We are very pleased to announce our group tour list for the 2013 North Korean Tourism season. This year looks to be very special being the first full season since the death of General Kim Jong Il, and the new tenure of Kim Jong Un.

All tours are accompanied by a YPT guide. All DPRK visas are arranged by YPT

Group tours are the way to go in the DPRK, and a YPT group tour is the stuff of legends.

All of our group tours are accompanied by one of our well respected and super fun guides, who is not only an expert on the country, but also at opening doors that simply can’t be opened on an unguided tour.

All of our groups are capped at 24 people maximum, at 25 pax we split into two groups, two buses, and two western guides. We are the only company that do this to help avoid the being herded like cattle feeling . As we like to say: we do group tours for people that hate group tours.

All tours unless otherwise stated originate and end in Beijing. For entry into the country we offer free choice of flight, or train (we personally love the train). For exit we take the train as standard (unless otherwise stated), or you can fly out for a small extra fee.

We offer discounts for all returning customer and group bookings.

YPT charge an additional cost price fee of €50 to process your visa. At no point are you required to give up your passport, or visit a DPRK embassy in your country, or abroad. Every facet of the visa process is taken care of by YPT.

Providing you are not a journalist, we can get you your visa.

Speciality Tours

Aside from our full program of tours to the DPRK we are also running a limited number of tours aimed at special interest groups, or arranged around special, sporting, or cultural events happening throughout the country.

Specialty Tours work almost exactly the same as normal tour, but with more emphasis and time spent on the themed event, with all tours of at least 6 people being accompanied by one of expert western guides.
