Journey through Iran: 16-Day Vacation Package

Historians believe human life existed in Persia around 6000 BC, and many communities had settled on the eastern side of the mountain range Zagros. This tour will offer you the essence of the ancient Persian Empire; most of the towns and sites you will visit are either thousands of years old or have been registered by UNESCO as a heritage site.
