Autumn 2017 dates announced

Burrows&Bird's Autumn 2017 small-group trip will take place from 21 to 31 October.

 

OUR JOURNEY

We'll follow our well-loved Classic Persia route, taking in the hip cafes, art galleries, museums and palaces of Tehran, followed by the historical treasures of Persepolis and Pasargadae. In Shiraz we'll watch a kaleidoscope of light stream onto the patterned tiles of the Pink Mosque, while in Yazd we'll see the fascinating desert sites of the Zoroastrians. In Esfahan we'll see a building so beautiful it's been known to move visitors to tears. We'll stay overnight in a 500-year-old Silk Road caravanserai in the desert, and we'll end our trip sipping rose water in the delightful Old City of Kashan.

WHO WE'LL MEET

On our journey, we'll be meeting a lively cast of locals, which may include artists, architects, astronomers, historians and grandmother chefs who will give you a deeper understanding of the personality of both ancient and modern Iran.

Looking ahead, the Burrows&Bird Spring 2019 trip will be a more luxurious journey, themed around the Persia's exquisite gardens. Plant-lovers, please drop us a note for more information.
