Trip review
Iran

loved their trip to Iran

I arrived in Shiraz first to avoid the extra flight back to Tehran. But, the guide said that arriving in Tehran first would make more sense in terms of history. Basically, a lot of the in the information given to me in Shiraz wouid have made more sense had I arrived in Tehran first. Then, I went to Ishfahan, followed by Tehran. It was a total of 6 days/5 nights. This tour mostly concentrated on mosques and ancient sites. I also got to experience walking through bazaars to see what the locals have to offer. Some of the mosques are very ornate. The people in general are very welcoming. The young kids are curious about the tourists and want to practice their English with you.

Best parts:
The guide, Banefshah, is very knowledgeable, helpful, and approachable. Bekradi house in Ishfahan is very beautiful, complemented by wonderful home cooked dishes and hospitable staff. Iranian food is delicious, fragrant, and full of flavor.
Worst parts:
The days where the trip was going from one city to another was really packed itinerary. But, I guess that is the only way to see the best sites in between the cities. I wish the driver would look at his cell phone less often, as this is a safety issue. However, the driver is skilled enough that I have less qualms about it than other drivers that I know.
