Hey Guys!

I m just now travelling Iran, came today into Esfahan and there´s a new hostel up in town. It´s still very basic, inside the flat of a family wo actually still lives there. And they are so nice! If you are looking for a place to stay, surf to http://www.hiesfahan.com/index.php/en/

I just post them here, because they´re not on any network until now, I think. I am like the 8th guest here :)

Regards, Marcus

Hi,
We have booked our flight to Iran today here in Switzerland. So far so good. However, the travel agent informed us about a new visa regulation, which apparently has been in effect for two weeks now. It says that in order to get a visa you have to provide a list with prebooked hotels. He did not offer us any advice since this situation is new for them as well...
Has anyone obtained a visa recently and how did it go regarding this issue?
Thanks!
Paul

Having just returned from a 23 day trip through Iran, I can 100% recommend the excellent Private Guide/Driver I organised and used throughout, Ramin Khosfian - khosfian24@gmail.com - based in Yazd, hometown Mashhad but able to meet up anywhere.

Ramin has full permission/authorisation from the Iran Ministry of Tourism to guide Americans and Brits, for whom this is still mandatory.

Ramin efficiently arranged all accommodation but is open to suggestions, if you have them. His car was…

Me and 2 friends were traveling in Iran in end of April for 2 weeks. We rent a car from Europcar at Imam-Khomeini airport (24/7) (just European driving licence, full insurance and a deposit of 300€ - the car was 46€ a day)and did a trip roughly Tehran-Esfahan-Khorramabad-Kermanshah-Sanandaj-Marivan-Tabriz-Sanjan-Rudbar-Tehran. Gas is 25 cents a litre.
The ususal price for a car with driver is 120-150€ a day plus food and accomodation for the driver, we saved that, just knowing a local driver can…

Hello everyone!

I am traveling to Iran between 16th june and 5th of july this summer. I'm traveling alone and have been doing a bit of research. I'm hoping to travel along the following route: Tehran - Kashan - Esfahan - Yazd - Kerman -Shiraz - Tehran. I'm from Sweden and I'm going for the new 30-day visa on arrival.

I'm wondering if my limited time will allow me to see these places without stressing or if I should consider skipping Kerman. And also any tips or suggestions in general about my…

Hi everyone,

I'm a 22 yo man and I'll be going around Iran with two female friends in August. As we are 3 we won't be able to play it like we are a couple, so I was wondering what kind of issues we might encounter and what strategy we should adopt.
-> will it be possible to share the same room (the three of us)?
-> is it okay to introduce ourselves just as friends?

Thanks a lot for your help!
Ben
