Very interesting tour about a culture I know very little about. Farzaneh is a very knowledgeable guide. I was so intrigued by part 1 I signed up to part 2.

The information that was being given on the different palaces in Persepolis and the history behind its construction and demise was clear and so interesting. I learned so much from this tour and looking forward to part 2.

In spite of the patchy sound and video quality, due to 48 degrees heat and which wasn’t the fault of Farzaneh, this tour was so enlightening and fascinating. Iran isn’t marketed as a tourist destination in the UK, so to be able to see the wondrous site of Persepolis, which dates back to the 500s BC, was a real privilege. Something I will probably never see in person, I found it incredible. Farzaneh was particularly knowledgeable and charming. This was part 1 of 2 at this site and definitely needed to be split into two, not only because of the wealth of information provided, but more because of poor Farzaneh who needed a break mid way to cool herself and her devices. Thank you so much.

it was very interesting with plenty of historical information, but some I missed due to the connection issues which were not her fault.
