From time-enduring remains of the ancient cities to the regional delicacies cooked up by those who enjoy sharing them – Iran is a destination we hope to experience with you again. When the time is right, we look forward to showing you the best spots for orange blossom tea in Bazaar Vakil, finding the best hand-made traditional sweets in Yazd and trailing under the intricate ceilings of the World Heritage-listed Golestan Palace. Any future decisions to resume operations in Iran will be based on the safety of travellers, staff and local communities.

Iran: Women's Expedition

Manha · Traveled February 2020
Iran is absolutely safe to travel. Highly recommended. The women only expedition allowed us experiences that would not be possible with a mixed gender tour in a country with strict gender separation rules. Our tour leader Nadia, a TEDx talk speaker, was the best tour guide I have had.

Grace · Traveled February 2020
Brilliant trip with a fantastic itinerary that showcases Iran. Nadia is an exceptional trip leader, with even a Lonely Planet credit time her name, whose knowledge of Iran, worldliness to understand what traveller truly want out of a trip and general good nature made the trip one of the best!

Iran: Women's Expedition

Deborah · Traveled November 2019
Iran was amazing, the history and places we visited were all so interesting, but most of all the Iranian people. They were so friendly and welcoming, so happy we were visiting their beautiful country.

Iran: Women's Expedition

Sally · Traveled November 2019
A trip to Iran with our Intrepid tour guide Yasna will blow any negative preconceptions developed by western media and politics apart. It is a fascinating country, a sensory culture and the people are beautiful.

Iran Adventure

Ryan · Traveled November 2019
I loved Iran! Our leader Reyhaneh Ghoroghchian (Reina) was amazing! she was fun, engaging, professional and knowledgeable. The people were so kind saying "welcome to my country" "where are you from?... is it true baby Kangaroos sit in the belly" very funny :-) The homestay was so much fun!, the overnight train was very comfortable! the Caravansarah was very cool! Loved the Safron Ice Cream and the food :-) I'll say it again I loved Iran!
