The story of our journeys goes back to 2004 when we began our expedition to all around Iran. The more we saw, the more we wanted to discover. We wanted to explore the hidden gems and wonders our ancestors have left behind. Back then, we were just adventure seekers who wished to make our dreams come true.
After a while, we realized how the image portrayed of Iran in the mainstream media was false even in our own eyes. We became eager to show everyone the rich culture, history, local life, and nature of Iran not just by telling them about it but by experiencing it through their own lenses.
We want to get rid of the borders that separate the world from this beautiful land and collectively work together to preserve the local people & their cultures and the authentic traditions of Iran. We want to show some of the most ancient and magnificent wonders of the world to you, which might change your life forever.
Who Are We?
Our pioneering team members got to know each other for the first time about 16 years ago when we went to the same school. Afterward, Soheil went into management and worked in nature tourism and developed his own business from the ground up. Mohammad studied socio-economic systems and went into rural development. He traveled a lot to search for innovative solutions to develop local rural communities. Navid studied economics and got to live with nomad communities. He worked in tourism as a way to save this unique lifestyle from going extinct. Hadi emigrated to Austria and after a while, established a tourism company. He has nine years of experience in selling and operating.
However, in all of our paths, one thing has always been common: The love of traveling and Iran’s development. So, we came together to create the dream of IranAmaze into a reality.
But we are not alone on this path. We’ve been proud to have so many like-minded influential individuals help us on our journey. We think that when a few people get together to move towards a better world, they’ll cross paths with many more individuals that share the same image. It will feel like they’ve been friends for a long time ago.
However, we think who we are is not complete without mentioning you. You and every traveler that joins us on this journey will leave a trace on our identity forever. You expand who we are as individuals and as a company. We believe despite all of our differences; we are much of the same. We value this connection to other cultures at IranAmaze so much.
What is IranAmaze?
IranAmaze is a product made by a group of tourism experts in Iran and Austria. We joined together to provide what is missing in the field. On the one hand, we are an Iranian local tour operator, so travelers would benefit from working with locals. On the other hand, our Austrian parent organization enables us to provide you with EU-standard services.
Since the time we’ve established IranAmaze, our personal and social goals have been woven into the business. IranAmaze is not just a business for us; it’s a collective concern. It is our hope for the future. It’s our way of giving back to our community. IranAmaze is a platform to turn indescribable journeys into lifelong experiences for you.
What Are Our Values?
We want to become the pioneers of responsible travel in Iran. One of our main focuses at IranAmaze is preserving those cultural heritages in danger of dying. We want to support local communities in different regions of Iran to find ways to sustain their ancient traditions and rituals. We don’t want one of the oldest civilizations in the world to fade away. So, we do everything we can to not only protect it but also find ways to help locals introduce their traditions to a broader audience that can help them grow in every aspect of life.
Also, as mentioned before, our biggest goal here is to show you the beautiful image of Iran so you’ll go back and become an ambassador for Iran travel. We want you to experience what many others would not. We want to unfold the unheard narratives and define a more holistic story of Iran worth telling every person you come across.
