Not really, except that I spent money on the vacation.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We enjoyed our whole tour from the snowy mountains of Tehran across desert sands to Kerman finishing with a visit to Persepolis and the tomb of Cyrus the great. We will remember the friendly people, amazing architecture, historical sights and the UNESCO gardens.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Allow about 3 months for getting vacation planned and visas organised. Check internal rates of exchange, we found Currency exchange offices gave a very favourable rate compared to the internet. Try to experience a heritage hotel, it was very pleasant to sit out in the courtyard gardens in April when we travelled.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We had the same local guide for 2 weeks and he helped us use local shops, cafes and markets and enabled us to talk with many Iranian families. Paying entrance fees to museums, gardens and historical sights helps fund conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

An excellent tailor made tour which enabled us to explore a large area of Iran and find out about the history and current way of life.
