Where every tour is an adventure in learning
Tongil Tours is committed to creating DPRK travel experiences that go deeper than the average North Korea tour. And we pledge to offer these experiences at very competitive rates.
We encourage travelers to go deeper, stepping inside North Korea for a few days through academic and popular readings before commencement of your trip. While readings are of course not mandatory, we believe that light pre-trip academic exploration and preparation greatly enhances any first-hand experience of North Korea. We’re able to bring on board our academic partners, which include some of the world’s most well known North Korea experts, to deliver lectures and Q and A sessions for our groups. We can also assist universities and schools with more rigorous, customised reading and lecture programs based on academic materials and the help of experts from the field of Korean Studies.

Tongil Tours was founded on the premise that travel to North Korea would be greatly enhanced by partners and staff who focused on Korean Studies at the postgraduate and undergraduate levels at reputable institutions. Working with our DPRK partners, we leverage that knowledge to create experiences that go beyond tourism to academic-grade study and exchange. It is in that spirit that we offer this category of academic excursions that will complement an academic program in Korean Studies, supplement studies in a peripheral field, or simply satisfy a layperson’s desire to gain deep understanding of the DPRK and northeast Asia.
