Everest High Passes Trek

We are safely back in the UK after the trip of a lifetime.
The experience for all of us was so powerful, we think it will take quite a while for us to understand what happened and digest it all.

Best of Iran

There are few places in the world which have a history and culture as rich as this remarkable country. You’ll 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.

traveller reviews

Our guide was excellent - because of him we got to experience a wide spectrum of Iranian life and culture; travel in Iran would have been impossible without him. Iran is a wonderful place to visit; it is full of surprises, feels very safe and gives a different perspective on the modern world. Would not have missed it for the world - it was deeply rewarding.
