About the tour

This tour will make you feel that you are traveling back in 1950s where man still shape the iron and copper in the small shops and where tailors sewing on the street. It is a great atmosphere to enter in the narrow streets and listening the voice comes from the craftsmen hummers designing the copper. The market is colorful with the Kurdish and Arabic people who still wear their traditional costumes.

Loved the tour of the Souk with Salih. Enjoyed seeing all the goods for sale, the craftsmen working and the great music in the courtyard was an extra bonus. Thank you, Salih.
