Iran In-Depth Tour is a guided experience in which a guide accompanies you from the start to the end. He follows the itinerary you’ve chosen, pays the entrance fees for the sites and museums, manages the tour, takes responsibility for solving any issues occurring during the tour, etc.
This is a cultural tour in which you learn about the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of Iranians. Some of them are inscribed on UNESCO’s list and some are in UNESCO’s tentative list. Many still need to be documented to go through this process.
During Iran In-Depth Tour, you drive long and short distances and stop to see sites and people. At least every 90 minutes, you will stop to stretch your legs and relax for a while, have some refreshments, etc.
