Why choose Uri Tours?

  • We have over 15 years of experience safely bringing people to the DPRK. Our tours are authentic and cultural with a kick of adventure. We are now the largest American provider of North Korea tours and travel and have brought thousands of people, including many Americans, to experience the uncharted territory of North Korea with us.
  • We offer premium services at standard tour rates. Our packages offer accommodations at the prestigious Koryo Hotel and other luxury hotels at competitive rates while other packages offer basic guest houses in remote areas.
  • Our group sizes are smaller than other company tours to maximize interaction with our local guides.
  • We offer easy online booking either through our website or via email. You will never need to send us a single piece of physical paper, physical visa photos or even your physical passport. We take everything online and we meet you in China with your North Korean visa in hand. Our mission is to make the logistics as easy as possible so that you can focus on having a trip of a lifetime.
  • We are the only company that offers international credit card processing with no extra transaction fees. We take nearly all credit cards. We even take bitcoin. No additional transaction fees ever. The price you see if the price you pay.
  • Our pricing is in USD but we take RMB payment through our office in China.
  • Visa fees and return flight fees are all included in the published package price. We don’t charge additional fees on top of the base price for these necessary services.
  • We offer the best marathon apparel and merchandise. In 2014, we were the first company to give away marathon t-shirts. In 2015, we were the only company to give away finisher medals, dri-fit marathon shirt and an embroidered branded sports towel, all included in our package. We also included timing chips in the package free of cost, whereas other companies made timing chips a paid option.

We’re a service-oriented team with a mission to deliver an insanely unique, fun and solid experience to adventure travelers worldwide. Come and run the Pyongyang Marathon with us!
