Philip Wehtje Location : Sweden Entrance :28/12/06 Cities : Tehran, Esfahan, Shiraz, Yazd Length :21 days Occupation : Student Education: High-school Comments : Very hospital and in general friendly people. I have only had one bad experience so far at a fast-food place in Dizin having problems to get my food. Also I really think the pollution in Teheran is terrible as it seems to be in many of the big cities. However, I really recommend the country to anyone who is interested in traveling in an exciting and unexploited country.

Comments :This is our second trip to Iran. Both times we came to see friends who returned to Iran from overseas, but also to see some of the oldest heritage sites in the world, and see more of the fascinating Iranian culture, mixing both today's world and the traditional beliefs. We have been welcomed many times, even to peoples' homes, to share meals, met people in tea-houses or just on the street, people who are interested in both our experience of Iran and also our views from the outside on politics, culture, food and religion, from mullahs to taxi drivers and street vendors. Iran is a surprisingly safe & easy place to travel in, although you may find traveling by road stressful at first! People are often not used to seeing foreigners outside the main centers, and you may be stopped by police simply out of curiosity - they've learnt some English at school and can't wait to practice it. Iran is one of those rare countries that restores your faith in the honesty of people, and humbles you before their unending.

Before I came to Iran, my friends were worried about my safety as they thought that it was not safe. After arriving here, I've found that the Iranians are very nice and they are willing to help us when we don't know how to get to the place we want to go. One day, when we were visiting a mosque in Esfahan, we met some university students and they took us to a cafe and had a drink. They even wanted to treat us the meal. They are really friendly and nice. I think Iran is a country that is worth visiting. If you're interested in the ancient architecture, this is the place you must visit in your life! Yin Fun from Hong Kong.

Tino Luinstra and Gijs van Tilburg Location : Holand Entrance : 25 december 2006 Cities : Shiraz, Qom, Isfahan, Tehran, Kish Length : 21 days Occupation : teacher and engineer Education: university Comments : We really like the Iranian people above everything else this country has to offer! Of course all the historical sites, blue-mosaiqued mosques and all waterpipes and falafel are great! Since Delster Sib is the drink to zip, we do not miss our alcoholic escapades a bit... But most hardwarming are the meetings with all nice peoples : where else in this world share people that much??? Do not believe all the stuff on the Western tv, but go and feel it with your own heart!

Comments :We have thoroughly enjoyed every part of Iran. Beginning in Tehran and working our way down to Shiraz, we have found each city unique and have enjoyed learning about the fascinating history and taking in the beautiful sights. One thing that has been consistent throughout our trip is the hospitality of the Iranian people who have welcomed us to their country in the most warm and inviting way possible.

Comments : I have found the Iranian people to be very hospitable and generous, and intend to come back here again.
Cities : Tabriz, Masuleh, Teheran, Esfahan, Shiraz, Bam, Yazd, Kashan, Mashhad Comments: ich bin wirklich ueberascht mit welcher gastfreundlichkeit ich hier aufgenommen wurde, die Menschen sind sehr interessiert, leider geht Ihr Englisch selten ueber woher und wohin hinaus. Man bekommt in jeder lage hilfe und nimmt sich zeit um evtl. probleme zu loesen. Im gegensatz zu einigen anderen laendern, welche ich kennengelernt habe, hatte ich nie das gefuehl ausgenutzt zu werden. die freundlichkeit der Iraner wuerde ich vergleichen mit der der Laoten, gepaart mit viel Stolz

Comments : Iran has proven to be one of the friendliest countries of the many we have yet visited. Everywhere we go we are greeted by children and adults alike and told again and again "Welcome to Iran!" We have been invited into homes, offered meals and had numerous locals approach us just to meet or speak with us, travelers from another country. One meeting leads to many others here, and more invitations. Over and over we have been told "Our home is your home!" We cannot say enough about the kindness and hospitality exhibited toward us by the extraordinary people of Iran, and it has been a real pleasure to experience.
