Let's travel together!  

To neither east nor west, but to exotic and fascinating Iran with Master Photographer Dale Neill and Persian Poetry expert/photographer, Mohammad Hosseini.

We're delighted to announce the details of a small, exclusive group tour featuring a stunning itinerary incorporating iconic sites of Iran. On this remarkable 15 day journey,  departing on 8 April 2017, you'll experience culture, food, art and  architecture.  

You will travel in the safe hands of Mo Hosseini, multi-lingual Australian guide, photographer and poetry enthusiast together with Dale Neill, UWA presenter and experienced leader in Egypt, Turkey and South America.

Our journey commences in Tehran; where East mingles with West, and the exotic with the modern.  We explore this amazing, buzzing city of 15 million with a city bus tour, stopping for photographic opportunities and to explore architectural and garden highlights.

We visit bath houses in Shiraz, photograph stained glass windows in Nasir-ol-Molk.  We explore the famous wind towers in the desert town of Yazd.  We also take in the Towers of Silence and the Fire Temple.  Later we visit Isfahan, the 'Pearl of the Middle-East'.

On our journey we will be staying in quality hotels and transported in safe, comfortable buses.  Eating is sure to be a cultural adventure, experiencing new tastes, styles and aromas, carefully guided by Mo.
