Join us on this guided, 15-day tour of Iran and explore both the natural beauty of the country as well as its cultural heritage. Start your trip from Tehran, the modern-day capital of the country, and travel to Kashan. See the famous Fin Garden, whose landscape principles go all the way back to the ancient Persian civilization.

Continue your journey to Isfahan, the 17th-century capital of the Safavid empire that was, back then, one of the world’s greatest cities – architecturally striking and wealthy beyond imagination. Head for the nearby Rig Jenn Desert, a vast area of sand dunes in Iran's central desert, and enjoy a desert safari.

Get the chance to visit Garmeh, a village located in the Mesr Desert, and learn how people live in one of the most inhospitable places in the world. Stay at a local's house and get the opportunity to learn more about their culture and way of living. See the giant wind towers of Yazd next and travel to Shiraz, probably the most well known of all the ancient Persian cities and home to the tomb of the great Persian poet Hafiz.

End your trip in Tehran with a city sightseeing tour. We will drop you off at Imam Khomeini International Airport according to your flight schedule. for more about this trip, please read the itinerary below.

“Iran was at the top of my bucket list for year—and, in large part due to my tour with Surfiran, it didn't disappoint. From the cosmopolitan streets of Tehran, to the grand plaza of Isfahan and from the "pink mosque" of Shiraz to the rolling dunes of the Mesr Desert, Iran will exceed all your wildest expectations. I chose to add an excursion to the city of Tabriz and the mystical town of Kandovan on to the end of my trip, and it was a worthwhile addition indeed.”

“Surfiran organised a very educational tour to the tea industry of Iran for us. Apart from gaining knowledge about the tea industry for our students and our book, we were welcomed by every single person we met with such friendliness and enthusiasm. Surfiran and its guides did an extraordinary job. We already booked our second tour!”
