About the tour

In this tour, your guide Arian will tell you about history of the Golestan Palace as we walk together in the small beautiful garden which is surrounded by walls covered with colourful tiles. The Golestan Palace is the former royal Qajar complex in Iran's capital city, Tehran. One of the oldest historic monuments in the city of Tehran, and of world heritage status. In the south of Golestan Garden there is a tall building. Due to the high wind catchers above it, this building is known as the Wind Catcher Hall. This building was very important and usually the cabinet held the meetings there. Arian will also bring you inside the building of the wind catchers to learn more about it.

Meet your local guide


Arian graduated as a chemical engineer in 1992 and after twenty years working in this field , she came to the conclusion that she could serve her country as a tour guide much more better than an engineer! So she enrolled in a tourism institute and started a new life. She found that she should have chosen it at the start and voila here she is. Arian is a member of WFTGA ""world federation of tourist guide association"" and during the convention 2017 in which Iran was the host of more than 300 tourist guides from different countries, Arian was one of the volunteer tour managers. She has experience with European tourists in Iran and Iranians tourists in Europe as well. Arian believes by doing he rjob perfectly, she can help to make a better world, full of peace.

Arian has been guiding since Jan 2014

This was a great tour and it was nice to see Arian's husband joining her at the end. The ceramics, mirrors and history of the wind tower building was truly superb. Thank you ...

We just visited the Golestan Palace, which was the official residence of the then royal family. We visited the interior of the clocktower, but mainly saw the building from the outside. Arian spent a long time focusing on the beautiful mosaics and tile work. She was thorough and knowledgeable. I look forward to seeing more of Tehran.
