About Us

Give your taste buds a Persian Adventure.

Due to Persia’s geocraphical location and the many invasions and conquests of the mighty Persian empire, today’s Persian cuisine is enriched with tastes and flavours of Azerbaijani, Kurdish, Caucasian, Turkish, Indian, Greek and Arabic gastronomy.

At Persian Food Tours we offer half-day food adventures, making it perfect to add to even the tightest schedules in Tehran. We’re here to promote Iran’s culinary culture, share the secrets of a Persian kitchen and enrich your trip to Iran with one tasty memory.

This project provides a superb Persian culinary experience in which, after an interesting visit to a traditional market, we began the preparation of a complete 5-course meal. Although expensive, it is a must-do activity for all who visit Tehran and want to do something unforgettable.

We had a great time chatting and joking and left with great memories of our hosts and the food. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about Iranian culture and food from some lovely knowledgable locals.
