Couldn't really believe we were in Iran having talked about going for so long! The places and people we were able to meet confirmed for us the generous and hospitable nature of the culture which we had already discerned from Iranian friends in England.

We really enjoyed our trip with G Adventures. Returning to Iran after 30 years was all that we hoped it would be. The tour leaders were wonderful and the itinerary varied and exciting. The best part was reconnecting with the Iranian people. They were welcoming and eager to meet Americans. I would recommend this trip to our friends.

excellent--far exceeded my expectations. The quality of the accommodations was a huge surprise..i was expecting to be sleeping in several "hole in the wall" hotels. The best hotel selection ever on this type of trip.

This really was a fantastic trip- it was my first time on a group tour and I was apprehensive about the whole thing, but our local guide Peyman was first class and the country itself is amazing.
