Overview

Isfahan Free Walking Tour

In Isfahan Free Walking Tour, you will walk with us for 3 hours and get familiar with Isfahan’s must-see places, you’ll also know a lot about the city’s history, art, and culture. Let’s start walking through Sepah street toward Naqsh-e Jahan Square. On the way, you can watch the old and modern shops and pass by Chehel Sotoun Palace which is one of the Persian gardens and dates back to the Safavid time.

Suddenly, at the end of the street, you face a rectangular magnificent square with lively atmosphere. A sight which doesn’t belong to our world. Naqsh-e Jahan Square is glorious and ingenuous. It seems like you have travelled to Persia in the Safavid era. The series of arches all around the square, vibrant bazaars and four beautiful monuments on the sides.

You will see a large beautiful basin in the middle and the carriages riding by strong horses around the square. When Isfahan was chosen as the Capital City of Iran, this square was built by the Safavid King, Shah Abbas. On the west side you can observe Ali Qapou Edifice, where was the Safavid governing center. They also built a mosque only for the royal family called Sheikh Lotfollah in the east of square, and there’s Shah mosque and Qeysarie gate in the north-south axis.

While watching all these allures, we will offer you to taste one of the most delicious desserts of Isfahan, a Fereni which is very similar to panna cotta. After spending some time in the square and bazaars, let’s move to Hasht Behesht Palace that is located in a beautiful garden and nowadays it’s also a public park. You will be amazed by its superb architecture and gorgeous decoration. This palace also dates back to the Safavid time. This tour will let you get a general perception of Isfahan, covers all aspects from history to architecture and from culture to Persian cuisine.

Fantastic walking tour with Firouzeh

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic free tour of Isfahan with Firouzeh. She is a great guide- she is warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. We were the only two people on the tour so she focussed on our interests which are art and history. Her English is excellent as is her information on Isfahan. Firouzeh also introduced us to typical foods of the city which were delicious. She spent four hours with us showing how generous she is with her time. She even offered to walk with us to the bus station to help us with buying our tickets to Shiraz. We feel that we have met a new friend. I recommend this tour with Firouzeh

Samaneh, great at history of Isfahan

I did a walking tour with Samaneh. She is extremely knowledgable and very flexible with her schedule. She took us inside two monuments and explained everything inside which is really unheard of on free walking tours. I definitely recommend her to tourists that visit Isfahan.

Interesting tour with Samaneh!

In May we did a walking tour with Samaneh. She is really kind and tells a lot of interesting facts about the city and all that is in it! In the beginning she checks if you have special interests (for example architecture, poetry or history) and she uses that it her information. Thank you for the interesting morning!

Free walking tour with Samaneh.

First of all we have to say that it was great getting a private tour from Samaneh because we were the only 2 guests. Samaneh loves giving and receiving information. She knows the right balance between walking, sightseeing and giving information about history, architecture, gastronomy and so on. We confirm that Samaneh is very flexible and is open for suggestions. Do not hesitate. Just book the Tour?

Esfahan tour with Samaneh

I had a wonderful day with Samaneh, she was very flexible with what I wanted to see and do. She stopped whenever I wanted to try or go into an attraction as I happened to be the only one on the tour (it was low season). What especially stood out is the stop she makes for desert that is traditional of the city that she bought for me. She has a masters in history and is thus very knowledgeable about the city and country. I can highly recommend her!
