As a region, yes, as an independent and/or sovereign state, no.

Kurdistan is a term applied to regions of southeast Turkey, northeast Syria, northern Iraq, and northwest Iran in reference to the Kurdish ethnic majority who live on that land. The Kurds, by and large, want independence from their host nations and to create an independent republic on these majority Kurdish lands, but this has not yet happened. The closest to this are the Iraqi and Syrian Kurdistans which have become de facto independent as a result of the Iraqi Civil War (between the government and ISIL) and the Syrian Civil War.

How do you go tour Kurdistan?

In the case of Turkish and Iranian Kurdistan, you get VISAS to those nations and then proceed to go to the Kurdish-majority regions. In the case of Iraqi Kurdistan, you get a special VISA to visit Iraqi Kurdistan from the Iraqi Embassy or upon arrival in Iraqi Kurdistan (if you are a national from certain countries and are arriving in Iraqi Kurdistan from somewhere other than Iraq). In the case of Syrian Kurdistan, it is currently STRONGLY discouraged to go to Syrian Kurdistan. Although it is among the safest areas in Syria, that is not saying much.
