So, what makes Iranian different..... ?!! by kombizz Star this if you like it!

So, what makes Iranian different..... ? Mr Ali Adhami, the board of directors in the Iran-Ecotour’s website says: "We guarantee well- equipped, selectively catered, safe and eco- friendly trips." http://www.ecotour-iran.com/about_new.htm On 10 August 2007, I took my mother and her friend on EcoTour’s one day trekking trip to Kondelus Village. Unfortunately the company hired a mini-bus driver who was not familiar with the road to Chaloos that has a series of dangerous winding sections and tunnels. As a result, the bus driver hit the wall of Tunnel No 6. As a result of the resulting huge impact, my mother fell over and was badly injured, she suffered shock of accident and injuries to her foot. My mother needed financial assistance for medical treatment, but Ecotours told us they would pay nothing towards the cost as all the expenses would be paid for by the driver’s Third Party Insurance. This contradicts what Ecotours have told passengers that whoever travels with them is insured for 1,000,000 tomans for hospital, doctors’ expenses. I feel that they contradict themselves because they try to escape from their responsibility toward my mother and myself and other passengers. Since 10/08/07, NOBODY from Iran-EcoTour Company (Dr Houman Jowkar, Dr Houshang Ziaie, Dr Bijan Farhang Darreh-shouri, Mr Ali Adhami), and tour leaders (Mr Mohamad Manzarnejad, Mrs Azadeh Jouhari, Mr Ali Islam) has contacted my mother by any means and asked her how she was! i.e.-Was she alive or dead ! Apparently one of the EcoTour's director cares more about Iranian Cheetah rather than take care of my old injured & traumatized mother!! I wonder what Iran-Ecotour's response would be if my mother had been a foreign tourist traveling with them? Do you think it would be different?

Unfortunately due to not having enough money for doctor, my mother was not able to contnue her treatment.
Since that accident, we have not heard anything from the Iran Ecotour about the insurance money. it seems to me that they forgot all about it or the health situation of my mother.
Also not sure if I wrote here that we complaint to the head of Iranian Tourist ministry, Miras-e Farhangi (http://www.tchto-portal.ir/miras_new/en/) about this nature tour company, Iran Ecotour in 10/09/07. So far we have not received an invitation for hearing our case. The complaint section of Miras-e Farhangi told me usually it took over 3 months to be in waiting list in order the case would be heard by them!!!
We do NOT have much choice unless we wait.
