Entire Iraq Tour
What's it all about?
It’s the biggest Yazidi festival of the year. The Autumn Assembly, or Cemaiya is a 7 day long festival in honour of Sheikh Adi, who is entombed at Lalish. This will be the centerpoint of this tour. Most Yazidi people in the region will try and make it to Lalish at least once a year during this week. We’ll also see all the rest of Kurdistan’s highlights from Duhok to Sulaymaniyah.
The trip begins however, in southern Iraq. We’ll travel from Baghdad south to Karbala, Babylon, Najaf, the Mesopotamian Marshes and back to Baghdad, Samarra, Mosul & finally Erbil! We cover a huge amount of ground with our expert local guide explaining all as we go.
We conducted our first ever research tour to Baghdad in April 2018 and followed it up with our first regular Iraq tour. It proved to be not only very safe but incredibly informative & fascinating. 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.
Join us for this unique Iraq tour and see the whole of the country!
