Join a small group of travellers on this short tour of Iran's cultural, historical and architectural highlights. Take in the cities with their museums, mosques and madrassahs through the day and stroll the squares, gardens and riversides in the evenings as the locals do, meeting friendly faces along the way.
From the hectic and bustling streets of the nation's modern capital of Tehran head to Kashan and explore the old city before arriving in Isfahan - to many the most beautiful city in Iran and stroll the immense square and across the bridges. The desert city of Yazd with its skyline of wind towers reaching in to the sky cooling the inhabitants is your next destination before arriving in the south - busy Shiraz with its pockets of calm in peaceful gardens and of course the monumental city of Persepolis.
Travelling in a small coach staying in small historic hotels, this tour will take you to the sights but also introduce you to the people of Iran, provide guided sightseeing but also give you time to wander and sip tea in the old cities and of course experience the amazing Persian cuisine.
