    Walking tour Esfahan

      We had booked a 3 h tour in Esfahan and ended up to stay with Samaneh much longer as we had so many questions. She was very flexible and knowledgeable. It was wonderful having her with us. We learnt so much not only about history but also about the country. She is an amazing tour guide/ person :) We are really thankful we have had her as a guide. We definitely can recommend the tour with her!!A big thanks to Samaneh !

      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.

          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!

            She did a great tour around the center of Isfahan, telling a lot about ancient sights. It was really new and interesting information, and also she showed a couple of hidden places such as a table cloth factory in the caravan saray or a beautiful small park. Highly recommended as a guide!
