Nick Etc at Romantic PochaSo what is a Real Seoul Tour? Well, for one, it’s fun. Like meeting an old friend you haven’t seen in years. Two, just have a look below at a sample itinerary.

8 PM-ish: Meet in a convenient neighborhood based on your day’s schedule. Typically, most guests save their Gangnam exploration for this day and meet at Sinnonhyeon Station.

Sinnonhyeon Exit 3

Group size is max 4-6. This keeps a more casual feeling…and also allows me to change my plans and go anywhere and everywhere as you want, without having to worry about large group reservations.

Barbecue? Meat? Fish? Super spicy? Whatever you want, we can eat it.  While most have had Korean BBQ before, everyone agrees that here it’s totally different.

10 PM: Round Two. Head to a Korean “bar,” which is more like a restaurant with more unique dishes to try (soy sauce marinated raw shrimp, sashimi, fried chicken….)

12 AM: Round Three. Just get a little more tipsy for karaoke courage.

1-2:30 AM: Karaoke, Karaoke, Karaoke!

2:30 AM  – ???? : If you can handle it, we can keep going until the sun comes up! There’s no shortage of places to go.

Disclaimer: Guests assume all liability for any accidents, loss, or injury, including death; before, during, and after our meet up. Please drink responsibly and travel safely. 


The MOST important thing I ask all visitors for is a Trip Advisor review. This is what helps me build by business to become sustainable as a full time, future career.

Visitors do pay for my portion of the bill wherever we go (so total cost varies by what you want to eat, how much, how many places etc.). A30$ USD tour deposit per person confirms your date and also serves as a guide gratuity :-). 

Visit the Reserve Page here to send a message, check availability and submit your 30$ deposit via PayPal. This way you can pay as we go along by cash or card for all food and drinks.

If you prefer to pay in full, the price is based on standard past estimates of other meet ups. These prices also include commission to the booking site and local Korean taxes. Please book with local Korean company Trazy or the big boys at TripAdvisor (Viator).

Those that really like to drink, well obviously, they’ll spend more. Those that want to try every imaginable food under the sun and go to ten places, that can cost more, too. If you pay in full in advance, please bring cash or credit card in case we go wild, eat too much, or stay out too late!

For a standard dinner of fancy BBQ meat, that’s about 25,000W per person. We’re talking high end, sexy meat with excellent service. Cheaper places are available, of course!

For second round chicken or fish or makgeolli place, expect around 15,000W per person.

If you want to do karaoke (and you should), it’s around 10,000W a person.

Again, these prices are just a guesstimate. It’s certainly cheap to go out here based on western standards! These prices include every drop of alcohol and every kind of food imaginable. You will leave full and hopefully a little drunk :-)!
