17th WFTGA Convention: Tehran Iran

The Convention will be organised by the Iran Federation of Tourist Guides Associations (IFTGA). WFTGA Vice President and Past President Ruby Roy visited Iran for ITGD 2015


The pre-tour offers the largest brick dome in the world and the tomb

of legendary Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai. The post-tour takes us to Shiraz,

the city of nightingales and poetry and the famous excavations of Persepolis. This will be

the first time in Iran for many, to finally see well known treasures in reality, to learn

about one of the oldest cultures too secluded these last decades! It will mean to all of us

astonishment, breaking down walls and prejudices; it will hopefully bring peace to a

territory as tourism should, a country so important for all our early cultural development.

It will truly mean: experience another culture with all five senses!
