Foreign Travel Advice

If you want to explore and marvel at the blue mosques and architecture of Central Asia then this is the trip for you. Uzbekistan's Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand fight for supremacy with Iran's stunning cities of Esfahan, Shiraz and Yadz. The sheer quantity and quality of these magnificent cities defies belief.

Add in the history, civilisations and religion of the region and you have a fascinating journey. Sitting in the middle of this Islamic world, are the living relics of the 2000 year old Zoroastrian culture that is found around Yadz in central Iran and the remains of the "greatest city on Earth" Persepolis, the capital of the ancient Persian empire which was destroyed by Alexander the Great.

Day 1 - Tehran (20th April 2021)
Border Information: If joining in Tehran, you will most likely enter Iran at Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport (IATA code: IKA).

There will be a pre-departure meeting at 6:00pm - please do not be alarmed if there is no welcome note at the hotel on your arrival, as today is usually a travel day for the leaders and they are due to arrive in Tehran by mid-afternoon.

Please note that due to restrictions on citizens of the UK, USA and Canada being permitted to remain unaccompanied in Iran, you will need to fly into Tehran on the same day as the trip starts. These transfers from the airport to your joining hotel are automatically included in your trip. If arriving outside of these times please contact your sales agent. Please ensure the correct dates for your plans are clearly stated on all your visa applications.
