Our journey starts from Mashhad, a destination of not only pilgrims but tourists from around the world. We will have a chance of walking through traditional bazaars and experience being in spiritual atmosphere of Imam Reza holy shrine early in the morning.

This photography tour is a combination of different tour styles, cultural, natural and also agriculture tours. The intact nature of Kalat Naderi and palace of the Sun invites us to the history book of Persia.

Turquoise mine is not an ordinary destination you can find on any tours, let alone traveling to the oldest mine of Turquoise in Neyshaboor. Collecting royal purple saffron flowers risen from the soil when sun is rising on the horizon is a life-time experience. Locals are so interested to show how to pick the flowers and do it with care and love to be processing.
