Reviews :

I very much enjoyed the “Zagros Safari” Tour. We traveled 2100 km in total through Zagros Mountains. Everyone at Iran Marcopolo were very responsive and supportive. Our guide was very energetic and knowledgeable. We also had good, comfortable and clean accommodations with great food.

SzymonFrom Poland

This 7-day tour was one of the best travel experiences I’ve ever had. The tour was well organised, people were very friendly, mountain villages were awesome, and we felt totally safe at all times. Absolutely no regrets!

JoaoFrom Brazil

We completely enjoyed this 7 day tour to western Iran. This wasn’t the first time we were going to Iran. We went to famous tourist cities of Shiraz and Isfahan last time. This time we wanted to see a different side of Iran, and this Zagros Safari tour fully met our expectations. Thank you Iran Marcopolo, it was excellent.

MilaFrom Belgium

Thank you to Iran Marcopolo! I have recently returned from a wonderful 7-day trip to Western Iran. The country’s nature is wonderful and unique. Our guide and driver made sure that our trip through Zagros Mountains went smoothly. Everyone were so polite and helpful. Really recommended.
