Me and my wife are frequent travellers, this year we decided to visit Iran. In the beginning we hesitated a little because of the cliché imposed by western society towards Muslim Countries, but after careful research we realized there was nothing to worry about. Nevertheless we decided to search for a professional guide. After reading some reviews on TripAdvisor we found the guide who we think was ideal for us: Moein. We contacted him by e-mail and he answered almost immediately. He's been very kind and helpful to answer all our questions about the trip by email and WhatsApp. We're a couple very interested on history, arts, architecture, culture and lifestyle of every country we visit and we asked to Moein to set us a trip with a focus to these features. He organised for us a wonderful 12 days tour touching the beautiful and different cities of central Iran responding completely to our needs. He managed professionally everything, from hotels booking to the attraction's entrance and led us to discover Iran with his car explaining everything in a perfect english, moreover he gave us the possibility to change the plan to our will (but original plan was fine as it was). We remained astonished on landscapes, fascinated by the great Mosques and impressed by the millenary history of this Country and his cultural and ethnic diversity. Moein with his calm and patience made us feel always at ease, he reflects the character of iranian people: kindness, politeness, willingness. We didn't find nowhere traces of fanaticism nor even events could made us concern, we never had the feeling to be unsafe, contrarily to what is said by the western media Iran is the safest place in the World. Thanks to him we learned a lot about iranian lifestyle and their relationships with religion, we discovered even how Persian arts have influenced western society like music, architecture, sciences. This journey have thoroughly enriched our lives and I suggest everybody to visit Iran and discover all his beauty with the competence, experience and friendliness of Moein. Thank you my friend, we hope to meet you soon again!

My husband and I spent two weeks last september in Iran and we had a very fantastic time with Moein. He was our guide/driver and he arranged our trip according to our wishes and our needs. He speaks a perfect English so we didn't have any issue in understanding each other and he told us a lot of interesting things about the attractions we visited and about Iranian culture and habits. We spent very beautiful days with him and everything in our trip was great: hotels, restaurants and all arrangements. We had also enough time for visiting everything we desired and we never felt to be in a hurry: so we also had the opportunity to speak with a lot of Iranians and discover their thinking. This is why we strongly recommend Moeim and be sure you'll have a great experience in Iran. Iran is a magic country: not only a lot of beautiful sites (most of them are Unesco sites) to visit in a very safe way, but you'll discover very friendly and kind people. We miss them a lot and we'll go in Iran again!

We are travellers from Australia and have just spent thirteen days with Moein doing a tailored made route from Tehran to Shiraz with several stops. We spent some time online with him agreeing the detail of the itinerary and accommodation, and always found Moein to be helpful, cooperative, and full of useful advice on how to make the trip and itinerary better. In fact when we did the trip we found that the hotel selections we made against his advice were wrong (don't trust Tripadvisor) and we would have been better to take his advice. Before committing, we spoke via Whatsapp and found Moein to be polite, constructive, and responsive to our comments. When we met him in person all those characteristics continued for the journey, and we truly enjoyed his company. He speaks excellent English, is interesting to talk to, and is committed to giving his guests a great experience of Iran. On some issues where we are unusually fussy (mainly hotels) he was always doing his best to please. Our luggage did not arrive with us when we landed in Tehran and Moein was a fantastic help in getting our bags sent to us. More generally, travel in Iran is quite easy and safe. Some of the traffic on the roads is a bit scary, but Moein is a safe driver and has a new car with air bags so we felt safe with him. People you meet on the street are always friendly and often very happy to talk and welcome visitors to Iran. They are aware of the bad press they get in the western newspapers and many Iranians told us that contrary to the media they were delighted that we were visiting their country and hoped we enjoyed our trip. Even if they knew no English they often bent their heads with their hand over their heart as a welcome gesture. We found them incredibly warm and hospitable. And, a big plus, no pestering from touts except from some carpet retailers. The sights of Iran were fabulous too. Just note that hotels can be lower standard than you can get in other countries, so taking Moein's advice in that respect is recommended. He also found money exchangers where we got about nearly double the rate of the official exchange rate. We based our decision to go with Moein largely on Tripadvisor reviews, plus the quality of his responses when we were negotiating a possible itinerary. He exceeded our expectations, as did Iran.

We had the pleasure of a 15-day tour of Iran with Moein in August of this year. I first contacted Moein after reading TripAdvisor reviews and visiting his Persia Passenger website. Between us we organised a very full tour, covering all the usual destinations and a few not so populated locations. Moein is very experienced and knowledgeable on all things Iran, and for us was the perfect choice as our tour driver/guide - he is a very safe driver, a necessity on Iran’s roads! The accommodation he suggested and booked for us was faultless, sometimes amazing (the caravanserai in Marand was exceptional) and always comfortable after a long day of travel and sight-seeing. Moein was always on time and flexible and there was no expectation that we should stick with the plan if something off the itinerary came up. Most of all tho, we had some great conversations and Moein’s sharp sense of humour made the tour good fun! We travel frequently from the South Pacific and Iran is by far the safest country we have ever travelled in. Despite biased negative reports from the western media, we felt safe at all times and enjoyed seeing families out for picnics and generally just getting on with their lives. At no point did we feel anything other than comfortable and at ease. The people are welcoming, super friendly and always ready for a chat. We would like to travel to Iran for a second tour to see more of the incredible places that time prevented, and if we are lucky enough to do so we will definitely look to enjoy Moein’s company again. Cheers Moein!

I've spent half of August in Iran with my parents and I'd say that has been a great vacation! Moein brought us not just in famous cities, but also in very peculiar villages and little towns. We enjoyed sharing our culture with our guide and compare Iranian traditions with the italian ones. The primary concern of Moein is to build a friendship with his clients, not just being your guide, he likes to have lunch or dinner in your company and having nice conversations with you. We were also very glad to have the last day as a guide his wife Ati, she was very professional. Iran was a different vacation, I felt very involved in its population, surely I ll come back in future.
