I have spoken to Jean Doe, my travel agent, and told her what a wonderful time we had in Iran. I did want to tell you personally that our guide, Mohsen .........., was one of the best guides we have ever had. He was knowledgeable, helpful, a great sense of humor and so pleasant to be with. I do not know what agency he is with.
We met some very nice people and most everyone made us feel very welcome. I am looking forward to a return trip to the north, Caspian Sea area.
Thank you so much.
Thank you for all of your hard work to ensure that I had a wonderful time in Iran during my recent vacation.
I really enjoyed my tour of Tehran, especially Golestan Palace, the Crown Jewels Museum and the Carpet Museum.
I do not know how to thank you enough.
I shall gladly refer all of my traveling friends to your travel agency, and I will also recommend a visit to Iran to friends and family.
My tour guide in Tehran was wonderful and very knowledgeable.
Thanks again for everything.
Thank you so much for arranging a very special trip to the Islamic Republic of Iran. We arrived in Tehran on September 20th full of hope and expectations, all of which were greatly exceeded. The beautiful mosques, the gardens, the tea houses, but above all the friendliness and courtesy we received from the people of Iran will stay with us forever. Fatemeh, our Tehran guide, met us at the airport with a smile, took care of hotel check-in, and, with pride and enthusiasm, showed us around the museums and the city sights.
Mr. S......., with equal professionalism, introduced us to the beautiful city of Isfahan. The Ali Quapu hotel met the same high standard as our hotel in Tehran, both of which were centrally located for walking to the bazaars and many places of interest. The Palace, the blue and yellow tiled mosques, the tea houses under the river bridges, and the exotic eastern Bazaar made Isfahan our favorite city.
Shiraz was our gateway to Persepolis, and our introduction to Iran's early history and culture. This, we believe, is a "must see" for anyone visiting the Islamic Republic of Iran, as it is truly spectacular.
Our fifteen days in Iran, constituted one of our best and most interesting vacations, and we would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
Thank you, Cyrus, for making all the arrangements, and for making our trip possible.
Thank you so very much for arranging my adventure of a lifetime! It was a wonderful cultural experience, which afforded me the opportunity to see first-hand the beauty and warmth of Iran. I have traveled throughout the Near East, but have never been as sincerely welcomed and courteously cared for.
The ancient history or Iran? Persia, alone, is worth the trip. Persepolis and Pasargade, along with Kermanshah, are testaments to a rich and varied past. The Islamic architecture is some of the most magnificent works of art I have ever seen and the natural beauty is awesome. Thanks to the Persians, we have the rose!
Safety was never a concern and the cities of Tehran, Mashhad, Shiraz, etc., are well kept, well lit, clean and hospitable. Isfahan really is "half-the-world".
I thank you, again, and look forward to a return trip, with my husband, in the near future..
We had a very nice trip to Isfahan and Shiraz. My compliments to Cyrus Travel, as well your corresponding agency in Iran.
Just a little note to thank you for all your efforts for facilitating such an excellent service to your customers.
Throughout the past years, I have had the pleasure of enjoying your services and because of your professional attitude, kind personality and prompt service, I have chosen the Cyrus Travel as my most favorite travel agency.
Keep up the good work.
A Travel Agent,
I wanted to visit your country for so long and it was incredible. The guides were great, always willing to help and to show us whatever we wanted. Our companions could not been better and the trip itself definitely exceeded my expectations. Being a group of 5 only, we were able to see the past, present and future of Iran. The home visit that we had in Shiraz gave great insight into how people really live. Everybody was so nice and helpful. I was in awe of your ancient civilization and learned so much about Iran. I hope I can send some clients and friends to your country so they can see what I saw. Thank you again for a wonderful trip.

I spent 17 days in Iran with Cyrus Tours, and found the trip among the most interesting I've experienced. This includes Cuba and North Korea. The scenery is magnificent, the spring weather delightful, the antiquity amazing (some predates Greece) and the people simply marvelous. They are extremely hospitable and terribly curious about Americans (I saw nine). The Europeans and Asians are flocking to Iran. At no time was I apprehensive or uncomfortable.
Most of this was because Cyrus Beheshti has more connections in Iran than any other tour operator in America. Originally in travel business in Iran, he still handles more Iranian travel than anyone stateside. His 40+ years in business and his office in Washington D.C. give him a rare perspective.
Had a nice 10 days in Iran. The schedule was just about right; we used one of the Shiraz days to go to Bishapour, which gave us more exposure to countryside. In hindsight, may be I'd go on land from Pasargad via Yazd to Isfahan, but it was fine as is.
The historical sites were outstanding, as expected. I was glad that I Got a few occasions to talk to people, including visits to a university, a business promoting Persian language software company, some bookstores and some religious minorities. Not a lot, but more than I had anticipated in a tight schedule. Did get to the mountains above Tehran, and -big surprise- right to Khomeini's home.
We got a bunch of nice restaurants for fesenjan, fadooli (at least the Shiraz version) and ash-e-reshteh (though only once, in the Caravansarai Hotel garden in Isfahan). Standard kebabs fine. I did get tired of barley soup on every menu.
A particular commendation to Reza......., our guide, who was both knowledgeable about the archeological details but, very important, on the linguistic issues which were important to me. Friendly, young, gregarious, still eager to learn, and still excited about going to places he'd been to a hundred times before. He was a good choice.
Now if they would all just learn how to drive.....
Just a note to thank you again for all your efforts in putting together such a memorable vacation to Egypt. We really enjoyed the whole trip and also Ayman was such a knowledgeable person, you could feel his passion for Egypt. We look forward to many more trips with Cyrus Travel. Thanks again.
Dear Cyrus Travel
Earlier this month Mr. Paul ...... and I traveled to Iran, visiting Tehran, Isfahan and Shiraz. We were very satisfied with the itinerary. We found the hotels, food and guides to be excellent. Moreover, the people were most friendly to us.
We both highly recommend the services of Cyrus Travel.
Our only regret was not to have more time there.
Dear Cyrus Beheshti,
I just wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for the great accommodation of your Egypt tour. I have only 3 words to say: FAB-U-LOUS.
Everything about the trip was perfect, hotel accommodation, the Nile cruise, the food and most importantly our tour guide Ayman, we loved him, such a passionate individual about his work and so kind and sweet. He was as our shadow everywhere and made sure that we were all happy 24/7.
I can't thank you enough for all your great service, because of you and your staff this trip was possible for me, my mom and my aunts. I wanted to send you this thank you note on behalf of all. We will definitely recommend your services to our friends and family.
I just returned from 17 days in Iran, and recommend the trip highly. Visas, connections and accommodations were first rate; guides excellent; the weather fine, the scenery spectacular, the antiquity (some 2500 years) astounding. The people, with a great curiosity about Americans, couldn't have been more kind or hospitable.
We want to thank you for a wonderful experience with your travel agency, we did enjoy our vacation in Egypt very much. If you ever travel to Nashville, TN please visit us, we love to see you again. I attached some pictures of you with the group.
