Nick Etc at Romantic Pocha

So 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: Karaoke – if you’re tipsy enough and want to try it , of course!

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. 


A 40$ USD tour deposit per person confirms your date and also serves as a guide gratuity.

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.).

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.

Visit the Reserve Page here to send a message, check availability and submit your 40$ deposit via PayPal. Then you pay by cash or card for all food and drinks as we go.

If you prefer to pay in full, the price is based on standard past estimates of other meet ups. These prices also include a hefty 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! The in full prepay price on TripAdvisor and Trazy are a guesstimate based on past guests’ average visits and food consumed – that’s why they have to be higher as well. One size fits all isn’t too easy for a custom tour 🙂 .

These prices include every drop of alcohol and every kind of food imaginable. You will leave full and hopefully a little drunk!
