I would highly recommend touring Iran with IranSmiles. Ali is knowledgeable and insightful, will share a wealth of information about his home country and answer any question. I liked that Ali was flexible with itineraries and will arrange sightseeing around the things you want to see. He also helped us with other things such as restaurant recommendations, shopping and further travel plans in Iran. He’s personable and easy to get on with and has a good sense of humour. We had a really good couple of days and definitely got more out of our sightseeing by being with him than if we went on our own. I’m keeping his details to recommend to others !
Ali spent with us (two adults and a six-years-old) two days in Esfahan and then drove us to Yazd. All the time he was both very friendly and very professional. We had an excellent time and enjoyed his guiding, practical help, but first of all his company. We hope to see him again one day in beautiful Iran!
Ali is an excellent guide very friendly and professional.
We called on him during our visits to Yazd and for our transfer from Yazd to Shiraz with a stop in Pasargad and Persepolis.
In addition, Ali knows the best restaurants to discover the Iranian specialties !!! I highly recommend it! Thank you Ali!
We had a trip with Ali two weeks in the North West of Iran.
He collected us from the airport and handed us beautifull flowers. A good start. Ali likes to drive. You can feel it. So you are sure you are comfortable and safe.
He had a good en comfortable car. A Duster. We listened to his music in the car and after that we could listen to our music by blue tooth. Ali was a good guide. Always on time and polite. He knew to visit interesting places. We liked it very much. We visited local people. Our wishes. He dit it all. When it was warm he bought to drink water. When we wanted to eat, he arranged a lunch. When there were some problems with our room, he solved them. He knew local guides. For internet in the dat or in the hotel we cold use his modem. We had a good holliday because Ali was with us. We can recommend him as a good friendly helpfull and a safe driver and more than that.
ALI, thank you for that all.
We went with Ali and some friends to the dessert to watch the milky way in a night a lot of meteors were falling. We had an amazing experience. Everything was arranged perfectly and the milky way was just amazing! Thank you Ali for bringing us!
I'm from Switzerland and I did my 3 IranTrip and Yazd was one of my favorite Cities to explore this time and lucky my Ali Khoshkam was my Guide. He made a great Job, he showed me Yazd, the old part a lot of culture and history, he new everything and at night he showed me the new part of Yazd, it was a other world! It was fantastic. He's company was very nice and we had also fun and good conversation too. We where visiting Chack Chack/Meybod. He's knowledge about this places is very good and I could feel he loved what he's doing :))) I can highly recommend Ali and he always have a surprise for you. Thank's again and see you next time!
We met Ali in Yazd that showed us around, full of many stories to tell. He's a very interesting person that I highly recommend not only to have a tour, but also to immerse you within the everyday life of Yazd's habitants.. the delights of a trip.
Having admiring the culture and the history of Iran for a long time, we finally set out to visit and luckily met with Ali Khoshkam. He was our tourist guide for the entire 14 day of sightseeing. We are a couple from Hong Kong and would like to recommend this young man here for all the work he had done as a guide. He is most enthusiastic, considerate and knowledgeable about what we want to know and see. We would definitely have Ali to be our guide next time when we come again.
Ali is an extremely professional and passionate guide. He was very helpful and anknowledgeable thoughout the whole tour and in every situation. Iran and all the Iranian cities visited were great, but Ali was surely the added value! I would strongly recommend him as guide to whoever is planning a trip to Iran!
I'll never forget Ali secretly helped me to choose and buy an Iranian poetry book to surprise my boyfriend! While going around Iran, Ali seemed to enjoy the trip with us and not only giving us information. He was friendly, knowledgeable and, most importantly, passionate about his country. Strongly recommended!
Ali was fantastic! Knowledgeable and organized but also fun and easy to get along with. Our Lut desert excursion was a highlight as were the many impromptu pomegranate feasts and visits to cozy tea houses :)
Ali was the best guide my husband and I have ever had. His knowledge of Iran was priceless. He went above and beyond to ensure we had the trip of a lifetime. Thank you again, Ali, we can’t wait to come back to your beautiful country!
Ali's tour was perfect. My girlfriend and I spend a whole day with Ali for a private tour from yazd to Shiraz and we also visited Percopolis. Ali knows so much about Iranian history and he's very fun and chilled guy to spend your time with. If you visit Iran and you want a private tour, you should call Ali for sure!
Ali was our guide during a tour across Iran in 2016. He was a warm, knowledgeable and accommodating host. Ali also had a great sense of humour, and helped make our trip to Iran a memorable and enjoyable one. He went out of his way to answer our questions and to give us insights into areas which were of interest to us, as opposed to things on the typical tourist map.
