To say Iran is misunderstood would not be an understatement. However, for many centuries Iran and its people have welcome travellers as honoured guests, and today is no different. The chance to meet and engage in interesting conversations with the well educated and world knowledgable local people is often a highlight for any traveller to Iran. Absorb the history of the ancient ruins of Persepolis, the magnificent tile-work of Esfahan’s mosques and the medieval wind-towers of Yazd. Shop in the bustling Grand Bazaar of Tehran or retreat to it may be the quiet vehicle-free village streets of Abyaneh and the rural tranquillity of Faraghe. Iran is a fascinating country and this great introductory trip will leave you wanting to return.
