We did the same as Lauren — fly into Tehran (from Istanbul) to meet the tour and then when it was all over, we took the train from Iran to Turkey. While it might be possible to take the train to Iran, the agency handling our visa said that we might need to have someone meet us at the border if we took the train and it was a bigger hassle than flying into Tehran.

Good luck with the trip & planning!

I don’t know if this is what Dan and Audrey did, but what I did (as an American) was fly into Tehran, start the tour, and then leave Iran via the train to Turkey.

I only ask because I see the tour officially starts in Tehran.

When we visited Iran that was one of the requirements for us as well – kind of a pain, but we’ve had to go through this in other countries so it wasn’t too much of a shock. Our guide met us at the airport with a driver. No official escorted us out of the airport to check the guide’s ID (i.e., that he was a guide rather than a normal taxi driver) so perhaps it is possible to just exit on your own. But I honestly wouldn’t want to risk it after coming all that way. Also, since we arrived in the middle of the night I was thankful to have someone waiting for me with a sign rather than have to negotiate a taxi at 3AM.

Perhaps an American who has traveled to Iran more recently can share their experience on this?

While there are certainly fine agencies operating direct from Iran, there are a few who advertise low costs…and then there are add-ins. in the small print. It is not recommended to have to transfer yourself…among many other issues.

The tour says that as an American, I must purchase an airport transfer (US $65) and cannot go from the airport to the meeting point hotel on my own. Is this true? What will happen if I arrive at the airport, go through immigration, and just get a taxi into town-which seems to cost less than half the price!

If we apply for your visa it takes about at last 2 official weeks. to submit your reference and 3 days for visa sticker .If you refer to Washington personally then it might be less than that. However its very easy to get it!. The needed documents are : A scan of the first page of your passport (picture) in JPG form. also an application that will be sent to you . It must fill by passenger and send back to us. If you are group that would be cheaper , If you are individual and customized it would be more expensive. However you can travel to Iran free of charge if you collect a group of 5 people. Just pay your return ticket from the origin . Your visa also will be free. For your more information we have also two offices in Tokyo and Osaka . We are expert in Incoming tour ! you can start ! certainly you will be our propagator!
