As American tourists we weren't sure what to expect of the Kish experience but had a great time, and this stop was one of the high points. If you go I would suggest talking to the friendly and very educated/informative guides who give great insights not only into the location you are at but the country in general.

A qanat is a series of vertical wells, built along a gentle slope to filter water toward arid areas. The Kish Qanat is an excellent example of this ancient technology and provides visitors with an opportunity to get face to face with... More
