The Iran in Depth tour starts and ends in Tehran. The Iran in Depth is a city sightseeing tour that takes days taking you through Tehran, Tours to Iran and other destinations in Tours to Iran.

On this three week grand tour of Iran we are welcomed by friendly Iranians as we discover ancient assassin's castles, Zoroastrian fire temples, troglodyte villages, fine Islamic architecture and a rock hewn necropolis. We explore north-west Iran, a rural mountainous paradise rarely visited by tourists where we eat dinner by the Caspian Sea, wander through colourful bazaars and stay with locals. We uncover Persian history at Persepolis, watch a local wrestling show in Yazd and see incredible mosaic art in Isfahan.
