Hormuz & Qeshm Tour Brief Introduction

The Persian Gulf is one of the important waterways in the Middle East. The strait of Hormuz connects the Persian Gulf to the high seas and the Indian Ocean. This gulf is the third biggest gulf in the world. Because of its geological features, the islands in this gulf are very unique. Also, these islands are among popular Iran destinations. Therefore, many want to travel with Qeshm tours to visit these amazing islands.

Why Qeshm & Hormuz?

Qeshm Island and Hormuz Island are two of pristine and beautiful islands in the Persian Gulf. Qeshm is the hugest island in the Persian Gulf. This island has attracted many tourists due to its special hills, coral beaches, and biodiversity. Also, entertainments like fishing, diving, and camping can be the reasons why Qeshm tours are very popular. Actually, many travel to Iran just to join Iran tour packages that include visiting Qeshm. Unfortunately, Optimized Persia Tour doesn’t include visiting these islands. Pearls of the Persian Gulf is the only Iran tour that takes you to visit them.

Camping and spending the night on a pristine island can be one of the interesting experiences of your trip.
