Grace was so nice and very informative. She was very interactive with her guests and helped us all to enjoy our cultural experience. I highly recommend this tour just for the novelty of wearing the Hanbok. The photos were great!

This experience was such a lovely surprise! I went together with my husband and our tour guide Mi So who was fantastic. The best parts of this experience were probably trying on the hanbok and playing Yut-Nori. The tour hosts were friendly and welcoming and gave us an experience we will never forget!

Really enjoyed this one. We were in a group with some elderly Japanese women but our host made sure that we were all entertained. After the kimchi making we played a Korean game and then got to wear the traditional hanbok. All in all a very pleasant way to spend a few hours.

My family and I had a great time at this experience. The guides cram a lot of activities into your tour. Both the guide and kimchi making instructors were so nice. Our favorite part had to be trying on the hanbok. They let you select your outfit, from a large number of options, and even try on the wedding and royal outfits. They also help take lots of photos for you, which we really appreciated. I would highly recommend this tour. It is a great way to experience a number of different parts of the Korean culture. Very well worth it!

Just what I had hoped, to be elbow deep in bright red kimchi, while learning the secret ingredients that make kimchi so unique. Then, our guide was very patient with both us, as we dressed up in traditional Korean Hanbok and learned about wedding traditions in Korea.
