It is better to stay 2 days in isfahan instead going to kashan and come back to Isfahan again .

You need to change something about kermanshah sightseeing . In some places it makes sense to rent a car .

Take a car from kermanshah to hamedan . On way you can see Bistun and kangavar . You save one day . And you will also have time to see hamedan or see alisadr cave .

Let me start from the begging,

- Ahvaz : Unfortunately, I've never been there. But recently this city is experiencing severe air pollution because of tiny sands coming from Iraq deserts. I am not sure whether Susa and Shustar are really worth it. Make sure you do a good research about this city.

- Shiraz , Kerman and Yazd : are perfect. no more no less.

- Isfahan : As april5p said above, you dont need to spend one night in Kashan.

Take morning bus to Kashan and come back to Isfahan at night. Isfahan takes three days.

- Kermanshah and Hamedan : You can do the same. I think you can handle Kermanshah (the city itself) in 14 hours. Stay in Hamedan. It is only 2-hour drive from Hamedan to Kermanshan and you can stop by Kangavar.

- Tabriz : This part of your plan sounds fine. Kandovan is awesome, dont miss it.

- Rasht : Rasht takes only coupe of hours to explore. Instead of Rasht, try to find a place in Masouleh (which is less than one hour drive from Rasht) and stay there for a night. It is a really interesting village. You can also have a short hike in the mountains if you like.

Try to take overnight buses so you will make the most of your daytime. For bus lines, "Royal Safar" is the best, or you can ask for any bus line with VIP services (Buses which have three seats in each row). They are very comfortable to sleep over nights.

You should already have done this trip. If not, please let me know to give you professional advise. I was tour guide for last few years and like to help people to visit mein Land (my country) and see as much as they can (according to their preferences and flexibility) and as cheap as possible.

Wish you a nice time,
