Additional description of the trip

Tour Type Historical

Cultural and Historical Tours

These types of tours are specifically made to cultural destinations, historical sites and ancient monuments. Evidently, the main aim is to visit a specific place or event; as a result, providing information and explanations will be more noticeable than other tours. For example, the trip may be planned to visit only one or more Carvanserai (inns), with only the description of the architecture, history, or anecdotes of that site. What distinguishes these trips from public trips is being information-oriented. For example, in the case of Kashan, several sites are usually visited in a public tour, with shorter descriptions and limited stopping time while in a special cultural trip, only two sites of historical and architectural sites may be visited, with more detailed descriptions on the sites. This means that these tours may be more challenging depending on the sites. Generally, the amenities are dependent on our specific schedule and the facilities of the sites.

With the provided explanations, it is obvious that such trips may be boring for the public, so those who take these trips are:
