Have been operating tours to Afghanistan for several years - mostly on private basis. A fascinating country and whilst the logistics of setting up the tour arrangements are challenging, the people are very hospitable. There are certain arras in the country which are less risky than the other parts. The northern part along with the Kabul - Bamiyan and even Mazar e Shariff are amongst the most interesting and worthwhile to visit.

The people have a tremendous warmth and resilience....the architecture and rich history is astounding. Security is a challenge, and getting around is not easy. The best thing is reading up on these things.....I had published some articles in the New York Times and in Bloomberg News among other places on traveling here and experiencing the culture, so look those up. There is also an excellent Bradt guide to Kabul which gives a lot of detail on security and getting around here. In general, Kabul itself is the easiest to visit. The northern areas, in general, have been the safest, including Bamyan, where the Buddhas had been, which remains a beautiful area to visit.

Hi, Mike! Well, I certainly do remember getting that sense from the Afghanistan chapter of your book. Can you share with us here what were the factors that most pealed to you - and how to overcome the security challenges that visitors might currently face?
