June 2011 North Korea Summer Tour Review
Sarah and I had an amazing time in North Korea.
First, everything on your end was wonderful, the description of the trip was exactly as we experienced. We also very much appreciate your attention to details and prompt and thorough replies to our emails and questions. We felt that we were prepared for everything from the visa to the tour itself.
Secondly, the guides were perfect; they really made the trip amazing for us. We experienced great hospitality and respect from all of the tour guides. I don't know if you are able to request tour guides for your company's tours, but if you can then absolutely try to get them again. They were totally open to all of our questions, and we felt that we could be respectfully honest with them even if we didn't always agree 100%. After earning trust with the guides we were able to leave the hotel and restaurants alone (in close proximity), and they were very accommodating with photos etc; they deserve accolades for the job they did. I have to imagine it isn't easy giving the same tour so frequently, but they showed true enthusiasm and seemed to generally enjoy meeting and talking with us. We also much enjoyed their arrangement of the Military Circus which was not on the schedule, but was an awesome addition.
The only recommendation I have for you guys is possibly to update your website.
Thank you again for your amazing organization and coordination of this tour to North Korea.
