My friend and I took a road trip from Shiraz up to Tehran in June of 2019. Iran has been on my bucket list for quite some time so it was amazing to be able to discover this gorgeous country.

For the trip from Shiraz we had a guide/driver, Mr Behrang Yaghoobi (https://www.instagram.com/behrang.yag…) who came to use through Iran Doostan Tours https://irandoostan.com/ which I highly recommend.

As this is a verrryyyy long video I made a index below so feel free to use it.

00:05 Eram Garden
00:30 Naranjestan Museum
01:31 Nasir ol Molk Mosque (Pink Mosque)

05:20 Afif Abad Garden
06:12 Persepolis

21:46 Abyaneh

Kashan:

Here are a couple of tips to make your trip even better:
1. bring your own water bottle. There are plenty of free filling stations available to help you stay hydrated

2. men can wear full length trousers and a t-shirt. For women you will need to be fully covered and wear a head covering. Longer kimono style tops and long cardigans with full sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves are ideal. I also do not recommend silk scarves as they have a tendency to slip

3. bring either US Dollars or Euros to convert when you are there. It is better to bring more than you think you will need.

4. go with an open mind

Iran is a truly beautiful country so make sure to enjoy it.
