Adventure Associates has released two extraordinary ‘From Persia to Iran’ journeys, which aim to visit and learn about the ancient treasures of Persia and understand the Iran of today.
Adventure Associates Managing Director, Sue Werner, said this tour was carrying on the tradition of the company, by taking exciting ideas to the thinking traveller. “We want travellers to be able to experience destinations in a more in-depth way, and come away with a greater understanding of the places they visit and people they meet. This is a recurring theme in our program for 2015 and beyond,”
Commencing in Shiraz, the heartland of Persian culture, the journey takes in many of the highlights of this fascinating country. Explore Esfahan, home to the most majestic collection of buildings in the Islamic world, and ancient Persepolis with its world heritage listed ruins. Experience real Iranian hospitality with an authentic homestay in the desert oasis of Garmeh, gaze upon the soaring minarets and blue tile domes of Yazd, and wander the UNESCO listed Bazaar of Tabriz and the famous Blue Mosque. These are just some of the highlights on this 15 day comprehensive journey staying in 4 and 5 star accommodation, including the 5 star Abassi Hotel in Esfahan.
Adventure Associates also offer a 5 day extension tour of Jordan which travels the Kings Highway from Amman to the ancient civilization of Petra, an exhilarating 4WD tour of the Wadi Rum and a visit to the Dead Sea.
