This intense 2-week journey reveals the secrets of Iran and is crammed with all the activities and energy you crave. Iran is famed for its ancient past but its present is pretty darn compelling, too.

The man-made and natural wonders of Persepolis and the central desert have been drawing travelers here for ages, but the grandeur of Iran has remained a secret known only to the boldest of thrill-seekers. During this amazing cultural-natural thirteen-day tour, you will have the opportunity to explore the classic route of Iran (which is a must for every first-time visitor) plus the central deserts.

After arriving in Tehran, we get a domestic flight to the historic city of Shiraz were used to be the capital of the country for a while in the old times. Exploring the city and its suburbs we will keep on the trip to the historic city of Yazd with its world-known landscape as the city of wind-towers and mud-brick homes.

On the way from Yazd to Isfahan, we will spend two nights in a local house in the central desert of Iran to experience desert activities like camel riding and watching the stars in the clear sky at night. Another thing that is famous among the tourists spending time in the desert is photography. After our desert experience, we will continue to the city of mosques and handicrafts bazaar, Isfahan.

After spending two memorable days in Isfahan, we will drive to Tehran en-route to visiting the red village of Abyaneh and its unique culture. The last stop will be the Tehran metropolitan. As the capital of the country, Tehran is the most populous and modern with lots of recent palaces and museums.

The tour finishes by transferring to the International Imam Khomeini Airport.
