North Korea Tour Guide

All North Korea tours are accompanied by two local tour guides. This is mandatory for any tourist visiting North Korea. With Rocky Road Travel we also provide a western tour leader on all our tours to the hermit kingdom. What is having a North Korea Tour guide actually like?

The guides are trained at a specialist tourism college in Pyongyang. Most speak English or Chinese. Others also learn German, Russian, Italian, Spanish and Japanese.

Friendly and welcoming tour guides

The North Korean guides are very friendly, knowledgeable and go above and beyond to show you their country. By the end of the tour you won’t want to leave them!

Even though they are the face of the regime, to gain their trust it’s best to ask them questions about their lives rather than sensitive questions about the government. They receive these questions all the time. Ask them about their personal lives and you will gain a unique insight into real North Korean life.

After the tour unfortunately there is no way of contacting the guides again. At Rocky Road Travel we receive numerous letters and gifts to pass on to particular North Korean guides. We do our best to pass any messages along. Here’s hoping the country opens to the outside world so that communication becomes easier one day.

Meet your own DPRK guide on one of our North Korea Tours this year. If you have traveled to North Korea before and want to request a certain guide we can also facilitate that. Contact us today on +4915114575768 or email [email protected]
