As our name illustrates we work with Iran travelers. Most of the travel companies in the USA that arrange tours to Iran also organize tours to many other countries so Iran is just one country on their list of many travel options. But for us Iran is our only travel destination so all of our energy, knowledge, passion and expertise is focussed on Iran alone. Everybody who works with Irantraveler, whether Iranian or American, has spent years living and traveling in Iran, speaks Persian, and knows just about every inch of the country. So whether you are interested in Iranian cities, the vast deserts or spectacular mountains, the subtropical forests, classical Persian architecture, from the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf we are here to assist you in getting the most out of your trip to Iran. If you are interested in traveling with one of our group trips scheduled in 2015, or if you prefer to travel independently, please give us a call here in San Francisco at (415) 740-4476 or send us an email inquiry to info@irantraveler.net and let us share our expertise as well as our excitement about Iran with you.

 

May ADVENTURE tour IN IRAN

Iran Travel Adventure of Iran - May 2015

Since 1997 Irantraveler has been organizing tours to Iran that were geared mostly to students and teachers. These tours became quite popular over the years and many travelers who were not students or teachers started to contact us regarding the possibilities of their joining this particular tour for at least a couple of reasons, (1) These tours were adventure type tours that particularly appeal to well seasoned travelers and covered itineraries that were usually not part of the typical Iran tour offered by American travel agencies. These tours are land only tours and travel into the nomadic regions of Iran as well as ancient Mesopotamian archaeological sites. (2) Because these tours cost a fraction of what Iran tours normally cost in today's Iran travel market, i.e. just $1985 per person which includes comfortable Tourist Class hotel accommodations based on bed & breakfast and lunch or dinner depending on which is more convenient to the travel day, all land transportation within Iran, all airport transfers, all entrance fees to museums and archaeological sites and an English Speaking guide throughout the tour, these tours can fill up quickly. A single supplement is just $300 per person.

By encouraging travel between the USA and Iran we feel that our travelers will be a part of our goal which is to build bridges of citizen diplomacy through travel.

Please contact Jerry Dekker if you are interested in joining this tour.

Here is a relevant quote from Paul Theroux's latest book, "The Last Train to Zona Verde", that illustrates the point that we should not be content with just observing the world around us on a computer or TV screen but should instead venture out and experience it first hand.

"If the internet were everything it is cracked up to be, we would all stay home and be brilliantly witty and insightful. Yet with so much contradictory information available, there is more reason to travel than ever before: to look closer, to dig deeper, to sort the authentic from the fake; to verify, to smell, to touch, to taste, to hear, and sometimes--importantly---to suffer the effects of this curiosity."

Some comments From recent travelers to Iran:

"Jerry Dekker’s vast knowledge of and passion for the culture and people of Iran, as well as his enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge and experiences, make him invaluable to anyone curious about Iran and hoping to travel this historic and culturally important country. His very reasonably priced trips take the mystery out of getting travel visas and making arrangements to travel there. Better yet, his clients visit as many or more destinations, and stay at the same top hotels and restaurants, offered by larger companies that charge two to three times as much. Most important, his trips clear up all misconceptions about Iran and leave his clients with a deep appreciation for the graciousness and hospitality of the Iranian people."

"In short, I urge you to visit Iran with Jerry and his team. The country and its people are amazing and like me, Im sure you'll feel at home right away, and find yourself wondering why you didnt do it earlier. The Iranians are amazingly friendly and welcoming and the sites are second to none. In short, you can trust Jerry to put together a wonderful trip to a wonderful and fantastic country. A full 5 star performance all around. Thanks a million Jerry for making a travel dream come true!"

- Ron Kennedy, San Diego, CA - April 2012
I recently returned from my first trip to Iran and have to say it was the most amazing place I have ever visited. After having searched many travel companies for tours that would appeal to my interests and also accommodate my schedule, I ran across Jerry’s website, www.irantraveler.net. I called Jerry and quickly realized that he was the one person who could help me organize a trip that would work for me. Needless to say, that was best decision I could have made. More
