I had an excellent time in Iran with Magic Carpet Travel.
This really is a country that has to be visited, the overwhelming feature really has to be the people who are incredibly friendly. They are happy to chat to you and on quite a few occasions they wanted to have their photograph taken with you and are more than happy to have their photograph taken as well.
It is perfectly safe here, you have nothing to worry about on those grounds whatsoever.
For me the highlights of the tour were :
- Visiting the troglodyte village and staying in the hotel there built into rocky hillside.
- Isfahan. There are 2 bridges over the river there which are both very social locations for everyone there, great for people watching and a chat.
- Yazd. On the surface this didn’t look like an interesting place until you got into the heart of the old city where there are lots of alleyways to explore.
- Shiraz was interesting for the markets there.
Also worth mentioning that the mosques are interesting places to visit and you made to feel very welcome.
Had a great time and came back with great photographs and good memories.
