Reviews for Iraq Kurdistan holiday


review 1 Nov 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The visit to the battlefield of 331BC Guagemela where Alexander the Great defeated Darius III was particularly good because of the excellent talk on the history and strategy employed. However the scenery in the mountains, the Kurdish people and the many historic and cultural site were all interesting and memorable.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The more you have read about the area first the more I think you get from the trip. Be prepared to be flexible and enjoy it as it comes.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We ate out at amny local restaurants and cafes benefitting local businesses but spent very little money really as there was not much time in shopping areas apart from fairly quick visits to bazaars and a v positive aspect of the trip is the lack of tourist infrastructure.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very enjoyable, an very interesting itinerary, good guide with us, very safe driver (valuable given some of the roads and other drivers!) and an agreable group of people in the group.
