Starting and ending in Tehran, the "Best Of Iran" tour is a guided adventure trip that takes 11 days. You will travel through Isfahan, Shiraz and Tehran in Iran. "Best Of Iran" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Journey through Iran and experience fascinating Persian culture. There are few places in the world which have a history and culture as rich as this remarkable country, formerly known as Persia. You’ll find a refined society that has been misinterpreted by world press, yet travellers to the country consistently attest that Iran has one of the worlds warmest and most welcoming people. It's history provides endless fascination and an atmosphere that is most definitely relaxed, and certainly enriching. Our journey traces the magnificent legacies of the Persian Empires which will not fail to inspire, yet its the snow clad mountains, vast deserts, oasis towns and spontaneous engagement with the locals that provide surprise at every turn of our diverse itinerary. From the vibrant city of Tehran we fly south to Shiraz, the home of the famous Poets Tombs and to Persepolis, an incredible example of the rule of Achaemenid Empire. Our trip returns to Tehran via Yazd, the second most ancient city in the world and Isfahan, famous for its ancient bridges, mosques, minarets, and tree lined avenues.

“Iran is far more than the amazing ancient ruins of Persepolis dating back 2,500 years, tombs carved into cliffs, exquisite tiled domed ceilings in mosques, beautiful tranquil gardens with water features, elaborately decorated palaces, the carpet museum, national museum, magnificent jewellery museum, superb contemporary art museum and having fun bargaining in the bazaars. Having such a small group (3), plus Saeed our driver guide made it so easy for us to engage with the locals. They would often stop us in the street and ask us where we were from and then welcome us to Iran and also ask if they could photograph us. We were offered bread and fruit by strangers. Sitting and enjoying Persian tea was a very pleasant way to take a break during the day. The locals were very helpful when we were at the railway or using a map to get around. We enjoyed our picnics that were prepared by Saeed consisting of the tastiest tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, bread, tea and fresh fruit. We saw lots of families picnicking. A shop selling freshly squeezed pomegranate juice was very refreshing on a hot day. The word must be getting out about travelling to Iran as a holiday destination, as we saw a few coaches with french and english tourists. We received a lot of negativity from family and friends wanting to know "why Iran", but with World Expeditions telling us we would be safe and have a wonderful cultural experience, which it certainly was. Thank you so much Saeed Ashtiani you looked after us so well.”

“Iran positively defies expectations, even if they are already high, in every way and World Expeditions supplied an open and knowledgeable local guide - historically, religiously and personally - and arranged for key and diverse sights and relaxing hotels for respite along the way.”
