"Farewell Hassan - the perfect guide." These were the words written in my diary after a wonderful trip I shared with him visiting Western Iran.
Hassan's enthusiasm for Iran's culture and history was infectious and added so much to the enjoyment of my trip. He even knew of Freya Stark's "Valley of the Assassins" which had stimulated my visit. He is an excellent driver, and has the knack of being able to adapt an itinerary to individual interests. It was a memorable, very personalised trip, even with a family meal."
