    4.0 - Good

    Tourradar is probably one of the most incompetent tour operators i have come across. After taking the deposit money which they were very efficient in they deducted the final payment despite my written request of not doing it without my explicit permission. So don’t ever give them credit card number with large credit! They have done absolutely nothing for the money. Not sure what was their cut on $5k package but they didn’t earn a penny. First they refused to give me contact information for the operator on the ground claiming “privacy”. For three nationalities USA/Canada/UK guidance by the tour operator while in the country is a legal requirement. So they have actually acted against Iranian law. More, they refused to forward me actual itinerary, and tour itinerary presented to me on the ground was completely different from what i was provided with. In addition the list of things which were intended to prepare me for trip was completely wrong, best example was recommendation to bring water purification tablets because water in not safe. This trip was not a camping trip with drinking from streams, it was urban travel where bottled water was safe and plentiful. It was enough to google that subject to know that they completely wrong. I don’t recommend this tour operator to anybody!

    What a great trip! Forgetting for a moment the heat in June, travelling around Iran was even more spectacular than I expected. Our guide helped put into perspective the history of the country and did so with fantastic passion.
