I'm organising a trip to Iran for myself and three others in June. We have most of our trip planned, in terms of where we want to go and how we'll get around, but there is one part we still have questions about.
We'd like to travel directly from Esfahan to Tabriz, ideally flying because it's so much quicker. Do we have to fly via Tehran? And what's the best way to book this flight if so?
Leaving Tabriz, we are planning to do some hiking in the Alamut so would like to get straight…
Hello, first of all, my name is Anty and I'm from Indonesia. I've been to Iran twice with the most recent trip was just yesterday and the first one was last Januari.
I'm just arrived at my homecountry to find that I need to pay an additional amount to my guide and host, let's say $100.
Is there anyone can help me to give/transfer the money to him? I can pay back with Paypal or if Indonesian friend see this, I can pay back with domestic transfer.
Thank you in advance and I'm very sorry for the…
My flight is booked with a 5-6h layover in Tehran where we change airline-companies from AirAsia to Pegasus Airlines, where we also need to check out and in our bags.
I have seen on a couple of government sites that you may need a transit-visa and on a couple of other website that you do not need a visa because someone who works there will sort it out for you.
Have anyone had experience with a layover in Tehran before?
What should do?
Sorry to flog this horse even further, but I can't find a definitive answer.
I am planning a trip to Iran on a British passport, I understand I either need to go with an organised group tour or have my own bespoke Iranian tour guide for the duration, with an itinerary.
Just how strict does the tour have to be? For instance if I want to spend 3 days in Shiraz, does my itinerary need to be packed for the whole 3 days whilst I'm there. Do I get to wander the city alone for a little if my tour…
I am in Varzaneh and I need to go to Garmeh tomorrow.
Any ideas ?
Apparently there is a bus to Khur from Isfahan who might stop at Varzaneh but I can not get it confirmed here.
Any idea of the going rate for a driver for the big day from Shiraz to Yazd via the three usual sites (Persepolis and co)?
If we are arriving in Shiraz only 36 hours before wanting to do this (and in peak season - early May), should we try and book this before even arriving?
I have just came back from a 12-day Treasures of Persia Tours with Key 2 Persia (Pars Travel agency) and I am satisfied with this agency. At first I was a little bit affraid to trust a small local travel agency but I am happy I did trust them. The saleswoman has answered me quickly to all my questions. I received the visa grant number (letter of invitation) only 8 days after it was submitted to the ministry of foreign affairs in Tehran. It took me 2 weeks to receive the visa after…
