Persintravel offers you an unique programme. An adventorous roadtrip where the contrast of the country will be presented to you. We will travel from the dynamic capital city to the South of the country where you can see the dry scenery and the beautiful sights. Accordingly we will travel to the North where you will be astonished by all the green landscapes and beautiful villages. The programme includes visits to traditional houses, bath houses, mosques, villages and a lot more. However, what makes this program so special is the contact with the local people.
We find it important that you will be able to experience the true Iran and what better way to do this than through the ambiance, the delicious local food and the contact with the locals. You will discover a whole different world. And all of this with tourguides that speak Dutch, English and Farsi and are 24/7 available for your questions. Quality and your personal wishes are very important to us thus we will do our very best to offer you an unforgetable trip.
We offer three packages. You can choose between packages of ten, twelve and fourteen days. When you choose for the ten or twelve days packages you will stop with the excursion on the selected day and go home early. However, we advise you to take the full package in order to see the contrast of the country. As Iran is a very big country it takes the necessary amount of time to get the right impression of its beauty.
