rescheduling to next Monday. The places we went to for food all had a good almost retro like atmosphere. The guide who lead the group was very kind and she told the group many interesting stories about the food, the drink, and her experiences. I think she did a great job of taking a group of strangers and having them bond over food and drinks. Thank you Ongo for this experience!

Amazing Tour Guide

My wife and I were only in Korea for the weekend and we decided to do a food to tour. Lynn was our tour and she was AWESOME. She explained each dish to and shared some Korean History with us. The food and drinks were GREAT and Lynn made sure we had a excellent time.
