Tehran free walking tours help you visit and explore Tehran with locals and taste it as it really is.

When traveling to big cities, there are many places you’d like to visit, but you may find yourself either badly-off in terms of information or need someone to serve as your guide helping you not waste your time. And sometimes you feel like getting together with others walking through the city to have fun or getting someone to describe the attractions of your choosing.

To do the above, you might need to take part in city-walking tours and to do so, you most probably think of two options: booking a tour in advance, which for certain runs the risk of ending up in you paying money for a service that may turn out to be a total distaste. The other option would be ‘Free Walking Tours’, which carries some advantages like you don’t need to pay money in advance; just book the tour free of charge and go lacing up your walking shoes. In the end, you only tip the tour guide as much money as you wish depending on factors such as the length of the tour, the information you get, the places you visit and your satisfaction. You can also call it ‘pay-what-you-like tours’.

If you happened to find the tour dissatisfying, nobody is going to twist your arm! We will simply shake hands, keep our happy face, and wish each other good luck. You can also leave the tour at the time and place of your choosing, and the reason is highly respected no matter what. We provide a platform for licensed, local, and freelance tour guides to lead tours at no upfront costs. We believe that traveling can be affordable – even free!
