Package for Iraq tour prices changes depending on the number of days and the quality of hotels. Consequently, a 3-star or 4-star hotel tour will be cheaper than a luxury tour featuring 5-star hotels. The trip cost gets cheaper depending on the people that travel with you since the transportation price will be divided by everyone.

The second situation is if you buy one place in our guaranteed departures for Iraq group tours. In this case, you will join a group of people traveling along using the same transportation. We set up specific dates with a certain number of open seats so solo travelers can quickly and affordably join our Iraq tour agency.
