Hossein S.

Esfahan, Iran

It's Hossein, Your guide in Esfahan and an Architect and an Urban Designer!

I want to take you by the hand on an unforgettable journey through the city where I was born and that makes my heart beat. I am eager to show you the real ESFAHAN/IRAN, the one that does not appear in guide books or on the Internet. As all cities, Esfahan is shaped by its people, their customs and their way of life. So, what better way to discover it than through the eyes of a native resident, who not only is an experienced Guide (since 2013), but who also holds a degree in architecture (bachelor) and urban design (master's degree)?
For me guiding is not just a job, it is something that I Love, I love traveling and love my city and country, I have lived Esfahan Alley by Alley, Tile by Tile, Brick by Brick. I have found The hidden gems, The Magic of everyday life and The Legendary History of where I Live and want to share these with others.
I believe visiting somewhere is not just about seeing the highlights and completing a checklist, it's about going deep inside of the Culture, Art and Social Life of Locals and to Learn about history and future of the society.
So let me invite you for a walk in the city, to touch the local life and hidden parts of it, to take unforgettable photos (I'm doing photography for more than 10 years as well), and to drink a cup of tea while we are talking about almost anything. Let's feel the city as it is, not as it is shown on the guide books. I promise you will come back again to Iran, soon or later, so remember you will always have a good friend here in Iran that you can count on him!

Credentials

I have a bachelor degree in architecture and a master's degree in urban design and I was the one of top ten students (from 2500 people) in PhD. in Competitive examination, so I'm well educated and knowledgeable about Iranian (and specially Esfahanian) Art,Culture, Architecture, Urban history and Urban forms, etc.
