South Korea Real Food Adventure

Gemma · Traveled November 2023
This foodie tour of South Korea was excellent. Be prepared you will eat a lot. It was so good to try different things that you do not get usually from more western cultures. Alice the tour leader was fantastic and extremely helpful throughout the tour. The Monastery stay was extremely basic as expected but a valuable experience to remember. I wish I could do it all again.

A great trip if you want to get an authentic feel for South Korea. Great for foodies who are willing to push the boundaries. Our tour guide Ryan was extremely gracious and kind allowing us to really enjoy exploring South Korea. Allergy friendly.

South Korea Real Food Adventure

Angela · Traveled November 2023
Fantastic foodie trip! We saw, travelled and ate a lot on this food tour!! Come with a good appetite! Combined with experiencing Korean culture (old and very new), history and the amazing variety of all food Koean, I felt it is so far one of the best Intrepid trips I have been on. This is in part because we had a fantastic tour guide Ryan who made this trip fun, knowledgable, ensured we saw all the interesting sights on the trip and more. He also made sure we ate well and we loved his choice of restaurants and food stalls. Really enjoyed the walking in the National park to see the autumnal colours, and the temple stay was a great midpoint for our trip - some time to slow down (we pack a lot in to the & day trip!) and reflect on life in a beautiful area. Hotel accommodation was very good, central with easy access to transport. Loved the hanok stay. Temple stay was more comfortable than expected with proper beds and en-suite bathroom. Train journeys were extremely comfortable and fast. Suggest travel light. I had a small carry on suitcase but others had large suitcases which made it a little trickier manoeuvring in the subway especially enduring rush hour. You don’t need much stuff. All in all, a great experience in the delights of South Korea!

The tour provided a wonderful opportunity to see some of the most beautiful parts of Korea, experience its history and culture, whilst meeting a group of like minded and friendly people. Our tour guide Boram made the experience so special, with her extensive knowledge and passion for Korea. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone.
