Here, your clients will have an amazing two day opportunity to see the Ruins of Persepolis and the Zoroastrian Ateshkadeh Fire Temple.

But what is ‘Zoroastrianism’ you ask? Here’s a fun fact about the religion: With roots as far back as the second millennium BCE, Zoroastrianism derives from ancient Iran and is believed to have been one of the precursors to Christianity; it is also still practiced to this day!
