This was my second time to travel with Koryo Tours. The first was to North Korea last year, and this trip was to Tajikistan during Koryo's "Persian New Year" tour. I signed up for a second tour with them, because I was so pleased with their approach for the first one.
That is, Koryo's arrangements are thorough, organized, and professional. And better yet, their team makes it fun. The pre-trip communications were prompt, the details and management of the trip during our time in Tajikistan were everything I hoped for, and the follow-up afterwards was great, too.
I especially like that Koryo's tours and guides (Simon in last year's trip to North Korea, and Rich in this year's trip to Tajikistan) make a point of getting their groups off the worn paths. That is, we end up going places, seeing things and interacting with people that would not have been possible without their support and knowledge of the locations that they visit.
I've been lucky enough to travel extensively, and most of the time I've done this alone or with friends. That is, without signing up for tours. But for the locations that Koryo travels to, there's no way I would've had as deep and rich an experience if I tried to do this on my own. I highly recommend Koryo Tours, and am sure I'll be signing up for another as soon as I can.
