I enjoyed this absolutely fabulous trip just as places are opening up post-Covid. I felt very comfortable with the regulations in Iran, especially since we were all vaccinated. The sightseeing was better than I ever expected and the people were so friendly and welcoming. Majid and Ramtin were the very best guides! Less
