What constitutes the real leading Iran tour operator?
Besides legitimacy and qualifications for running tourist business, long and professional experience, as well as quality and considerate service, make our website the real leader of Iran tours.
Here are some methods to test the quality of a tour operator:
1. Check whether they have both international and domestic numbers. If not, this is an indication that they are not a large organization. Most of the big and reliable travel services have their own International numbers for the convenience of the customers. (We have International numbers in USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, China, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, South Africa, Korea, Japan, Swiss, Denmark, Finland, Ukraine, and Russia. You can go to ” Contact Us
” for more information.
2. Take care when coming across a tour operator offering unbelievably low prices. Companies offering an excessively low price probably offer very poor service, even worse they may not provide the standard they had promised. Taking meals as an example, they may provide mass-produced meals for you, which only cost 2 to 3 dollars. You will never have the chance to taste the real Iranian foo
d in some fine restaurants
, not to mention the a la carte meals offered by us.
How do I judge the network security of an online tour operator?
If you use the internet often, you will find that the addresses of some websites start with ‘http
’ while some start with ‘https
’. If the address of the website of an online tour operator starts with ‘https’, it means that the website guarantees users a safer internet surfing environment. In the rightmost of the address bar, you can also see a lock sign, which is shown only on HTTPS type websites. Users of HTTPS websites do not need to worry about payment security or the risk of being hacked. For example, MysterOfIran.com
has adopted the HTTPS data transport method to protect the users’ privacy more efficiently.
By the way, it takes a lot of funds and efforts to achieve and maintain this security function. You can judge a tour operator’s economic strength to a certain degree by whether its website is HTTPS type or not.
Are the private guides with high ranks on TripAdvisor (TA) reliable?
TripAdvisor (TA) offers a platform for private guides to promote their business and for travelers to exchange ideas, but as a legal and responsible travel agency, we strongly suggest tourists avoid such private guides!
They are totally self-employed, offering personal guide service without a fixed office site and office phone number. Usually, only a mobile phone number is available. Their service standard cannot be guaranteed because they are truly riskers – evading taxation and the supervision of the Tourism Bureau.
Imagine when you encounter an emergency, trouble, low-quality service, or even a trap, who could you complain to? Don’t put yourself in such an embarrassment to know the right choice – legal travel agencies, like Mystery Of Iran, under the supervision of tourism administration.
What’s more, those private guides might not have legal tour guide license, and their guiding skills are on various levels. You could only bet on luck when following them.
