Your Journey in More Detail – The Iran Untour Itinerary
November 11th to 13th, Tehran, Iran
Bustling, ancient, and modern – there is much to see in Tehran, and we’ll get you lost in the enormous Tehran Grand Bazaar, admiring Azadi Tower, dining in cool North Tehran, keeping one eye on the outlandish propaganda artworks, and the other on the stylish locals. We’ll show you the best of Tehran.
On November 13th, we will leave Tehran and travel to the city of Kashan, stopping for a private tour of Qom.
November 13th to 14th – Qom / Kashan / Abyaneh, Iran
Kashan holds an array of historical sights, and here you’ll start to get a feel for the “real” Iran. Kashan is small, but busy, and we’ll check out some of the highlights. On the way out, we’ll wander through nearby Abyaneh, one of the oldest villages in Iran – high in the mountains, famous for colourful head scarves, and segregated door knockers. Uh huh.
On November 14th we will continue our journey south to the city of Isfahan.
November 14th to 16th – Isfahan, Iran
Isfahan is known as “half the world”, and will be your home for two nights. Third largest city in Iran, home of Gaz (Persian nougat, oh yes), and the unbelievably magnificent Naghsh-i Jahan Square. There’s plenty to do – browsing the local bazaar for Persian rugs, visiting the architecturally perfect Shah Mosque, listening to the men sing underneath Si-o-se Pol bridge, or just hang-time with the friendly locals. Your time here is sure to fly.
November the 16th sees us leave Isfahan behind and make our way to the desert city of Yazd.
November 16th to 18th – Yazd, Kharanaq, Iran
Getting further towards the South of Iran, we’ll arrive in the city of Yazd. With two nights here, we have time for a day trip to an ancient abandoned town, performances of indescribable martial arts (all set to funky drum beats), eat the finest pashmak (persian cotton candy), maybe a Camel burger, see the stunning wind-catchers that keep one of the hottest and driest cities in Iran cool, and visit the incredible Zooastrian Towers of Silence.
On November 18th, we will make the journey from Yazd to a desert Caravan-Sarai.
November 18th to 19th – Caravanserai, Iran
Our one night staying inside an ancient caravanserai will be a truly amazing experience, straight out of the long-gone days of the old silk road. Stargazers, you’re going to love the night skies.
On November the 19th we will make the last leg of our journey to the city of Shiraz.
November 19th to 22nd – Shiraz, Persepolis, Iran
Shiraz. Cultural centre of Iran, and our base for three nights. Day trips to the ancient city of Persepolis, the tombs of the kings at Naqsh-e Rustam, checking out downtown Shiraz, sampling the best ice-cream I’ve ever had, and on our last night together we’ll head out on to enjoy a final meal in my favourite restaurant in all of Iran. We’ll reminisce about the good times and plan new ones to come. Tears, optional… (sniff).
BONUS: on one of these nights, we will stay in a great hotel on the grounds of ancient Persepolis.
November 22nd – Departure
November 22nd is all yours. Whether you decide to stick around and sight-see some more, or just need help organizing your transport to the airport, we will be there to help you (and of course have one final Iran breakfast). Hugs, high fives.
TOUR BONUS: you are guaranteed to see far more than what is listed above. Every Yomadic Iran tour is unique, we always take advantage of what may be happening in Iran at the time.Book Now IRAN TOUR – NOVEMBER 11th, 2017
Even More Detail…
Is Iran Safe?
You’ve heard the saying “don’t believe the hype” and nothing could be truer here. Iran is safe, probably safer than the country you live in. Iranians are friendly, hospitable, and welcoming – you’ll be invited to meals, they will chat with you on the streets, and welcome you with open-arms at every opportunity. Tourists are treated with respect – by the Iranian people and the authorities. Many of our solo-female guests have said “Iran is the safest country I’ve ever visited”.
There’s a few small things to know about Iran – such as public customs when it comes to interactions with the opposite sex, photography rules, and of course alcohol consumption – but importantly, it’s well known that Iran has laid out the welcome-mat for foreigners.
Will I get a Visa? I heard it was impossible for my nationality?
Partnering with a respected Iranian travel agent makes getting a visa simple and painless. Please note, we will assist you with everything you need – but the cost of the actual visa is not included in the trip price – as the visa costs vary by nationality. We have a successful track record, and will keep you up-to-date with your visa application process. If you’re unsure of whether your nationality is entitled to a visa, just ask – we are Iranian-visa experts.
Where will we sleep?
From hand picked traditional guest-houses, to memorable hotels, all centrally located and within walking distance of the heart of each city we visit. We really have inspected (and stayed) in each and every property. Most accommodation will include Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and you will always be served breakfast. Variety, and a great nights rest.
What if I’m travelling solo, will I need to pay extra?
You pay the same price whether you’re solo or not. There is no single supplement fee or charge, if you’re happy to twin-share with a maximum of one other person. If you do want your own room…
What if I would like my own room?
Don’t want to play bunk buddy? Prefer your own privacy? Travelling solo? No problems, for a single supplement of €500, you will have your own room every night. Just let us know, we’ll arrange it.
What if I get sick of hanging out with you guys?
There will be plenty of free time, we’ve designed the trip so you have time to do your own exploring – day and night. Make sure you’re back by the time we drive to the next city, or else we will kill you.
So, really, what’s included?
- * All accommodation in Iran for the duration of the tour.
- * Most meals are included – every breakfast, and either lunch or dinner every day.
- * Entrance fees to sites, museums, parks, and more.

And what’s not included?
- * Airfares to and from Tehran are not included – we will assist you with booking your flight if you require assistance.
- * Travel insurance is not included, and is mandatory.
- * Some meals and some drinks – when you’re out doing your own thang, you pay for it.
- * Any fees or charges that you incur as a result of you cancelling this trip once you have made a booking with us, we are not responsible for – including any charges your airline or transport provider charges you.
- * If you arrive on a different day from the commencement of the tour, or very early that same day, you may need to pay for an airport pickup.
- * If you arrive early or depart late, you will be liable for all expenses.
- * Your final taxi to the airport, you will need to pay for. We’ll organise it for you.
The tour ends up in Shiraz. WTF will I do now?
Fear not – the main reason we start and end in different locations is so you get the most out of your time in Iran. Shiraz is a well connected city with many transport options, including flights to Dubai and Istanbul. You may want to return to Tehran – buses, trains and planes will easily get you there. We can assist you in finding an option from Shiraz, that works for you.
What if I can’t make it exactly on the starting date or I have to leave early?
We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals, we really will – please contact us to explain your situation as we offer no guarantees for late arrivals on this trip. As for leaving early – you would make us sad, but we’ll make sure you get safely on your way.
- * You are responsible for obtaining any travel visas you may need – of course, we’ll assist.
- * You need to have travel insurance, it’s a requirement of this tour.
- * For those who wish to stay longer in Iran, we are happy to assist in this regard.
- * Travel can be unpredictable. Things may change. We like to freestyle it a bit. So, some of the itinerary may be subject to change. In the unlikely event that any major changes are required, we will discuss and keep you in the loop at all times. Our goal is to make any changes for the best.
- * In the unlikely event that the tour is cancelled by us (we’ve never cancelled a tour), you will receive a full 100% refund – unless the trip cancellation is due to a “force majeure” event – something beyond our control (such as a natural disaster). However – we will always strive to provide you a full refund – we will go to all lengths to protect our perfect reputation.
What if I have paid, and then I change my mind. Can I get a refund?
Sometimes the best-made plans need to be put on hold, or cancelled. Unfortunately, we will incur very real and substantial costs from the moment you book – bank fees, currency conversion fees, etc etc etc. However – we don’t want to act all big and corporate, so this our promise to you:
- * if you cancel before 100 days of the tour start date, 500 Euro of each ticket may be non-refundable (read on). Due to the increasing popularity of visiting Iran, and the small number of suitable accommodations, we are booking your room well in advance and have genuine non-refundable costs.
- * If you cancel between 75 and 100 days before the tour start date you may lose up to 50% of your ticket price.
- * if you cancel within 75 days of the tour start date, you may lose up to 100% of your ticket price (this is due to the difficulties in finding a replacement for you at such short notice).
- * HOWEVER – WE WILL ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING – so, if we fill your seat after you cancel, we will refund a MINIMUM of 90% of your full ticket price.
What if I still have some unanswered questions?
OK. I’m convinced, eager, and can’t wait to come along…. how do I pay?

* Iran is what inspired all of the Yomadic Untours. When I first visited Iran in late 2012, I started taking notes. Collecting business cards. Making contacts. Checking out hotels, restaurants, cafes. I knew, I needed to bring people here to experience the best travel surprise in the world. I now spend several months each year on-the-ground in Iran, to make sure our “untours” remain up-to-date, fresh, and the best way to see Iran. I really hope you can take part in this final 2017 Yomadic Iran tour – it will be the trip of a lifetime, I promise.
