We - a group of 3 travelers - spent 12 days on an Iranian round trip with Yanak and were amazed by his unbelievable organizational skills and his passion to show us everything his home country has to offer. The whole trip was very well prepared and started with Yanak picking us up at the airport. From then on we were taken care of 24/7 and wouldn't have to worry about anything anymore. Yanak fulfilled all our wishes and impressed us with all the knowledge he has about all the different sights we visited during our trip. Also all the recommendations regarding accommodation and restaurants were fantastic. Sometimes we picked hotels/hostels and restaurants from our Dumont travel book and every time we regretted not having gone with the recommendations of Yanak.

But most importantly over the whole trip were not the tour guiding skills of Yanak but his kind heart and his passion for what he is doing. Over the course of these 12 days Yanak became a true friend who we all appreciated very much.

I would rate him with 6 stars if possible and can only recommend everybody to choose him for your trip to Iran.

We traveled with Yanak as a group of three friends from Austria for 11 days from Teheran, Kashan, Isfahan to Shiraz. Originally we were looking for a guide & driver, because of traveling convenience... very soon we realized that we found so much more in Yanak and that we could trust 100%
- his proposals & recommendations (for sights, hotels, restaurants, cafés .... way more than any guiding-book)
- cultural & historical knowledge
- empathy for his protégés
- sense of humor
- bargaining skills ;-)
- sense for quality & taste
- adventurous mind
- driving skills (!)
- ambition to make our trip just perfect !!

Yanak was more than a guide, i would rather describe him as friend who happened to be our “tour manager”!

The only thing we would do differently, would be to involve yanak from the very first moment in tour planning!!

I can recommend yanak 100% and I am looking forward to travel with him soon, wether it will be in the Iran again, Austria or any other place!

Best Regards

For those seeking a guide/driver for a Tehran/Iran experience, look no further - I have found him for you!!
During 2 weeks exploring Iran with Yanak in November 2019 I enjoyed the most pleasurable and informative experience possible. Yanak is a wealth of knowledge on the 'Old Persia' and the somewhat complicated circumstances that the country has upon it these days, although one would never notice as these polite, friendly people go about their lives. It is not difficult to build up admiration and respect for them.

Yanak and I developed a warm friendship which will surely endure. You will be pleasantly surprised to discover unexpected facets to Yanak's life away from guiding.

For female travellers, Yanak's close friend Moonsa can act officially as a guide. She is also a fountain of knowledge on old and present day Iran and very enjoyable company.

Yanak was a brilliant help on my trip to Iran! When he wasn’t available to lead a trip himself he organised drivers and guides in other cities for me. He always gave me options and was very attentive to my preferences and budget. On top of everything Yanak gave me great suggestions and offered to help me with anything I might need while in Iran. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a guide/driver or help with planning a trip. Thank you Yanak for an unforgettable time in Iran! The best guide/source of information you could ask for!

We had the opportunity to visit Tehran the last week of June, Reza was assigned as our tour guide for the day, being just one day and to cover many interesting sites, with Reza’s help we were able to select the sites we wanted to cover, we had elderly parents with us Reza, was very cautious about them and proved excellent service, we covered more areas than expected he even spent some more time that was allocated for us. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Iran specially prior empires. Keep up the good work Yanak

Yanak was our tour guide in Iran and accompanied us through the first days in Kashan and Isfahan. We truly appreciate Yanak’s efforts in bringing us closer to the iran culture and also mentality of the local people. His hospitality and kindness really impressed us along our journey. He tries his best to cover as many attractions as possible to meet our request without sacrificing any quality of this journey. His knowledge on Iran history and understanding in contemporary Iran society also added much value to your journey. Thanks Yanak!

Wij zijn met drieën, drie dagen op pad geweest met Yanak. Hierbij hebben we de steden Kashan en Isfahan bezocht begin maart 2022.
Het was een fantastische belevenis mede door Yanak.
Een fijne gids met kennis van zaken, flexibiliteit en de nodige dosis humor.
Je hebt meer het gevoel op weg te zijn met een goede vriend dan een gids.

We hopen nog meer en vaker kennis te mogen maken met Iran en dit te doen onder de begeleiding en met onze vriend Yanak.

Yanak ist schnell - er hilft schnell, denkt und läuft schnell und er löst (alle!) Probleme schnell. Und das alles fast rund um die Uhr, ohne je zu hetzen oder die Ruhe zu verlieren. Ich nannte ihn deshalb schon ab dem zweiten Tag unserer gemeinsamen Reise spasseshalber „Yanak the Runner“ :-)

Yanaks Herz schlägt eigentlich für Outdoor-/Adventure-Touren - Bikeing, Hikeing, Climbing, Canyoning oder Wüstentrips im Iran - aber er kann auch „klassisch“ und er kennt die iranische Kultur und Geschichte „à fond“. Er führte mich im April 2022 von Teheran über Kashan und Yazd nach Schiras und hat mir Land und Leute gezeigt und er hat mir viele Türen geöffnet zu neuen Freunden und sehr netten Menschen! Top-Empfehlung!
Vielen Dank, mein Freund!

Yanak is fast - he helps, thinks and walks fast and he solves any problem before it gets big. And all this (almost) around the clock, without ever rushing or losing the calm. That's why I called him "Yanak the Runner" from the second day of our trip together :-)

Actually, Yanak's heart beats for outdoor and adventure tours - biking, hiking, climbing, canyoning or desert trips in Iran - but he also masters the classic tour and knows Iranian culture and history perfectly well. He led me in April 2022 from Tehran via Kashan and Yazd to Shiraz and showed me the country and its people and opened many doors to new friends and very nice people! Top recommendation!
