What people are saying about Gyeonggi Province

Junghee's class was amazing! She is fluent in english and very fun! She made me feel like I had known her for a long time :) I have currently lived in Seoul for 2 years, and was looking for an english friendly cooking class. The tour of the market included some great information and was such a fun time chatting with Junghee while we shopped and looked around. The cooking class made complex dishes seem so easy! Junghee has thought out every possible part of the class wonderfully. She is a great teacher and storyteller. The food itself was delicious and I feel confident I can cook any of it at home! She also takes pictures and videos for you while you cook. I highly recommend taking this course if you are looking to learn some things about korean culture, including food and language and more! Even as someone who lives in Korea, I found this class to be an amazing experience~ :)

Shawn was the most engaging guide. Since I was the only person who signed up, I got a private extended tour. He had interesting stories about Korean folklore ghosts mixed in with contemporary ghosts. The tour was not physically demanding. I learned a lot from Shawn and the places he brought me were very picturesque and interesting.

Wonderful experience. Great, knowledgeable guides. Efficient schedule. Would recommend full day if available.

It was a great tour and covered everything listed. Very knowledgeable and helpful tour guide.

The 2 your guides were well organized and history lessons about DMZ was very good
