Tehran

Tehran is the 32nd city to become the capital of Iran and the city considered the heartbeat of the country. With its nearly 13 million inhabitants, Tehran is a modern metropolis with a traditional side known for welcoming different cultures, ethnicities and nationalities into its loving arms.

The city, which bustling with life during the day and peacefully calm at night, is the center of cultural, educational, economical, political and social activities and a place home to countless historical mosques, churches, synagogues and Zoroastrian fire temples.

Tehran is surrounded by mountains, making it a popular destination for skiers in the Middle East who flock to the six marvelous ski resorts - Shemshak, Dizin, Darbandsar, Tochal, Ab Ali, and Khor -in and around the city to enjoy the fresh, untouched powder. The dry, light snow of these resorts has become an addiction for many skiers.

Tehran may be the city of high-rise buildings, chic restaurants, gardens, graffiti art and lights that shine bright in the dark of the night but it’s the warmth and hospitality of its inhabitants and the diversity of its lifestyle that forever captures the hearts of visitors.

Gem of Persia
Edwin & Diana From  The Netherlands
We had a wonderful holiday in Iran en that was also because of our tour guide Shahram Rafie of Step To Iran. He has a lot of knowledge about the history of Iran and it’s cultural heritage and tells enthusiastically about it. Although we had beforehand an itenary, he organized spontaneous things in between: climbing into ancient desert cities, visiting a carpet shop with explanation by the carpet seller, doing a jeep safari, etc. This was of course always in consultation with us. We also had enough time to do things on our own. Furthermore he arranges everything, like a roomchange or a place in a full (!) restaurant; and knows the best restaurants in every town. Last but not least he is a nice guy, which is important when you travel together for a couple of weeks. So we love to visit Iran again, with Step To Iran.
