Sheffer is a freelance cameraman who founded Safarat Tours with former colleague Noori Qadtullah, according to the Daily Mail. The two men made their first organized trip to Afghanistan last October, with an even larger group expected to go there in the coming weeks.
According to Sheffer, the composition of the group is varied, for some members visiting Afghanistan is a dream come true. “From our point of view, Afghanistan is a meaningful destination, otherwise we wouldn’t be offering it. We are constantly evaluating the situation there and would never hesitate to cancel or curtail a trip if anything changes,” the company’s website states.
But at the same time, the co-founder claims that the presence of members of the Taliban movement is noticeable in all cities and there are patrols on the main roads. Sheffer therefore admits that the trip can be dangerous and risky in terms of targeted attacks on foreigners.

The destinations of the next trip will be the Afghan cities of Kandahar and Helmand, neither of which has escaped war conflicts in the past. “We offer an insight into Afghanistan while giving jobs to the Afghans themselves, who find themselves in a terrible situation and struggling with poverty and unemployment,” Sheffer told LadBible, adding that local residents should not be punished for the Taliban’s behavior.
They will defend themselves as spies, says the former soldier
Some members of the British Parliament and security specialists describe organized trips to Afghanistan as reckless. Former British Army Captain Tobias Ellwood said the group of tourists would be treated like spies in the country, not foreign visitors.
Since the visit to Afghanistan, not only the British Foreign Ministry, but also the Czech one, for example, have been betraying. It draws attention to the long-term unstable situation in the country, the risk of terrorist attacks and the millions of landmines and unexploded ammunition in rural areas.
