He is sincere in ensuring that you have a good understanding of the city and ready to assist with questions you have about getting around Tehran.

Ehsan knew how to tailor your tour depends on your needs and time constraint. I saw how he crunched the most important informations to two hours of walking tour. Either rain or shine he will make sure that you will be satisfied with the tour. Will definitely go with him upon my return in Tehran.

Ehsan was very informative in a fun way, without being boring, spoke excellent english. Much insights as well on food, writing and culture. He helped me out beyond the tour. I needed cash in Rials since I arrived that night and he walked me to an exchangebureau and made it simpler by translating for me.

Si queréis un guía buen currado y capaz, Ehsan es el indicado, su trabajo apasionado, nos adentró en el bazar, a pesar del corto tiempo que teníamos en Teheran, fue más que provechoso. Disfrutamos mucho de su compañía y conocimiento. Totalmente recomendado
