Private Tour




Among the most interesting experiences of a desert tour in Iran, we can mention camel riding and stargazing activities. During this two-day tour in the central desert of Iran, we will have the chance to do both along with exploring the breathtaking sand dunes of the desert, visiting the natural Salk Lake of the neighborhood, spending some time in the historic caravanserais dating back to 19th century. We will have quite a good time to spend a night in the central desert and bring back home unforgettable memories with us.

The tour starts from Kashan, moving toward Aran O Bidgol where we will see Maranjab Caravanserai and get our camels to have our camel trekking in the desert. Camping in the desert over the night will give us a great opportunity to enjoy the starry night of the sky. The next day is time to return to our starting point.


  • Amazing landscapes of the sand dunes

Iran experience

One of the most unforgettable experiences we had during our Iran trip. We had the camel ride for a few hours everyday right before sunset. The camels were clean and calm. The staff offered to take photos of us on the camels with our own phone. The bbq dinner was also nice and we were able to enjoy belly dance and fire performance during the dinner. We highly recommend this trip to people visiting Iran.

Maranjab desert

Tour title is not presenting the whole story. the good part of this tour was that we received much more than we expected. we thought is only a camel riding tour but fortunately the tour was included some other lovely experiences and facilities like camping in desert. please read thoroughly the tour descriptions before booking.

Camel riding Iran

Tour was good. Pick up and drop off was smooth. The tour itself is very family friendly - both my 4+yr son and my 50+ mother are able to enjoy it! Camel ride was the highlight for us of course, the performance was also nice. Tour guy was very friendly too. Highly recommended tour for family
