1995 – 1997>
I started in the tourism industry as a Tourist Guide. I worked with many inbound Tour Operator.
1997 – 2001
After being awarded the license for Tour Guiding by the Ministry of Islamic Guidance,
I realized that the tourist guide had no identity! Started to search to set up and create the Identity needed.
I formed my own Tour operation in Holland with the name of “Iran Reizen”, www.iranreizen.nl that has been functional until 2015.
After the 11th of Sep, the formation of tourist guides Association took a very strong position and gave us the ability to find the path to form the Association.
On the 26th of July 2003 the first Association of the tourist guides after a long two-year process was formed.
The Logo of ITGA:
It has been chosen from the Achaemenian hand in the National Museum. This hand is holding the Lotus Flower in Blue color in a circle.
.The meaning of the Logo of ITGA:
The Round circle: Represents the circle of life, the Sun
The Lotus: The Flower is the representation of all the goodness of life, Femininity & Masculinity
The Hand: Represents connection, friendship.
The Aim: Since the Tourist Guides are the Cultural Ambassador of Iran, with their logo as their identity they offer their hand with a very Special Flower to the world.
