It is all about the small details in every little moment
Above Borders wants to give you experiences of a lifetime.
Therefore we are aware of how important every impression is, in regards to your first contact with us or the first time you sign up for one of our tours. As a travel company, we are convinced that our tours are really good. However, the challenge for us is how we can explain exactly why the experiences we create, will be memories that you can look back at and enjoy for as long as you can remember.
Our fellow travellers are much better at describing this:
As a participant in the group, the only thing you have to think about is how you will enjoy and take in all the new impressions of the destination.
Above borders has definitely put a lot of time and effort into creating this tour and I can highly recommend them as a travel company.
Now 14 days after returning home from the marathon tour to North Korea with Above Borders I am still very excited about my experiences.
Above Borders has great knowledge about the country and the culture. Therefore they give good advice on which behaviour to show to get the best experience possible.
So if you are sitting out there, questioning yourself if such a trip would be suitable for you, I can tell you with great confidence that travelling with Above Borders is something you never will regret.
