Please Note: We are not currently offering any departures to Iran, following a change in the FCO Travel Advice on 10th January 2020.  TransIndus has happily operated tours to Iran for many years, with our clients having greatly enjoyed learning about its rich culture and fascinating history and have repeatedly commented on the warm friendliness of the Iranian locals they've met along the way. We sincerely hope to be able to resume our tours soon and look forward to the day when we can show more of our clients the wonders of Iran. In the interim, TransIndus offers tours to many other countries across the Middle East & Central Asia and we hope one of these other destinations will satisfy your traveller's curiosity. Please do get in touch with our team of travel specialists for further advice.

 

We’re delighted to be able to offer this fascinating two-week trip, which covers all of the
country’s principal sights - including the magnificent Safavid monuments of Isfahan, the former
Zoroastrian capital of Yazd and ruins of ancient Persepolis. In the course of a varied fortnight,
you’ll visit beautiful Persian gardens, admire exquisitely tiled tombs in the desert, and shop for
traditional delicacies in wonderful old bazaars. There will also be ample opportunity to sample
the legendary cuisine and hospitality of a country whose inhabitants are obviously delighted to
be reconnecting with the wider world again after decades of political isolation.
