    For me it was a big opportunity to escape from the pressures of daily life and reconnect with nature and myself. I’ve always wished to visit Iran, but wasn’t ready to take a classic Persia tour. When I texted the support, Sima guided me and taking the trip happened at the best time! The mountain village, the yoga instructor and the ecolodge were all the best. Highly recommend!
