What Our Global Villagers Say
If you have been thinking about doing a group tour holiday, Global Villages’ DPRK tour is an excellent choice. In a sense you’re getting the best of both travelling worlds, visiting a prominent nation in geopolitics with, in reality, very little threat to your safety. You are sure to meet interesting people on the tour, and you’ll end it much better able to make your own judgements about this fascinating country. The tour guides seemed to genuinely love talking about the place and were extremely helpful and energetic. I went on this trip to learn more about one of the most enigmatic countries in the world. I didn’t realise how much fun it would be!
The Global Village Tours crew should be knighted, by Michael D. Higgins standing on a keg of Guinness (naturally), for their ability to open the world’s most exclusive borders to the people of Ireland and the rest of the world. Going on the St Patrick’s Day tour in North Korea was not a once in lifetime bullshit cliche. Cliche’s exist for the timid, the confined. Global Village Tours kick cliches in the arse and send you on a journey that is utterly mad and wonderful. Amazing tours from amazing people. Cannot wait to select another course from their mouth watering menu of adventure!
GVT is what you would expect from an organized tour (i.e., professional, well organized, comfortable, and knowledgeable and reliable guides), but without the negative aspects that organized tours may have (e.g. stuffy, boring, rushed, repetitive, feeling like a cow in a cattle, and fellow travelers who prefer the comfortable options over the interesting and exciting options). Not only were the tour and the guides (the GVT and the local guides) great, the fellow travelers in the group were amazing as well – it seems like these trips attract an interesting and open-minded crowd of people!
