We just returned from the 10-2013 trip with Other Iraq Tours (now Explore Mesopotamia) led by Balin. It was a really wonderful experience. Balin is a great person and a very knowledgeable guide. He made the trip interesting with stories about the places we visited, the culture, and the history of Kurdistan. The itinerary of the trip includes a variety of sites that are well worth seeing – there was a mixture of historical, religious and cultural sites, as well as sites from Saddam’s dictatorship. The biggest surprise we had was the extensive economic and infrastructure development going on in the country. Finally, the food and hotels were great. All in all, an unforgettable trip.
