Marzban , Zoroastrian Priest

We were a large group of travelers from India, visiting ancient Zoroastrian sites. Sima was our guide for the first two days only, although we wish she was there throughout our three-week tour. With a smile that can brighten up even the dullest morning and good intricate knowledge about the various spots, Sima took us on a great tour through the Gulestan Palace in Tehran and Persepolis. Besides the historical sites, Sima also has deep knowledge of the spots to get the best local cuisine – away from the drab 5-star buffets. We went to a delightful old tavern to have the famous Dizi – a delicious blend of meat, beans, tomatoes and gravy, all wolfed down with great heaps of nan, finishing of with black tea and a lovely sweet. I would highly recommend Sima to anyone – a single, a family, or a group. She will make you see the real Iran. Period.
