Iran is the crown jewel of the Middle East. This country is a treasure trove of architectural wonder, with its glorious Islamic mosques, gardens, and palaces. History's biggest empires left their mark here. The Mongols under Ghengis Khan, the Macedonians under Alexander the Great, and the Persians under King Xerxes have all been throughout present-day Iran, and their influence is everywhere. Above all the history and architecture is the Iranian people. Hospitality to strangers is the norm in this great nation. Any traveller willing to open their heart to Iran will enter as a stranger and leave as a friend—precisely what the Iranian people would want.
Tehran, the enchanting capital nestled by the Alborz Mountains, is the start of this tour. Prepare to see a thriving cultural and economic heartland with no Western influence. There isn't a single Mcdonald's anywhere in the country! You will also visit the Fin Garden and the Abbasian House in Kashan. Two overnight stays in Esfahan will give you time to explore the UNESCO site of Imam Square, as well as Ali Qapu palace and Imam Mosque. A drive south, and you'll be in Yazd: the 5,000-year-old city with endless architecture, temples, and gardens that'll leave you breathless. Let's not forget Persepolis, another UNESCO site and the former capital of the Persian Empire. These are just some of the rich experiences awaiting you on our seven-night tour of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
