Dear Intrepid World Traveler,

The first question you are sure to ask is, “Is it safe to travel to Iran?” I sincerely believe it is as safe as anywhere else in the world. After personally escorting several tours and sending many more, the most recent in February 2016, my confidence is undiminished.

We operated our first tour to Iran in 1999 and have had groups of all sizes since that time. Some experienced travelers are returning for a second trip. Through the years, the acceptance of Americans has, if anything, increased.

I have a challenge for you! See for yourself! Don’t let the naysayer diminish your enthusiasm. Many who say they will never go there themselves, do not have the resources, health, or most importantly, desire to make “the trip of a lifetime.” These are the exact words of one of the travelers on our November tour, and if you would like to talk with her or others who have traveled to Iran, we’ll gladly provide references. We’ll also provide links to photo albums including a very special one, by Paulette Lewis, Friendly Faces of Iran and some wonderfully detailed ones by David Lewis, Mary Flores and Scott Peck. Just ask!

A U.S. State Department travel warning exists for Iran, as it has for several years. Travel warnings are often political tactics, which can be considered much more desirable than other forms of conflict. Call me if you have any concerns. We’ll prepare you completely with briefing material on customs and regulations including attire.

Whether you have a specific interest in arts and crafts or wish to explore the archaeological and cultural aspects of Iran, this trip should appeal to everyone who has an appreciation for beauty. The intricacy of craftsmanship is a bedrock of Persian culture. April is the perfect (cooler) time to visit the southwest region. With our highly educated and very personable local guide by your side, your driver and his assistant, you can rest assured that you will have an amazing experience to treasure and share with others.
