    We would like to extend our sincere condolences for Otto Warmbier’s family, our deepest sympathies are with those who loved and knew him.

    A tragedy like this should have never happened and we add our voice to the request for thorough investigation and a full explanation of the incident. We have always attached great importance to the safety of our customers and our long experience shows that safety goes hand in hand with the respect of local laws and customs. That is why detailed information about the rules of conduct in the DPRK is the most important part when preparing a tourist to visit the country.

    After the incident with Otto, we will take additional measures to ensure that the information provided by us becomes even more clear and detailed.

    We have just received confirmation that on October 10 there will be a massive military parade in Pyongyang on the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the ruling Workers' Party. It will be the first military parade since 2013. Kim Il Sung Square will be the venue for the main parade but unfortunately it will be off the limits to foreign tourists. However, the parade participants will then march through Pyongyang, and will be cheered by the locals in a festive atmosphere that you can also join-in! Join our 9-12 October or 9-16 October tour.
