Reviews :

It was exciting to see the desert cities of Yazd, Naein, and Maybod, trekking in Zarin desert, and wander through the outstanding historical sights and workshops. The people were very friendly and generous. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you Iran-Marcopolo.

CharlieFrom Australia

Our 6 day trip to central Iran was one of the most unforgettable holidays we’ve ever had. The tour was well organised and we witnessed many historical and ancient religious sights. The calmness and landscape of the desert was magnificent. I will certainly go to Iran again to visit other parts of this beautiful country.

LouiseFrom France

We loved Iran and its warm and welcoming people. The tour allowed us to experience the pure peace of desert cities, historical sights and neighborhoods, and unique nature of deserts. Accommodation & food were adequate and our guide was awesome. Iran really needs to be visited by tourists, so please put it on your bucket list!

NoahFrom Britain

The 6 day tour “Desert Voyage” arranged by Iran-Marcopolo was a great experience and went beyond our expectations. Excellent itinerary, amazing desert scenery, fascinating architecture, nice Eco-lodge accommodation, friendly people,... this trip was a wonderful experience! And it’s to mention that contrary to popular beliefs, Iran is extremely safe.
