Comment:We were 5 persons and we had an 11 days tour. Everything was perfect in a wonderful country with a great civilization and marvelous people. Your tour agency had organized everything very well. We had special needs and Josef and mister Samad (our drivers), Hamid and Abbas (our tour guides) made our trip easier. Now we have some very good Persian friends. We want to thank everybody and be sure that we will talk about you to anybody who wants to visit Iran. Dimos-Sofia-Marianna Dimitris-Gogo
At first i must thank you and all WHO tried to realize this famous tour for us.İran is really a charming country and we are very contents for all except to see in an ermenian church a lot thinks on genosid that we do not accept and it is some think degasting to see such thinks in the territory of friendly country.About sides we visited i must say Holly schrine of İmam Rıza is a place that we never seen before in my life(just now i visited more than 70 country).And before seeing Gülistan palace i said the pmrvellous palace that ever seen is Schonnbrunn in Wien but after Gülistan palace this mind changed.And to be sure you will a lot of clients from Turkey because all my friends WHO see our pictures on facebook ask us how can they same tour. With my best regards Dr.Bülent Dilaveroglu
Hello. Greetings from Brazil. My trip to Iran was fantastic. It was truly an unforgettable experience. I chose PTA to arrange my tour and couldn't be more grateful. I would like to thank everybody from PTA for the awesome job done, specially Aliye Jafari, who's been so helpful and cleared all my doubts regarding my trip from Brazil to Iran and also to the tour guide Nazli Farjam in Tehran, she's so nice to be around, funny and she would go out of her way to keep us satisfied. See you in Brazil soon, Nazli. And of course, our tour guide, Saeid! He's such a character, very funny and extremely knowledgeable about persian history and Iranian places. I told him to make an audiobook because I wouldn't remember all the Persian histories he told us during the trip. I would give Iran a 100 points out of 100! Iran definitely surpassed all my expectations. It's history, people, culture, music, movie, religion, architecture and nature all wrapped into one beautiful country enjoying all types of weather situations. The road views I captured with my camera (and with my mind) going on tour from Shiraz to Hamedan were simply spectacular! It was good to join only 2 more guys on the tour because it felt more like a road trip and road trips are the best. All hotels were nice, specially the one in Hamedan, the Babataher. Local people are kind, thoughtful and they will go out of their way to help you. I felt very comfortable since day 1 and was already feeling like a local Tehraner. The authorities' behavior was ok. In other words, I didn't have any trouble with them. They seem nice and helpful. The ones at checkpoints and the city guards would go nuts everytime I said I was from Brazil and they would say: "Oh, Brazil. Good. Football!" hahaha Mersi, PTA. Mersi, Iran.
Thanks to your agency for the organization of our trip, as it met our requirements, quickly and in the best way.
Thanks to our guide Afarin ("Afrique") that gently and professionally guided us in your beautiful country, taking us by the hand and with confidence, in a world so different from ours, giving us historical information and more,
leaving us a positive memory of your people, indelibly.
A symbolic embrace between you and us with deep respect and affection.

1- When on organised travel I always pass my remarks or objections to local guide whom I recognise as representative of travel agency not a private person. That helps us both - him and me to solve the problems if any, as they follow, without bothering the agency. Of course, if there is no cooperation or matter is too serious to be solved on this level I apply to the agency. During this trip there was no necessity to involve PTA and Mr Vahid was enough to solve the problems as they appeared.
2. When travel agency, does not matter Polish or foreign asks me after the trip to send suggestions or remarks developing the service provided I always answer I will do it if I was employed by the agency. That is job of tour leader or guide basing on the current problems happened when working with the group. So point 2 is strictly connected with point 1. I do hope Mr. Vahid passed all necessary remarks after his return to Shiraz.

Jonas (63) and Aldona (61) from Lithuania enjoyed Treasure of Persia 12-day Tour in April 2014. We joined a really international group of 14 persons from 7 countries and 4 continents. The sole of our friendly small community became our guide Mr. Ariya Atashsoda. Mr. Ariya's deep historical and cultural knowledge, sincere concern for the whole group and each person, love to his work and to his country made him the best tour guide we have ever seen. Our driver Mr. Hamid was friendly and helpful man and fantastic driver. We got this trip thanks to Mrs. Aliye Jafari's great efforts and patience. Everything in this tour was perfectly organised from night meetings and transfers from/to airports to booking of modest but comfortable hotels in good locations. We are thankful to Aliye and all invisible staff of PTA for access to Iran, it's peoples and thousands years of history and civilization. Jonas and Aldona.

We were a group of 17 friends on a journey that we are unlikely to ever forget. Iran is a beautiful country with its great history, warm and very friendly people, and a civilised and sophisticated culture. We felt very safe through out the journey. We were very fortunate to have Vahid Negahbandfard as our excellent guide - an extremely polite, attentive, knowledgeable and entertaining young man and the most wonderful driver , Mansoor. They looked after us with care and consideration which went beyond their call of duty. I cannot praise them enough. Aliye Jafferi was our tour coordinator. She was the first contact we had with Pars tourist agency and they should be proud of her.She managed to deal with problems we had along the way and was always available if we needed her. We did not manage to Fit Tabriz into our schedule so we will definitely be back! We have told all our friends that they definitely need to have Iran on they wish list destinations. Just a few small points if you are planning a trip. We would have liked a detailed schedule of our day to day plan as most travel agents on a tour provide. That way we could have done some research on the places we were to visit and made sure that they were open on the days that we were there. Secondly, there were some places where the better accommodation was not available. We would have preferred to be told from the outset and may be advised to select different dates. At least the option to do that should have been offered. I know that when I return to Iran, I will be using Pars tours again. We wish them every success for the future.

Although it was not originally planned it turned out that became big traveler, soon 50 visited countries. But always wanted to visit Iran, could not be traveler and not thinking about such great country with long and big history and tradition. Mrs Aliye Jafari was more than helpful in organization my trip while Mr Afshin Vafa, our tour guide was and is great friend, no more words needed to be said. With no single unpleasant situation,with a lot of great things experienced returned home with full heart and mind. For more specific information do not hesitate to contact me on email@example.com, also on my facebook page could find several hundreds pictures from Iran trip, everybody is more than welcome to visit. https://www.facebook.com/marko.dugalic/photos_albums Upon return recommended PTA agency to everyone, hope that my great experiences will bring more and more people to Iran.

Our trip to Iran was very nice, the guide and the driver were very professional and friendly.
I have a memory of great sympathy and friendship.
The people we met we were left feeling very nice and friendly.
The whole group is back in Italy happy and satisfied.
The relationship with the agency, that is with you, he was always polite and professional.
I have nothing to criticize your work: we only had the problem of not fuonzionameto air conditioning in the desert was hard to bear for us not used to those temperatures but is the guide that the driver did everything they could to ceracre to solve the problem.
The hotels we stayed DVE were very good ... with charm and tradition ... as we requested.
Only those in Tehran and Shiaraz were of "international" (good quality) it for us less "interesting".
The whole group of my cultural association was satisfied and probably be able to bring other people in the future ... maybe even with other routes

Mr. Massood Nematollahi
Managing Director, Pars Touris Agency
Dear Mr. Nematollahi,
My husband and I recently took a three week tour organized by PTA and we had such a marvelous experience we wanted to write you to say how pleased we are with the work your agency did. Most especially we want to say how much we appreciate our guide, Afshin Vafa.
I am sure you know about Afshin’s wonderful qualities but we would like to let you know that these qualities are very apparent to your tourists, as well. He is a remarkable young man. We found him to be extremely observant and attentive to our needs, very creative in offering us opportunities to experience Iranian life, and dedicated to making sure we had days full of varied events. He was absolutely generous with his time, kind to us in every way, and a delight to spend time with. He introduced us to his family, to his friends, and to Iranian customs and foods. These are memories we will never forget.
More than just being an excellent tour guide, Afshin is an honorable and trustworthy young man. We felt he represented the best of Iranian youth and he will be our most lasting memory of your country. I am sure that you feel very proud of Afshin. It is hard to imagine that we might have had a better experience.
We also want to thank and commend Aliyeh Jafari who made all the arrangements for our tour and was very responsive during the planning stages.
Many thanks to your company for a most enjoyable and memorable experience.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for putting together for us a wonderful private tour of Iran. This will be a tour that we will remember. As a tour operator you were able to meet our needs, wants and requirements in every detail. Iran is a beautiful country, rich in ancient history and culture. We were overwhelmed by friendly people who proudly welcomed us to their country. I would like to mention also the tour guides you assigned for our tour. In Shiraz we were greeted by the very friendly Saeed who exceeded all our expectations of a tour guide. He was polite and courteous and flexible with tour plans and he ensured we were comfortable and happy. Saeed's knowledge of the history and culture of Iran was amazing. We had a wonderful 10 days with Saeed from Shiraz to Isfahan. Saeed is an asset to your company. From Mashad to Tehran our tour guide was Zohreh who was very diligent in her duties as our guide. She was friendly and very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Iran. Zohreh ensured our itinerary was followed. Zohreh is also an asset to your company. It was a very good idea and necessary to have a local guide to assist Zoreh for the Shahrud area. The local guide (Mr. Ashouri) was able to significantly enhance our experience in this area as he had agreater understanding of the desert and local villages and of course the Miandast Cheetah Reserve. Without Mr. Ashouri's help we may not have been able to visit the reserve. It is also necessary to have a well appointed vehicle for the Shahrud area as much of it is rough /desert roads.
Thank you once again.

Pars Tourist Agency was able to tailor our open jaw tour exactly to our request. Our guide/driver Abdullah was cheerful and very knowledgeable about the sites and worked with us at our pace. He always made good suggestions for new local dishes to try, and he was made good restaurant decisions. Once, when we were not happy with the hotel we were booked into, he quickly changed us over to a nicer place without a rate change. He took a personal interest in us and pretty soon was able to make good judgements about activities and sites we would all enjoy. For example, he knew we were interested in hearing the men who sing in the bridge at Esfahan, so he got us there at a time when the best ones were most likely to be there. We really loved the historic hotels in Kashan and Yazd, magical cities. I will be returning.
Name: Emilio & Friends
We were a group of 4 and enjoyed a fifteen days tour of Iran. Iran is a great Country both in term of dimesnion as well as in term of history and culture. We had wonderful experiences in meeting very friendly local people, interested and curious of other nationalities. Italians (but I am sure other nationalities too) are very welcome. The infrastractures (highways) are extremely good. Besides the "crazy" traffic in Tehran (but they are 14 millions!) outside traffic is more than reasonable. The infrastructure of Internet connection can still be improved, even if we found a wifi (free) connection in the "Underground city" at Kashan. Infrastructures like hotel can be improved too, especially because Iran target to host something like 20 millions tourist by 2020. Overall a great experience. We have to thank Moshen, our guide, Alì our driver, Aliye our correspondent in Pars Agency and Mosad "the boss". All of them helped us to overcome the little inconveniences we experienced during or trip.

Somos un grupo de amigos españoles que viajamos por el mundo. En Septiembre de 2.014 hemos estado en Irán. Hemos contratado los servicios de esta agencia que ha cumplido todo lo que prometió según nuestras peticiones: guía, hoteles, coche, chófer. Por ello, la recomendamos.
Al contrario de lo que pueda parecer Irán no es un país inseguro. Realmente es muy seguro. Los iraníes son muy hospitalarios y amigables. Es frecuente que te paren por la calle y te pregunten si necesitas ayuda o que pregunten qué se piensa de ellos fuera de Irán. Las familias pasan su tiempo libre en los parques y jardines (hay muchos) extienden un mantel y... a comer y charlar. En cuanto les miras un poco te llaman y te ofrecen que te sientes a su lado para compartir con ellos la comida, la conversación y una taza de té. Son muy curiosos. Son ellos los que nos han pedido hacerse fotos con nosotros y no al contrario.
Por otro lado, el país es muy bello y hermoso. Lo que se refleja en ciudades como: Isfahán, Yazd, Kermán, Shiraz, etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Iranian adventure and, if I hadn't been on a tour, would not have reached as many wonderful attractions in the time available. Nothing was too much trouble for Aliye, our guides and drivers, and our small group met many friendly Iranians. Prior to the tour I was in Tehran for a couple of days by myself and had a great time exploring. The only scary thing was crossing the road! Thanks for a great time and I hope to return

Comment: Dear Aliye, Everything was perfect. Thank you so much for your professional preparing our stay in Iran. Kind regards Chris
The trip to Iran was memorable. I was especially pleased to witness the remembrance celebration of the death of the son of Prophet Mohammed. The agency staff was very helpful, and equally knowledgeable. So too were the tour guides and driver. However, the guide in Tehran left me at the airport because he said that the driver was tired. I did not realise how tired I was, having not slept for almost 24hours, and missed the flight, and had to pay for another fare. I later learned that his action was unlawful, because I have an American Passport.I enjoyed the tour with him, and taking me to a carpet shop on my request, but leaving me was unacceptable. If I visited Iran again I would use this agency, and the same guide-not in Tehran, but suggest a better itenirary.

I really enjoyed my trip to Iran, from the rich culture and many millenia of history, to the very friendly and welcoming people who made my travels all the more memorable. My expectations were definitely exceeded by both the historical monuments such as Persopolis and Agha Bozorg Mosque, and by the delightful cultural experiences such as exploring Vakil Bazaar in Shiraz and the eating delicous Fesenjān in Isfahan. Thank you to Ali & Aliye from PTA for organising my great Persian adventure!

My sister and I chose the Treasure of Persia Luxury tour, which departed i January 2014 as a private tour. Everything went without a hitch, from the visa issuance at the Iranian embassy (which Pars arranged), and all our many questions being answered very quickly by Aliye in the office, to every single sight being amazing. We had two guides, Sohail in Tehran, and Abdollah for the rest of the tour, and they were so very knowledgeable about Iran and open to discussions and slight changes to the itinerary, such as adding different sights in, as well as being wonderful guides. Every city on the tour was chosen well to give a nearly complete historical record of Iran; From Saryadz to Persepolis, to Esfahan and the shrine of Hafez. Oh, and then the food!!! The food and the sweets in Iran are delectable! Admittedly, we struggled with the massive plates of rice, but everything we ate was so tasty! We enjoyed every aspect of this tour, and would not hesitate to recommend your tours!! Thank you very much for such a wonderful stay, in a wonderful country!

Comment: I want you to know how very much my son, Chris Allen, and I enjoyed our recent tour in Iran. Our guides, Sarah (Tehran) and Mahmud (Shiraz, Yazd, Isfahan...), and our driver, Barzahd, are wonderful -- Sarah and Mahmud are so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, Barzahd is an excellent driver and navigator, and they're all personable and fun to be with.
For me, it was more than a tour - it was a journey into my heritage. My grandfather was from Yazd, and told me so many stories about his childhood in "the Pearl of the Desert." It was an unforgettable experience.

Comment: I just wanted to say thank you for organising the excellent trip I had around Tehran and for assisting me in receiving my visa. It's always comforting to have someone waiting at the airport at the agreed time which for me in the past has been a problem with other companies so many thanks for perfect time-keeping not only at the airport but for all the other elements of my itinerary. The hotel was in a good area with all the amenities I needed during my stay within easy walking distance. The staff were also very friendly and informative. I really enjoyed the city tour your provided for me. All the stops were very interesting and provided me with plenty of photo opportunities. As a lover of food, the lunch stop as part of the tour was superb! I shall of course be recommending your services to all of my friends & colleagues who are considering a visit to Iran in the near future. Once again many thanks.

Comment: The Glance of Persia Tour has exceeded our expectations. While booking this trip and before we traveled to Iran, my wife and I were a little bit worried and questioning if we are doing the right thing by traveling to Iran. When we arrived to Iran, our worries were gone and it was a very enjoyable and unforgettable experience. The people are very friendly, most of the young citizens speak English language and we could get directions and answers very easily. The archaeological places, museums and gardens are very impressive. Places we visited and left a great impression are Crown Jewels Museum & Sa'ad Abad Complex (Tehran), Persepolis & Necropolis, Imam Square (Isfahan). Travel Agent Key to Persia PTA: While trying to organize our Iran trip and while trying to get answers, PTA was the fastest to reply and their online chat option was very helpful. At the same time their price was very competitive and much lower than the other companies. During the trip, the travel guides were very professional and the agency took care of all our hotel bookings and flight bookings and around 95% of the time met or exceeded our expectation. We do highly recommend this agency and definitely will use them if we decide to visit Iran another time. Our 9 days vacation was very well planned, smooth and free of any problems.

Comment : I would be very happy to write a follow-up letter to our tour. I and the other members of the group all had a wonderful time, all thanks to your excellent help and the professionalism and organization of the Pars Agency. I can offer nothing but praise for all of your persistent help over the many years it took me to get the visa, and I was delighted with how well-run and comfortable our tour was. Both of our guides, Bahare and Mehdi, were excellent, well-informed, and a pleasure to spend time with. I hope that the recent, encouraging communication between our governments may eventually lead to an opening in Iran. Your country is full of incredible sights and too sadly overlooked by tourists. I think Pars is in a very good position to benefit when the flood of tourists inevitably descend on Iran.

Comment :Many thanks to Aliye and to Pars Tour Agency for organizing a fantastic tour for us in Iran. Special thanks to our new friends in Iran – Ibrahim (our driver) and Amir (our guide) who made the trip even more memorable. Iran is one of the most beautiful places I have visited – 5000+ years of continuous civilization, the magnificent Persepolis, the beautiful Naskh e jahan in Esfahan, the poetic alleys of Shiraz, the unique architecture of Yazd, the ancient villages of Chak Chak and Abanyeh – the memories of these will never fade. The people of Iran are amazingly friendly – I have rarely met such hospitable people in the world. I will definitely return to Iran soon for another vacation and I strongly urge anyone who hasn’t visited Iran to visit it as soon as you can.

This was my first visit to Iran and I applied for a short trip, but in the end I discovered that five days were not enough for me since Iran has a lot to see and the more you know about the country, the more you'd like to visit in depth.

Comment : Thank you so much for everything. I had a wonderful and very memorable trip to Iran. Aliye Jafari was wonderful to work with in answering all of my questions and helping with all of the details, from answering questions, visa processing, bookings, and also helping me to receive my delayed baggage from the airline. This was one of the best trips I have ever had. I found the Iranian people to be very friendly and helpful. I was amazed at how much there was to see in the country and how much our group was actually able to visit in 12 days.

Comment :One thing I must say to you now: The BEST, BEST, BEST is your people. Till know Iran people we thought that Sirian and Jordan peoples were the most kindly and the best in the world. Because as I told you before, we know more than one hundred countries. Now, we love your people. In this moment I think that we preferred to have more time talking with the people than spend time to see mosques, and so on...The highs moments in this trip were when we talked with Iran people.
Comment : My friend and I we had a great time in sharing our days in Iran; we do not expect such a variaty of cultures, landscapes, foods, histories. But what we really appeciated the most is the charming hospitality of people, their dignity and their love to their belonging country. This really makes you, Iranian, special and unique. People are always so curious to get closer to foreigners by giving us the opportunity to be authentically introduced to local daily life. We thank you for the chance to keep in touch with your country.
Comment : On the last day of our trip when we reached Tehran we were still amazed with our experience of both the people we had met and the places we had seen. We enjoyed every bit of our trip. The Pars agency was very helpful and organised the whole trip efficinetly. We will definitely return to Iran again.

Comment :My family including my wife and three daughters (all are adults) has traveled 18 countries of Asian to Europe from January to August of 2013 and has just come back to Korea. We had a very wonderful time for the past seven months. On the middle of the travel, we take two weeks of Pars Travel Agency service from April 10 to 24 while in Iran. For two weeks, we visited all the way of central Iran such as Shiraz, Ahvaz, Isphahan, Yazd, Kahan and Tehran. Pars Travel Agency provided very excellent professional service for us including all the accommodations, transportation and tour guiding service at the reasonable price. All my family greatly enjoyed and also appreciated of it. Especially, Shahram, the guide and Ali, the drive were very kind and greatly devoted for us. We regretted that we could spend more time in Iran because of the visa limit. We wish that we go to Iran again in the near time.

Comment :Thanks to Aliye and Hamed (Tehran) & particularly driver/guide Sajad for a fantastic 26 days journey all over Iran. Beautiful and varied country with rivers, mountains, forests, wheat fields and even snow. Very friendly and generous people. I was amazed at how the many many ethnic groups and religions are included and fully participate in society. Whilst the scenery and history may be great, it is the inherent friendliness and generosity of all Iranians that made this such a truly amazing and rewarding experience.\\r\\nAs a solo traveller I always felt completely safe and would recommend Iran and PARS travel to anyone

Comment : A first glance for a two weeks trip, to short of course. Once at Teheran we made our programm (Kashan, Isfahan, Shiraz) and I can tell that PTA was extremly reactive and efficient even at last minute. I\'ve a job in tourism in France and I would like my team to be such helpful with our customers. Travelling in Iran was really enjoyable, easy, full of friendly contacts with iranian people. We are already thinking about our next holidays in this beautiful country . Et pour les français et francophones qui hésitent encore à faire le voyage, sachez que l\'agence peut répondre à toutes vos interrogations en français et nous apporte ainsi une aide précieuse pour l\'organisation de notre séjour.
Comment : I had a perfect and unforgettable journey with Treasure of Persia program 5-17 Oct. All the amazing architecures with historical significance, beautiful natural scenes and exquisite handicrafts are beyond imagination you may have before arriving there. The professional service from PTA makes me feel at home along the journey. The local people are friendly and lovely. I miss the food and candy there a lot:)

Comment : Iran is a mysterious, historial country. The people of Iran is very friendly. All the patterns and cielings of mosques which we have visited are amazing. The sites of Posepolise, the colorful dressing of Abyaneh City, the traditional houses of Kashan, are very special. The PTA\\\'s services are very considerate, including of our tourguide. Wish more chinese could go to visit Iran.

Comment: Just came back from Iran, and I began to miss it quite much. I am asked by my friends what Iran impressed me most. My answer is people, even though the scenery, the history, and culture are by all means amazing. Also the tourguides from PTA, who are professional, helpful and energetic, are loved by everyone in our group. Wish I can come back to stay longer in this wonderful country!

Having traveled nearly 60 countries around the globe in my life, I swear Iran occupies a very special place in my heart. Its rich cultural and historical heritage, locals' hospitality, kindness and friendliness, and lots of wonders kept fascinating me throughout a 13-day adventure. The impressiveness still lingers... I took some 2,800 pictures, not only of magnificent scenery but also of the Iranian people with me, which all now remind me of precise moments. I was a solo traveler, but felt at home, safe and fun, thanks to famous Iranian hospitality. Every single day, I enjoyed chatting with many Iranians from little kids, curious teenagers to religious elders.
I'd also like to thank Pars Tourist Agency for efficiently (and patiently !) arranging a tailor made private tour that met my specific needs. My private guides in each city were all well-educated, knowledgeable, attentive and friendly, bringing me rewarding experiences.
I highly recommend a visit to Iran, and for sure I'LL BE BACK !
Comment: Very nice and interesting tour, with a clear view of the Iranian lifestyle. Travelling in Iran is really safe, and Iranian people are quite friendly, and curious about the opinions of tourists. Unforgattable.

Comment: I had a fabulous time in Iran as I am overwhelmed with the warmth and hospitality of the Iranian people and its rich culture. As opposed to what we hear of Iran, we get a new perspective of Iran as we feel welcome and we feel the friendliness of the people here in Iran. I would strongly recommend Iran to any travellers who want to visit and get exposed to the Iranian culture. It's an experience which I highly value and appreciate having been through Iran on my own!

Comment: Iran is a beautiful country full of beautiful and friendly people and a rich history. I am touched by the people's friendliness and hospitality. I totally enjoyed the experience here. And i will not hesitate to recommend Iran to all who want to have an unforgettable trip.
Comment: There is long and great relationship between china and Iran. when we get there, we meet nice and kind people and receive high welcome which beyond our imagination. thanks for the travel agency to give us such pleasant trip.
comment:I have wanted to come to Iran for some time and was therefore careful about which tour agency Iused. The trip has been outstanding; a great itinerary which gave a real flavour of Iran. The tourguide and driver were both highly knowledgeable, engaging and extremely welcoming. Ithoroughly enjoyed spending time with them; Iran is a big country and you end up spending a lot of time with your guide and driver. The two I had were fun to be with, well informed and delivered excellent service. They were very prepared to talk about all aspects of life in Iran and I learnt a tremendous amount. Much more than I would have done on my own or not as part of a tour. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending these tours; the accommodation is what you would expect (clean and safe) and the infrastructure in Iran far exceeded my expectations. Getting a visa can be a hassle but these guys can make the process a lot easier. Overall an excellent trip and I will be back.

comment:Iranian people are incredibly warm and friendly, always welcoming in Iran and to share meals and spend time with their families. They are very curious and interested to speak to us and show their immense hospitality. The best places to meet Iranians are in the park with their families and while sightseeing. Great experience, my favorite country
comment:Being cabin crew I´ve come across different ways of life and i can say Iran has a unique culture and a very rich history, which is sometimes misunderstood by the rest of the world. Shiraz is a place that offers a lot in terms of experiencing local customs and has plenty of historical sites, a treat for the more adventurous who are looking for a not so ordinary touristic spot. Thumbs up for the tour guides at Pars agency also who had a very good knowledge and never let a question unanswered, definately a memorable trip!

Comment:We have been treated with nothing but kindness and hospitality since the moment we crossed the border - and before, thanks to the Iranians on board our train from Istanbul - and we have been very glad to see that none of the negative stereotypes of Iran apply to the people in the country. Thank you for a wonderful trip.
Comment:Myself and my two friends have found Iran to be an enlightening experience. Despite what you might have been led to believe by western news media, Iran is an open, friendly place where people are hospitable, happy to talk with you and help you and who are very proud of their country\'s history. The infrastructure for tourism is good; roads and buses to get you around are cheap and reliable, hotels are good and can be very atmospheric and historic. The country has a lot to offer if you are interested in the ancient world, in history, architecture and art. We would recommend that you don\'t be put off and come and visit.
