We would be delighted to provide you with an individual tour tailored especially for you but please keep in mind that individual tours to North Korea are very similar to standard group tours in terms of their organization, structure and security arrangements. Individual tours are more expensive than group travel, so if you are looking for a cost-saving option, please have a look at our group tours.

Even one person traveling individually to the DPRK will be accompanied at all times by two compulsory guides from the Korean host travel company in addition to the local guide provided by each museum, exhibition or any other place of interest. No deviation from the confirmed program is accepted as legitimate (unless it is endorsed by the host company managers). To attempt to embark on an unguided tour around the country is absolutely forbidden. 

However, individual travelers will be offered an individual means of transportation (a sedan instead of bus), have more freedom in choosing their own meals, and enjoy more time and flexibility in visiting places of interest.
