Iran Travel Questions

Is it safe/practical for an American couple to visit?



Based on reading from many sources about Iran, I understand that most of the Iranian people are amazing and very friendly and do not have any hostility towards Americans. But what about the Iranian government? Do they make travel for us so difficult to make it all unenjoyable?

I have read that Americans need a ” tour guide” anywhere all the time during the trip and the itineraries must be approved beforehand.

I am just thinking about the considerable costs associated with travel to beautiful Iran.

Let us tell you that Iran is quite a safe country and the Iranians are very friendly and hospitable. However, like anywhere else, with some common sense, you will be on the safe side. Keep away from unfamiliar places, especially at night. Be friendly to the hosts, and they will return the gesture. Don’t be scared or shocked if Iranians approach you, they want to communicate, it all comes from the hospitality behavior of these people.
