When you announce to friends, family and colleagues that you've just booked a holiday in Iran (an 'Axis of Evil Tour' as they might see it), their responses tend to be fairly predictable. They range from the geographically mistaken 'but isn't there a war there?'(nope, that's Iraq) or 'aren't ... Read review

Holidays in the Axis of Evil - an A-Z of Iran Review with images

AdvantagesFabulous people, fascinating things to see

DisadvantagesHeadscarves, awful food, expensive visas

"When you announce to friends, family and colleagues that you've just booked a holiday in Iran (an 'Axis of Evil Tour' as they might see it), their responses tend to be fairly predictable. They range from the geographically mistaken 'but isn't there a war there?'(nope, that's Iraq) or 'aren't they fighting with Israel?' (nope, that's Lebanon) to the most predictable of all responses - a look of bemusement and the question "What on earth would you want ..." Read review

Iran - Not the country I had seen on the TV

Advantages People, Food, History, Architecture

Disadvantages Cars, Cars, Cars, Cars

"I travelled to Iran with my Iranian wife and daughter with no concerns at all, it was a place I had heard so much about that I was desperate to see it with my own eyes. The Iranian community had been amazingly friendly and hospitable since I had married my wife especially as I had failed to pick up more than very basic Farsi!! Our 2 week holiday was the most amazing time I have spent in my life so far. We didn't go with a tour we stayed with my wifes ..." Read review

An Insider's View

AdvantagesBeautiful scenery, different climates, good food and much more

DisadvantagesLacks a tourism infrastructure

"I am not writing this as a tourist who's been there, but I've lived most of my life in this country. Though officials talk a lot about getting more tourists into the country, but when it comes to reality, if you dare to take the risk and go there, they do their BEST to make sure you won't come back! Iran has lots of places which tourists would like to see and experience, but it lacks a descent infrastructure to support those who come in. Arriving ..." Read review

Advantages

Disadvantages

"Iran, a country that means different things to different people. I only remember Persia and the Iran before the revolution. This was a country full of riches and beauty, it was accelerating in success and rocketing in finance, it was being marked on the map and feared by the west. I am not hear to talk about politics, I want to tell every one how one country has changed and managed to stand on its own feet. The most impressive part about Iran ..." Read review
