Group & Private Tours

We organise both private and group Afghanistan tours. Whether you’re looking for a bespoke 2 day arrangement or a scheduled group tour – we’ve got you covered.

A tour to Afghanistan offers the opportunity to visit a place that has been shunned by mass tourism for 40 years. It offers a chance to interact with people and places that very few will ever go. Afghanistan offers incredible ancient history, fascinating modern history and a local population that are amongst the world’s most hospitable. 

We constantly monitor the situation on the ground with our partners in Kabul. Tour itineraries are subject to last minute changes depending on the security situation. Your local guide/fixer has the last say.

We don’t advertise the dates of our group tours so please enquire below for more information .

Kabul - Bamian - Herat - Mazar -e Sharif - Band -e Amir - Balkh - Wakhan Valley.

Unsure of where to go? Check  out our Sample Itinerary below. Our Afghanistan tours can be tailored around your interests. The above places are generally considered safe.

You can travel to Afghanistan on any dates but the summer is best avoided due to the heat. The places we visit are regarded as safe.

In most cases the Afghanistan visa must be obtained in your home country or country of residency.

 

We will provide you with an invitation letter to assist in the application process. Exact requirements vary depending on the embassy location.
