On this private culinary tour, discover the flavors of South Korea during market tours, a cooking class, street food touring, cultural touring and more.

During flexible private touring in Seoul, visit highlights such as the bustling Noryangjin Fish Market, one of the largest seafood markets in Korea. Also visit cultural highlights such as the Changdeokgung Palace complex—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—and its "secret garden." Stop for a cup of tea in a traditional teahouse in the Insadong neighborhood, and browse the best local shops for Korean antiques, textiles, ceramics, herbal medicine, clothing, and more. One day, enjoy an exquisite, multicourse meal of traditional Buddhist cuisine. One evening, enjoy a private street food tour in Seoul. With an insider local guide, explore Gwangjang Market to sample Korean street food dishes such as tteokbokki (chewy rice cakes in a sweet and spicy sauce), bindaetteok (fried mung bean pancakes) and irresistible hotteok (pancakes stuffed with brown sugar), and perhaps try makgeolli (rice wine). Another morning, learn to make kimchi or another local specialty during a private cooking class.

One day, take an excursion to Jeonju, one of Korea's best-known culinary destinations and the home of bibimbap, the iconic one-bowl meal. With your private guide, explore Jeonju's Hanok Village, a vast neighborhood of beautiful traditional Korean houses. Dine on bibimbap, bean sprout soup, mandu (dumplings) and other culinary specialties of Jeonju, and perhaps sample the local makgeolli. Also browse for locally made traditional hanji paper and ceramics, and see landmarks such as Jeondong Catholic Church and Gyeonggijeon Shrine.

During additional private touring in Seoul, discover the treasures of the city's best museums, such as the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Korea Furniture Museum or National Museum of Korea. Other options include visiting the Zaha Hadid-designed Dongdaemun History and Culture Park, touring Gyeongbokgung Palace and additional royal palaces, visiting the National Folk Museum of Korea, learning about Confucian traditions at Jongmyo Shrine, walking through trendy neighborhoods such as Myeongdong to see the latest fashions and pop culture, visiting high-end fashion boutiques and restaurants in Gangnam, going to the top of N Tower, hiking in the mountains surrounding Seoul, stopping by top art galleries and visiting the vibrant Hongdae university district.
