Traveling to Iran with kids- advice needed

Hi,

We are a family of 4 which includes 2 young children. We are thinking of a short trip to Iran- fly into Shiraz and take a tour of Persepolis.

Alternatively, we can fly into Shiraz, visit Persepolis, then drive to Esfahan, spend a day or two and then head to Tehran. Fly out of Tehran. Will this be very hectic with kids?( One of them is 3 years old.)

I still think this is bearable to the children as the road in Iran is mostly good not to bumpy, and the bus (the VIP bus) is very comfortable so they can rest while on the road.

But if you can book a flight to Isfahan it will be more time savvy.

another alternative is you book a private car with driver to take you from Shiraz to Isfahan so you can make a stopover at some places of interest while en route.

If your kids are used on traveling I think they can keep up. As my daughter did while we're in Iran last winter.

Hi!

your alternative choice is very attractive because you will see two more city than Shiraz but please consider the distance between Shiraz and Isfahan is more than 500 km and haven't so much beautiful eyesight,it is just desert. Once I drove between Isfahan and Shiraz and I promise myself it will be my last time,but you can first go to Tehran,after visit of Tehran go to Isfahan by bus,and then after seeing Isfahan go to Shiraz by train,that would be more diverse if you like diversity,and by the way I think if you leave Iran after vising Shiraz you will have a better memory of the whole trip,

hi There

you can take flight from Tehran to Shiraz and Shiraz to Isfahan, and visiting Persepolis when you have accommodation in Shiraz and comeback to fly to Isfahan.

unfortunately there is not train from Shiraz to Isfahan, but there are VIP Buses.

Thanks for your responses.

1) Will we be missing a lot if we don't go to Tehran?

2) if we drive from Shiraz to Esfahan and from Esfahan to Tehran, can we stop somewhere along the way for meals?
