Description

For the modern adventure traveller few destinations can match Iran for sheer fascination. Geographically and culturally Iran is the crossroads between Arabia, Central Asia and South Asia but offers something entirely different with its preserved splendours and treasures, architecture and archaeology from its rich and complex Persian history.

Iran's isolation in modern times has added to its intrigue and mystery. Not that Iran's heart was ever closed to the traveler. Since Persian times, it has been famous for its hospitality, and modern travellers willing to get behind the veil of international politics have found a country that is open, generous and very welcoming. In its drive for openness the Iranian government recently announced that it is thinking big and aims to attract 25 million tourists by 2025. So come with us early, and avoid the crowds!

We offer tailor made trips with 4 to 5 star accommodation for small groups (2-6) in comfortable 4x4 vehicles with an Iranian/UK based operator and English speaking guides.

Your journey is long but fascinating and comfortable through extraordinary and varied landscapes across desert and mountains with first class vehicles.
