From our experience, Iran is one of the most misunderstood countries on earth and it is our mission to dispel many of the clichéd preconceptions as we travel through this fascinating country – from the splendours of Shiraz to the nomadic tribes of the Zagros Mountains – enjoying the fabled Iranian hospitality along the way.
Throughout history Iran, or Persia as it was once called, has loomed large in world history, as indeed it does today. For some, highlights of this trip may include the ancient ruins of Persepolis, the magnificent tile-work of Esfahan’s mosques or the medieval wind-towers of Yazd; for others it may be the quiet vehicle-free village streets of Abyaneh, the rural tranquillity of Faraghe or the Grand Bazaar of Tehran. However, for all an undoubted highlight will be having the chance to meet and chat with local Iranians who, as a people, rank amongst the most well-educated and outward-looking on the planet.
This is an outstanding trip which offers a great insight into the country with a perfect blend of both culture and adventure.

Wear socks when visiting mosques; whilst it is customary to remove your shoes on entry, it is disrespectful to enter in bare feet.
