Hello, (Hola! ) Salam! This is Pourya From Iran , I am working as a tour operator for more than 3 years , My previous guests said I am a safe driver but we are not going to drive here with Guru, So you can count on my knowledge about hidden part of the city. Originally from Abadan City of Oil and live here(Shiraz) for many years. Now I am trying to find more friends and also show our guests a unique aspects of Shiraz like Shiraz beautiul Mosques and Gardens and Also Shiraz special Sweets and deserts ( Faloodeh Shiraz ) or Carrot juice and Icecream , if it happens some Shiraz Wine.
Please leave your Number or Text me on Whats app +98 917 115 7020 for confirmation.
tour was cancelled, since Pourya had a more commercial interesting business to attent to. Next 2 days were also not possible. He suggested another -paid- tour. This is first time I'm very disappointed about the supposedly free tour, since there was not any. On top of it: I paid a handsome 200 euro cash for some trips (on which the trip he did himself he skipped 1 item and was very frequent busy phoning), since he runs his own travelbusiness so he could have been more appreciative and honour the made agreement for walking tour.
Response from Pourya:I am so sad to saw your review like this and being so unfair. Because it was totally unfair and include some words which was not true ! First of all I did not skip any item during the travel to Shiraz. ( stops Persepolis-Necropolis-Pasargad) was included and done all of them. I even bought you coffee two times which was not included. Secondly you paid for the transfers which does not have any relation to the free tours here and they have been done properly as you mentioned. In addition, me talking on the phone does not have any conflict with you being transfer to the Shiraz, besides you smoking inside the car for 5 hours ( more than a pack as I noticed) all the time could be a problem. Finally I had some family issue so was not able to attend to a tour just for 1 person.
Pourya is a charismatic wave of energy. He has a great personality and I don’t think you will ever find a tour guide like him. He is the perfect guide for a REAL Persian nightlife experience. He was showed me a true Persian nightlife experience that I would have never been been able to experience on my own or find in any guidebook.
He also knows great places to get the best Shiraz street food!!
I would highly recommend him ☺️
I definitely recommend the interesting night walk that Pourya offers. To the beauty of the places we visit, we must add the willingness to give any information on any subject you want to discuss: geographical, historical, economic or about daily and social life of the city.
Pourya took us in his own car to the tomb of Hafez, Coran Gate and mausoleum of Ali-Iba Hamzeh. We enjoyed together the fantastic beauty of night lighting.
It was really a pleasure to try a special Shiraz sweet desert in his company and diner in a traditional restaurant where we learned to use the cutlery when eating Iranian tradicional meals correctly!
We will never forget the time we spent together with him. Do not miss this tour if you have time, it is a very prepared guide and a very cooperative speaker.
