We asked some of our friends to write us about their experience in Iran safety:

  • Mark (Traveled to Iran in April 2018)

Having been here for one week , I have felt very safe , the people are friendly and welcoming.

  • Julia (Traveled to Iran in Octoberr 2017)

I have never felt unsafe while traveling in Iran. People are very friendly and helpful. But this is just my impression. I cannot say anything about the general political situation. But I guess for a western tourist the situation might be safe even in uncertain times.

  • Susana (Traveled to Iran in September 2017)

Dear Setareh
Concerning what you requested , you can tell your friend that I had the most wonderful impression and memories of Iran, so touching that made me return again and again to explore the different regions of the country. I have traveled alone and with another friend in different times. Always women and we never felt any kind of unsafety ….on the contrary, we were always treated in a very friendly, reliable and respectful way. The country has a great touristic potential that is a never ending discovery. Historically is very rich, the patrimony is incredible, the nature is in many places unique . The food is really tasty. The historical and traditional hotels are a charm. I recommend Iran to everybody and to be honest words mean nothing, so better to witness by herself. I am sure she will love it. All the people that i know that traveled to Iran just loved it.
Wish you the best….just one more thing…..Iran has great guides very skilled in languages …..
