The Country of Nobles
A journey to Iran is a chance to peel away the layers of a country with a serious image problem. Beyond the stereotypes you’ll experience a country desperate to be seen for what it is, rather than what it is perceived to be. It is a country where the desert glory of ancient Persepolis exists alongside the dynamic present of today’s traffic-choked Tehran. At its core you’ll discover a country of warm and fascinating people living within sophisticated culture.
