Best time to be there

Generally spring and autumn are the best time to visit Iran even if the weather may, on occasions, be a little uncertain with short lapses into either the cold of winter or the heat of summer. More accurately mid-April to early June, and late September to early November are the best times to travel.

Guest Testimonial

We had an outstanding guide, Mr Upali Guneratne. His expert knowledge about the temples and ancient sites we visited, Sri Lankan history and customs, and the Island’s flora and wildlife made it a memorable experience for us both.
