Zoroastrian highlight 7 days tour to Iran
Zoroastrians in Iran have had a long history, being the oldest religious community of that nation to survive to the present-day. Prophet Zoroaster and his first followers are believed to have been the proto-Indo-Iranians that lived between the Stone Age and Bronze Age (est. 1400-1200 BC). The proto-Indo-Iranians (Aryans) were later divided in to two distinct branches of Iranian and Indians; the Persian Aryans branch migrated to Iran as early as 2000 BC. Zarathustra Tour in The Heart of Persia is one of the must-see Iran tour packages.
