Welcome to the Magic Carpet Travel web site, one of the best places to start planning your trip to Iran or Libya.
The difference between travel and tourism is that travel satisfies a hunger to know about faraway places that have not been profaned by tourism. We are a specialist travel company offering journeys to the antique lands of Persia (now Iran) and Libya.
Persia: The Old Testament refers to several places in Persia. The works of Darius the Great, Alexander and other legendary characters, are a part of one of the oldest civilisations in the world. With later conquests came the intricately decorated mosques and shrines that have no architectural equal.
Libya is another story: the shifting seas of sand allow dark, time-ravaged mountains to break the surface to reveal 12,000 year-old rock paintings. Over the millennia, nomads have left traces of a way of life beyond imagination. Since the Phoenicians, came Greeks and Romans – and what a magnificent legacy they have given us.
Our journeys are carefully planned to render high standards. We are licensed with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for your financial protection.
We offer four main services:
1. Arrange escorted travel to Iran and Libya for small groups
2. Tailor-make trips for those who do not wish to travel as part of a tour group.
3. Arrange visas for entry to Iran and Libya.
4. Make travel arrangements for business travellers clients and the media
