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!

Rich in history, culture, diverse landscapes and religions (yes, it’s called the Islamic Republic of Iran and follow Shi’a Islam but has proud Zoroastrian, Christian Armenian, Sunni Muslim and Jewish communities). Populated by friendly family-oriented people and completely safe. Iran should be on everyone's bucket list!" — Mr and Mrs Behardien, Ramsgate NSW, September 2018

"I had an amazing time on my tour in Iran! The people, especially the women interestingly enough, were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. They loved having tourists come to their country and the atmosphere was not at all oppressive or dangerous. I actually miss being over there, I made friends and still keep in touch with people. Thanks for all your help with organizing the tour, and answering all my questions. Everything went smoothly." — Maria, Adelaide, April 2018

"No sign of any demonstrations- the guides nor any drivers have seen any - just media hype. We feel very safe, our guide is fantastic- loving every day in this fabulous country. Western toilets everywhere, hotels are great. Thank you for organising our private tour. We are both loving it in Iran. " — Mrs Spanos and Ms Fischer, Sydney, January 2018

"Davood is a master guide. He is a guide's guide. Physically, mentally and spiritually the 11 day tour he conducted for my wife and me was fulfilling and rewarding. He kept us well fed and paced the long drives from Shiraz though Bishapur, Persepolis, Pasagardae, Isfahan, Kashan and Teheran, with coffee and snacks laid out on the roadside in unique spots and memorable locations. It wasn't just the palaces, the mosques, the shrines, the museums and the archaeological sites that he took us to but it was the enthusiasm and resilience that he brought to the tour. His care and concern for us showed he respected us as individuals. Moreover while his preparations and knowledge of each site was extensive and his English most precise he also was open to our perspectives. Davood clearly loves Iran and his love was infectious. Iran and all its glorious culture now occupies a central place in our hearts." — Mr and Mrs Davidson, Sydney, April 2017

The most memorable experiences were of the warm, friendly, interested and welcoming Iranians combined with the historic remains of places such as Persepolis and the old bazaars." — John & Monica, Monavale , May 2016
