We spent six weeks in Iran. We stayed with Mohammad Jalali in his home/home stay Tak Taku in the rocky Dasht-e Kavir desert. It was a delight to have all our meals with the family, wonderful varied home cooked meals by Mohammad's sister in law. We met his family and other friends from the community. The food was true local food, and healthy and plentiful. The guesthouse, like a homestay is in an ancient 500 year old village. Mohammed was our he helped us as well as all his guest to visit and sleep in the desert, taking total care for safety and enjoyment.
And Mohammed helped us to plan our trip, and guide us to the places that we wanted to visit, remote regions of different ethnicities and all the places were excellent choices for our ways of travel. Many of Tak Taku's guests are bikers and individual young travellers, we are a mature couple and at home, and enjoyed meeting so many lively and adventurous travellers. THe guesthouse is spotless, comfortable full of local pottery and weavings. This is a guesthouse for all travelers who like to visit more authentic places and meet locals. We felt so close to Mohammad that we changed our itinerary and returned at the end of our trip to stay another three nights in Toudeshy Cho at Tak Taku
