The 17th Golden Eagle train is scheduled to arrive at Sarakhs Border Crossing, Iran’s frontier with the neighboring Turkmenistan, on October 7, from where it will enter the Iranian territory for a two-week “Heart of Persia” tour.
“The train that set off from Russia will arrive in Iran empty on Sunday and will be in Tehran on Monday. The 52 foreign passengers from Australia, Germany, Italy, Singapore, the US, Malaysia and Russia, whose flights will have landed in Tehran by then, will board the Golden Eagle on Tuesday and head on a journey from the capital to Mashhad, Kerman, Rayen, Yazd, Isfahan, Shiraz, Kashan, Arak, Shushtar, Shush, Veresk and Pol Sefid and back to the capital. After the tour ends, the train will head back, again empty, to Russia,” CEO of Pasargad Tour Agency, the Iranian operator of the tour, Ebrahim Pourfaraj, told Financial Tribune.
