On the 3rd day of your tour, we have a bit of a surprise for you, too. If you wish, we can arrange for you to stay with a local family (i.e., one of our family members) who will welcome you to an eco-friendly and innovative organic lifestyle retreat about the traditional culture of the local heritage. You will enjoy homemade meals, mingling with the locals, and hearing their life stories in a conventional Persian way. If you don’t want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, let us know when booking this tour.
In the morning, you will be transferred to visit Iran’s most famous historical sites: Persepolis and Pasargadae (also two UNESCO World Heritage sites).

After Pasargadae, you will visit the great Persepolis—the earliest remains of Persepolis date back to 515 BCE. As a symbol of the Achaemenid dynasty, this place was burned by Alexander. The entrance of this ancient city is The Gate of All Nations, so you are welcomed to this city with every nationality you have. The Apadana Palace, The Throne Hall and the tombs of Kings are among many other places and structures you can see in Persepolis.
