FAQ: Do I have to attend a pre-tour briefing before traveling to North Korea?
Koryo Tours requires all travellers on our tours to attend a pre-tour briefing and will not send any customer to Korea without a briefing. The briefing is an important part of the tour and tour experience. Please factor it into your travel plans.
While we believe North Korea is a safe travel destination, like anywhere, there are specific guidelines and rules that need to be followed in-country. Some of guidelines are unique to North Korea and even experienced travellers may find them unfamiliar or confusing without proper introduction or context.
