How was your Explore Tour Leader?
" Ouraz (think thats how its spelt) was spot on ,knowledgeable,fun guy always ready to help and had some good idea's
for going out at night in what are some very conservative towns/cities."
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
" Be prepared for hotels to be of very varying standards,screw driver helps to do the odd quick repair. Some towns are very conservative re female dress and towards alcohol. This is a politically sensitive area,you may have to put up with the odd detour. Food,plenty of salads some fresh fish other wise kebabs,great breads.
You may react to the food so carry a small medicine kit to ease any problems. "
Do you have anything else to add?
" Just have an open mind ,try different things especially the foods and above all laugh. Kurdish people are so very friendly.Don't discuss politics its a minefield!"
