Additional description of the trip

Tour Type Classical

Classical tours

This type of tour is a combination of different types of trips like nature, cultural and adventure trips, and it is designed in a way that people with different age groups and interests can participate and get acquainted with new aspects of group trips. At first glance, such trips may not be different from trips made by families and individuals in private cars, but it must be said that such trips (according to the travelers themselves) have features that distinguish them from personal trips. These features include meeting new people, seeing places that are usually not paid attention to for reasons like rushing to the destination, driving, being tired, and not having enough knowledge of the history, culture and climate of an area that is offered by a tour guide.

Considering the main purpose of such trips, which is to create diversity and vitality in general public, make them more familiar with responsible trips, and make them aware of sustainable tourism, mostly families and individuals are interested in group trips. Such trips usually include visits to several natural or cultural sites or a combination of both. Of course, such programs neither have the same difficulty as nature tours, nor provide specific historical and cultural information, which are offered in special cultural tours. An attempt is made to consider an intermediate plan for travelers in order to get the maximum satisfaction while fulfilling the initial goals of Persian trips tourism agency.
