Journey Highlights

This unique journey reveals why Iran is widely regarded as one of the most cultured nations on earth with a 5,000-year-old history and some of the world’s most extraordinary ancient sights like the ruined cities of Persepolis and Pasargadae. Years of isolation have given the country a certain mystique and discerning travellers are rewarded with the opportunity of seeing a destination on the cusp of change. Iran’s cities are vibrant, full of atmospheric teahouses, bustling bazaars and beautifully tiled mosques. It has a rich textile heritage, a flavoursome cuisine and its desert landscapes are eerily beautiful. Above all, though, you’ll be mesmerised by the Iranian people who are warm and welcoming, eager to share their views and their beautiful homeland.
