FITUR 2019 was successfully held in Madrid in January. Different travel agencies and tour operators from around the world attended the exhibition to promote their countries’ travel and tourism industry by introducing their new travel products and services.

With about 30 years of expertise in the travel and tourism industry, Iran Doostan Tours Co. has concentrated on inbound tours to promote Iran’s tourism and travel attractions and potentials to the world.

In a conference, Mr. M. Ali Vaghefi, the Managing Director of Iran Doostan Tours, presented Iran’s tourism attractions to the Spanish travel agents and tour operators. He called Iran as one of the safest destinations in the world and reassured the audience of traveling to Iran with the purpose of visiting its great cultural and natural attractions. “According to 2019 Travel Risk Map, Iran is as safe as the UK when it comes to security,” he said. As Iran and its neighboring countries have many cultural features in common, it is the best place to travel in 2019 for the tourists who would like to travel to the Middle East but they have preconceptions of instability in the region.

Mr. Vaghefi also added Iran visa process is easy and fast and the tourists can apply for a visa online. Iran e-visa has been launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make it easier to apply for an Iran tourist visa online.

Mr. Vaghefi referred to the main role of social media and websites and the power of word-of-mouth marketing in promoting the tourist destinations. He encouraged the audience to consider the reviews of the tourists who have already traveled to Iran. Iran is such a vast country with a wide variety in its cultural and natural attractions. Therefore, it can definitely satisfy different kinds of tourists with different tastes and needs.

He brought his words to an end by referring to Iranians’ hospitality. “Iranians are friendly people whose hospitality is exemplary among the travelers and tourists who have traveled to Iran and have experienced it personally.”
