Start and end in Tehran, the Ancient Persia In Depth tour is a guided cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes 13 days. You will travel through Shiraz, Esfahan and Tehran in Iran. Ancient Persia In Depth is a small group tour which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Iran is quite simply an extraordinary country, where visitors are welcomed with open arms by friendly people who have redefined the word ‘hospitality’. The architecture is amazing with breathtaking mosques, stepped hillside villages, cleverly-designed wind towers (badgirs) and impressive structures such as the Zoroastrian Towers of Silence. The country's history is astonishingly rich, and Ancient Persepolis is one of many staggering reminders of this past. The current culture is in many ways a fusion of all the influences; the country’s religion is predominantly Islam (mainly Shiite, but some Iranians are Sunni), although you will probably also encounter Jews, Zoroastrians, Christians and Baha’is along the way. Although Iran is portrayed by some Western media as being ruled by a dour and repressive regime, you will find that it is a land full of warm, lively and friendly people. Join Peregrine for this foray into one of the world’s most fascinating and least-visited countries.

Before booking on this trip we recommend that you read the ‘Safety’ section in the trip notes regarding special safety considerations for Iran trips.

“Walking was tough - an endurance test. Transport of luggage between hotels worked well. Documentation was not very accurate, but way-marking on the paths was good. We felt a sense of achievement on completing the walk.”
