The dazzling Qeshm, the only geo-park in Iran, enjoys numerous geo-sites. We first visit Chahkouh Valley where million years of erosion have created spectacular views, particularly the cavities. Stars Valley is the second site and a must-see in Qeshm. This area was carved out by wind and rain approximately 2 million years ago. In places, the valley is 15m below the surface of the plateau it has eroded from and is adorned with oddly shaped arches, columns and passageways. Its name seems to be derived from the legend that the valley was formed from falling stars. The salt caves are the last place we plan to see.

Reviews :

I’ve just returned from a fantastic 10-day trip to Iran arranged by ‘Iran Marcopolo’. We visited Tehran and many Islands in the Persian Gulf, such as Qeshm, Kish, and Hengam. All the hotels, food, and water activities were great. I felt safe at all time and shared fascinating experiences we had with my friends. I’ll definitely go to Iran again.

Iran is a safe, fun, exciting, and beautiful country to visit. It’s totally different from what you see & hear in the media. We really liked Tehran, Qeshm, and Kish. All the sights and activities were interesting and well planned! It was an excellent tour with wonderful people. Iran Marcopolo Tours was great and I would recommend them to anyone who wishes to visit Iran!

BastienFrom France

I did a ten day tour to Tehran and the Persian Gulf with ‘Iran Marcopolo’ and it was better than I expected. All the islands we went to were brilliant. People were very friendly. Our guide was well experienced and loved his country. He was a true athlete and had a good sense of humor.

LauraFrom UK

I loved this 10-day tour to Persian Gulf. Everything was great. Museums we visited in Tehran were interesting. The Islands were beautiful. I really enjoyed scuba diving in the Persian Gulf. It’s fascinating down there under the water! And I have to mention this: I felt safer in Iran than I have in many other countries.
