Pyongyang Travel is excited to offer transport enthusiasts the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join one of our Public Transport Tours in North Korea. Exclusively with us you will have the chance to see both lines of the Pyongyang Metro, get off at rarely seen stations of both the Chollima and the Hyoksin Line and shoot as many photos as you like. Normal tourists are only allowed to visit a maximum of 4-5 stations. You can be among the first western tourists to get the persmission for an extended ride on both metro lines. Furthermore, our groups do charter rides in former East German Tatra trams as well as in Chollima trolleybuses. Relying on our experience with Public Transport Tours in North Korea, it may even be possible to ride on a motored city bus. The tours also offer innumerable photo opportunities of vehicles in the regular operation - a sight which has already become a rarity in Central Europe.

It is particularly interesting for fans of the Berlin transport that the entire Pyongyang Metro is now operated entirely with former Berlin U-Bahn trains (type D, "Dora-trains"). Those trains cannot be seen in Berlin anymore, only in Pyongyang. Their windows still show signs of Berlin graffiti. You will also have the chance to talk to represantatives of the Pyongyan Metro, who provide information on the stations and their themes as well as on how the antique metro cars are maintained for everyday use.

Apart from such much public transport, we will of course also enjoy the attractions of Pyongyang as well as program points at other locations in North Korea.
