Hi. I am Farzane. Do you like to hear my story? And how did I become a guru tour guide? I love exploring cultures through art and histories. When I was a teen, I used to read many books in philosophy, sociology, literature, history and other human science fields. My curiosity to discover the human world lead to pass all my times in my room with numerous books in these fields, and following stories of various nations. After growing up, I gradually left my tiny room and I decided to experience the real world instead of just reading it. When I did my first solo travel to Isfahan, while I was wandering around Naghesh-e-Jahan square in an early morning under a shiny blue sky, an inner inspiration motivated me to live what I really like and that is how I entered into the tourism world. I followed my heart, and now I am working in a tourism company named “IranSense”. This job is exactly in line with my interest, as we are doing our best to help travelers discover the real Iran. I mostly work on content creation, but since I always liked to experience being a tour guide, I decided to begin with introducing my own city where I was born and grew up. Wandering around lovely Shiraz, the city of gardens and literature, and narrating its behind stories to others, are really joyful for me. Join me if you want to visit shiraz and its wonderful sightseeing, with a local person who can reveal its secrets for you.
