For those tourists who would like to experience an exotic trip, “Iran Village Tour” is a great choice. Our main focus during this trip will be on a few villages that are very rich and important both historically and also from the point of view of anthropology.
Since these villages are very scattered all over the country, and in order to save your time and expenses, we will start the trip from the city of Shiraz in the south and end it at the city of Tabriz in the northwest.
