What you'll do
With your Local by your side you'll be able to really experience local life and immerse yourself in the vibrant street food culture. Try the dishes that have been perfected in this city like kimbap (seaweed rice rolls), odeng (skewered and stewed fish pancakes), tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) and twikim (Korean tempura).
Get to know Seoul’s food scene and the traditional regional and Korean dishes served daily from food carts. Your host will take take you to the spots where you can learn about the dishes and the local ingredients, and taste the best of what Seoul has to offer, as well as learning about traditions and exchanging recipes.
Spend time getting to know your Local Host, chat about your favourite cuisine and get some insider recommendations of the most authentic locals places to eat and drink on the rest of your trip, at places your host knows you will love.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary based on your literary loves, and to agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although this experience will focus on food, your Local Host will also help you to discover unique shops, inspiring places and independent galleries as well as sharing stories that you won’t find in a guidebook, and make the city unique.

My husband and I don't usually go for tours, but since this experience is totally personalised we thought we would give it a try and we are so glad we did! We travel a lot and it's really hard to find all the local spots to eat at when you're on your own, but being with a Local Host meant we were able to get so much more out of our time. Natalia was polite, friendly and outgoing and really made the experience enjoyable!
