Please see our Group Tours for 2019 below. We will be adding the tours taking place from September to December shortly.
Our group sizes are usually the smallest amongst agencies specialising in offering tours to the DPRK and we believe that this allows travellers to have obtain a more personalised service. Our groups usually have less than 10 people. In the very unlikely case of having 19 or more travellers we divide the group into two; each traveller with their own guides and private vehicle.
Bike Tours in Pyongyang with KTG!
We now offer you the chance to extend any of your trips in the DPRK and enjoy a bike tour through Pyongyang. This is a magnificent way of exploring the streets of Pyongyang and of interacting with locals. You can also join any tour and have a private extension outside of Pyongyang.
Tour Extensions to the North Korean border city of Sinuiju
Our Sinuiju borderland extensions now include a visit to Dongrim. This is available as you leave the DPRK (there is no need to exit the country and re-enter). We offer too tours in the Chinese border of Dandong and around China. Do please contact us for more information.
We strongly recommend travellers to take the train at least once as it allows us not only to see more of the DPRK as we ride through rural areas and second tier cities, but it also gives us the chance meet Koreans who are leaving the country. Interacting, chatting and having drinks with them is always a fascinating experience. There are usually business people, sports teams, workers, soldiers and delegations on the train. Basically we have the chance to meet and chat with Koreans of all walks of life on the train, something much harder to do on the plane.
Please apply by the application deadline at the latest, earlier if possible. Air Koryo currently do not always add extra flights on the same day so the earlier you apply for a tour the better in order to secure you a seat! If you apply after the application deadline we will be able to notify you within one business day if we can proceed with your application or not. Our partners can issue visas within 10 days before a tour departure but it can be hard to make transportation arrangements for late bookings so do please try to apply by the deadline!
