I'm in the process of booking onto the Persian Explorer starting on 4 June, but am a bit concerned that it will be really hot (expecially as I know I have to cover up, hair and all). How hot is it likely to be, and are we mostly in air conditioned buses and hotels?
Also I've been reading about the religious holiday on 4 June when it sounds as though everything shuts down for a few days. How will this effect the tour, restaurants, transport from the airport etc.
I'd also be really keen to hear from someone who has been on this tour - sounds a fascinating place to visit, but I'm still not quite sure!
