Reviews for Iran vacation


review 17 Oct 2016

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

The homestay was a real highlight. We were also invited to Asura events in Yazd, where we were made very welcome and got to experience the local events.

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

Lots of people will look at you as if you are mad when you tell them that you are going on vacation to Iran and suggests that it is very dangerous. Ignore them. I have never been to a place where people are so pleased to meet tourists, particularly British ones.

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

I think that this trip benefits local people by using local businesses, particularly the home stay and the local restaurants. We also used local guides in places and visited villages where the visit would also have supported the local economy.

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

We really enjoyed this trip. The history is fascinating, the architecture is beautiful, and the people genuinely welcoming and friendly. The only point to be prepared for is that the food, whilst reasonably tasty, isn't varied and you tend to get the same things everywhere. That is not a criticism of the trip, but is just the nature of the sort of food served in restaurants in Iran.
