Private Iran Tours and Some of its advantages
You are the travel planner and designer
In a private tour you can design you itinerary based on your interest, time and previous studies and give your plan to your guide. The guide will absolutely help you make some practical changes but in general it is you who decides. There is nothing fixed before your confirmation.
You choose where to sleep and where to eat
In group tour everything is fixed already; your hotel, your restaurants, timing etc. Maybe a very luxurious 5 star hotel is booked for you. very good! But you may prefer to spend the night in a very quiet traditional hostel. It is in a private tour that you can choose your accommodation and your guide is your advisor.
What do you think about having Felafel in a small shop in older quarters? Enjoyable…right? Can you experience that in a group tour when a number of t your travel mates prefer eating somewhere else?
Can you find a good shop in the turns and twists of old quarters? Again a private guide in a private tour will be helpful. Just tell your about your wish and he will make it for you just like magic trick!
Additional activities according to your interests
Travel to Iran means a long journey in history and culture so most of the tours including the group tours merely focus on the historical sites.
But you as an individual traveler may be interested in some other activities to experience something new. For example, a live concert is one of the activities which can be included to Iran Tourism.
If you do not go to a live traditional Iranian concert while you are here, where else in the world can you do that? Or if you have a regular program to go to the gym and you do not want to miss it during your trip, how can you do it while you are in a group tour? The group is moving and you should follow.
You’ll miss the travel plan if you go to the gym and vice versa. But in a private tour, it is you who decides and your guide will take you a gym with the best facilities and time table that matches your time limitations.

Having stops on the way to relax or do anything
When you are traveling between cities in Iran sometimes you have a more than 4 hour drive to get to your next destination. It might happen that you as a tourist are very impressed by some sceneries along the road, some nomadic families living by the road and so on.
Or many travelers do not like non-stop drive or need a cup of coffee every two hours or have a break to relax and stretch their bodies. In a private tour, you can simply ask for a stop at any place to enjoy the sceneries, take some photos or relax.
Is it possible in a group tour with people with different tastes and preferences? Of course NO. But in a private tour, you take your time, change your plan and follow your own desires and tastes without bothering others and without being bothered.
Flexibility of the plan
In the group tour, everything is the same for you and your travel mates and even for those who have traveled package holiday to Iran in the past. No attention is paid to your interests. Sometimes even during your trip (not before that), you change your mind and like to have some changes in your plan.
For instance, you may prefer to have one day more in a city or have a small break after lunch in your hotel. Any changes are possible but of course in a private tour not in group ones.
Better shopping experiences
While traveling, shopping is one of the most enjoyable activities specially buying those objects that you cannot find in your own country. Definitely you need help from your guide in shopping as well.
Usually in group tours limited time is allocated to shopping and if you are looking for something special you should do it on your own in your free time with no guide. Moreover, if you are really interested in shopping you may miss lots of sites that the group has in its travel plan.
But while you are on a private tour, your guide could change the plan, go to the market with you and help you with your shopping. Your private guise also can take you to the best place where you can find your favorite object. This way you will be satisfied with your shopping, you don’t miss a part of the plan, also you save time and probably money.
