Overland Track

The knowledge of the guides was brilliant and really made the trip a great success. The effort they put into everything from our safety to dessert was amazing - I am very impressed. This walk was above and beyond all of my expectations!

Best of Iran

There are few places in the world which have a history and culture as rich as this remarkable country. Youíll find a refined society that has been misinterpreted by world press - our travellers consistently attest that Iran has some of the world's warmest and most welcoming people. Its history provides endless fascination and an atmosphere that is most definitely relaxed, and certainly enriching. Our journey traces the magnificent legacies of the Persian Empires which will not fail to inspire, yet it is the snow clad mountains, vast deserts, oasis towns and spontaneous engagement with the locals that provide surprise at every turn. From the vibrant city of Tehran we fly south to Shiraz, the home of the famous Poets Tombs and to Persepolis, an incredible example of the rule of the Achaemenid Empire. Our trip returns to Tehran via Yazd, the second most ancient city in the world and Isfahan, famous for its ancient bridges, mosques, minarets, and tree lined avenues.
