Classic tour Iran

During this varied tour through Iran you will get acquainted with the most beautiful cities and villages. With a lot of variation in nature, culture and a surprisingly hospitable population!

After arrival at Tehran IKA airport the tour starts in the capital Tehran. In this impressive metropolis many beautiful palaces and beautiful museums are hidden. After a 2-day stay in Tehran, our driver will take you to a comfortable  journey to Kashan  , Kashan is definitely a delightful conclusion. The ancient Kashan is known for its traditional merchant houses, the Hammam Khan and Fin garden.

After 2 nights, our driver will be waiting at the hotel for the drive to Isfahan . Halfway along the route you will make a stopover in Abyaneh , the picturesque red slate village.

Upon arrival in Isfahan it is a shame to stay in the hotel room for a long time. For example, enjoy a sultry evening stroll along the Khaju bridge. Isfahan is the cultural capital of Iran and had its heyday in the 17th century during King Shah Abbas. From that time you will find many impressive buildings such as the si-o-se pol bridge and the Ali Qapu palace on the second largest city square in the world. The Naqshe Jahan square was once designed as a polo field! Isfahan is perhaps the highlight of the tour.

After 3 nights, our driver will be waiting at the hotel for the drive to Shiraz , also called the gate of Persia. Two and a half thousand years ago, this province of Iran became the center of the vast Persian empire. The ruins of Persepolis (Takhte Jamshid) and the royal tombs of Naqsh-e -Rostam are remnants of this time.  You can visit them with your driver. Modern Shiraz is the liberal city of poets and parks. You can visit Karim Zand castle, Hafez tomb, Eram garden, the Koran gate and the Vakil bazaar for original handmade souvenirs.

From Shiraz you make a long but beautiful drive through the desert landscape to Yazd. On the way there is a stopover in Pasargad near the monument of Cyrus the Great, founder of the Persian Empire. During the continuation of the ride you will visit the desert town Abarkuh with the millennia Cypress, perhaps the oldest tree in the world …

In Yazd , you can enjoy walks through a labyrinth of leme alleys. You can also get acquainted with the Zoroastrian faith, the original religion of Iran. The sacred flame is still burning in the Atashkadeh fire temple. In Yazd time seems to stand still and it is wonderful to stay in a traditional boutique hotel.

After a 2-days stay in Yazd, our driver will take you to the Yazd railway station for a comfortable train journey to Tehran. On board is a restoration and own sleeping section.

This day is free day for departure and our driver will wait you at hotel lobby and would take you to IKA international airport.
