Hi, We are setting off for a tour of Iran in two days time, We have received conflicting advice about the correct amount to tip, and would appreciate info from someone who has been recently
We will arrive at Tehran International Airport on a Friday at 4.30 AM. Our intention is to hire a taxi at IKA and spend some hours in Qom, from there take a bus to KASHAN.
Since it's a Friday, do you know the visiting hours for non-muslims? Gate 14 for non-muslims?
Any idea about recent cost of taxi from IKA to QOM?
24th may we start our trip into iran. 25th may we will sleep in a shelter on the way up to mount shir kuh (closed to yazd). 31st may, on the way up to mount damavand, we will sleep at gusfand sara and at the 1st and 2nd june at bargah sewom camp. looking for more information, if public sleeping places open at that time? otherwise we will carry our tent and gas cooker with us. thanks for further information. johannes
I will travel from Qom to Tehran before I catch my flight home, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a hotel near the Imam Khomeini airport?
Many thanks in advance!
I'm going to Iran soon and after a few weeks of travelling I want to cross the border to Turkey at Kapiköy (Van). I've read that there aren't any trains anymore but what about busses? And what about the safety? I want to go to Istanbul, but also visit Van, Diyarbakir, Dersim. Is this possible or would you recommend to take the bus over Armenia, Georgia and the black sea?
I would arrive to IKA on 06 of may at 3:30 in the morning, but would like to go directly to Tabriz. Someone could tell me if there are some direct flights starting from IKA, or even from Mehrabad, in the morning (maybe before lunchtime) and how much would they cost?
Hi! I'll go to Iran next month. I'm looking for clean and cheap accomodation. Can you suggest me hotel, possibly telephone number and e-mail too. Follows my itinerary:

I am wondering about following bus connections. Could u pls advise? I would appreciate schedule also.
- Kashan to Hamadan - is there direct bus or only via Qom to change bus?
- Kermanshah to Takab (to see Takht e Soleiman)
- Takab to Tabriz or Orumieh
- Tabriz to Gazor Khan
Thanks so much in advance!
I was trying to book ticket for my upcoming trip. I tried over telephone and someone (presume its the owner Mr Mousavi ) informed me to send the request for room booking only two days before my departure date. can anybody here confirm if this is the way they do booking??.
He spoke not much perfect english and he even advised me if someone at airport ask about my stay just tell them " Firouzeh Hotel" (i already got visa).
BTW he even agreed for airport pickup.
