If you are not sure about joining a group tour or having a private trip or if you would like a bit of both combining going with a group and then having a private extension, then this is the way to go. Extensions can be arranged before a group departure too.
When taking a private tour extension your itinerary can be customised, so it is possible for example for you to stay an extra few days in Pyongyang to see places not listed in your group tour and / or head to another region or city. Below are some tour extension itinerary ideas for you but please note that the itinerary can be customised based on your requests so long as these are feasible. Please check our Places of Interest Section for a list of other places that you can visit in Korea.
