This Iran’s cultural-historical tour is proper for those who are interested in Ancient Persia history and would like a visit to the most famous touristic sites of Iran. The journey will cover main world heritage sites of Iran through the famous Classic Route of Iran which starts from Tehran towards Shiraz. The trip includes visiting 7 Iranian UNESCO sites along 11 tentative ones which are on the list of the tentative UNESCO sites. Average driving mileage would be around 1000 miles (~1600 km), starting from IKA airport to Tehran Capital and passing through Qom, Kashan, Abyaneh village, Esfahan, Kuhpayeh, Naiin, Meybod, Chak chak (Zoroastrian fire temple), Yazd, Pasargadae, Persepolis and Shiraz. From there we will arrange a flight back to Tehran to return back to your home country. We have considered different lodging which are a combination of standard hotels, traditional Persian hotels and historical renovated caravanserai. You will have special walking tours through historical part of motioned city downtowns as well as night walks through busy spots in the cities to make you more familiar with Persian Culture. The tour has no physical activity and would be ideal for those with a general fitness level. There is an optional walking tour through Abyaneh historical village and its old narrow alleys to the historical Zoroastrian temple which takes a few hours (15 km). You also cross through Dasht-e Kavir desert, which is between Esfahan and Yazd and depending on your travel time you can have a stop on the way to observe the desert and visit a couple of attractions in the central desert of Iran.

  1. This classic Iran trip is doable in the entire of the year. The best season recommended by us is from beginning of April to mid-May and from the end of September till the end of November.
  2. We don’t recommend traveling from 20th of March to 5th of April as it’s the long holiday of Persian New Year in Iran.
  3. If you have more than 12 days of holiday and you are interested in having some kind of activity along this trip, we have designed plenty of short activity trips (hiking, biking, skiing and Persian cooking adventures) that can be added to your trip. For more information please mention your interest and your travel time during the sending of your inquiry.
