I will be glad to send the pictures of what you could see if you kindly contact me. I wish I can meet all desert lovers here in Iran. Experience: 16 years experience in handling many tours from many European countries, Canada and USA to most parts of Iran especially desert tours and finding routes by GPS in desert. Also I have guided tours to all the provinces and small and big cities. I am interested in traveling in deserts and spending nights under the shining stars, and enjoying the sunny days, I have traveled all parts of Central desert and some parts of Lut desert by my own 4WD car and most of the time my friends and I have traveled with groups in 3 or 4 or 5 cars.
As I am a tourist guide I do both jobs I prepare all facilities that we need in the desert. Desert tours also includes visiting ancient and historic cities and villages and accommodation in hotels and camping. Trip durations are variable depending on your requirements; one week is the minimum but 2 or 3 weeks give you the chance to really see the country. Party sizes can be from one person upwards but I would suggest that 20 is a sensible maximum. To fully enjoy your desert trip you will need to bring the following: suitable sleeping bag, sun glasses, sun block, hat/cap and comfortable boots and don't forget any medication you are taking.
