Southern Iraq Tours
Wait – Iraq?
You read that right. Iraq is a tourist destination that needs to be seen to be believed. We have been travelling there for the last five years, and have the perfect Southern Iraq itinerary down. The south of Iraq is another world from the Kurdish north — but luckily, we arrange both Southern and Northern Iraq Tours, as well as Entire Iraq tours to sate your appetite.
How do I get there?
Baghdad, Najaf and Basra serve as the gateway cities to Southern Iraq. Flights are available from the main hubs in the Middle East. Find more information here for more info on getting to Iraq. We also support you with your Iraq visa application. When you sign up for a tour, we will apply for your invitation letter so you can apply for the visa at your nearest embassy.
The south has many incredible tourist sites like Babylon, The Mesopotamian marshlands, The holy cities of Karbala & Najaf and the capital city of Baghdad. There is an abundance of cultural treats waiting to be discovered. The best part is that you will likely be the only foreign tourists in the country as the masses continue to stay away. We think making the trip is worth it, however, read about it further in our Iraq safety blog.
The best time to visit Southern Iraq is from September to April. It gets very hot outside these months. Take USD cash with you as the ATM machines may not accept foreign cards. Our guide will take you to get it changed into Iraqi Dinars.
