OVERVIEW TOUR

13 Nights-14 Days in Tehran, Hamedan, Khuzestan, Fars, Yazd, Isfahan
Available in all months, especially from December to May due to a better climate

        – Visiting 50 historical sites only in 14 days!

It is a trip full of surprises in Iran, making you witness the residues of Persia, regarding its Empires, religion, and architecture. Except for international flights, we will be on the roads and drive to the destinations, so that we do not miss any significant attraction. Tehran is the embodiment of Qajar dynasty and Hamedan, Ahvaz, (and Shush, Ize and Shustar on the way) are home to Ancient Persia. Qazvin, Isfahan, and Shiraz are also home to other great and important dynasties: Safavid and Zand dynasties.

       -From Safavids to mythology- architecture, reliefs, and handicrafts

After Tehran we reach Qazvin, the first capital of Safavids. Hamedan is our next destination, where you will learn the rituals of pottery, ant art akin to poetry and mysticism in Iran. After eating a perfect Dizi in Lalehjin, we will pay a visit to an important Achaemenids’ site. Shahrekord, the roof of Iran, is our next destination which will enliven the myths of Shahnama (the most important Persian epic poetry) before you.

 

  • A History Dating Back to 1250 BC!

 

Passing Ize, an Elamites city, we will arrive Susa, and Shushtar, the two most important reasons for this trip. In Susa lies the great Tchogha Zanbil Ziggurat, dating back to 3400 years ago! Shushtar has a stunning watermill, a mechanism belonging to Achaemenids.

 

  • Sassanids and Achaemenids

 

Bishapur, a Sassanid residue awaits you in this trip. After that, Shiraz, the city of poetry and wine is where we will stay and visit the tombs of its great poets. In line with the purpose of this trip, Persepolis and Pasargadae will be the cups of tea: the great embodiments of Achaemenids and Sassanids.

 

  • The City of Zarathustrianism and Islam

 

Yazd is the next destination, home to the greatest wind catchers in the world. ؛Faloude؛, a Yazdian sweat, will cool you in this city of soil, adobe and heat (the reason behind the wind catchers). On the way to our last destination, Isfahan, you will witness an old Zarathustrian temple, called Chak Chak. and finally, Isfahan: home to the beauties of Sufism and mysticism- Naghsh-e Jahan, that could be the sole reason for any journey to Iran!
