Iran

Iran, formerly the seat of the Persian Empire, is a relatively undiscovered and often misunderstood country. The second largest country in the Middle East and heir to one of the world’s oldest civilisations – it is a land saturated with colour, bustling bazaars, intricate architecture and ancient skeletons from a rich and complex history. With the easing of sanctions, gradual restoration of relations with the west and the reopening of the British Embassy in Tehran, such strong endorsements mean Iran is fast becoming the hottest must-see destination. Our tailor-made private journeys through Iran will ensure you discover the very best bits of this vast country - from palaces to ruins and museums to traditional teahouses. Throughout your journey you will be constantly dazzled by the beauty as well as encountering some irresistibly kind and endlessly welcoming people.
