Young Pioneer Tours

Company Statement Regarding Troy Collings’ Passing

Thursday 5th of March 2020

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Troy Michael Collings. Troy passed away last week from a heart attack.

Troy was instrumental in establishing Young Pioneer Tours as one of the leading travel companies for North Korea. We here at YPT have lost a visionary and a true pioneer to the travelling industry.

Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know or to be led on a tour by Troy have lost a dear friend.

No words can adequately express our sadness over Troy’s death and our condolences are passed onto his family in New Zealand. We will honor Troy’s memory by continuing our efforts in YPT and to continue the work he loved so much.

Please read this wonderful obituary from NK News.
