    The Must-See's

    Welcome to Tehran! From the Shah to the Jazz, today we’re leaving no stone unturned. Let’s begin this trip at Golestan Palace and shake hands with Iran’s most iconic kings; from the Qajar ones to the Pahlavi Shah. Our next two stops are the National Museum of Iran and the Treasury of National Jewels. Following that, we’ll take selfies with THE Azadi Tower herself. Then we’ll have a tea break in the smallest cafe in the world at Tehran Grand Bazaar. For dinner, we’ll go where the cool kids hang out, at a Rock Cafe or a Jazz Café.

  • Day 2: Isfahan

    Meet Iran Minorities

    We fly straight to Isfahan. First we’ll go to Naqshe Jahan Square and up a terrace with the same view of the square as the one in brochure pictures. Then, one by one we’ll visit the iconic landmarks including Shah Mosque, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, and Ali Qapu Palace. And while we explore the Grand Bazaar, you get to visit a handicraft workshop in person. Tonight, we’ll have a leisurely stroll and a delicious dinner at a cheerful restaurant near Si-o-se-pol or Khaju Bridge.

    The Sounds of Persia

    Today we’ll go to the golden girl, the Jameh Mosque of Isfahan. Want to have a chat with a real Mullah (an Islamic cleric or mosque leader)? No problem, we’ll arrange that for you! Then, we’ll head to Jolfa Street, the Armenian quarter of Isfahan, where you’ll find cozy cafes, historical city structures, old towns, and of course, the magnificent Vank Cathedral; the highlight of all Isfahan walking tours. After a delicious cup of Armenian coffee, we take you to Isfahan Music Museum, to see Persian musical instruments, learn how to play one, and enjoy a live performance!

    The Grandeur

Even today some of its remains are kept in the Louvre Museum, but you get to see the real thing in its full glory! After visiting Naqsh-e Rostam, we’ll go to the main city, take a break, and prepare for a fun afternoon stroll. During our walk, we’ll check out Arg of Karim Khan.

The trip was amazing! The itinerary was great in terms of the variety of activities in such few days. I would like to thank Zahra, she organised the trip superbly and everything went very smoothly even the flights which were new and different for this tour. She was also great at providing food recommendations for each city and was spot on with each suggestion! Her knowledge of each place really added to the whole experience and meant we had such an amazing and memorable trip! Highlights include Isfahan's huge square and Tehran's street food, which was an experience we requested seperately. The accommodation was all really high quality by all worldwide standards. Also the meals allowance was a great idea giving us choice over what we fancied each day! Overall it was a great trip and I would highly recommend a 1stQuest trip!
