Iran was our first time traveling with a group,preferring to map out our own route.Happily, our trip was all we could have hoped for. The group was small and engaging. Norma Lee was always ready to provide whatever assistance we required and our guide,Ata, demonstrated a deep and insightful knowledge of his country. Our days were filled with the images of this beautiful country and interaction with its wonderful people. It was one of the most fullfilling trips we've ever been on.

My experience with Norma Lee was tremendous from start to finish.She helped me plan the perfect Solo trip  with suggestions and options to optimze my time. She was always available by e-mail and phone. Her people in Iran were top notch. Great hotels.Great guides. It is reassuring to have a U.S. based contact  make the  arrangements  and be there to answer all your questions.I  highly recommend  arranging your trip with her-whether it be solo or a group. You won't be disappointed either  with this wonderful country or with this knowledgable lady.
