A little bit about Vinay:
Vinay, from the United States and 46 years old, decided to visit Iran in April 2022 with his wife and his three kids (12, 11, and 3 years old). So he contacted us in March in order to start planning for his desired itinerary. He was interested in visiting the most important cities such as Tehran, Shiraz, Isfahan, and Yazd in a luxury private-tour style. Here is a summary of the preferences he had:
- Cultural and Historical tour of Iran.
- Luxury hotels.
- Private driver-guide and a van for the entire duration of his trip.
- Staying in accommodations where vegetarian options for food is available.
What we did for Vinay:
After consulting with him through email, and considering the fact that he had three small kids with him we tried to design his plan in a way so that they can cover all the well-known tourist attractions during their vacation, and also have enough time to relax and unwind so that kids will enjoy as well.
