About Burrows&Bird Travel
This boutique travel company runs small-group trips to Iran, as well as creates unique, tailor-made itineraries for private tours.
The group trips take place in Spring and Autumn. They are limited to 8 guests so your experience is intimate and relaxed. Burrows&Bird founder, Victoria Burrows, leads the trips, accompanied by an outstanding full-time local guide.
Itineraries take in the iconic sites of Iran, including Persepolis, Shiraz, Esfahan, and the Zoroastrian sites of Yazd. Along the way, you will meet local scientists, historians, artists, architects and grandmother chefs who give an insight into the personality of Iran, past and present. Trips are sometimes themed, focusing on contemporary art, Iranian cuisine or ancient Persian gardens.
Burrows&Bird opts for hotels that offer a strong sense of place – not necessarily luxury, but always something a little special, be it a restored mansion, a 500-year-old caravanserai in the desert, or an urban hotel with a terrace that overlooks the city.

Victoria is exceedingly well researched, impeccably organised and eager to please - everything you could want in a tour operator and guide. Best of all she is a wanderer at heart, so it's little surprise she's gone from exploring India in depth to venturing into the untapped wonders of Iran. Go now while it's not yet inundated with tourists!!
