Frequently asked questions

Generally, Iran is safe for tourists. Iran has a complicated history and sometimes protests break out (as in recent times) but the crime rate in Iran is similar to, say, the UK. If you assimilate and stay away from politics and protests you are less likely to come into trouble.

A modest wardrobe is advisable and for women, you want to ensure you have a headscarf and closed in shoes.

If you have limited time in Iran, we suggest visiting Tehran, Esfahan and Shiraz. With a little more time you may wish to visit Tabriz or head towards the coastline for a holiday by the Caspian Sea.
