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.

I really enjoyed my visit to Kariz. It was very informative with an audio guide through out the walk in Kariz that gave related information to the section we were walking in. It had a museum and small shops that sells decorating stuff, flowers and jewelry. There was a nice cafe at the end of the walk to relax and... More

Before the Roman aqueduct, the people of pre-Islamic Iran had developed their own hydraulic system called a qanat. 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

This is a very interesting site to visit and certainly worth to pay the visit. It provides a good opportunity to see Kish aqueducts very closely and see how people have developed such sophisticated system thousands years ago. At the end of the tour you can have a nice relaxing tea!

The fact that people used to live in this underground city is quite interesting. It has recently been renovated but it originally goes back to 2500 years ago. If you visit this place in hot seasons, the temerature inside is really cool! There are canals inside this tunnel which I've heard boats will be sailing in them soon. Overall it's... More
