Tour description provided by Viator

Calling all foodies! Experience Seoul like a local on this 3-hour guided tour of the Noryangjin Fish Market. With your guide, an English-speaking local and Korean-cuisine connoisseur, discover the vibrant market and food culture of the city as you walk inside the market, chat with vendors with ease, and pick out fresh seafood from the tanks to enjoy for lunch!

The Noryangjin Fish Market is one of the largest wholesale and commercial fish markets in Seoul. On this 3-hour guided market tour, wander around inside the market like a local and visit the various stalls with the help of your English-speaking guide, an expert in Korean cuisine who’ll provide interesting and informative commentary about market culture. Chat with the local vendors to learn about their daily lives both inside and outside the market.

If you are up to the challenge, sample a traditional Korean delicacy –sannakji, live octopus that is lightly seasoned with sesame and sesame oil. Or, if you’d rather, simply pick out any fresh fish from the seafood tanks to enjoy for lunch. Then, sit back and relax as it is prepared by expert cooks at one of the market’s restaurants.

Your seafood lunch will consist of grilled fish and sashimi (thinly sliced raw fish), served with a side of maeuntang (spicy fish soup). Wash everything down with Korean beer or rice wine for a refreshing end to your epicurean adventure!
