Reading the good reviews and the really positive words that people were speaking about Iran Free Tours on TripAdvisor, we decided to check it by ourselves, and we have to say that the expectations were not disappointed!
Mostafa and his wife Fatima are the hands and minds behind this travel agency that opened is doors couples of years ago. Their first site was Kashan, since is Mostafa’s home town, but now they are expanding also to other cities.
They have tours for any type of traveller, from the free walking tours around the city to private tours (of one night), until tour packages (from one week to ten days). Moreover they are open to make some adjustments according to your budget and your interests, for example we were not interested to see the underground city, since we already saw one, so simply we skipped leaving time for more appealing activities for us.
In the private tour, that is the one that we took, you will have the driver and a local guide just for you all day. We have to say that our guide Alireza, beside the excellent English spoken, was a really great guide. Not just he could answer to any of our doubts or questions, but we had the chance to have pleasant and interesting conversations about Iran during the dinner.
Overall our tour in the Maranjab desert, including one night sleeping over in the caravanserai was a positive experience. Of course cannot be considered a luxury trip, but suitable to discover the beauty of Kashan outback between salt lake and sunset on the sand dune, from the old fortress to the Ali holy shrine.
