"Iran is safe. The crime levels are low. There are things like earthquakes to watch out for, but that’s comparable to the risk in many parts of the world."

Joan Torres, from againstthecompass

"Iran is safe. Like in any other country, however, there are, of course, some small threats but the good news is that these tiny dangers are not particular from Iran. "

Jessie, from jessieonajourney

Silvia, from heartmybackpack

"I’ll admit I was a bit nervous when I first arrived in Iran – as I am when traveling solo to any new country – but the warmth and hospitality of the locals quickly put me at ease."
