“See You in Iran tours” are interactive sociocultural outings. We try to create an atmosphere to connect our guests and locals.
Si-e-Tir Street is famous for having different communities living on the same street; Armenians, Zoroastrians, Muslims and Jews are all having their own neighborhoods.
Si-e-Tir starts from Imam Khomeini Street where Tehran gate, Mashgh sq. and National museum are located. By walking through the street ceramic and glassware museum, Armenian Church, Zoroastrians fire temple and school and many local shops will come along.
