We spent two weeks in Iran and loved our time there. SURFIRAN were fantastic to work with and helped us plan an amazing itinerary. We wanted to plan and book with a local company to get local knowledge and put our money on the ground there instead of going through a larger international tour company.

The lovely people in the office were helpful and prompt with our questions. Our two guides were fantastic. Sajad, our guide in Tehran, is a friendly knowledgable guy. We had a ball and enjoyed his company. Our guide in other cities, Mustafa, is a real character and expert. Both are warm like most people we met in Iran.

Iran is an amazing place. And, while it's history, culture and food are clear highlights, the one thing that keeps shining through is that war,th of the people. We had many experiemces of people's hospitality and just wanting to welcome us to Iran.

Thank you SURFIRAN for showing us you great country.

My husband and I just returned from our tour a few days ago so every experience we had is still fresh in our minds.

SURFIRAN arranged the tour just for the two of us. Though we had an itinerary, there was flexibility. From the day we stepped into Iran to the day we left, we were given very personalised service. Sarah, Sajad and Alireza are people we will long remember.

Never have we ever been to a country (and we gave been to more than a hundred) where we were greeted with warmth almost everywhere we went! People on the streets, in the museums, on the trains, at the airport; everywhere. The traffic in Tehran may seemed chaotic but it is somehow it flowed smoothly.

Out of bustling Tehran there's so much to feast the eyes. The ancient sights, the old buildings, the bazaars, the museums, the traditional accomodations, the desert and not forgetting the food! With two days extention on our own, we had 11 wonderful days in Iran!

I was in Iran from 1 to 15 April 2017. Everything from hotel to guided tours was arranged by SURFIRAN. I traversed from Khoy in west Azerbaijan all the way to Shiraz, covering 10 cities. I went there with low expectation but came back with cherished memory awed by food, people and architectures fused with rich history and tradition. Thanks to SURFIRAN, everything from visa to transfer to stay went very well.

I will definitely use the same service if I ever visit Iran again.

I visited Iran on September 2016 with SURFIRAN. Iran is an amazing country with much to see and do for everyone, and it is made even more enjoyable by the friendly & knowledgeable tour guides & locals.

We organized a 3 weeks tour in Iran through SURFIRAN. SURFIRAN is a very Professional travel agency who understands their customers needs and expectations.

Our stay in Iran was just fabulous, the program built by SURFIRAN was great, we have seen many and many very interesting sites and locations.

Our guides, Maryam and Mr Hor have a deep knowledge of Iran culture and they spent a lot of time to explain us everything in a very valuable way.

Maryam speaks a very good french. We really enjoyed our stay in Iran and I recommend very strongly SURFIRAN as travel agency if you plan to go to Iran. SURFIRAN makes life easy for you during your stay.

Our 3 weeks in Iran were just fabulous, we really enjoyed our stay. SURFIRAN, a very Professional travel agency, set up for us a very nice tour , the program respected our expectations, we have seen many and many very interesting sites and locations.

We had a good team, 2 guides: Maryam and Mr Hor who have a deep knowledge of Iran culture, Maryam speaking french, very fluent by the way, explained us everything in a very valuable way And Mr Hor speaking only Iranian was accountable to select the best places to have drinks, meals, shopping.

If you go to Iran I would recommend SURFIRAN as travel agency , they will make your happy by discovering this country.

Un pays magnifique , des sites et des paysages à coupler le souffle. L'accueil des iraniens est à recommander à beaucoup d'autres: conviviaux , agréables, prêts à aider…

Notre périple d'abord classique Téhéran, Kashan, Ispahan , Yads et Shiraz sans oublier Persépolis. Ensuite Mashhad , le nord et la mer caspienne puis le retour à Téhéran à travers le massif de l'Arlborz…inoubliable. Cet itinéraire permet d'appréhender la grande variété des paysages de l'Iran et éviter de penser qu'il n'y a qu'un désert.

Pour l'agence un sans faute , très bonne organisation et réactivité . Une guide parlant français Maryam très compétente , un chauffeur extra, un accompagnement de tous les instants sans pesanteur. Ils nous ont permis de découvrir des lieux que seuls nous aurions ignorés.

A recommander nous aimerions y retournés et bien évidemment si cela se fait ce sera avec la même agence.

I had an amazing time in Iran – it is such a wonderful, beautiful country with welcoming people, breathtaking sights, and delicious food!

My guide (and driver!), Ahmad, took me to all the best places, and the whole trip felt more like traveling around with a friend than with a guide.  I also met a few of his friends in Tehran, and especially enjoyed wandering around and exploring the city with them!

“I was excited to visit Iran as part of the Mongol Rally, a road journey from the United Kingdom to Mongolia. My guide was Ahmad from Iran Tourism Centre. We met in Tehran and we spent the day exploring the sights of Tehran. He was keen to understand the things I was interested in and thus tailor my experience accordingly. This, for me, included visiting the Grand Bazaar, Golestan Palace, Azadi Tower and Milad tower. Ahmad was very knowledgeable and was keen to answer questions about Iran’s history and also it’s interesting present, he is a very personable person and really enjoys showing Iran to the world.

Ahmad also accompanied me as I journeyed east, we visited Gorgan and Golestan. He was able to introduce me to several different local cuisines which were always excellent. We visited towers and waterfalls, hiked in the forest near Gorgan. The hospitality of Iran was wonderful and we met many people along the way which Ahmad helped with translations, stopping for a meal with one family we met!

Due to his knowledge I was able to visit some very rare and unexplored locations in Eastern Iran including the Shrine of Khalid Nabi(CHECK SPELLING!) which was fascinating and had some breathtaking views. Ahmad was also able to help with the Mongol Rally, helping myself and other teams with paperwork and technical issues. I felt I truly gained a deep understanding of Iran’s culture and its people. I look forward to returning again and exploring Iran further!”

Last month my friend and I had a one day tour in Tehran with Ahmad and Ghazale. It started literally several hours after we arrived by air overnight, and we were pretty tired. We wondered how we would get through the day. Then we met Ahmad and Ghazale at the hotel, and we were immediately re-energized. They had an active fun day planned for us, which started with a ride on the Metro and a visit to the Tehran Bazaar. They introduced us to products we had never seen before, such as freshly picked pistachios and a delicious drink called khak-e-shir, which I enjoyed again later in our trip. We visited Golestan Palace, which was not on the itinerary for our extended tour, and then ended the day with a trip to the mountains north of town and a wonderful meal in a nice little restaurant. The food there was very good, and we so much enjoyed Ahmad's and Ghazale's company. We found them to be well-organized and thoughtful in the planning of our day. They took the time to check out our itinerary for our long tour and made sure they introduced us to places and experiences we wouldn't have there. They were entertaining, informative, and helpful. It was a perfect way for my friend and me to begin our tour of Iran. I highly recommend both Ahmad and Ghazale to other travelers visiting Iran!

Salam Dr Mehdi Eshraghi,

I was one of the four ladies together with Prof Dr Rohany Nasir who went to Iran for the first time using your tour company. We had a good time throughout our holiday and wished we could have stayed longer. We were made welcomed by Prof Rohany's former students in Isfahan who invited us to their homes and showered us with Persian hospitality.

Thank you for giving us Maryam Hodaeian as a guide. She was very professional, efficient and at the same time receptive to the needs of four elderly ladies!! By the end of the holiday we became good friends and treat her like a daughter. We also had a good time with our driver Mohammad who drove us safely throughout the long journey and we were sad to say goodbye to him in Shiraz when we flew back to Tehran.

We love all the places we visited and especially your food!! Compared to Turkey and Morocco I love Persian food the most as there are so many varieties!! InsyaAllah we will go back to visit other parts of Iran. Next time can you include a portion of Azerbaijan as well? I will definitely recommend your tour company to friends and families who are going to Iran.

Sincerely,

Tengku Fauziah Hazizah Tg Othman

Just so glad we chose Iran as our destination, a short 5 day trip really impressed us. Such an amazing country! The people, the food, the culture, all just so charming! If you are tired of seaside sunshine and shopping and just want to experience something different, Iran is worth a visit. It will exceed all your expectations and imaginations in a good way. What's great about this country is when you are traveling in it; you can feel connected to the culture and history. The greatest thing happen to us in this journey is our excellent excellent tour guides! Ahmad and Ghazale. They are great tour guides and great friends. They've been very kind and helpful and so good at what they do. I can tell they are just so proud of their country and want to show everyone the best of Iran. Highly recommended. They are all professional, friendly and speak great English. It's a pity we didn't know them sooner! Otherwise we will be having a much better planned trip! So pity we don't have time for Isfahan. One thing to remind all the Chinese tourists is the food here is very different you might want to bring your laoganma with you, but worth trying anyway.

真的非常高兴这次选择了伊朗做为目的地,短短五天让我们印象非常深刻,这里的人民食物文化,风俗习惯都十分迷人,记得来前看过一篇帖子大概叫做如果异域有真名那么应该就是伊朗、这次来真的体会到了浓浓的异域风情,比如坐在地毯上吃饭,金碧辉煌的灯王墓,真的太多了!这和去海边去欧美是不一样的体验,有很不错的文化氛围,伊朗很安全甚至觉得很富裕,这次也很开心遇到了ahmad,mabas和ghazal这一群年轻小伙伴,真是特别棒的导游和朋友,一直热心帮助我们安排行程,不像我国只知道赚钱的导游,觉得他们对自己的国家很骄傲也很希望我们能在伊朗玩好,真的很推荐!靠谱有经验英文好,这次特别遗憾没有去成伊斯法罕但是下次再来就觉得在伊朗有了三个朋友!要说的是食物和我们差太多。。尝试要谨慎哦!觉得自由行还

是需要个导游的,看到听到的多的多!

This being my first trip to Iran, I was apprehensive yet excited about the country.But from the start, our guide Ahmad made sure that my fear was unfounded. As we travelled from Kerman back to Tehran with stops in Yazd, Shiraz, Esfahan and Kashan, he ably showed us the beauty of his country and the warm hospitality of his fellow Iranians. Aside from the must-see historical and religious sites such as Persepolis, he took us to each of the city bazaars and had us taste the various Persian dishes and desserts such as the faloodeh plus the fruits and nuts grown in Iran.

Having guided for around 6 years, Ahmad deftly drove us to the different places and even to some not in our itinerary such as the ancient mosque in Natanz and oldest cypress tree in Abarkuh. His command of English was good and so was his knowledge of the culture and history. He was very accommodating and prompt. We look forward to another visit to Iran, this time north of Tehran. It would be great if Ahmad would guide us again.

After deciding to ignore advice from many Australian friends, we arrived in Tehran to a very welcoming, friendly country. After 2 days in Tehran absorbing the sights and atmosphere we flew to Yazd where we were met by Ahmad, our guide/driver.

As we toured Yazd, Shiraz and Esfahan Ahmad offered great friendship, local knowledge, wonderful translating skills and a wish to make our trip as enjoyable and informative as possible. We enjoy a lot of free time in the evening to wonder the street and bazaars, never feeling unsafe.

Iran has shown itself to be a wonderful country offering many, many amazing monuments and historical sites, a great verity of food and local colour.
Ahmad encouraged us to indulge in local delicacres and introduced us to many new foods.
We would highly recommend as a safe, enjoyable, historic and welcommy destination.

“We had a great time for two weeks in Iran with Ahmad. He is very knowledgeable about his country. He speaks and understands English very well. He is an excellent driver (don't underestimate the value of this in Tehran). He knows a lot of people (don't under estimate this). Let him know what your interest are, and he will make sure you have a great time. Iran is not a scary place. My home town in Wisconsin is more dangerous that any place I saw in Tehran or any other place in Iran.”

Most we enjoyed the landscape and wildlife we saw, it was just amazing and not comparable with nature we found in Germany and Europe, one of my greatest experiences! Second we enjoyed the kindness of you guys (Mehdi, Negin and her family, and the two houses we stayed) it was like meeting family and friends :)

We really enjoyed the whole trip with you guys: the landscape and wildlife were fascinating. The organization by Surf Iran was perfect and well done, we are grateful all our wishes and ideas were considered in the best way. Our hosts Mahmoud, Azar and Negin were such friendly, hospitably and had best knowledge of the region and wildlife, good to had you! Furthermore it was so good to write with you and get some help even after our trip when we were on Qeshm and Bandar Abbas, thank you a lot!
Best wishes,

Everything was arranged very efficiently. Nothing went wrong. Our guide, Mostafa Farhadi, was remarkable. Not only was he a brilliant driver, but his knowledge of the culture, history and contemporary life of Iran was amazing. He also had superb contacts in all the places we visited.

He is clearly known and respected by many other guides, as well as by managers and owners of the hotels, restaurants and sites we visited. He managed to satisfy all our interests and to overcome every difficulty. Of course we were thrilled to experience the cultural treasures of this great country, but still the most treasured memories are of our encounters with Iranian people, Including some introductions that our friends had made beforehand.

Thank you for arranging everything.

Iran is a rich country in history, culture, flowers, fruits and nuts. People are very warm and friendly. Plenty of trees in city and town that provide shades. We had an inspiring time in Iran.

We are very pleased with Surfiran as the tour agent. They responded fast in all email communication. Sufficient information is provided timely. Our guide Mr Mustafa is professional and caring. We are grateful to his help when one of our members has to shorten the trip due to family matters.

One thing for Surfiran to take note is explain more clearly to us about the visa. We thought what is sent to us is the visa. It ended up just a notice and we have to pay for visa fee at the airport with that notice. We could have save some time if we knew about it beforehand.

Overall, we are pleased with this trip. Thank you, Surfiran.
