Trip Report Trip Report - Iran, Syria, and Jordan

Jump to last reply

Just got back from a 6-week trip to the Mideast, which included 18 days in Iran with a friend, then another 12 days in Syria and 8 days in Jordan on my own as a single female. It was an amazing experience, very highly recommended and I can assure you that I felt very safe travelling solo. I used the Gasht Tour agency - www.gashttour.com - to arrange the Iran part (required for Americans) and then did Syria and Jordan independently. Although we had to use a tour agency we incorporated a lot of free time into our itinerary and in no way felt like we needed to have a "minder" 24/7.

Happy to answer any questions about hotels, logistics, costs, etc. since I didn't get into that level of detail in my blog. Enjoy!

PS - Maxwell, if you're reading this, I read your trip report EXTENSIVELY while doing my trip planning and used it to carefully manage our time with Abbas in Iran. It was so useful, thanks again for taking the time to write it. Fortunately Abbas was only our guide for the Shiraz/Persepolis portion, but boy did he grate on our nerves after a while. I think Gasht Tours must have gotten a lot of similar feedback on him because he seemed quite OK leaving us on our own, which was already factored into our "program".
