Reviews for Women only tours to Iran


review 25 Apr 2019

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

Pretty well all of it! Visiting bazaars, cafes and restaurants, historical sites and museums, mosques, and ancient cities. Also the cookery classes, village home stay, overnight sleeper train - and perhaps most of all - experiencing the warmth and friendliness of the Iranian people. The countryside is beautiful - deserts, snow capped mountains, river valleys, orchards and rice paddies. Altogether a great experience, and culturally rich. Our guide, Sahar Makaremy, couldn't have been more helpful and enthusiastic, and she did her best to make the visit a memorable one. She was also a great shopper!

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

Don't be put off by the difficulty of getting a visa. Take US dollars or euros, since this is what everyone in Iran wants. Travel light - you can pick up appropriate clothing very cheaply when you're there.

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

I hope so, especially the home stay, and the local cooking classes.

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