via its lower-priced Connections by A&K brand.
The 12-day "Persia: A Tapestry of Ancient and Modern
Iran" will include Persepolis, Pasargadae and the expansive Meidan Emam

a land rarely experienced by American travelers," A&K said.
Travelers will visit a total of seven Unesco World Heritage
Sites and will experience a traditional Iranian musical performance, visit an
artist's workshop, speak with a university professor, visit a carpet shop, and
explore mosques throughout the country.
The tour has departures on May 4, Sept. 14 and Oct. 5 and
