For lunch, we will go to Darband. Darband is an old mountainous village in Shemiran. This is 1700 meters above the sea level and is one of the main starting routes taken by mountaineers for reaching the central Alborz Range.

Darband boasts a multitude of restaurants situated along the hillside, attracting residents of Tehran who visit the area to relax and enjoy their leisure time.

Then, we will walk around the Tehran Grand Bazaar. The second largest Bazaar in Iran after Tabriz.

In the afternoon, we will visit the National Museum of Iran, where we can find fabulous historical items from 5000 BC to the advent of Islam in Iran which shows a brief history of our land.

we’ll have time to explore and shop in the bustling Vakil Bazaar, home to hundreds of stores, beautiful courtyards, and even an ancient caravanserai (Saray-e Moshir). Besides the bazaar, we will also visit the famous Traditional Vakil Mosque—one of the most beautiful mosques from the Zand dynasty.

  • Included Meals: Breakfast

After breakfast, we will drive to the Legendary City of Persepolis (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the former capital of Darius the Great which was founded in 512 BC. There was no more impressive construction in the ancient world than Persepolis, except perhaps the Karnak in Egypt.

From here, we will drive a couple of miles away to the Naqsh-e-Rostam (Necropolis) where Darius and his successors are buried. Carved into the side of a cliff, the site is extraordinary in its magnitude and sheer ambition and does not disappoint even after the impressive Persepolis.

Today we can practice Yuga with the help of a professional lady instructor, connect with nature, and refresh ourselves.

Accommodation

  • Arg 3-star hotel or a similar one in Shiraz
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Check out after breakfast, and proceed to Yazd. On the way, we will have a stop at Pasargadae (UNESCO World Heritage Site) the former capital of the Achaemenid Empire. Visit, the Tomb of Cyrus the Great and its famous Apadana Palace. We will spend some time exploring the site and though not as striking as Persepolis, there is a great viewpoint where we can look over the site and the surrounding area.

Proceed to Yazd.

Accommodation

  • Laleh 3-star hotel or a similar one in Yazd
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Yazd is one of the oldest continuously inhabited towns in Iran. Its silhouette is punctuated by minarets and ingeniously designed wind towers that capture desert breezes to cool homes during the hot summer months. Yazd is also the center of Iran’s Zoroastrian Community, which is where we’ll begin the day’s sightseeing.

At the Tower of Silence, we’ll learn about one of the traditions of this ancient pre-Islamic religion. Until the mid-1900s, the dead were transported to this tower where they were left to decompose and be devoured by birds. Zoroastrian tradition considers a deceased body to be “unclean” and this process of excarnation prevents contact with either fire or earth– both of which are considered to be sacred.

At the still-active Zoroastrian Fire Temple, we’ll see a flame that is said to have been burning for the past 1,500 years. It’s an important pilgrimage site for the faithful and here our expert guide will offer additional insight into one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions.

In Amir Chakhmaq Square, we’ll see a very impressive Hussainiya– a congregation hall for Shia commemoration ceremonies. With three tiers of recessed alcoves, all perfectly proportioned, its facade is one of the city’s most photographed landmarks.

The next place to visit is the Jame Mosque, built in 1324, where we can gaze upon the tallest minarets in the country. Beside the mosque is Fahadan District.  This neighborhood is one of the oldest and the most authentic neighborhoods in Yazd city, which was built during the Qajar dynasty.

We will end our today’ tour by visiting the Dowlat Abad Garden (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Standing by the garden’s long reflecting pool, we’ll be shaded by ancient cypress trees. Ahead of us is an 18th-century hexagonal pavilion with a beautiful stained-glass window and a graceful wind tower– the tallest in Iran.

Accommodation

  • Laleh 3-star hotel or a similar one in Yazd
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Continue our journey to Meybod, where our first impression might be its striking monochromatic architecture of desert brick. But set along an ancient trade route, Meybod also offers several fascinating sites to visit including its caravanserai.

We will visit the Narin Castle. In the center of Meybod, the crumbling Narin castle rises imposingly above the town that has grown up around it. Revealing three layers of construction, the oldest foundations suggest some kind of settlement was built here as early as 4000 BC.

The next place to visit is the Meybod Pigeon Tower, this tower is a historic structure located in Meybod, a city in the Yazd Province of Iran. It is a prominent example of ancient Iranian architecture and is considered one of the city’s main attractions. Lying on the Silk Route, the castle was used by soldiers who provided an armed escort for passing caravans, charging a tax for their services.

Another must-see monument in Meybod is Shah-Abbasi Caravanserai built in the Safavid era. Just like travelers in the past who could rest and recover from the day’s journey, we also stop here on our way to Isfahan to enjoy the architecture of the structure which has rooms all around it traditionally used as shops and stores.

Continue to Isfahan.

Accommodation

  • Traditional 3-star hotel or a similar one in Isfahan
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Our overland trip continues in Isfahan. As the 17th-century capital of the Safavid Empire, Isfahan was one of the world’s greatest cities– architecturally striking, wealthy beyond imagine, and politically powerful with Europeans, Ottomans, Indians, and Chinese coming to its court– the heart of a vast Persian Empire that stretched from the Euphrates River in present-day Iraq to the Oxus River in Afghanistan. Indeed, its grandeur inspired the rhyming proverb, Isfahan Nesf-e Jahan (Isfahan is half of the World).

Our exploration in Isfahan starts from the Chehel Sotun Palace (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Set in a landscaped and forested park in front of a tranquil reflecting pool, this graceful pavilion was built by Shah Abbas II for entertainment and court receptions.

Next up is the Naghsh-e Jahan Square (UNESCO World Heritage Site). This 17th-century site is one of the largest public spaces in the world. Here in the square, we’ll visit the 17th-century Shah Mosque, revered as a masterpiece of Islamic architecture and easily recognized by its magnificent tile-work and soaring cupola and minarets.

We will also visit the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, also known as the Royal Mosque, as it was built for the Shah’s harem, renowned for its brightly colored domed ceiling, where the light creates the image of a peacock. In the Ali Qapu Palace, we’ll marvel at its beautiful music rooms and the balconies where Safavid kings would sit to enjoy the polo matches unfolding in the square below.

Our next visit is to the Qeisarieh Bazaar. With hundreds of local vendors that specialize in traditional arts and crafts, it’s a wonderful place to shop for pottery, enamel, jewelry, and delicately inlaid board games.

We’ll end our exploration of today in one of the most beautiful historical bridges of Iran, Si-o-Se Pol. It is a magnificent stone bridge that spans the Zayandeh River and is one of the iconic landmarks of Isfahan. Si-o-Se Pol is particularly renowned for its architectural beauty and the stunning views it offers, especially during sunset.

Accommodation

  • Traditional 3-star hotel or a similar one in Isfahan
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Khaju Bridge is our last visit to Isfahan. It is another historical bridge that crosses the Zayandeh River. The bridge was built in the 17th century during the Safavid dynasty and is known for its unique architectural design and intricate tilework.

Leaving Isfahan behind, on the way to Kashan, we have an excursion to Abyaneh Village. Abyaneh Village is known as the Red Village because of its red soil and houses. The houses of Abyaneh bear an ancient architectural style, featuring the use of clay as the construction material and latticed windows and wooden doors.

Kashan is a town originally famous for its Textile, Rose Water, and Ceramic production.

Our afternoon tour of Kashan starts by visiting Tabatabaei’s and Borujerdi’s Traditional Houses. They were built about 130 years ago during the reign of the Qajar dynasty (1857) by Iranian famous architects.

After that, we will visit a traditional Iranian bathhouse called the Sultan Amir Ahmad Bath. This one is the best example of Iranian traditional bathes that local people call “the Bride of Iranian Baths”.

Accommodation

  • Negin 3-star hotel or a similar one in Kashan
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Check out after breakfast, before proceeding to Tehran, we will visit the beautiful Fin Garden (UNESCO World Heritage Site), a relaxing and visually impressive Persian Garden with water channels all passing through a central pavilion. There is also the chance to buy some rose water, a local specialty, outside of the site.

Then continue our journey to Tehran.

After a long journey, we will have some rest and massage experience to relieve fatigue. At this time, we can realize that the beauty salons in Iran have services and the Iranian women care for themselves.

Accommodation

  • Vernus 3-star hotel or a similar one in Tehran
  • Included Meals: Breakfast

Depending on your flight time, our representative will transfer you to the Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA) according to your flight time.

Travelling to ancient and mystical Iran has always been a dream of mine. In August of 2023, I finally took the plunge. Due to the vastness of the country, I reckoned I will not be able to backpack easily on my own. The glowing reviews of fellow travelers before me on TripAdvisor led me to contact SurfIran. Read More
