A Message from Our Manager

As one of the first tour operator companies in Iran, IRAN DOOSTAN TOURS CO. (IDT) has always tried to grow and change on the path that shows real Iran to the world. Because of our desire to represent the rich Persian culture and history and to convey our love of hospitality to the world we have always tried to be innovative, so we have a lot of “firsts” in our records. IDT is the first incoming tour operator in Iran that had a website, the first who operated a pilgrimage tour to Iran, operated the tour for German soccer team, hired IT employees, established a digital marketing department, and many more.

In today’s world that is rapidly changing it is our main goal to stand to our values and responsibilities more than ever.

Twenty six years ago beauties of Iran became our inspiration to show this ancient aesthetic culture to the world. Iran as the birthplace to one of the oldest civilizations on earth has an astonishing collection of historical monuments, unique landscape, shrines, museums, and outstanding architecture that makes it one of the top destinations in the world.

From the first day it became our great mission to offer the best packages and services to our valued customers to create one of the best experiences in their life. Over the years we have hired the most professional staff to design the best packages for four seasons of the year and leave no limits for travelers who want to see Iran at any time of the year.

Establishing the first and only desert eco-camp of Iran in 2010 by following the universal codes of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and SRB (Socially Responsible Business) is one of our developments for this matter. In 2014 Matinabad Desert Camp & Organic Farm was known by UNDP as one of 18 best practices in sustainable (eco) tourism in the world.

In the years that Iran was highly isolated due to international sanctions and the propaganda against Iran was at its highest, we never gave up on our dreams and tried to continue on working hard based on our principles. IDT participated in important events and shows around the world such as ITB, WTM, FITUR, SITC, MITT, BIT, BTL, COTTM, Adventure Travel Show Washington and LA and many more to present the endless beauties of Iran so the world won’t forget our country because of the untrue and negative connotations. And we successfully managed to achieve the “Iran tourism Industry Award of Excellence” in 2008 from Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts, and Tourism Organization.

We must say we owe all our accomplishments to the trust of our dear customers and it is truly the best achievement of all for us.

Now that the good days for tourism of Iran have come and the international community is starting to see the real Iran it is our greatest pleasure to be your host and help you discover the beauties of this country and have one of the most fantastic trips of your life. My great team and I are here to help you to plan a perfect get away for you and your family.

Best Wishes,

Ali Vaghefi

Managing Director
