Information on Travel to Iran

Due to the increased interest in travel to Iran, many of our usual hotels are getting booked up, as well as the guides and vehicles used for the tours. At this time, if you would like a private/FIT tour for the spring, it should be booked well in advance. Other times of the year are not quite as busy. Please contact us if you have any questions at all about travel to Iran.

Please note: When traveling with a Caravan-Serai Tours group or private tour to Iran, you are required to stay with the group/guide at all times. As a condition of issuing visas for foreigners, particularly Americans, the Iranian government requires the guide and the tour operator to be responsible for you and your actions while you are in Iran. Transfers by our coordinator in Iran to and from the airport are required – no taxis are allowed. If you have any questions about this please call us. Thank you for your understanding.
