This 30 hours Tour nearby Shiraz is a unique journey with a real concept of Nomad life in Iran.
It starts at 4 pm, with the company of English speaking Tourist Guide.
Who will be your host? Qashqai tribe are Turkish- Iranian people who used to be the first power in south Iran from early times. Qashqai tribe, being one of the most populated tribes in Iran, are famous for patronizing their traditions and ceremonies. Qashqaees are a fan of partying and celebration in large number. They play music, dance, smoke water pipes, drink tea, eat delicious kebab, and chat with each other from evening to night.
More than all other Iranians with different origins, Qashqai people are genuinely hospitable. They cook the best dish and devote everything they have for their guests’ comfort. Yet they need respect for their privacy. So when you meet a Qashqai tribe, try to ask them if you needed anything and let the host invite you to discover different spots.
This day tour with supporting the local community and considering the expenses to preserve the environment is the right choice for Eco-Friendly Travellers and Responsible traveling.
The 30 hours start at 4 pm from Shiraz or Isfahan. (Based on time, departures from Shiraz might be the only choice) After transfer to the Nomads location and enjoy watching the sunset in pure nature, the Nomad family will welcome you and invite you to the tent to have dinner. This night you have time to know more about the family, how they married, and how many children they have, the tribe history. After dinner, we'll serve tea and family gather around the fire to talk and relax. (As you know, the Senior-aged Nomads are not familiar with English and the English knowledge of most of the young people is at a primary level, so your tour guide will be the one who connects you.)
Don't forget to go to sleep soon, because tomorrow is a Big Day!
Wake up time is before sunset, and today we'll be touring the area, bake bread, squeeze milk, participate in herding or guiding herd of sheep, do some horse-riding, and based on time enjoy being in a wedding ceremony or festival.
