The cooking class was a wonderful experience - we went to the market to pick up food and learn about some Korean ingredients, then Junghee welcomed us at her house to cook and talk together. As a solo traveller, it was so nice to share a meal with other people and it was also really fun thanks to Junghee's incredible positive energy. Thank you for everything, I can't wait to reproduce the meal we cooked back home! 감사합니다!

We had so much fun with Junghee and her cooking class. We recommend it a 100%, because you can learn so much about the Korean food and culture. Junghee prepared everything in an amazing way (together with us mostly) and her kindness and the way she shared a lot from her life in Korea were very appreciated. Thank you so much!

nice experience, I learned cooking some Korean dishes in a very friendly & funny atmosphere. The only negative point is the meeting point, it was very far away from our hotel. I would prefer that the meeting address would be mentioned on the offer for travelers before making their booking confirmation.

Wasn't easy to find, though. After a bit of asking I found the stand. The lady was very nice and would have helped me with problems. With my Pixel 6, all I had to do was swap cards and start over. Great value for money!

Guide was well informed on sites, offered to take photos and provided contact details if we had any additional questions. Driver dropped off and picked up at locations to keep us out of the rain. Great tour!
