Alireza is a very nice, friendly person. He took us to the hidden parts of Grand Bazaar which is very difficult to find even as a local. He even helped us with shopping tips and recommendation of local restaurants. Alireza was so devoted to give a good tour that he spent more time with us than scheduled.

Alireza was an amazing guide ! He really changed my stay and vision of Téhéran ! As a solo traveler I didn't really know how to begin the visit of this huge city so I booked a tour with Alireza. He was very patient because I get lost trying to find a SIM card in the bazar and I was late to his appointment. Alireza is a very calm person, very interesting, very respectfull. I know nothing about history but as he explains very clearly and put his heart on it, he easily shared with me his passion of Iranian culture ! I was the only tourist for this tour, Alireza adapted his visit to my wishes, we had very interesting talks about many subjects, I am so impressed by him and his life. You will really gain to know him ! :) I wish he could have more tourists in the future... Wish you all the best Alireza, I will not forget you !

We had a tour in Tehran with Alireza, and we really enjoyed it. Alireza speaks English very good and knows many things about the city. We were only 2 on tour, so it was like private one. Alireza showed us many interesting places in Tehran and told us a lot about them and about life here. Also he helped us to communicate with locals at Bazaar and the post office. It was really nice to meet you, Alireza! Wish you a lot of tourists to show them Tehran.
