I enjoyed watching this very much and love to see more. I haven't been back to Iran since I came here and this was definitely a nice piece to see.
Rick Steve's Iran
Great programm and oustanding production. Mr. Steve goes into the heart of the Iranian people, its culture, its geography and its soul. Hopefully there will be more of these educational programms to enlighten the world about the Iranian culture and its people. Thank you Rick
very well done!
Rick Steves does an admirable job navigating the cultural and political minefield that this topic presents. This is truly citizen diplomacy, featuring real conversations with real people, as well as a noble effort to offer insight into the history and culture of Iran. This feels more like a real country than anything I've seen on news programs, which only want to present conflict. Well worth watching!
