When you go to Kish Island, during a day tour you will go to Harireh.. which is a very nice and old city in the heart of the island.. it's amazing that how people around 800 years ago could match their life style with the hot weather and the island conditions.. every house has a complete service, kitchen, rooms, etc...

There is a 1/2 day island tour that includes the Greek ship, the underground city, the green tree complex and the duty free shopping. Enjoy it all

This ghanat made by an iranian engineer and is a tourist trap; if you want to see a real ghanat go to Yazd.

Kish attractions are not really interesting especially after you've seen other historical places in Iran. There is not much to see at this site either, these are just the ruins of a palatial house. I wouldnt call it impressive.
