Iran Tour from Iraq
5 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 5.00

For Iraqis, a tour to Iran is not just a visit to a neighboring country but a journey through shared stories, landscapes, and a deep cultural connection that enriches their understanding of their own heritage and that of their neighbors.

From the bustling bazaars of Tehran to the ancient ruins of Persepolis, Iraqi visitors will find common threads of history and heritage that unite these neighboring nations.

Exploring the architectural wonders of Isfahan and Yazd, Iraqis can draw parallels with their own rich Islamic heritage, deepening an appreciation for the region's shared artistic achievements.

The spiritual journey from Najaf to Mashhad, visiting sacred sites, offers Iraqi pilgrims a path of faith that transcends borders, highlighting the religious bonds that link Iraq and Iran.

The culinary journey across Iran introduces Iraqis to a palette of flavors that, while distinct, echo the rich gastronomic traditions of their homeland, fostering a delicious exploration of cultural similarities and differences.

Have a family dinner in a local house where you can experience friendly moments to eat with a local family.

On this day, you will be invited by a nice Iranian family to join them for dinner and see the daily life of Iranians.

We are also able to arrange a half-day culinary tour. This way, not only will you have the opportunity to dine with the family, but you will also enjoy home-cooked Persian food and learn about different tastes and spices used in Iranian dishes. Additionally, you will have the chance to get familiar with anything you would like to know about their Iranian cuisine, lifestyle.
