We have heard of the land, but we have only perhaps known very little of it. The people of Iran and their hospitality adds to the sights of this country. We have planned an itinerary around the cultural golden route of Iran, where appreciating its beautiful monuments will go hand in hand with enjoying the culture of Iran.

There is a lot of western media propaganda about safety in Iran. This same western media talks about India being unsafe because of the problems in Kashmir. We know Iran and would like to tell you that it is very safe to travel to Iran.
