Years of Experience
GoPersis operates tours with more than 10 years of experience in Iran inbound tourism. Also, Exhibiting in Int’l fairs and collaborating with worldwide OTAs, DMCs and tour operators prove our reputation.
What are the Gopersis intellectual frameworks?
We believe that Iranian tour operators should not only focus on Tangible Heritage Sites. To clarify, it is great to visit Persepolis and Pasargadae but tourists need to discover the Persians lifestyle too. Indeed, what happened over seven thousand years of civilization and three thousand years of culture. Of course, Persian empires and the passage of time of the last three thousand years have been influential as well.
Furthermore, paying attention to details allows tourist to become acquainted with the Persian lifestyle. Also, Persian ethnic groups and tribes, partial cultures, and the entire country of Iran show itself. Therefore, we had to concentrate on a tourism model that experiencing Persian culture would be the primary goal. In short, and as a result, we have focused on empirical travel too.
How does Gopersis become interested in cultural heritage and tourism?
GoPersis demonstrates Persian cultural heritage in three category:
The first area is that travel is an inherent characteristic of the board and the members of GoPersis’s family life. We have experienced and explored most parts of the country. Our team members love both natural spots and tangible and intangible heritages of local communities and individuals. The colleagues are in huge interest of discovering Persian culture because of our family trips around Iran from childhood. As a result, it led us to choose the industry to be our passion and occupation.
Who are the team members of the Gopersis ?
GoPersis has attempted to select creative, innovative, young, and energetic team members. They are inherently enthusiastic about promoting Persian culture. Also, enthusiasts in management and leadership, plus expertise with related educational background and knowledge. GoPersis members have studied tourism and have visited all over the country or have strong resumes in this field.
Do you work together to create the tours?
Regarding the experts’ activities in designing the tours, GoPersis design Iran tours according to the content that the members create. Ideas come from our passengers, and the expertise work to satisfy travelers curiosity. In other words, tailoring creative Iran tours would be impossible without powerful teamwork and understanding tourists’ desires.
How does Gopersis choose the vendors (for example, accommodations)? Do Gopersis looks for some special characteristics that enhance or complement the traveler’s experience?
We pick hotels, boutique hotels, eco-lodges, flights, landing couches, travel routes, and guides that completely suits our tours. Those services prepare the space for tourists to experience Persian life and culture in Iran.
Is there a tour that travelers can experience cultural performances?
GoPersis designs creative tours because art is one of the most irreplaceable valuable fields in Iran. Those Iran tours dedicate experiences to literature, handicrafts, architecture, and music. To clarify, it is impossible to study a particular lifestyle and people without considering art flow of their lives.
When saying that we want tourists to know Persian lifestyle, we should demonstrate the country’s art.
You can find a Hafez book in almost every Persian house. It shows Iranian enthusiasm for literature. Also, the presence of Persian musicians among the best musicians in the world, the works and musical styles. Those styles are in more than twenty Dastgah (musical system) for hundreds of years. Most importantly, living with artists such as Master Shajarian show the place of music in the daily life of Persians.
Is there a tour or experience that travelers can help create a craft with an artist?
GoPersis wants to properly define experiential trips in Iran. We need to have tours that are quite slowly with a clear difference to the quick ones in Iran. On those tours, tourists visit cities like Isfahan, Tehran, and Shiraz in a short period. Therefore, our Iran tours allow tourists to participate in handicraft and cooking, woodcarving and inlay workshops. Besides, Tourists visit the local bread baking process and the differences between villages such as Masuleh and Meymand.
In addition, tourists learn about people’s lifestyles in modern Iran and traditional settings while understanding Hafez and Saadi’s. Iran travel packages in GoPersis general atmosphere is in cultural tourism category. Tours focus on experiencing tourism to make tourists more familiar with the life details of Iranian.
What are the Gopersis Tours Types and How do you work with the local community?
To get more acquainted with GoPersis tours, you should consider company’s roadmap, which defines three categories:
History Tours category informs tourists about dynasties and empires that have the greatest influence on the formation of Persian culture. As a result, the first category lets tourists know about royal heritages of Persia. This type of tours elaborate details about dynasty’s performance and how it has shaped Iran and Persian culture. We show Elamite, Achaemenid, Sassanid, and Parthian’s influence on the distinct Persian culture in History Tours category. We define Persian empire tours that contains three thousand seven hundred years stories. Also, Iran Silk Road tour, the world’s most important cultural road to learn better about Iran.
In the second group, we deal with cultural details in Cultural Tours category. Cultural tours take tourists to Iranian music, architecture, literature, rural and nomadic lifestyle. Besides, show tourists the Persian lifestyle based on local handicrafts. On this step, each of the tours immerses us in a point of art and culture of Persian culture.
In the third group, we look at the UNESCO considerations. UNESCO Tours category show 26 registered sites from Iran, 24 tangible, and two related to the industry field. The world’s first industrial town is Shushtar in Khuzestan, and the second is the Iranian railway. Also, two other Iran UNESCO Landscapes are eco-cultural, Lut Desert and the Hyrcanian Forests. We have divided the category into Iran UNESCO and Adventure Tour. In the first tour, tangible heritages such as Persepolis and Pasargadae are visible. In the second one, we connect the Hyrcanian Forests to the Lut Desert as these heritages are eco-cultural ones. Additionally, there are other tours related to Iran UNESCO heritages too.
Is there a tour that facilitates the interaction with locals?
In terms of local communities, GoPersis provides a trip with the name of Iran Village Tour. The journey is part of the Cultural Tours category and focuses on Iran villages. In this tour, besides visiting the villages, tourists can observe rural handicrafts, stay in local accommodations, and meet rural people. For instance, we visit bread baking and local food in the cooking section. We are going to immerse the tourists in the village’s culture.
What have you been doing during the pandemic and the closeness of borders?
GoPersis has been quite active during the COVID-19 Prevalence. At first, familiarizing international tourism global associations with the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of Iran by creating rich content.
As a result GoPersis became an only Iranian affiliate member of the World Tourism Association for Culture and Heritage (WTACH). Besides, the founder and chairman of GoPersis became the ambassador of the World Food Travel Association (WFTA) in Iran. Above all, the founder of the company is the founder of Creative Tourism Development Club of UNESCO in Iran too.
In addition, GoPersis founder conducted more than 20 international tourism interviews during epidemy. Interviewing tourism industry leaders such as Professor Dimitrios Buhalis, President of WTACH, President of ICOMOS, and President of the WFTA. Therefore, Such an actions has resulted in having GoPersis as an active brand during the tourism industry collapse. GoPersis made every effort to keep the industry stable and energetic not only for itself, but also for its colleagues.
The company should spread the energy in the Iran society as well as the international public space. Consequently, tourism could revitalize and return. To sum up, the actions took the world attention to Iran and demonstrated a cradle of civilization better.
Has Gopersis adapted its services due to the lockdown?
