Discover More About Iran


With its soaring mountains, spectacular ancient sites and legendary hospitality, Iran captivates and beguiles. Since recorded history Iran has enticed travellers, poets and writers who have been drawn by the glories of Persepolis and the promise of untold riches deep in the bazaars and caravanserais of medieval Persia. Today, Iran remains a diverse and largely mysterious land home to some of the world’s most incredible sights – a must for anyone with an interest in history and archaeology. Highlights include the monolithic tombs of Darius and Xerxes, the Achaemenid capital of Persepolis, Isfahan’s stunning Islamic architecture, the Sassanian and Parthian remains at Taq-e-Bostan and sophisticated Shiraz. Iran with its delicious food and welcoming people will certainly not disappoint. Pettitts specialises in providing quality, tailor-made holidays and tours to Iran.

Customer Testimonial

We greatly enjoyed our recent tour which Pettitts organised, particularly because we had an excellent guide whose deep knowledge of his subject combined with his very good English and warm personality, greatly enhanced our experience.

We had an excellent time and would thoroughly recommend a visit to Iran where we felt very welcome and safe.
