The ideas of Iran Ancient Trail and Alongside Ancient Persia tours was created when we thought that most of the tours designed for travelers visiting Iran are for major touristic cities of Tehran, Esfahan, Shiraz, Yazd and Kashan. In such tours, tourists have only the opportunity to see and visit some very well-known historic places and stay in well-known hotels. During these routine tours travelers miss out the opportunity of visiting people, associating with them and knowing their divers culture and civilization left from thousands of years ago which is the main attraction of Iran.
We have decided to offer a journey completely different to those of regular ones.
