This was a good trip as you get to enjoy the city views from Darband and there are so many restaurants to enjoy or just go and have coffee or tea. Best visit during a nice Spring night.

Great place to come eat and some the hookah with your friends. Wedged in a valley between 2 mountains this place offers a cool place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

My wife and I, 75 year old US citizens, plan visit to Iran in Oct and will travel with tour most of the time. While in Tehran we wonder if we will be comfortable/safe walking about on our own, shop and dine, without concerns about confrontations. We also would enjoy a hike above Darband, but wonder about the safety of travel without a local guide. Thanks to anyone who might have advice. Alan and Marylee, Sacramento CA
