Oh my goddd. I had the best time of my life. I wish the trip never ended. So much fun. Amir is such an amazing friend. He is a baller. Only drawback is that I wish the tour could of 14 months instead of 14 days. 1000% would recommend. Amir is very organised and all the arrangements were perfect without any problems. I would come again with them for Iran tour.

Words can't do justice to the unforgettable trip I've just had around Iran with 1stQuest, but here goes: Epic, eye-opening, breathtaking, life-changing, thrilling, and so much more. Majid, I hope you're out there somewhere reading this because one incredible guide! Super knowledgeable about the places we were exploring, always keen for a stop off at a beautiful landscape, and helpful with the trillion questions I was always asking haha. The tour itself is one-of-a-kind, and for someone that REALLY doesn't like to do tours, it was more than I could have ever asked for. Never felt too organized or too packaged. I always had a say in what I did and saw.

An all too rapid trip through what felt like billions of persian heritage sites plus the enchanting takht-e jamshid. They were so contrasting in character. It was enough to whet our appetite for more!

It made planning of a holiday in the Iran much easier as it would have been difficult to know where to start with so many heritage sites. Our local guides were excellent and their planning and attention to detail was unbelievable. We ended up seeing, learning, and eating more than we had imagined, and we'll be coming back with more time for our new favorite cities next time.

Really enjoyed this tour. Itinerary was cool. Pace was right, and our tour guide was amazing. Will definitely come back to Iran again. Touring Iran was great too, and very different from travelling in Europe. Had I done this tour as a solo traveller it would have costed me a lot more, so got value for my money as well. Will soon book my next trip to Persian. Recommended.
