It’s a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.

That’s right, it’s official. I’m a tour guide and I have the t-shirt to prove it (oh, and the card).

As an Iranian tour guide, I am certified to accompany you throughout Iran. What can I do for you? Here are just a few examples:

  • Plan an adventure suited to your specific needs and preferences

  • Nudge you out of the classical tourist routes and provide fresh and exciting alternatives

  • Teach you about the Iranian way of life, past and present

  • Facilitate genuine interactions with people by providing two-way interpretation

  • Act as your driver and manoeuvre you through Iran’s roads and streets safely

  • Be a friend to you as you get lost in a strange land

As unconventional as the last one sounds, it’ll come in handy in an unconventional place. And it’s also why I became a tour guide in the first place.

I’ve loved travelling for as long as I can remember. In fact, I was getting lost before I learned to walk! Later, I made a habit of getting lost all over Iran (and the world whenever possible). I realized that not only was I good at it, but I could help people wander into the unknown and reemerge transformed from the experience. The equation was simple:

I enjoy it + I’m good at it => CAREER

I love a good laugh. But when it comes to responsibilities, I take them seriously. After we reach an agreement, I’ll give my 100% to ensure your trip is pleasant and memorable. Just take a look at my happy clients.
