- Trip Description: It’s easier said than done to reconcile the country you’ve heard about on the news with a place where young couples walk hand in hand and hospitable families invite you in for a hot Chelow kebab and Ghormeh Sabzi. To think of Iran only in terms of the sights is to miss the real story. Our local guides will not only show you the picturesque attractions – but they’ll also show you what it means to be a modern-day Iranian. And that’s one thing you won’t get from your google search.
