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.

Mark's review for another Surfiran tour
“I took 9-Day Iranian Culture and Heritage Small Group Tour from April 27th through May 5th 2018 with Surfiran tour company. I spend 2 extra days in Tehran before the tour. Complimentary scenic day tour on private train to Alborz mountains north of Tehran is included in every tour with Surfiran. I also visited Shiraz, Persepolis, Yazd, Isfahan, Kashan and small cities in between. I was amazed by magnificent architectural and cultural heritage of Iran, and its beautiful nature and kind people. As US citizen I felt very comfortable in Iran all the time during my tour. Iranian people which I met treated me extremely warm and friendly. I stayed in good quality hotels in the center of visited cities, breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. On recommendation of my guide Hossein I tried different cuisine in authentic Persian restaurants. Hossein provided exceptional information about culture and history, always tried to show something unique and interesting. I am planning to return to Iran at a later time to visit other parts of the country.”

Jason's review for another Surfiran tour
“I worked a lot with SurfIran before my trip on developing a custom itinerary. It worked out perfectly. We visited the historic sites and the tour guide, Ahmad, was full of knowledge about everything. We also ate at delicious restaurants and got a taste of everyday life in the cities. I had an amazing time wish I could do it all over again.”
