Earthquake in Iraq / Iran (12/11/2017)

BBC News (UK) and other worldwide media outlets have reported that a 7.3-magnitude earthquake has shaken the northern border region between Iran and Iraq on Sunday 12 November.

The Golden Eagle is currently operating in Iran, but we can confirm all passengers on board are safe and well and they will be completing their tour as scheduled as they head to our final destination of Tehran today.

The Persian Odyssey departure (13 - 27 November, 2017) will be operating as scheduled.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and advise accordingly of any further updates.
