Testimony: "I returned on Thursday and wanted to tell you how impressed I was with all your arrangements during my tour of Kurdistan. I cannot think of any way you could have given me a better insight into this fascinating region. Please convey my heartfelt thanks to my wonderful guide and driver. I hope that they enjoyed my company as much as I enjoyed theirs. I have appointed myself as your unofficial, unpaid promoter and hope that my friends take my advice and contact you. Wishing you every success in future endeavors!" Ruth-Louise Moran, April 2019
