Solo Traveller

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
