I'm hoping to visit Iran at the end of December for 10-12 days. Because I'm American, I have to have a private guide and going solo is very expensive. Is anybody else interested in joining? I'm looking to do a cultural/historical tour of central Persia.

Tour to Iran, March 1-14, 2015  (9 Answers)

I am an American wishing to visit Iran this coming Spring. I need to be either part of a group tour or hire a private guide. I am trying to organize a group of 15 interesting women and maybe a few men ;-) to experience the historic and cultural riches of this ancient land. This tour can also be extended or customized to include sites not part of the initial itinerary.

Is anyone interested in seeing Iran this Spring?

The rock of Behistun  (6 Answers)

We are thinking visiting Iran next September, I know is bit distant future, but we started looking into places to visit and te natively plan two weeks holiday. There is a million of places I want to see and Iran is such a was country.
As I am avid amateur historian, I have always been interested about the Sir Henry Rawlinson achievements in discephering the cuneiform letters and as such the Rock of Behistun is place to see.
Now my question is how feasible is to do it your self or you need to find a tour group to do it. It is in W.Iran close to the Iraq border so bit worried about the safety issue.
Also do we need permission from the Ministry of interior for this visit if so how far in advance we have to submit our proposed internary?
Any info highly appriciated
.
Thank you

General Questions  (4 Answers)

Hello, I am a US citizen and my husband is a Danish citizen. I am trying to arrange travel to Shiraz Iran for 5 days in early March. I am trying to pick a agency this week and then start the visa process. I have a few questions.
1.) Are there any Americans on this forum that have recently traveled to Iran? Did you love it? Did you feel safe? What travel company did you use?
2.) How long did the visa process take in total? Did you buy your tickets before the visa came through? I have heard it can take 10-14 weeks total and I don't want to wait that long and risk ticket prices increasing.
3.) Any other pertinent information you can think of for me? I know Iran is not a common place for an American. It has been one of my travel dreams to see Persepolis.

Arriving late a night with a lot of money..  (2 Answers)

I am arriving late at night in Tehran at the train station (from turkey) and i'll be carrying a lot of cash (i will stay in iran for 6 months). The train is scheduled to arrive at around 9 pm, but it is usually hours delayed, so i might arrive in tehran in the middle of the night. I am a solo female traveller. Any tips? is it safe to take a (official) taxi to a hotel? any hotel advice? I can imagine that thugs are aware that travellers are carrying a lot of cash as there is no other way to get money in iran. advice is much appreciated!

Visa Trouble  (3 Answers)

Hi, I'm am a UK citizen and I've been trying to obtain a visa for Iran. I applied to get my visa authorization number through iranianvisa.com (tour operator) I paid double to have this rushed through approx 5 days, however 2 months on and still no number?? I was told this was being delayed because of the Iranian New Year and then the fact UK citizens needed a guide. However even though I have arranged my own guide, I am now being told by iranianvisa.com that I have to wait 90 days for an approved authorised guide. Meaning it would have taken min 5 months to get my authorisation number off the MFA in Iran. Are any other UK citizens having this much trouble obtaining a visa authorisation number?? I don't know whether this is down to the MFA or the tour operator for the problems I'm having. Many Thanks Syed.

Communication from Iran  (6 Answers)

Hallo

we would like to go to Iran, but we need to be in contact with the family due to potential problems there. What is the price of a GSM card and of calls to Europe? Is Skype an easy option (how's internet? Is censorship making it difficult to stay in touch)?

Also, we are used to drive around by ourself, are there good maps for the iPhone or Android navigators? Are hotels reservable by internet on the move?

THanks

Maurizio

Canadians applying for Iranian visas  (1 Answer)

Hi. I am interested in hearing from Canadians about any recent (ie. last 12 months) experience they have had in applying for an Iranian visa. Were you accepted or rejected ? And were to applying to travel on your own, or with a group tour ? I'm trying to gauge whether Canadians are usually accepted or rejected, and if that acceptance or rejection is based on whether they are applying for individual travel or group travel.
