This was a nice short and informative tour! We (3 in our group, plus 2 others) met up with Sally, our kind and knowledgeable tour guide, right outside the station. We walked us around the market for about 45 minutes, showing us different stalls and experiences. We saw lots of live, freshly killed, and dried fish. We then went to a sushi and fish soup restaurant where we also tried fresh (aka still moving!) octopus. After 2 hours Sally left for our next tour but we stayed a bit longer to eat and talk with the other couple. Thank you for introducing us to a place that we might have not felt comfortable going on our own! P.S. Wear waterproof shoes if possible, or just walk very carefully!

Seeing Seoul with Sujeoung was a wonderful treat. First off, my flight was delayed and Sujeoung graciously adjusted our meeting time to accommodate the delay. The day was perfectly designed according to my request: a tour of Changdukgong Palace and grounds; Hanok village; Ikseon Dong; a traditional tea break; tasting some street food such as egg bread, bungoh, chestnuts; a tour of Gwangjang Market and sampling some of the traditional delicacies; ending the day with a walk along Chungyechun Stream and Myeong-dong. This tour made me want to come back to Seoul and see more of the city and the rest of South Korea. Thank you, Sujeoung!

Very spooky tour. Shaun was a very charismatic and knowledgeable guide, with a deep understanding of Korean folklore. Highly recommend taking this tour, as there is only one other tour like it in all of South Korea.

Soojin was a great tour person and very knowledgeable about the history of Korea.

Thank you, they were very responsive and kind. It was a lot of fun.
