Ramadan, our tour guide, picked us up at the hotel at the previously informed time. We were a small group of 4 people in total. Ramadan spoke German very well and was able to give us a very good and interesting tour. All in all a perfect day that was definitely worth it.

This was my first guided tour as I am not a fan of it. Pickup was on time. Shan is very hospitable guide and he is well informed about the locations. He is happy to answer your questions and cares if you have special requests (like I wanted to pray in the mosque too). He also offers his help for taking your pictures for you if you are alone. Big thanks to Shan for making this experience memorable. These places has rich cultural backgrounds and I was amazed by the brilliant construction.

We had really great time. Pick-up and drop of worked just perfectly. There was no additional costs on the tour, everything mentioned in description was included. Our guide helped us a lot, he know a lot about the history of the country and attractions we visited or saw on our way. Besides that I have to mention his photography skills, he know all the photo spots and he is a great photographer, photos of us he took are just amazing. Thank you very much Maaz Khan for being such a great guide. You are the best!
