Three US-based tour operators say they’ve seen a surge of bookings & questions about Iran

According to an article in the LA Times, Rouhani’s opening with the United States has encouraged tour agencies in the United States to explore possible tours inside Iran. It seems that a boomlet has begun. The article quotes Janet Moore, owner of the Long Beach-based tour operator Distant Horizons,  saying she  “arranged Iranian trips for 50-60 U.S. travelers in 2013. In 2014, she expects that number to be at least 250 people, including three trips in connection with the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and one with the San Francisco-based Commonwealth Club of California.”
