At Intrepid exploring the unknown and mysterious is a way of life, now is the best time to explore Iran - avoid the tourist crowds and experience the culture - then judge for yourself how questionable the tour was.

'I decided to travel with Intrepid to Iran to cut through the political and media spin and experience the country and culture first hand.' Comments Intrepid traveler Ellen Westbrook; 'It was important for me to see the beautiful old cities, mosques, and ancient sites like Persopolis before they are possibly destroyed by wartime violence.'

So go off the beaten path and discover refined Islamic cities, colorful bazaars, ancient ruins, fascinating nomads, shimmering deserts and lofty snow-capped peaks. Whether relaxing in a teahouse in Tehran, or breaking bread with the Qashqai nomads on the harsh Iranian plateau, you'll be touched by the warmth and hospitality of the Iranian people, and the profound beauty of their land.

"Fascinating and mesmerizing; Iran is probably one of the most misunderstood countries on the planet.' Comments Intrepid traveler Anna Maria Reforgiato Recupero, ' I will not forget the kindness of the people, the beauty of the sites and the silent calm of the landscapes."

In 1988, young Australians Darrell Wade and Geoff Manchester threw caution to the wind, bought a rusty truck and took an epic journey across the Sahara. Somewhere between the endless sand dunes they had an idea for a style of group travel that was well out of the ordinary. Travel that took small groups to meet local people, traveled on anything that moved and to experience the Earth's most amazing places up close. Travel that was filled with real life experiences. Twenty years later, Intrepid Travel has grown from a Saharan idea to become one of the world's leading small group adventure travel companies with 600 staff globally and 400 trips in 93 countries.

Wherever we go in the world, we take a responsible attitude with us. We mostly take public transport, stay and eat in small-scale, locally-owned establishments, travel in small groups, and spread the word of sustainable tourism wherever possible.
