To my surprise, I learned that U.S. citizens are not prohibited from touring Iran, provided a licensed tour guide accompanies them at all times. In my own case, I could avoid the […]

Lauren provided a good example with her tour for 2 people (note: prices are likely higher now than in 2012).

My suggestion is to: 1) contact a few more travel agencies to get other price points and 2) let the tour company know what level of comfort you want. For example, when we went off on our private tour after our group tour the initial itinerary had us in 4* hotels, which we didn’t want. We were able to get the price down by reducing the level of hotel, transport and by choosing to pay for our own meals.

Absolutely not! I did a guided tour in 2012 for $1000 for about two weeks (IranLife tour with Key2Persia) including food, hotels, transportation, etc. I prefer to travel alone too, but there was only one other person in the tour, and our guide was a fun young guy. So it didn’t feel restricted or rushed or anything. I highly recommend the Orient Express train, too–it was relatively cheap, and I didn’t have to have a guide during that time :)

It seems the only way I can visit Iran is to Pay $4000 for a tour.. Is this the only way?? I am a US citizen

Great to hear that you had such a good experience traveling in Iran. We did not buy carpets, but a couple of Americans on our trip did and they got through customs without any problems. I believe that they did have receipts in case they were asked, but the price on there was less than what they paid. We returned with gaz nougat candy and didn’t have any issues.
Good luck!
Audrey

I have recently traveled to Iran and it was an amazing experience. Completely shattered any false imagery I had for this country. My question is this. I bought two carpets. One medium sized and one small sized. I also purchased half a kilo of pistachios.and a box of famous antique gaz nougat candy. Will I have problem bringing all of this stuff back to US? Did anyone have similar experience of bringing Iranian goods back to US?

Thanks,

JosephB
