Iran has been one of the safest,easiest and most interesting countries I have visited and I have travelled alot. The Iranian people are one of the most polite and friendiest people in the world. People here are geniunely interested in meeting you as a guest to their country. The women are very educated and liberated in the fact that they work and are able to walk in the streets after dark in safety. Iran truely has been a wonderful surprise and a pleasure to travel. I will certainly spread the word about the misconceptions people hold in Australia concerning the Iranian people and their culture.

Comments: It may take some time to get used to ta'arof, and to get used to the traffic, and to find the delicious food that you know is out there, but you'll be helped along the way by the incredibly generous and friendly Iranians. The rewards of travelling in Iran are enormous, and the difficulties exaggerated. I found it one of the easiest places to travel, mostly because of the people, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Iran: Wonderful country with large variety in climate and nature; Woods, mountains, desserts, lakes and seas. I have enjoyed looking around a lot while traveling, hiking and sightseeng. Iranians: Wonderful, gentle, helpful and generous people. I believe there is no people like the Iranians; there is a lot that many can learn on that behalf. Vacation: I was quite unaware what Iran was all about before deciding to go. I did do some reading to familiar myself to know what to expect. That actually led me to quite some expectations. So far my expectations have been endlessly surpassed.

The people are so calm and not shouting in the streets and so, its cool to visit this place, I like the ancient buildings but there is only one thing I didnt like is the way hoe they drive, is difficult to cross the streets, but hopefully it will become better and better.

Comments: Except a rubbery in Esfahan (stolen camera) until now I met many friendly and helpful people. Anyway, as an individual tourist I didn't feel save all the time because due to social and economic problems here I know that tourists are attractive because they always have to take a lot of cash with them. As an interesting cultural experience I would advise my friends in Germany to go to Iran. There's a big difference between the bad impression of the politics in this country that we have and the many many nice and friendly people.

Comments: The Holy Land of Persia holds the roots of monotheistic religion. King Cyrus practiced religious, linguistic and cultural tolerance across his vast empire. It was he who ordered that the Temple in Jerusalem be built. It was he who supplied the materials, the treasures and the builders. It is good to be reminded of this now in times of misunderstanding and intolerance. The Persian people are wonderfully civilized and cultured with the best of the old and the new.

La barriere de la langue est toutefois problematique, meme j ai pu rencontrer pas mal de gens qui parlaient anglais, notamment parmi les jeunes. Ainsi j ai pu avoir des echanges frequents et tres interssants avec de jeunes iraniens. ils me posent de tres nombreuses questions sur la France et en retour je recois beaucoup d eclairage sur la vie dans cette Republique islamique. La plupart des iraniens se montrent reellement desireux de dialogues ou font tout simplement preuves de gentillesse et d hspitalite. L une des activites quotidiennes consiste a boire le the avec les gens qui me le proposent dans la rue.

Comments:   People in France think that Iran is a dangerous country to go to, mainly because of the international context. Unfortunately they don't have the opportunity to talk to real Iranian people living in this country. We discovered very friendly people in the touristy areas, people willing to improve their language skills or to chat with foreigners about their own customs. Discussions were always of high interest to us because it enabled us to know better local habits. We've also had the chance to get invited for some diners and tasted Iranian food out of the restaurants. it's great value and we really enjoyed it. Persian culture is very ancient and it would be nice for people abroad to be able to discover it and be aware that Iranians are no fundamentalists but open-minded persons. And I hope you will always remain as curious about foreigners as today ! Anne-Valerie and Matthias

Comments: Before I came to Iran a lot of my friends have been already traveling here, therefore I was aware with the openness and friendliness of Iranians. But I was still surprised to notice hospitability and approach that Iranians have. Iran is very beautiful country, with rich history and with friendly people. It has a lot to offer to a tourist, especially on the human touch side. I will definitely recommend Iran as a tourist destination to my friends.

Comments: Together with my fianc�, I am traveling through Iran. We are not with a group, just the two of us. Therefore, we are very dependent of the help and hospitality of the Iranian people to show and help us around. Our experience is that the Iranian people are extremely helpful. Even if we do not ask them directeley, if they see us looking around, they come to us and ask if they can help. This is our experience with all the people, no matter grade of education or age. Another feature we have noticed is the curiosity of the Iranian people. They ask a lot of questions, want to know a lot about our country, our lives and habits in Europe. They combine this with their wish to practice their foreign languages which leads to nice conversations. Sometimes however, they are SO helpful, that they give an answer, even if they don't know. We are enjoying our stay very much!

Length: 10days  Occupation: Manager  Education: MBA, Masters
Comments: Despite the fact that I was upset when my whiskey bottle was taken away by a security-check officer at the airport arrival gate, so far my experience with most Iranian people has been great! Not only hotel people and travel agents, but ordinary people walking down on the street are also helpful and kind. Compared to many cities in other Middle Eastern countries at the same economy level, I have found that most Iranian cities (streets and touristy areas) were cleaner. This is same for most restaurants and hotel rooms. So, I think that I have had a good value from traveling in Iran. I hope my opinion of this memo will help you to decide making a trip to Iran someday.

I came to Shiraz early this morning and already at breakfast an Iranian couple here on vacation invited me to come with them to Persepolis! It's quite remarkable that friends from home ask me if I feel safe and tell me to be careful here, I feel much safer here (even in grubby back alleys) than I do at home! I encourge everybody to go to Iran, all the current issues are between governments, not between people! The people will want to get to know you and welcome you and you will probably have one of the best travels in your life!

Iranian HospitalitySaid
Location: Oman   Occupation: Real Estate
Comments: Shiraz and its outskirts is a historical city with a lot of interesting places one can visit.There is the Tomb of Darius the Great and Zoroaster all within easy rich from Shiraz and close to each other, Then there us Paresepolis where the Palaces of Tachara and Apadana are located. The list is endless. And for those who like to Ski, there is Shakarak which is Located in Sepidan(Hardakun). The city itself is nice and the weather is good. However and inspite of all the advancement Credit cards are not accepted at all and I know of a few people I have met and who have had to cut short their stay(Including me) because of that, Another problem is getting around or asking for directions because of the language problems. Very few people speak a second language, whether it is Arabic or English or French or someother language like Spanish.

Occupation: student   Education: student
Comments: as i am a single woman travelling on my own, without speaking the language, it is more difficult than as a man, but nevertheless it is a great experience and the more you get out, the more streetwise you get. during daylight, you could probably go on your own (but it could take time to figure out where and how), but as soon as it gets dark, you should have someone with you. as a whole, it is really worth it to go with a travel guide or a travel group (as a single woman). by the way, so far i only now tehran and have seen shiraz, and can really recommend shiraz as a more green, less stressy place. not sure if i will come again to iran (because the world is quite big, and because - at the moment - sometimes i find the political and economic situation and the situation for woman frustrating (although the latter is better than in other muslim countries and could be worse)), but most people i meet are quite happy that a foreigner is here and are really friendly. so take time to have a tea!

However, it is safe and good to travel as a woman, but you must research a lot about the local culture between men and women, in order to avoid unpleasant experiences. That said, Iranians in general are very hospitable and happy to see people from other countries in Iran, they are curious to see where you are from, and they are proud of their different cities. Not everyone speaks English (much less Spanish), but those who do (and even those who don't) will always be willing to give you good advice and help - very appreciated when traveling alone. Last, but not least - Iranian traditions are quite interesting, especially the one that occurs a week before Norooz, where people jump over fires in the street to get rid of bad luck from the past year, you should try not to miss it! (But make sure to have a place to stay, because in Norooz, hotels and buses are very full). Pars Travel Agency offers professional service and excellent

Comments: It takes little time to realize how curious and hospitable irani people are towards foreigners. This gives a very comfortable feeling about travelling in iran - we are constantly the center of attention, which brings many opportunities to communicate with the locals. To top this off, the persian sites and architectures are wonders that will honnestly have you wonder why you didn't come to Iran before.

Comments: We have enjoyed a wonderful stay in Iran in general with the highlights being the Tehran museums and the day spent with Pars tours visiting Persepolis, Naqsh-E Rostam and Naqsh-E Rajab, and then Parsargadae. Visiting these anciet sights accompanied by a knowledgeable guide and a first rate driver made all the difference and brought ancient history to life. All we saw was comparable to ancient Egypt and the Roman towns of Algeria and Morocco. We commend Iranians on their hospitality, warmth and kindness. Iran should be promoted as a superb cultural tourist destination. The country has a very bad press in the West and this is wrong so we will do all we can to promote your country back in South Africa.

Comments: I consider the Iranians as very welcoming, friendly and open-minded. In every city we visited we had the opportunity to talk to the people, even be invited. And of course the architecture - mosques, bazaars, palaces and houses built with bricks or mud. Of course, drinking tea and smoking ghilyane in a nice chaikhane is worth a journey!

Comments: Unfortunately, is Spain the idea of Iran is not the real image of the country. On tv we only see the bad news and iran looks like dangerous. Once here tourist can see that appart of the great monuments, and the iteresing history of the country, and the diversity of people, also you can meet really talkative, open and helpfully people. (and nice food also!!) The only bad thing is traffic, really caotic, but at the end, that`s exotic for foreigners...

Comme nts: Although we are only a few days in Iran yet, we absolutely enjoy thehospitality and friendliness of the Iranian people. We don�t speak the language, but everybody on the street is willing to help us and we never had any problem to find our destination. We feel like everybody on the street wants to take care for us. We were already invited to some people�s home and to enjoy dinner together. Besides this eye opener compared to the Belgians� closed attitude towards other people, the cultural heritage and natural richness are awesome. We enjoy Iran completely, we advise everyone to come and discover yourself. Cis and Tine

Comments: Ik heb Iran leren kennen als een land met 2 gezichten. Aan de ene kant doet het land denken aan de idee dat wij in het westen hebben van Iran; een sterk religieus en fanatiek islamitisch land. Dit beeld klopt slechts gedeeltelijk. Het is duidelijk dat dit het beeld is dat de overheid en de religieuze leiding opwekt. Aan de andere kant is het Iran van de meeste Iraniers een land met vriendelijke mensen die zo gastvrij en goedhartig zijn dat wij ons er als westerling vaak ongemakkelijk bij voelen. Overal waar ik kwam maakten de (jonge) mensen me duidelijk dat ze genoeg hadden van de beperkingen en (godsdienstige) verplichtingen. Ik heb de Iraniers leren kennen als mensen die vooruit willen en net als iedereen willen leven in een vrije en progressieve maatschappij. Iran heeft vele schitterende sites en plaatsen, maar Esfahan heeft de grootste indruk op me gemaakt.

Comments: I was told, even at the consulate, that going to Iran as a young solo female traveller would be very difficult, but indeed it has been easier and more comfortable than travel in many other Asian countries. The Iranian people are generally very warm and wonderful people, hospitable in ways that would be almost unheard of back home. Iran itself is a country of mystery and beauty, and outside the cities you can truly find the roads less travelled.

Comments: La impresion general de Iran es muy buena. La gente es muy hospitalaria y esta pendiente de ayudar al visitante sin necesidad de recibir algo a cambio. El patrimonio historico es muy interesante y, por lo general, se encuentra muy bien conservado. Tambien las comidas iranies son excelentes, aunque quiza repetidas en cuanto a sus ingredientes. Los medios de transporte son acordes con las necesidades y tanto la oferta como los precios estan bien. En el plano social, pese al interes de los iranies por conocer algo mas de los paises de origen de los visitantes, echo en falta un mayor contacto con los jovenes y especialmente con las mujeres, que quiza por las costumbres religiosas no estan dispuestas a conversar con el visitante. Me gustaria que el grado de independencia que tienen los hombres fuera tambien un derecho de las mujeres porque, en pleno siglo XXI, no se entiende que deban ir vestidas de negro de los pies a la cabeza. Creo que la religion pertenece a la esfera intima de las personas y no deberia intere

Comments: Iran is very interesting country. It is something completely different that we saw before. Everything is ok, peoples are fine and wants to help but they don't speak English enough good. Iran needs more tourist information offices like in other world country. For me it is very difficult to read Farsi language, but I will learn for my next visit, promise. In your country gasoline is very cheap, so pollution in big cities is Iran's biggest problem. All in all very nice country.

Comments: Having traveled a number of other places, we can truly say that Iran is at least as easy, safe and enjoyable a country as any tourist (especially backpacking) could imagine. Yes, the people are welcoming and most of them are genuinely helpful, but they are also far more open-minded, interested and critical about things around the globe, than the one-dimensional image created by western media and prejudice would make one believe. We suggest everyone to come and explore this beautiful country and its people so unspoiled by mass-tourism.

Comments: Before my departure, I'd heard so much about the Iranian hospitality, but I wasn't all that convinced. However, as my travel proceeds now, I can't believe how wonderful people here are. I was invited to some homes, taken to fascinating places only known to the locals. Many people don't hesitate to give me a hand when I'm in need of help, speaking English or not. So far my best memory was in Isfahan, during the Ashura festival, when I was interviewed by the Iranian national TV at a site where they performed the rituals. Really unforgettable!!! I love Iran!

It has been a great pleasure for us to experience Iran and hear the charming roll of the Persian language. The the richness of its monuments and beauty of the parks in the historic cities of Esfahan and Shiraz is second only to the the beautiful character of the people we met. With a few kind words, you will be greeted with a smile. Inchallah, we will return to Iran for another stay. Khayli Mamnun! Khoda Hafez!

Comments: The culture of Iran surprised me in a positive sense. The hospitality towards foreigners is warmharthed and real. As a visitor respect is paid in a nice way; if you want to ask something people are friendly to help. Surprisingly, in between the large cities, there are little vacancies for hotels, so traveling is from one large city to another. The proudness and politeness of Iran people is a very challenging.

Comments: We have both found Iranian people very hospitable, welcoming, generally honest (the taxi drivers tend to double their prices). This was true especially in less 'touristy' places such as sanandaj where people seemed truly happy to see us. So far, our favorites are the bazaar in sanandaj, frut juices in tabriz, everything and especially the atmosphere in Isfahan. We haven't seen everything we wanted in shiraz yet but we already had a great trip to Persepolis and two delicious meals- one in the hammam restaurant and the other with the nomads under their tent. Personally, I would definitely like to come back as the time we have (three weeks) is far to little to see everything we want.

Comments : Ich habe bis jetzt 3 Tage im Iran verbracht. Die Gastfreundschaft, die Hilfsbereitschaft und das uns entgegengebrachte Interesse der Iraner ist beispielhaft. Auch wenn manchmal Verstaendigungsprobleme auftraten, so waren die Menschen immer bemueht jemanden zu finden, der dolmetschen konnte. Auch in einem Fall als eine Rechnung in einem Restaurant nicht bezahlt werden konnte, weil nicht ausreichend Kleingeld mitgefuehrt wurde, reichte ein Verweis auf unser Hotel um das Problem zu loesen. Erstaunlich ist auch, dass uns auf der Strasse von wildfremden Menschen, die englisch oder deutsch sprachen immer wieder freundlich Hilfe angeboten wurde oder auch nur nach unserer Herkunft gefragt wurde. Insgesamt hat man es relativ leicht als Tourist in diesem Land.
