Best parts:
My third trip to Iran was superbly organized by Elmira, my Persian local agent in Tehran, Iran, my travel agent in Toronto, Canada by Angie M and the best guide in the business, Arash. The tour was a splendid success.
Worst parts:
I did not like being discriminated by the Islamic Republic of Iran government because English is my Mother tongue. I am Canadian. To elaborate - if one wishes to see the PERSEPOLIS SOUND & LIGHT SHOW in English, then the entire seats in the stadium located on the edge of the Persian ruins, must be bought ! The stadium holds a capacity of 450 seats ! So, that meant I had to pay $ 189.00 USD for a 30 minute show ! And the night time show will only be broadcast in English for two weeks during the Persian New Year, ( NOWRUZ ) which runs from March 21 to April 3 every year. The rest of the year no one can see the show in English ! Also it is virtually impossible to buy a copy of the show in English ! But you can easily buy a copy of the PERSEPOLIS SOUND AND LIGHT show in Farsi ! This discrimination must stop !
