This research was, thus, conducted by quantitative field study to clarify the effects of tourism providing information by tour and travel agencies of Tehran on development of infrastructures of tourist centers and the future opportunities in Tehran. The results show that, contribution of tour and travel agencies of Tehran city as endogenous factors of tourism spatial system of Tehran region in structural-functional developments is of greater importance than the role of public tourism organizations as exogenous factors.
