Why Book With Us

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 sense of adventure. We have brought thousands of people to experience the uncharted territory of North Korea with us.


    • We offer premium services at standard tour rates. Your comfort is a priority. Our packages offer accommodations at the prestigious Koryo Hotel and other luxury hotels at competitive rates while other packages are often second-class accommodations and basic guest houses in remote areas.


    • Our group sizes are smaller than tours from other companies to maximize your interaction with our local guides. Unless otherwise stated the group size will have a maximum of 10.


    • Visa fees and return flights are all included in the published package price. We don’t charge additional unexpected fees on top for these necessary services.


    • We offer easy online booking, just drop us an email to get started. You will never need to send us a single piece of physical paper, physical visa photos or even your physical passport. Everything required to join our tours can be filled out online, including your visa application, and then we simply 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 take nearly all types of payments. We even take bitcoin.


    • 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.
