The year of 1994 two young friends decided to open a travel company named Simorgh Aftab Shiraz after a failure from an aviation company, Simorgh was a big start in tourism industry but because of dramatic event and a loss of a dear friend, Behrooz Qanei, they closed the company.

On 1997 the two young guys with having years of experiences in tourism established “Gardeshgaran Shiraz Travel Agency” and start their profession as both outgoing and incoming tours, it was one of the first incoming tour operators in shiraz.

10 years after that, 2007, Mohamad friendlyiran’s CEO, decided to open the second branch “Gardeshgaran Shahr-e Raz Shiraz” and since he was interested a lot in incoming tours, the second office day by day became more successful in Iran incoming field and has been titled as the best incoming tour operator in Iran. Mohamad himself has studied MBA and his PH.D. is in Business Administration (DBA), although he has finished his education, he is always interested in learning new things and updating his information. This is why he has traveled to more than 50 countries, participated in international fairs such as Fitur, ITB, JATA, ATM, WT, met valuable masters and amazing men like Brian Tracy, Allen Pieze, Nick Vujicic, Kevin Gaskell and Marcos Rack and also joined the educational tours of visiting famous companies and brands.

and brands.

Mohamad now runs different incoming websites such as friendlyiran, Irantourcenter, let’s go Iran, Incredible Iran and etc.

On 2011 the third branch, “Gardeshgaran Sarv-e Shiraz”, started its activity as a Tourism Academy. The idea was in Mohamad’s mind for many years because of enjoying his job as a teacher in tourism institutes. Having a private institute enables him to help many young people follow their dreams and became tour guides, travel agents, photographer, reception in hotel, and have learned many other skills about Persian handicrafts. 2000 students have been educated from Sarv tourism institute till now.
