Unfortunately the tour guide did not show after confirming the booking via email- their reasoning was they called and weren’t able to connect with me so they cancelled what they thought it was a “FAKE” booking (their wording in caps). I’ve used Guru in the past in Europe and haven’t had the same experience and will use Guru again.

Eshan is the best tour guide in Teheran. We went to the bazaar, drank tea. Toured Arabic and Jewish quarters, among other things. He gave us extra time for going to change money and went to Argo Farctory Museum bar for non alcohol beer. He is a very friendly and open person with so much knowledge about his country and the world! We really enjoyed his company and really recommend this tour.
