Iran: In the Footsteps of Kings and Conquerors

And Persian New Year in Shiraz

Discover the wonderful people and rich heritage of Iran on our in-depth cultural journey with veteran Trip Leader Roger Williams, one of our most versatile Asia guides since 1986. No matter what your expectations, Iran will surprise you—and in delightful ways. The first is how warmly we are received everywhere we go, from Shiraz and Isfahan, legendary cities of the Persian Empire, to tiny hamlets where traditional ways of life still prevail. Another delight is discovering Iran’s strong ties with classical civilization at places like exquisite Persepolis, built by Darius in the 4th century BC and plundered by Alexander, and Pasargadae, capital of Cyrus the Great, founder of the Persian Empire. Roger is a veteran traveler to Iran, and on this new journey, we’ll visit 15 of Iran’s 26 marvelous UNESCO World Heritage Sites, from the ancient desert city of Yazd to Tehran’s Golestan Palace, residence of the Qajar rulers who introduced Western culture into Iran. Bring your spirit of wonder and curiosity on this journey deep into the history of this magnificent and ancient land.
