    I am so excited to share my trip to Iran with you! Myself and two friends went on a tour of the country and had an absolute blast. It was well worth the money, and the memories I have made will last a lifetime.
    The tour arrangement was the most convenient one although we made a last minute application and Sima was really helpful!

    I started reading about travelling to Iran and was put off by the prospects of all the unknowns. I emailed To Iran Tour and asked for their advice—they were so helpful! They answered all my questions and were able to arrange me a local family dinner in Shiraz! I had a great time exploring Iranian culture, it is spectacular country. To Iran Tour made it possible and I will be recommending them to anyone
