Doing the Impossible Tour

5 Day Iran Budget Tour

From € 450

Are you kidding?

I was telling my colleague, dreams do come true. I used to think to myself in an era when people are traveling more than ever, what is it that has kept me from my dream of traveling to faraway lands. My answer was always intertwined with money and time limitations until I figured out a way last week.

A: “Wow, that’s a beautiful dress you are wearing, Anna. How come I’ve never seen it?”

B: “Well, I bought it on my trip to Iran last week.”

A: “You are kidding, right? How did you travel to Iran? You told me you did not have much money for the five days you had off. I thought you ended up just going on a weekend getaway somewhere close.”

B: “Well, I was searching on google to find a weekend getaway here in Europe. Then I came across this 5-day tour package in Iran that cost pretty much the same as the weekend retreats in Europe. So, I booked it and bam. I was walking in one of the most ancient countries.”

A: “Wow, I want to hear all about it. If nothing else, that dress looks pretty unique”.

B:” It’s not just the dress that was special. The image I had in mind from Iran was so much different than what I experienced traveling there. I’ll tell you more about each day, so you see what I am talking about.”

A: “I would love to hear. Maybe I can also plan to go sometime.”

The diversity and the hospitality of the people and the beautiful culture made me want to go back again. However, I decided to go with this week-long luxury tour package to experience all the essentials of Iran with a different traveling style.

I’ll tell you the reasons why I had regretted the first time I visited Iran through the itinerary of this journey!

Itinerary

Story of the Day


Walking in Tehran, I thought about how I made a mistake traveling all this way to Iran. It did not seem so much different than another Europe country with its modern architecture and crowded city life.

    Tehran’s Largest Pedestrian Overpass
  • Bame Tehran
    (Depending on arrival time)
  • Saadabad Palace
    (Depending on arrival time)

Story of the Day


Well, I was kind of wrong. From the ancient architecture of Golestan palace to the hidden gems from thousands of years ago in the museums, I understood my trip was not a retreat but an exploration of unknowns through a historical land called Iran.

Story of the Day

Staring at this skeleton from 5000 years ago at Sialk hills made me realize, that’s all that we leave behind when we die. It made me happy I made my dream come true while I had the chance to live my life. I was not letting anything stop me from seeing the unique way people live their lives in the red clay village of Abyaneh.

    Features of Iran’s traditional residential architecture

Story of the Day


This is where I bought the dress from a local shop at Imam square. This was a special day in Iran. Why? I explored some of the most breathtaking historical heritage sites around the square. I was mesmerized by Bazaar. It had many unique handicrafts that were made right in front of my eyes by the makers and locals of Isfahan.

    A UNESCO World Heritage

Story of the Day

I went to a beautiful ancient church. Also, I explored a famous mosque in Isfahan to express my gratitude for making my dream come true without so much cost. I couldn’t believe I even had saved some money for souvenirs that I have brought for a few people I love. That was when I realized I was wrong thinking Iran was anything like the closer countries I could have visited in that short amount of time.

Experiences

    Jolfa Square is the heart of the Armenian community in Isfahan.
