Travel with Haval Qaraman, Iraqi Kurdistan Guide

My husband and I just returned from an unforgettable trip to Iraqi Kurdistan. We had a chance to explore several historical sites and visit breathtaking regions all across the country. We had read about the safety of Iraqi Kurdistan prior to going, but we were taken aback by how safe the region actually is, despite all news about the area and warnings from friends and family. We never once faced any issues at any point on our trip.

Haval Qaraman was indispensable on our trip. Not only is he extremely trustworthy, responsible, and dedicated to his job, he is genuinely interested in making sure one visits all important destinations in the region. He goes above and beyond what a "normal" guide does, and for that, we are ever-grateful. We spent seven days with Haval and found that he was excellent at his job. He really knew all the ins-and-outs of the country, every beautiful spot for taking a photo, and was interested in discovering more places to take his clients. Second, there are several checkpoints when you enter and leave a city or town, and it is important to have a guide to translate to the checkpoint officers about the nature and purpose of the visit. Haval was able to ensure a smooth process during these checkpoints. He was able to talk his way into all important areas, regions, historical sites--it was truly incredible! We would not have been able to visit some of these areas without the assistance of a guide. Haval made all of this simple for us. Lastly, Haval was so courteous and kind. He invited us to dinner with his family on the last night, which made the end to our trip even more special.

We couldn't have asked for a better trip and a better tour guide. I would highly recommend visit Iraqi Kurdistan with Haval.
