Nellie does not lead or join the WildJunket tours. All our tours are led by experienced and passionate local guides and tour managers. We only work with reliable and trustworthy local tour operators that Nellie has personally traveled with. All our tour guides are qualified and licensed, with years of experience leading travelers around their region/country.

For this Iraqi Kurdistan tour, we are working with Karwan Wahed, a leader in the region’s tourism industry. He has been guiding travelers around Iraqi Kurdistan for more than five years and has tons of knowledge about all things Kurdish. He is energetic and passionate about Kurdish local culture and heritage.

He is one of the best guides Nellie has ever traveled with, always going above and beyond to exceed traveler’s expectations. We cannot rave more about Karwan.
