An untold story!

Maryam was 16 when reading “Einstein, Physics and Reality by “Jagdish Mehra”, made her to decide studying Physics in university to get to know more about the universe. She became a Physics teacher and was trying to teach her students to look at the world in a different way.
Years later, reading “Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse”, made her to think she needed to explore the world rather than only reading the books. She left her teaching job and started traveling the world alone. After years of traveling alone, she decided to share the joy of traveling with others through handling numbers of tours to different countries.
As for her different viewpoints, all those who traveled with her became loyal to her and asked her where could be her next trip. She also presented new destinations to Iran Tourism like Sri Lanka, Philippines and Vietnam by having a lot of seminars for Iranian travel agencies. But after years of experience, she was still feeling something was missing in her life! “Why the people of the world don’t know much about  the beauty of Iran and it’s rich culture which had influenced as far away as Italy, Macedonia, and Greece to the West, Russia to the North, the Arabian Peninsula to the South, and South and East Asia to the East? “ She asked herself one night. “Prime Persia” dream was born at that night!
