After many years of experience in travelling around the world we know that most tourists travel according to classic itineraries; only professionals and real traveller take the adventurers and travel to untouched and non-touristic areas. In Iran classic routes consist of towns, cities and monuments visited by anyone but you wouldn’t have the chance of being in touch with locals and experience their real way of life. One of the main highlights of Iran in terms of nature can be its deserts. As Iranian deserts were part of the “Silk Road” there are many historical monuments and sites left from that era worth paying a visit. There are many different flora and fauna living in this hot place and many caravanserais still accepting guests and tourists. This tour is NOT only a desert 4x4 tour. We have combined sightseeing in small towns, exploring rural areas and oases.

This tour has been designed to take you away from major touristic cities into the real life of locals. On this trip you will not only see the main attractions advised in guide books but also you will have the chance to visit the historic villages and stay with local people enjoying their homemade food, become familiar with their customs and way of life.
