After some near trip ending mistakes by a certain visa company, we had to stay in Mashhad for a few days during the 2015 Mongol Rally. Vali is an absolute dynamo, infinitely more helpful than our own guide, and may have saved the rally for us with his assistance. The group meals were excellent (especially so after struggling with finding vegetarian food across Iran) and the whole place became a haven for stranded rally teams while we were there. Thank you!
I planned just to spend two nights in Mashhad but thanks to this lovely family I've spend nearly a full week. The place is the perfect place in Mashhad to meet other travellers, learn about carpets, enjoy delicious meals and spend the evenings having loads of fun with Vali. In Vali's guesthouse there is not just one star of the house, all family members make this place as the pleasant place that it is.
