What are forum guidelines?

My advice is to ignore Vladimir Travel and these guys that answer to every post. I couldn't get a proper communication with them and dropped them.

I just came back from the same trip today. I'm a woman travelling alone. I used Luxor Travel and couldn't be happier. Wassim from Luxor is going to arrange everything you need and you can ask to visit some of the places that are not on a typical tourist map. I asked to visit a local tennis club and they even arranged a game for me there. My guide was Sana - a lovely local lady that is very knowledgeable and friendly. Sana is professional and has integrity - refuses to receive any commissions when bringing tourists to restaurants or shops. You can ask Wassim to use Sana as your guide and don't forget to tip her like I did (and I feel awful about that). BTW - Damascus and its people are really impressive. There are some of the best bars I've seen - visit George Bar if you can, it is in the old city. If I knew better, I would spend 4 days in Syria and one in Beirut and not the other way around. Beirut is ok but Damascus is stunning and much better organised.

Luxor Travel email is info@luxortravel.net and Wassim will answer soon.

Hi Wojciech,

Over 4 months since you planned on a day tour to Damascus. Just wondering if you ended up going and what the costs were. I am thinking of something similar. Thanks

I am also using Luxor Travel for my 6 day trip to Syria in May. Wassim is the most helpful guy that you can imagine. He answered all questions very patiently and never ever shown any aggression to buy any product. In fact he is helping me out a lot to curate the trip based on my requirements. Looking forward to a great Syria tour.

I just completed a 6D/5N tour of Syria with Luxor Travels. It was one of the best tours of my life. I started from Beirut and reached Damascus. Right from the border crossing to all arrangements made by Luxor was nothing short of being exceptional. From Damascus I went to Krak des chevaliers, Maaloula and Sadnaya. Then I went to Palmyra, Homs, Hama and Aleppo. Syria is stunning. Not for once I felt threatened or intimidated. My guide Belal was with me throughout the journey. He is a Professor of Anthropology. His knowledge of Syria, it history, the Civil War and the ISIS chapter was stupendous. I even got a beautiful gift from Luxor at the end of the trip.

I fully recommend Luxor Travel and Wassim. They are very professional and the same time humane. If anyone is thinking to visit Syria, there's only Luxor and no one else.
