A GoNOMAD Photo Gallery

Shiraz, Esfahan and Tehran

GoNOMAD Editor Max Hartshorne joined a historic delegation of journalists and tour operators in November 2008 when the Islamic Republic issued their first diplomatic visas to Americans in 30 years, allowing the group to come and meet many Iranian Tour operators and tourism officials. These photos were taken during the excursions to Shiraz and Esfahan, and later in Tehran.
