A little bit about Lucas:

Lucas, Brazilian and 30 years old, contacted us at February, 2022 for arranging his trip to Iran. Lucas and his girlfriend Paula, were looking to spend around two weeks in Iran and they were very interested in visiting Hormoz island specifically. The following are their requests about the kind of trip they wanted to have:

  • Duration of stay: two weeks
  • Preferably Economic
  • Private driver-guide for the entire trip
  • Skiing in Shemshak or Dizin area

What we did for Lucas:

We immediately started the planning process since there was not much time left until their desired arrival date to Iran. After discussing different options on Whatsapp, we designed a plan for them which started in Tehran, had a full day of skiing in Shemshak resort included, and then they would head all the way down on the classic route, towards Qeshm and Hormoz islands.

This is what their itinerary looked like in a glance:

Now let’s dive-in to his day to day destinations:
