Sassan is the best guide on the planet and made the trip extraordinary. He’s an exceptional combination of knowledge, intelligence, humour, generosity, flexibility and sense of how to engage an audience. He had an extraordinary ability to keep his lectures brief and leave one eager for the next!
Your itinerary was faultless.
If I were to make any constructive points I would say:
1)tell people to bring a small pillow as the local ones can be hard
2)tell people to bring a bath plug, particularly for basins.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Iran and Magic Carpet were tremendously helpful and efficient. It is quite a daunting country to plan a visit for and all of your staff were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Our guide Mr Sasson was a fountain of knowledge with incredible good humour and he ensured that everything ran smoothly and we knew where to be. He was a real character and we learned so much from him at every location we visited.
I would have no hesitation recommending Magic Carpet and Iran as a tourist destination. It is a wonderful country with a rich history and is a fascinating place to visit. We will never forget our time in Iran and were so glad we went.
We had a wonderful trip to Iran. The people of Iran were very friendly to the extent that, on anti-US and anti-imperialistic day, a demonstration march carrying banners greeted us in the street with broad smiles, handshakes and inquiries as to where we came from.
Magic Carpets organisation of the trip was practically faultless and protected us completely from the controlling bureaucracy which is an endemic feature of the regime.
Many thanks for arranging such an instructive and enjoyable trip.
