About
THIS TOUR IS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER TOURS! I focus on food and drinks. The main focus is drinking at each spot while we eat some outstanding food. I provide 5 hour tours. I will be taking you around the neighborhood that has the best food in Seoul, HANDS DOWN! There are tiny alleys that even Koreans don't know about! I have taken many people around here including my native Korean friends and they will agree that it is the best of the best! I promise you won't be disappointed in this tour. Just make sure to bring a huge appetite since we will be trying a ton of dishes! I do not take you to places that you will be able to find on google or are commercialized. I take you to places you would typically not be able to go to on your own.

A foodies dream!
Nov 2020 • Couples
If you want to experience the rich culture and delicious food of South Korea, this is the tour to book! Mike takes you off the beaten path. He introduces you to restaurants that have been around for generations and have not wavered on their authenticity or sacrificed quality for mass popularity. Mike’s tour felt more like I was hanging out with a close friend who introduced me to his city and culture. The food was absolutely delicious. A must do when you come to Seoul!

Highlight of my Seoul trip
Jan 2020
Can't say enough about how great of time I had during this tour. The experience started even before I arrived in Korea. Mike and I started talking well before my trip (initiated by Mike) so he had a clear idea of what I was looking to do in Korea. That alone is a key point! He wasn't just interested in what I wanted to do on the tour but also offered multiple suggestions about what I could do in the days before and after we met up. I was traveling to Korea solo and he was thoughtful in his suggestions to make sure I got the most out of the experience.

I ended up injuring myself the day before I was supposed to go on this tour, Mike was seriously fantastic about modifying his itinerary so I wouldn't have to walk far while still making sure I had a good time. He was even willing to go to the pharmacy with me in case I needed additional supplies.

This tour felt like a regular night out with friends in the best of ways. Highly recommend.

Don't bother with any other Tour if you are interesting in Experiencing the Real Korean food and Drink.
Feb 2020
Although we visited in the cold month of February, in what seems like a very quiet time, Mike made our evening a very interesting a enjoyable one. He was able to take use to the multitude to locations where we could enjoy a delicious snack (and a refreshing drink or two) whilst sharing a little bit of information about the area or food we were consuming. Excellent all around, Mike is a really cool guy and if you are really interested in getting to know more about Korean food, his tour should be a requirement for your trip!

Mike was great, he took us to amazing places we would never find on our own, you can tell he reviewed so many places and hand picked his favorites and they are un-believable.
We highly recommend enjoying an evening with him , he is also a very cool guy.
Thank you Mike

Best food tour!! 100% recommend
Mike was absolutely outstanding, a really small tour group to some amazing different food places. By the end of the night it feels like you're out with friends.

Tried some things I would have struggled to find on my own. My only regret is I didnt book this tour as soon as I arrived in Seoul, if you do youd have someone to give you local quality recommendations for the duration of your trip through the entirety of Korea.

Dont be dissuaded by the buying of your own food, it means you only have to pay for what you eat and drink and I only spent around $20 to try all of those foods.

IF YOURE COMING TO SEOUL, BOOK THIS TOUR!

Should be required when staying in Seoul
Not too much to say that hasn't already been said in other reviews. This tour is in a class of it's own and a must for your stay in Seoul. You can spend/eat/drink as little or as much as you like. Scheduled this kind on impulse at the last minute and am so glad I did. Totally made my trip.

Sets the standard and completely crushes it! Thanks Mike!

Walking, eating, drinking, laughing

We did Mike’s food tour last night and haven’t had that much fun in a long time! Everyone on the tour (6 total) said it exceeded expectations, which were already high. If you like walking, eating good food, learning tidbits about Korea, and making new friends then this tour is for you. Mike kept it chill, and local, and we ate and drank as much as we chose. We spent about $30-40 on food cos we drank a fair bit. There is no pressure to drink or eat at all, you can choose individually. We ate at so many fun places we could not have found on our own! Mike has also sent me other recommendations near where we are staying, and if there is anything you’re looking for ie the best fried chicken in Seoul, he’s got a rec. So glad we did this tour - it was worth every cent!

A perfect evening!
Jan 2020 • Friends
Mike knows his product & he knows his audience. The pace was great, the food & drink varied & interesting, and an opportunity to see Seoul by night an added bonus. We tried a little of everything & I have much more appreciation for the many subtleties of Korean food. I wish this personable man a great future. He’s a good example of how passion for your subject makes all the difference.

A feast in Seoul with the best host!
Dec 2019
This food tour was the highlight of my solo trip to Seoul. Mike is a fantastic guide and the balance between eating, drinking, walking and talking was just perfect. We were a small group of 4 fellow foodies, and Mike expertly led us through the markets and alleys of Seoul's food and drink scene with a couple of scenic stops along the way. I can't recommend this highly enough. Thanks for such a fun evening!
