Iran 8 Days tour

My husband and I decided to take a short tour in Iran in view of our holiday, which made my husband search on the internet for a special travel agency that has experience in this field after a long research we found this agency that is supervised by people of their morals very very high and they love their work a lot, it was really hard to find an agency like that one, who take care of us all the tour because we do not want to give our money to a person who doesn't care and doesn't give value to his work and laughs at us as many agencies do. Our guide's name Hassan we were so glad that we met him because we want to get some ideas about the country and some amazing destinations like Isfahan Naqshe jahan, Persepolis Shiraz and many others, everything was really 100℅ wonderful because it was the first time for us in Iran and I am quite satisfied.

Iran tour

This was my first trip to Iran and having spent a 8 days in Shiraz, Isfahan, Tehran which was very successful and highly recommended. Organisation, including pickups, transfers, guides, and hotel selection worked very well. It was a really good way to get a snapshot of the highlights. Persepolis was a great start with well preserved old Iran, and Nasir ol Molk Mosque was spectacular. Naqshe Jahan Square was must-see and I am glad we spent several hours there - definitely worth it. If time is limited, you want to see the highlights well without a rush and very comfortably, you won't regret it.
