Iran tour 3 weeks

This tour was great value for money. Good length of time. Local driver and guide very friendly. Mini bus was air conditioned. Nice small group of 12. Actual order of sights sometimes varied from the printed itinerary but got to see everything. Hotels were mostly excellent all things considered.
