Daily tours to the Valley of the Assassins. Visiting the Castles of Lambesar and Alamut, Ovan Lake and the Canyons of Andaj. The drivers are all professional and experienced drivers giving you the feeling of safety and joy of the all-windy roads of Alborz mountain range.
One of the best tour ever done! Alamut valley offers gorgeous landscapes and Hosein is the best of the best as guide. Perfect organization, very friendly atmosphere, great knowledge of the valley. Hosein speaks a perfect English and he's learning italian. One cannot expect a better experience.
We made a two day tour in Alamut Valley and one day tour in the beautiful village of Masuleh. Great experience!

This house we find much less appealing both historically and architecturally. Its exterior looks dull and plain while its interior is more impressive with delicate decoration typical in Qajar style. But compared with other Qajar old houses in Kashan, Shiraz, Esfahan, or even Tehran, we think this house is much less details and impressive. May not worth a visit unless you will have no chance to visit other cities. Otherwise you can skip this one.

Nice place with nice park. Beautiful building. I found Qazvin surprisingly nice with lots of nice architecture.

The Qazvin Friday Mosque is one of the oldest in Iran. It was constructed in 807 AD under the Abbasids and is said to be built on the foundations of a Fire (Zoroastrian) Temple. The courtyard was built in 1106 AD under the Seljuks. The mosque is massive but was closed with most of the facade covered in scaffolding as a major renovation appears under way. There was a very basic little archaeology museum there in a corner of the courtyard and the curator was so grateful to see someone in there he offered us all mint tea. At all these regional places we were often the only tourists. There were enamel and gold tiles from the Ilkhani period and figurines from the 2nd millenium BC.

The lake is smaller than you think and the area around it has been cleared for people to drive up to the lakeside to ave picnics. Thought there would be more bird life but there were frogs and beautiful reflections of the surrounding Mountains on the lake.
The amount of litter around was disappointing.

Small and cute - makes you wonder. However, the interior is currently a shop selling jewelry, nothing much to do with any religion of sort. Not somewhere I would remember for long...

Alamut region is famous for Hassan Sabbah Castle and each year many tourists visit the castle, Ovan lake and the spectacular nature, specially during Spring and Summer.
Amir has been a great guide, a great guy and extremely helpful in any occasion. The landscape around alamut is world class. Gotta go!
