I am proud of living in a country with a history of more than seven thousand years of civilization and lots of beautiful and historically significant places. Although a lot of people love to visit Iran and get familiar with its rich Persian culture, it’s not so easy to find an appropriate person to treat the interested visitors in a way that they enjoy their trip and be willing to come back. This is what Najmeh Kazemi knows and does very well.
Seven years of successful experiences of tourism along with studying of tourism in Milano University in Italy, have made her one of the best people to plan and implement outstanding tours all over Iran.
I have been included in the scientific committees and organizing teams of five successful international congresses in Iran and Najmeh has been an important and influencing colleague in most of them.
She is now planning for the touristic part of the First Asian Hypnosis Congress in October 2019 for almost 400 international visitors coming from all around the world. Having her in the organizing team of the congress is a real privilege. I love working with her and will surely continue doing that.

Two times have I travelled to Iran in my life, and two times was Najmeh Kazemi my tour Guide. The first time 2015 she led our group to fantastic locations, where we found the orient in such a beauty and splendor, that we nearly couldn’t believe it. Her sense for art, beauty, poetry and history is unique. Najmeh does not only know a lot about geography, politics, history, religion and art, she also has deep emotions towards all these topics.
And this makes it to be a big pleasure to travel with her. The second time in 2016, I was organizing a travel group with her to Iran and she also became tour guide for our group.
We in this trip even more realized, how unique and brilliant she is. Never thinking of her own advantage, always looking after her group, always having an open ear for changes or wishes in the group.
Najmeh is a wonderful person and I am looking forward to meet her again for another spectacular trip into the 1001 secrets of Iran.

Najmeh Kazemi was our Guide during 10-day Tour when a group of International medical doctors, dentists and psychologist travelled in Iran before we have been teaching at an international congress in Teheran in 2015 the quality of this Tour was superb. Najmeh Kazemi not only showed us the beauty of her country she also told us a lot about the history and culture of Iran. She was knowing a lot about classic and modern poetry as well as about ancient Sufi teachings some in our group have been interested. Astonishing for us was that a young Iranian woman additionally was knowing a lot about contemporary Western music. Knowing all the songs of the Beatles and Leonard Cohen was less astonishing than realizing she was knowing in detail minimal music of Philip Glass but also other modern Western composers.
Additionally, she has a quite good knowledge about the cinema movies and the art of script writing and drama.
Maybe this combination is explaining the special quality experience in her tours. In organizing two more international congresses 2016 and 2017 I was included in scientific and organization team taking place at Medical university of Mashhad we therefore chosen Najmeh Kazemi to organize the touristic part for the up to 50 international presenters. There have been tours before and after the congresses. All tour participants have been giving excellent feedback about the tours Najmeh Kazemi was designing as well as her art of guiding the group. And we really had some very experienced world travelers in our group.
Since fall 2015 Najmeh Kazemi is studying touristic business on Master Level at Milano University in Italy to realize her dream to run a own touristic agency. I am sure she will be fast in transferring her excellence in tour planning and guiding in direction of a full service international agency.

"I have organized 5 big international congresses and more than 200 domestic conferences in Iran. Also, I have attended many congresses in Asia and Europe in my special fields (Hypnosis and anesthesia). Then I can evaluate and judge appropriate about importance of Touristic plans management in congresses. Specially in order to limited time for speakers in groups. I surely enjoyed working with Najmeh Kazemi as tour manager of our 3 congresses (2015 -6-7).
Her work was so ideal that I was relaxed and free minded about touristic part of congresses and could concentrate better on scientific plans. I will continue working with her at future because she is emphatic, responsible and kindness with participants and organizing team."
"Impressions of my first trip to Iran and my comments on my guide Najmeh.
After many adventures to obtain our visas, here we are finally arrived in Iran, my daughter and me. Happy to discover an unknown country. Our journey took us from Teheran to Isfahan by bus, then to Mashhad by plane. Thanks to Najmeh we discovered a new culture. An exotic cuisine brought us flavors of Asia.
I really liked the wild, desert and mountainous landscape. What impressed me the most was Imam Square with its covered markets and mosques. Najmeh made us discover the big and small corners all very interesting. Thank you for this fabulous adventure that will remain engraved in my memory."
“I just had an amazing trip in Iran with a lovely tour guide. Najmeh has an incredible knowledge of her country and its history. She helped me already before the trip with all sorts of things and patiently answered my thousand questions.
I was a little nervous and insecure before the trip, but this feeling were completely unfounded. The country is beautiful and the people are so kind and incredibly welcoming. I am already looking forward to another trip with Najmeh in Iran.”

2017 – I visited Iran for the second time – this time feeling quite confident and at ease about safety and security as my first visit helped to free myself from some misconceptions and negative anticipations …still when you tell people in Belgium you go to Iran, you see surprised faces and people start questioning about safety.
October, 2017, I had only 4 days to visit Iran, before the start of the 2017 Mental Training Mashhad congress…and perhaps one thinks is it worthwhile to be a tourist in such an extended country with a limited time ….I have to tell you, it is really amazing and with a perfectly organized tour you get the best of the best and you can enjoy a rich variety of experiences!
I was lucky to have Najmeh as our guide - she put together a wonderful program with an opportunity to visit the touristic highlights in Istanbul, Esfahan, Kashan, Nain.
I appreciate her personal commitment and approach to give each of the participants personal attention and warmth, to care, to remove all worries and be a very nice hostess: one feels like being a guest in her huge house – Esfahan, Iran, where she has her roots. She really loves her country and in guiding visitors, takes the opportunity to help them discover all the beauty of the country and the people and the delicious tastes and flavours of Iranian food! A treat for your eyes, your smell and your tastes! An inspiring way to stimulate your interest to learn more about the country, the people, and the rich history. I wish readers will have the opportunity to visit and enjoy Iran with her.
