Introduction

Iran is one of the emerging places of ancient human civilizations. The geographical diversity in this vast country hasn’t prevented humans from forming civilizations everywhere. From Hyrcanian forests and verdurous plains to tall mountains and dry deserts, life is seen all over Iran. Iranians have also managed to adapt to life in the deserts comprising ¼ of the country. Their clever architecture style, Qanats, and wind towers are interesting things seen in the central part of Iran. This package is designed for those looking for a bit of adventure alongside visiting top cultural destinations in the country. During this Iran trip, you’ll learn about the rich culture and the ancient history of this magnificent country and enjoy spending time in the wondrous deserts. The best time for this Iran tour is in autumn and winter.
The trip starts from Tehran, the capital of Iran, where we’ll learn about the last 250 years of the history of the country. Then we’ll visit Kashan, the city of art and rose water, where you can experience staying at a boutique hotel. We’ll also spend some time in the deserts surrounding Kashan. Our next stop is Isfahan, known as the cultural and historical capital of Iran. This city includes many remarkable historical monuments, many of which are UNESCO world heritage sites. After visiting Isfahan, we’ll spend a few days exploring the most amazing desert areas in Iran and visiting attractions such as villages, sand dunes, and lakes. After our memorable adventure in the deserts, we’ll head to Yazd and visit the city of wind towers. The old part of Yazd is a UNESCO world heritage site due to its unique structure. This city also has multiple working fire temples. We’ll visit Persepolis and Pasargadae on our way to Shiraz. Dating back to almost 3000 years ago, these ancient ruins are one of the highlights of our tour. Our last destination is Shiraz, the city of poetry, arts, and wine. We’ll spend our last day visiting significant historical monuments and beautiful gardens in Shiraz.

IRAN CULTURAL TOUR FAQ

Iran Travel Experts are ready to answer your questions

Generally, April and May are the best months for traveling to Iran. The second high season period for traveling to Iran is from September to mid-November. It’s recommended to book your Iran tour 3 to 6 months in advance if you want to travel to Iran during the high season. This way, you’ll have various choices for hotels and flights and can get an early bird discount. For those interested in Iran trekking tours and mountain climbing in Iran, the best time  is during summer. The weather is rather hot at this time of the year (30-35 degrees); however, this won’t be a problem as vehicles and hotels are equipped with air conditioner. You can combine an adventurous Iran trekking tour with an interesting cultural tour. 

The high season for visiting Iran depends on the type of Iran tour you choose. The best time for Iran cultural/ historical tours is during April and May. However, from September to mid-November is also a great time for traveling to Iran. On the other hand, if you choose one of the Iran trekking tours, your trip must be in summer. The high season for Iran desert tours is from March to mid-May and in October and December. Furthermore, the skiing season in Iran begins in December and ends in April. You can also combine trekking tours with Iran cultural tour packages during summer. Our experts at Cheetah-Adventures will help you plan an enjoyable Iran trip and choose the best Iran destinations. Note that hotels get fully booked quickly during the high season so it’s best to book your Iran tour 3 to 6 months in advance to have more options and get an early bird discount. 

Yes. Iran is a generally safe country for travelers. In addition, a trip to Iran can be entertaining for all members of the family due to its various attractions and things to do. Read our Iran Safety article for more information.

Yes. Our Iran private tours can be altered based on your preferences. You only need to mention the desired changes in the comment section when booking your Iran tour. Our experts will contact you later and ask for the details. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change the travel itinerary for Iran group tours except for minor changes. 

Your accommodation will be in the form of bed and breakfast twin or double rooms at 3-star and 4-star hotels during all Iran cultural tours. We’ll inform you of the best options available on your tour date. You’ll have both the option of a traditional boutique hotel and a normal one in some cities that you can choose from. 

Each traveler may prefer one of these types of accommodation according to his/her habits and personality features. However, we recommend boutique hotels (traditional hotel) if they are available so that you’ll be able to experience the atmosphere of a traditional Iranian hotel as well as having access to modern facilities.

All Iran cultural tour packages offered by Cheetah-Adventures Iranian tour operator include accommodation, entrance fees and transportation. You may need 10 -20 euros daily for food, if your Iran tour package isn’t full-board. The amount of money you’ll need for buying souvenirs depends on your shopping habits.

An Iran small group tour normally consists of less than 10 people. You can book an Iran private tour package with the number of your companions. Larger group tours can be perfectly performed by increasing the number of tour guides and assistants. In this case, a Persian tour guide will be designated to the tour for each 4 people for safety measures. Cheetah-Adventures have successfully performed tours with more than 20 people.
