Sadly, I lost contact with a couple of Syrian friends in 2011 (I remain hopeful they are safe or got out) but I was able to keep in contact regularly, by sms or phone, with a friend in Latakia.

We are looking into the cost of Iranian visas for our trip - and they seem very expensive! Am I right in thinking that there are two fees - the one you pay a company to get you the code number, and the one you pay for the visa - currently £150 for British citizens? It seems insanely expensive!
Me and my girlfriend are planning a 10 day trip to Iran in Easter 2017. We were planning on buying the Lonely Planet guidebook until we noticed that it was published over four years ago - in 2012!

Has anyone had this problem before? Or is there a specific central site I need to book through? I'm also emailing some of the LP recommended ones

I understand getting a Jordan Pass (includes visa and 40 sites incl Petra) is the way to go for the adults. I also understand that kids under 12 get into all sites for free but we will have to get them a visa on arrival at 40 JOD???
In terms of the itinerary, we would like to at least fit in the main…
