Touring with Mike was an exceptional experience. He's so professional, knowledgeable and the shop owners really know and love him. My tour was customized to be vegan and he took me to places which had vegan items, helped me learn some Korean phrases and etiquette and answered my bazillion questions related to his transition to South Korea, medical tourism and South Korean culture. He's a super nice guy and I highly recommend his tours to everyone.
Look, just pack your elastic waistband pants and book the tour. You won't have a better evening eating and drinking yourself under the table anywhere else in Seoul. Mike is crazy knowledgeable about food, and delightfully easy to get along with. Whatever you're in the mood for, Mike has you covered. You absolutely get to have input on what the evening will look like. Eat like a local without the language barrier being an issue. See the markets. Get roaring drunk if you're in the mood.
I've recommended this tour to anyone I know who will be spending time in Seoul.
