Could Iran be the friendliest country on earth? This land of ancient civilizations, aesthetic beauty and exquisite architecture; where mosques, palaces and mansions stand proud; where history gazes down upon you in the palaces of Isfahan; where poetry lives in the gardens of Kashan and where the people are the most welcoming, warmhearted you'll ever meet. Yet for women travel to Iran can be daunting. We see the newscasts, we hear the stories about repression of women... This women's-only tour aims to show you a side of Iran otherwise off-limits to mixed-gender groups. Step into the women's-only world of a beauty parlour, walk through a park only women can go and travel on women-only transportation. Everywhere you go you will meet Iranian women ready to share their stories and their passions, fascinating women of all ages, creeds and political persuasions.
