Do yourself a favour and visit Iran. And if you would like a smooth, inclusive and carefree experience contact SurfIran.
Everything has been great, Sarah helped us from day 1, there were a couple of small misunderstanding/miscommunication on behalf of the Australian operator, and Sarah went above and beyond to sort them out.
The guides were fantastic, we spent a day with Sarjat in Tehran, followed by the rest of the tour with Arya. I will always treasure the memories I’ve made with these people and all the knowledge they’ve shared with us. Sarah called everyday to check that everything was good. I was very impressed by the level of attention.
Hotels were great, clean, comfortable and top quality service.
Definitely an excellent experience.

It may take a bit of effort to get to Iran but once there get ready for a really great experience. Tehran is bustling and surprisingly modern. Isfahan is a gem.
I found Surfiran to be a knowledgeable, reliable and approachable tour operator.

Twelve Greeks friends visited Iran from 18 of April till 2 of May. We returned home just a few days ago and a part of our heart is still there; this is quite natural. We came back physically tired but brim-full of images, colours, scents, and melodies; above all, deeply impressed by the kindness, warmth, and hospitality of your compatriots. We feel lucky that we had chosen SURFIRAN travel agency to organize our trip. In particular, we would like to thank:
1. Miss Elham Babaee for the excellent trip she organized for us. The schedule she prepared included visits to very beautiful and equally important places from historical point of view. Places that bear the imprint of your civilization. She had also the kindness to insert in the schedule whatever we asked her. The fact that she offered us a bus of 30 seats made our trip very comfortable, given that most of us were over fifty years old. The hotels she chose were in general very good. She was also taking care of us during the whole trip and arranged on the spot any matter that arose. We apologize if we wearied her with many requests or embarrassed her for any reason.
2. Our guide, Miss Fatemeh Heydari, who made us love your country as she was talking about its history and answering to our innumerable questions. She also presented to us some of the best aspects of modern Iran and helped us visit some excellent restaurants and coffeeshops. She has been tireless and addressed always with a warm smile any contingency. When we said goodbye at Teheran airport, she was already our friend Miss Fatemeh.
3. Our chauffeur Mr Mahdi. Unfortunately, I was not keen to be informed of his family name. He was driving carefully and safely during the whole journey and always kept the bus clean and had available fresh water and coffee for us.
4. Last but not least, we thank Dr. Mahdi Eshragi because his agency always supported us whenever we needed you and his main concern was to please his guests and not how to earn more money.

I recommend the train tour by private train across the Alborz mountains. You leave in the morning and come back in the evening. Landscapes, mostly mountain views, are beautiful. The train stops at some stations, and meals are served in the train. English speaking guide. I was solo traveller, but it is suitable also for families.
Organized by Surfiran.

I enjoyed my trip once initial poor organization of the organizers were compensated by personal touch of our tour guide.
The organizers should check travelers flight schedule to make sure they are supported at the time of their arrivals at the airport. I had no way of contacting anyone outside of normal business hours when I arrived.
I was asked at the hotel lobby to call a number at the time of my arrival, but that person had no specific instructions for me to help me connect with the rest of the travelers and the tour guide next day.

Dear David,

We beg your pardon for not being able to meet all your expectations during your trip to Iran.

A lot of the changes you observed on your trip were due to the change of the train tour to a bus tour.

We are sorry once again for all the changes and hope to be able to compensate next time.

Best,
Elham
