Iran

Iran is rich in history and has established a great civilisation over thousands of years. There are many amazing monuments that you won’t want to miss visiting. The landscapes are stunning as well and so varied. From subtropical dense forests to beautiful plains, rugged mountains and two of biggest deserts in the world are in Central and Eastern Iran. Welcome to the hidden world of Iran. Travel through this fascinating country to discover refined Islamic cities, colourful bazaars, ancient Persian ruins, fascinating nomads, and shimmering deserts.

Ancient towns that date back to the Silk Road era, elaborate mosques that beam out the evocative call to prayer and modern cities where fashion-conscious youth rub shoulders with conservative elders – it’s time to demystify the misconceptions about Iran! Exquisite palaces, domed mosques, brilliant bazaars and gracious people all make Iran a true travel gem.

Whether relaxing in a teahouse in Tehran or breaking bread with nomads on the harsh Iranian plateau, the warmth and hospitality of the Iranian people is endearing and the profound beauty of their land is mesmerising. But don’t believe us… come and experience the splendour of Iran yourself!

""We absolutely loved Iran. Mehdi was an excellent guide and he would highly recommend him. The hotels were good, we felt safe and the way the itinerary was put together was fabulous.We particularly enjoyed being up in the north. I had a wonderful 80th birthday!"" — Mr and Mrs Eriksen, Adelaide, October 2019

"Our guide, Eli - professional, engaged in a personal, caring manner, at all times attended to our needs, provided in-depth information about the sites we visited, if she could not answer a question she would find the information for us. Eli was the most informative, caring and attentive guide we have experienced on our many travels. Abbas our driver – careful and defensive driver, at all times willing to help us through congested traffic and pick us up where convenient for us, when we stopped for a break would fire up his gas burner and make us an espresso, small kindness from Abbas made our trip even more enjoyable. Abbas kept the car in immaculate condition and made sure we had cold water for our travels. The itinerary enabled us to see the main sites and even though we travelled long distances, the time was broken up by visiting sites along the way. The accommodation was delightful and we were able to experience small hotels (some of which had been grand houses or caravanserai). The food was delicious and Eli accompanied each night to a select restaurant. " — Mrs McMahon and Mrs Wells, Canberra, October 2019

"We had a wonderful 2 months in Iran, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan! Our guides were all excellent and we enjoyed our time with them.Our Iranian guide was excellent 10/10. We both loved Iran. The history of the 9 countries was amazing and don't think we will ever completely understand it all. Needed lots of homework! The people, the food, the sites, hotels were really good and only a couple of cultural hiccups that were easily fixed locally. Thank you for arranging. " — Vivienne and Trish, Canberra, October 2019

"Iran was awesome and our female guide Mished was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the train and sights. We felt totally safe. " — Jennifer and Karin, Melbourne, September 2019

"We felt totally safe in Iran and loved the Islamic art, mosaics, mirrored rooms, gardens, bridges in Esfahan and were lucky to enjoy a cultural experience of memorial parades in Iran.
