The history of Free Walking Tours Tehran project

I’m Abbas and live in Tehran. In September 2015 I started Free Tehran Tour project. Now I want to share the history of this project with you.

Beta: Free Tehran Tour

Back then I just design ed a pamphlet paper and handed it out at meetings with travelers. You can see this pamphlet in it’s original design at my Persian site (abbasm.com).

Version 1. Free Walking Tours Tehran

In April 2016 I registered a .ir domain for my project, and used Tumblr as a content provider. I got a good rank and one traveller from Netherlands (called Heleen) taught me about the concept of Free Walking Tours. After that I started to focus on this particular style of tourism and to be more active on TripAdvisor and Couchsurfing.

Version 2. Free Walking Tours Tehran with Abbas

What you are visiting now is the latest version of this project. Happy to have you here!


Who am I?

I’m interested in culture and history, and I am always looking to share it with others. And of course I’ll do this for free! This means that I won’t charge you. All you need is to grab your backpack and walk with me along the streets of Tehran. That’s how our journey begins.

How it works:

  1. First, just contact me and suggest a day and perhaps let me know what you are interested in.
  2. When I have received your request, I will design a tour plan, and describe my suggestion to you.
  3. After we agree on a good plan, we meet up and walk the tour together!

What does a typical tour look like?

I will show you some interesting parts of Persian culture and historical sites, for example, museums, coffee shops, restaurants, nature spots, galleries, streets of interest, or entertainment areas.

Each time we go to different places and see different things, it depends on who is joining. Sometimes we go hiking in the mountains just north of Tehran. So, pack your day packs and join these events!

When can we go?

I normally do one tour a week. On daytime on Persian weekends (that is Thursday and Friday) and all other days only evenings, 5–10 PM.

The tour date and time is decided upon request.
