This tour highlights the religious sites of the faiths that have co-existed over the centuries in Persia. Firstly there was the great Zoroastrian civilisation and then, with the Arab Conquest, came Islam. All throughout this time the Christians, Jews and the mystic Sufis and Dervishes have maintained important pilgrimage sites too.
As well as visiting the major highlights of Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz and Persepolis this tour includes visits to such extraordinary sights as the troglodyte village of Kandovan - thought to be the SITE of the Garden of Eden, Shush – one of the oldest cities in the world dating back six thousand years, the tombs of Esther and Mordecai in Hamedan, and Takht-e-Soleiman (Throne of Solomon).Click for tour details

Either as a one-off trip or as an add on to an existing itinerary Iran isn’t the first place that comes to mind when planning your next ski trip or a winter break to soak up the sunshine.
However, if you are planning to travel to Iran between November and March you may want to build either or both of these activities onto your itinerary. We can arrange a ski trip to the resorts of Dizin
high in the Alborz mountains.Click for tour details
This seven day trip provides the unique opportunity to visit an area largely untouched by twenty first century, riding through remote areas and small village settlements, still without electricity or road access.
The riding route is varied, through rugged foothills parallel to the Zagros Mountains, with steep uphill & downhill tracks, through deep gorges, crossing the winding river of Rood Shoor (or Salty River) which flows into Karoon, one of the most important rivers in Iran. This area is the “winter quarters” of the Bakhtiari Nomads, who reside around Isfahan province in Central Iran for the rest of the year.
