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.
