This is to recommend Iran Exploration as a perfect company to travel with! From the first and to the last minute on the Iranian soil I could feel support and care. All questions answered. All transfers on time. All concerns taken care of. Let's kick in some personalities: Mahsa, the coordinator, is a very positive and responsive person, at the stage of making a decision did a great job to give a correct picture of what to expect! Maryam, the city guide, is a very positive and outgoing lady who handled all the transfers and was a nice conversation partner. Farhad, the mountain guide, is a humble and profound guy with a charming smile, who did a flawless job delivering our whole group to the summit and back. A kind of guide I like, not pushy, giving just as much slack as I need to make the encounter with the mountain an intimate experience. It was in large part because of the 'Iran Exploration' that I enjoyed this trip so much. I don't usually go to places twice, but here I am thinking of going there again for a ski tour and if I do it'll be 'Iran Exploration' who I am going to turn to.

The Guides provided by the company were kind, proffessional and tried at all cost to comply our wishes for the trip. a special thanks to Mehdi and Farhad Rashvand on our akklimatisation trek. We had great dinners on our transportation days, but the cost seemed a little prizey compared to all the other times we bought food ;-) on our main goal, which was Mount Damavand, again a special thanks to Farhad Rashvand. every man got to the summit and back again with good energy. Farhad made so much great food for us, and worked hard! For city tours, and a lot of local translation were we guided by Maryam Haghparast, so kind and a great guide. it has been an incredible trip were our prejudices (from an european view, Denmark) has been proved very wrong, and thanks for that!

Alam Kuh and Damavand in July. Four friends traveling to Iran for the first time for mountaineering. Great programme where everything was carried out professionally. We felt treated well already before arrival by Mahsa. The offered programme was very detailed in every way, the visa was easy to acquire with the help we received, and the price was absolutely fair. Upon arrival we were picked up by Maryam, a skilled and experienced guide of Tehran. She took us to interesting places in the Iranian capital, and she quickly and smoothly made a special programme to us taking notice of our previous experiences in Tehran. Maryam really play guiding by ear and listens to what is important to her guests. Fluently English speaker. Our best recommendations! On the treks (including the three summits Lashgarak, Alam Kuh and Damavand) we were guided by chief guide Farhad. A super experienced guide with more than 150 summits of Damavand (and he has stopped counting the number of summits of Alam Kuh). Farhad arranged the treks, guided us and cooked for us. We were continuously surprised of the dishes he was able to make us in this remote environment. We helped pitching the tent, but other than this, we were not meant to do anything ourselves. The service was 100%, and Farhad was always (without any exceptions) in a good mood and with great energy. Almost fluently English speaking. Our respect for this man just rose and rose during the trip. Our very best recommendations. Assistant guide Mehdi was also a great help to our trip, watching our tents while we summited Lasgharak and Alam Kuh, and helping Farhad cooking and preparing tea. Mehdi doesn't speak much English, but his great spirit and happy mood made communication easy. Thank you for your time, Mehdi. Or best recommendations. Other people to thank for this very well and professionally planned trip are the managers Reza and Ramin. They followed us in different parts of our trip to make sure we had a good time. Also Farshad for helping us here and there. We give our very best recommendations for Iran Exploration and their people - we always felt safe and welcome. Thank you.

We were a group of 5 who had a tour with IranExploration in June. The trekking in Lar and Damavand peak was amazing. Very professional team and well planned timetable. We also had some cultural tour added in the great cities of Iran. They take care of everything so you feel comfortable.
