Baghdad to Erbil Budget Tour

What's it all about?

Due to popular demand we have announced our new brand of Iraq budget tours!
What’s the difference? Our budget trips are one day less & will not have a western tour leader accompany the group. Don’t worry though, the group will be no bigger than 8 people and will be led by our expert local guides.
The Baghdad to Erbil tour will take in all of the major highlights of federal Iraq between the two cities. The area is spoiled with world-class heritage and is completely unspoiled by tourism meaning we will feel like the only foreign travelers in town.
There is a huge amount of ancient and modern history waiting to be explored. We’ll travel from Baghdad heading south to Babylon & the holy cities of Najaf & Karbala. We will also head all the way to the Iraqi Marshlands before driving north to Samarra, Mosul and finally Erbil. We cover a huge amount of ground with our expert local guide keeping us entertained and explaining all as we go.
Join us for this one of a kind Iraq budget tour and why not add a quick visit to northern Iraqi Kurdistan directly afterwards!
