This was my first tour with Leila. It was absolutely wonderful. She had so much information and even had links to images prepared. I truly enjoyed myself.

Leila did a good job of a very limited opportunity to visit Tehran’s monument. Her knowledge of the history was informative. I would like to go to other areas of Iran. Persepolis, Shiraz, Esfahan and Hamadan. All places of great historical interest. I look forward to touring Quasvin next week. Thank you Leila for the tour.
