The Experience

Welcome our guests from more than 50 nationalities. We need someone to take care of them, make sure their room is ok, and they are feeling convenient. Do the check-in for the guests, make a tea for them, and try to tell them about our tours. Taking order of meals, and making sure he/she is welcoming enough so that guests do not hesitate asking them questions. Basically, being hospitable! Once upon a time we need a hand in cleaning either.

This was my first volunteering experience and I couldn't have asked for anything better! Mohammad is a great host, times and tasks are flexible and Varzaneh is a very authentic desert town. I had the chance to visit amazing places but, most importantly, to connect with the culture and meet some amazing people, both tourists and locals. I would definitely recommend this experience at Negaar Guesthouse :)

Mohammad was a great host and taught me so much about Iranian culture. He explained the history to me and teached me about Persian medicine. I was there around new year and got to see some traditional celebrations which was very nice. Also the desert is so beautiful!! My tasks were pretty easy and I had enough time to see everything else. I can only recommend staying with him:)

What an amazing experience! Mohammad taught me a lot of things, about culture, religion, Persian medicine...and showed me some of the most beautiful spots around the city and its curiosities! ( You have to see the night sky in the desert, it's impressive!!)
Varzaneh has a lot of history and it's the perfect place to met local people. Every person that I met here is really nice and kind. I'm happy that I could come and hope one day come back to visit!

I know the real Iran, the real people, traditions, humor and the food.
It has been an awesome time,people in the guesthouse have so big hearts as the sun.
I found many friends. I was at home.
I admire all the effort that they make to be better.
Unfortunately it was low season and we didn't have so many things to do. But we can share a lot of chats, food and really good moments.
Thank you guys (Abu, Amin, Hassan, Mohammad and your family) for open your heart for me and give me beautiful moments. I feel so lucky.
I wish you all the best, always. Be happy.

It was an amazing time with Celeste! Really glad she came over! And certainly believed that she did a good job. Helping me with translation, cleaning and taking care of the guests were certainly satisfying, and she is always welcome to come over!

Always welcome!
