We have three people working on a film in Iraq.

We would like to do it with a guide.

We have 2 cameras for est. $6000 each, which is a safety concern.

We plan to make shots in bigger cities but also we would like to visit some ruins like Ur or Babylon etc.

Is it possible to hire some "tour" guide in Baghdad and travel safely with them?

Or hiring such a person is not possible in Iraq?

We would be travelling only during the day, never at night.

  • Hi. As you've been a member for 6 months, you've probably seen the faq. As such, you'll be aware each post should contain one question. if you have multiple questions, please ask them separately. In addition, asking for 'your opinion' is polling, which is also against the rules in the faq. As such I'm closing the question, and when you edit it to meet the requirements, please flag it for reopening - it's an interesting topic and mission, but needs to follow the rules. Thanks!

  • Thank you a lot for reordering the words. I am not a native English speaker so I make a lot of mistakes.
