On this tour, you will have some free times and we can use them to do something very special. We are going to teach you Farsi during our trip and it helps you to enjoy your communication with people. The courses are basic level and include normal daily conversations of local people. Through these practices, we can find our mutual words, idioms, traditions, hobbies, …  and learn Farsi by having fun.

There is this misunderstanding that Iranian are Arab and speak Arabic, which is not correct. Although we have a similar alphabet but the languages and races are different. Join us to learn and practice Farsi in the center of this language and later you can enjoy poems of Rumi, Hafez, Sa’adi, … by reading them in Farsi.

In this case, you would be familiar with the features of Iranian night gatherings like foods, desserts, storytellings, seasonal fruits or dry fruits, distillates, customs, cultures, and traditional kinds of music.
Our dinner would be a homemade traditional food of that specific city and you can also join the preparation process of your dinner.
We are the first and only Iranian tour operator that applies “Dialogue of Cultures Programs” with a large quantity and a great quality and all free of charge.
We need to inform you that we have carefully selected the families to make sure you will have a perfect night with knowledgable experts.
