Expect to be excited, fascinated, and exhausted! You will see many of the major highlights of Iran, though will be pressed to squeeze in everything you want. Keep this in mind, know that you will have to prioritize, that you can’t do it all in the time of the tour, and you will be fine. This is a fast-paced and busy tour. You will always be on the move, staying one or two night in all places except for three day in Isfahan and Tehran. With short stays and free time, it helps to have done some research before about the locations so that you can quickly and easily make the most of your time. Your guide will make suggestions and can help with planning but they are not your babysitter and you will be on your own! Top 3 highlights of this tour for me: 1. Persepolis, interesting cultural lessons. 2. Naghshe Jahan. It has all- gardens,shrines, palaces, arts, food, and shopping. 3. Hormoz island. Mixture of colorful and beautiful mountains and sea, popping into teahouses , and delicious food.Show More...
