MIR in the News: AFAR Magazine, TravelAge West, Conde Nast Traveler, DestinAsian, and more!
As experts in travel to Central Asia, Russia, Mongolia and beyond, it’s always gratifying when word of our tours and destinations is noticed and shared. Here are some of MIR’s recent mentions in the press:
- MIR vice president Annie Lucas was recently interviewed in TravelAge West about traveling to so called “edgy” destinations, including Iran.
“We try to make a region that most people are intimidated by accessible,” Lucas said. “That’s been our goal since the very beginning.”
MIR’s clients tend to be “country-collectors,” Lucas says — savvy, experienced consumers looking for a unique experience far from the well-trodden path. However, that’s not to say that these destinations are off-limits to the more mainstream buyer; at MIR, special accommodations and customizations can be made for families with children, multigenerational groups or clients who take things at a slower pace.
