I did the tour together with some friends and Abbas in the evening shortly after arriving at the hotel. My idea to do a free walking with tour was a late idea and I organized it with Abbas just a day or two before arriving in Iran. Abbas was quick to respond and the tour was easily organized despite the short notice. The tour itself was informative, flexible and easy going. We visited some main sights, took the subway, the bus and got a good feel for what it might be like to live in Tehran. The highlight of the tour was definitely the outside food market where we enjoyed kebabs and got to meet some locals.

Can definitely recommend a tour with Abbas.

Abbas is an excellent host! He helped me and my friend a lot, he showed us the parts of Tehran which were of our interest, we had very delicious breakfasts with him. Thanks to Abbas, we got to know a bit of Hafiz's and Rumi's poetry. As he says in his motto: know Tehran like a local, this experience has really been how he says in his motto. Though we agreed for a night stay at his place, he hosted us two nights and three days. Thanks for everything, Abbas! Very clean house, warm hospitality, delicious breakfasts and tea, very interesting talks, traditional music and a perfect tour in Tehran. Highly recommended host and tour guide in Tehran!

Hope to see you later again! 😉

I am Abbas, and I live in Tehran. I have been a guide in Tehran since Sep 2015. I’m interested in culture and history, and I am always looking to share it with others.

And of course, I’ll do Free Walking tours! This means that I won’t charge you, like any free walking tour in the world. It is tips based. All you need is to grab your backpack and walk with me along the streets of Tehran. That’s how our journey begins.

How it works:

  1. First, contact me and suggest a day and perhaps let me know what you are interested in.
  2. When I have received your request, I will design a tour plan and describe my suggestion.
  3. After we agree on a good plan, we will meet up and walk the tour together!

What does a typical tour look like?

I will show you some exciting parts of Persian culture and historical sites; for example, museums, coffee shops, restaurants, nature spots, galleries, streets of interest, or entertainment areas.

Each time we go to different places and see different things, it depends on who is joining. Sometimes we go hiking in the mountains just north of Tehran. So, pack your day packs and join these events!

When can we go?

I usually do one tour a week, On daytime on Persian weekends (Thursday and Friday).

The tour date and time are decided upon request.

How much and long the tours?

Since September 2015, I have done various research and advertisements for the project. All were done independently. Your kind tips will support me to continue the project.  

Tips can also be given by bank wire if you prefer and in currencies of Euro, USD or Rials. As I have been questioned about the amount, I decided to add this to my website. The tips are usually between $10 to $30 per day but again that depend on visitors and their level of satisfaction.  

A favour: If you can, please bring me a postage stamps or a symbol from your country so I keep as a memory 😉

I am writing anything about Iran in this blog, and it’s like traveling to this country. My hope is that you may learn some Iranian culture and how to solve typical problems arriving to foreign visitors here.


Hello, Bonjour, Hola!

Abbas 🇬🇧 🇺🇳

Founder and Guide

"Get in touch with Abbas, a Tehran local, to discover the city from the inside out. Once a week there is an event based on the Persian calendar. When this happens, Abbas wants you to strap on your backpack, grab some cash for food and transportation, and set off on a Tehrani adventure! There are no times or routes, Abbas just loves history and culture and wants to explore his city with you. He will even sometimes go hiking into the mountains. Get in touch via his website or social media accounts to see he is free during your stay."

"Conocí a Alireza Ketabi en invierno del 2017.
