Hojat makes a difference on a visit to Iran. It is by far the best tourist guide I have had in all my trips around the world. His knowledge of the Persian culture, his human quality, his patience, his desire to show his country, his kindness, his good humor and his honesty make Iran a better country without a doubt. I am sure there is no better guide in Iran than him. Thank you very much Hojat and thank you very much to your son for making our trip unforgettable! Perfect trip to Iran with Hojat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias dear Eddga. This is our mission to find the priorities and preferences of tourists and try to fulfill them as far as we can. We had quality time together as well as visiting so many places and monuments. I think it was a good cultural and spiritual discovery in Iran. All the best.

Hojat is just the best guide I have ever met traveling the world. Huge experience with foreign tourists, knowledge of Iran history, architecture, always willing to help and organize the best experience for the tourists. The highest level of hospitality you can imagine. We just felt absolutely safe and comfortable. Also I have to say that Iran is an amazing country. History, traditions, architecture, music, food. We are amazed by people. They are so open and friendly!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My great pleasure that you had a nice experience in Iran. Fortunately, you had the opportunity to feel the real Iran. Iran is absolutely different from what is shown in mass media. Hope to see you again. Sincerely yours. Hojat

My tour with Hojat was amazing. He seemed to know everything about everywhere we went, and he was happy to have discussions with me about whatever I wanted to ask about, whether it be the tour sites, politics, Islam, history, the Persian language, or anything else. But beyond that, he has such a positive attitude toward life and toward everyone around him. He is friendly to everyone. And the experience was very exciting. I highly recommend him as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure that you liked our services. We had an enjoyable time together. This is the advantage of tourism to change the attitude of the world toward Iran and Iranians. Hope to see you again.

Tour: Shiraz-Isfahan-Kashan-Tehran, Tehran, Iran
Date: Oct 28/18

I have traveled extensively and my Iranian trip with Hojat was one of the most memorable. As an American I always felt safe and secure. Hojat is an exceptional guide. He often acts as the government's guide and translator when dignitaries visit Isfahan. All of my requests were accommodated. Throughout the trip Hojat modified the itinerary to include things he knew I would like. Everything went smoothly. Obtaining the visa was easy & simple. I wish I could have such a great guide for all of my trips.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great experience to accompany you. Your positive and spiritual attitude toward this trip made it fascinating for both of us. Hopefully, your review helps other tourists who are interested in Iran, to realize their trip and differentiate between negative propaganda in social media and real Iran. Hope to see you again dear Steve.

Our guide Hojat was simply perfect for our needs. I strongly recommend him to anybody who wants to take the maximum out of time spent in Esfahan. If I could give 6 stars, I would. Thank you so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Erhard, I am so pleased and honored that I got to know you.The most rewarding gift is satisfaction of my customers and making a memorable trip for them. Because they spent time and money and I must care about everything related to the tour as mush as I can. Fortunately we had enjoyable time together. You were really kind and open-minded and helped me to handle the tour effectively. Hope to see you again. Sincerely yours, Hojat

Sharing this experience with Hojat was something wonderful! In a matter of fact, me and my wife have no words to describe how marvellous were these days in Iran in the company of Hojat. He was much more than a guide, he became a friend who introduced us to iranian religions, culture and society, explaining aspects of the art and history. Before we decided to go to Iran, I confess, we had so many doubts. But, the experience showed us a lovely country and everything was just perfect. Thank you, Hojat!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Junior and Juliana, It was great to get to know you with full of positive energy and enthusiasm to know about Iran. That was really kind of you to write such a nice compliments. Fortunately you liked your trip and our services and that's the best thing a guide can hear. We will try to reinforce our strong points and work on the weak points. Hope to see you again. All the best to you lovely couple.

Throughout the time I spent travelling with Hojat his knowledge regarding the historical sights we were visiting astounded me. Hojat is knowledgeable, personable, great company and a skillful storyteller. What became obvious to me, day by day as we visited the historical monuments, was that Hojat's stories were complex, interconnected, and, over 8 days I had the pleasure of hearing the story of Iran.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Louise, That is really kind of you. You were amazingly patient, grateful, respectable and respectful. It was an honor for me to accompany you during the trip. By the way I am thankful of Toursbylocals team who invented a new way of connection between tourists and guides. Hope to see you soon Hojat

Very knowledgeable and professional, his English is outstanding & anticipates your needs and requests. We drove from Tehran to Isfahan, stopping by Kashan & Abyaneh. He's a good driver too, important in Iran. We were in Iran during the days of remembrance so many places to visit were closed. Yet, Hojat brought us to various to various ceremonies where there were no other tourists. We had some other guides on our trip, and Hojat was by far the best! We can thoroughly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Loicque, It is a great pleasure for a guide to make enjoyable moments for tourists. I enjoyed to be with you and your nice family as well. Hope to see you again. Sincerely yours Hojat

The tour has actually being done by Emad, as Hojat was busy because of new year. Emad is a very professional and friendly guide - eager to explain the past and present of Iran. I would certainly recommend him to everybody.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much dear Loris. After handling many tours by my son (Emad), there is almost no difference between me and him. So happy to get your kind encouraging review.

We had an amazing tour in Esfahan! Hojat picked us up from the airport and spent with us more than two hours to try to find a restaurant open as our flight was delayed! We didn't take the standard itinerary as we wanted to see the real life in Iran, so he recommended to have lunch with locals which was a brilliant idea! As a guide was excellent with a deep knowledge in Iranian culture with his personal touch! We liked it so much when he sang at the mosque so we can hear the echo! We highly recommend Hojat

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stalo, It is my pleasure to see you had memorable trip to Isfahan. I try my best to meet the tourists' desires and interests and hopefully it almost happened. I myself also had fascinating city tour with you. Hope to see you again.
