How Destination Iran Was Born

About Destination IranBack in 2002, there was an interesting travel program on TV called “Destination Germany”. The founder of this website Rahman Mehraby, was watching this program regularly and enjoyed it very much. He was a tour guide in his early years of passionate working and wanted to do something useful to introduce his country to the people on the web. So, “Destination Iran” was born and domain was bought and maintained till now.

Over the years, he’s learned more and more from you about what he must do to provide for those who plan to travel to Iran, the people who are looking for something genuine and real. They want to experience something unique that makes Iran the journey of their lifetime. He’s put together all he could possibly compile to serve your thirst to know Iran.

About Destination Iran’s early years, little is knows as the website had been built on Flash technology and no search engine optimization techniques were implemented. Later, other technologies were used and as the main goal was to reach out the people who needed it, a well-optimized technology was taken into action.

      Yes, it’s allowed. It’s as safe for Americans as it is for other nationalities. I can introduce other US citizens who have recently traveled to Iran with us so that you can check with them.

    I have just discovered this site and have seen some of the pictures. My husband and I have visited many of Iran’s cities and villages for 30 days with a private Iranian guide in 2006. We have fell in love to Iran, its people and its culture since then.

    Iran is among the three best countries from 36 we have visited. Also, we have never experienced a so polite and intellectual people like Iranians. It was not a coincidence! It happened many beautiful situations during our trip. We live in USA (we are not Americans) but have used our American passport in this trip.

    In New York’s airport the gentleman asked us some questions and soon realized that there is no restriction to travel to Iran. We will go back again anytime soon. Iran is one of the best countries to be visited if you want a marvelous vacation. I have heard so many times Iranians saying “Thanks to come to Iran”, “Welcome to our country”, and so on. Now, I say “Thanks to all Iranians for being such a nice people”.
