HIGHLIGHTS
  • Shop for produce in a lively Iranian bazaar, prepare the food alongside local cooks and then feast on a fivecourse meal of ageold secret recipes with your new friends.
  • Enjoy a picnic in one of Iran’s women’sonly parks, one of the few places women can enjoy the sunshine without a hijab.
  • Immerse yourself in rural nomadic life on a beautifully remote homestay with the Qashqai people. Enjoy a meal, sing songs, try on the local dress, and give breadbaking a go.
  • Step inside the fascinating hidden world of an Iranian beauty salon. You’ll see that these are oases for many local women, providing a safe space for them to relax and (literally) let their hair down.

“Our trip was very good for the money. The accommodations were adequate, our guide handled a lot of the details and we had time to explore on our own. Best for people traveling solo or as a couple.”
