Hamid is very kind and always available to answer questions about the places visited, with great knowledge. At the end of the tour, he also presented me with a folder with practical information about Tehran.

Great tour today with friendly and knowledgeable Hamid. His English is great Hamid has left us with a good understanding of Iran's history and religion through walking around a central part of Tehran. We enjoyed his warm personality and he is very dedicated and serious the sights and and dedicated. New flavours of Tehran were sampled at Rahimich cafe in the Bazaar and a popular restaurant with excellent lunch.

Excellent guide, very knowledgeable, friendly, kind, absolutely respectful, beyond helpful and a true friend motivated by nothing else but making you feel safe and happy throughout your whole stay in Iran. I have truly enjoyed our time spent together and I cannot recommend him enough! Explore Tehran with Hamid, I promise you he will not be in a rush and he will most genuinely put in effort into providing you all the information you need both historically, culturally, religiously even, and locally. He literally went out of his way trying to help me exchange money, and I was honestly amazed by his selfless care and patience. Thank you for your help, time, energy and care, Hamid.

Hamid is a nice guy. Even it was a free walking tour we joined, he took us from our hostel. He knows a lot about Iran history. He was flexible according to our demands during the tour. We are able to reach him even after days of the to ask anything about all İran trip.

A very good tour and a very good guide. Ali was knowledgable and a very interesting guide for our walk in Tehran. He provided an escort to the US Embassy and other points of interest nearby. Highly recommended.
