Hossein and Jerry started working together with their first American tour in Iran back in 2009. By that time, Hossein had already had years of experience in tourism heading Iran’s tourism office in Paris and subsequently developing the French and China markets to Iran. 2009 we have brought many, many Americans to Iran, as the number of Americans coming to Iran since 2009 under the TunisUSA and/or Iconic Journeys Worldwide continues growing. Whether groups of as many as forty-people, or a customized private tour for as few as two, Iconic Journeys Worldwide, has designed programs specializing in many different themes. This strong “hands on” ability to handle programs in Iran, which can often ebb and flow as the relations between the U.S. and Iran, helps overcome the type of surprises which any traveler to Iran may face. Jerry Sorkin has been awarded the “Top Travel Specialist” honor in 2017 for Iran by Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
