UK Passport Holder Needs to Hire Guide to Visit IranJust applied for a visa to Iran through the consulate in Frankfurt where I have been living for several years. Intend to travel with a German friend and colleague. He got his visa no problem. I, however, as a Brit not only have to pay more, but also have to hire a guide to tour around with. I was quoted 50 USD + food/transport/accommodation per day for the guide.
Does anyone know whether I can hire my own guide? Or do I need to take the one assigned to me by the Ministry in Tehran?
Anyone with experience with this?

1Who told u that? Only Americans must take a guide along while visiting Iran or...they must join a group tour. Brits are not obligated to do either. You should contact an Iran-based travel agency to get you a tourist visa. Will cost you normally 35 € plus of ourse the fee for the visa itself which YOU will pay later at an Iranian embassy. I recommend touranzamin travel agency in tehran because they are so fast but there are other good ones too, good luck. Amir in tehran.
