Parnian was born in 1960, is married and has three grown-up children. She has a BA in English Literature from Allameh University, Tehran. She is a licensed guide and has been working for Pasargad Tours since 1984, leading many of our English-speaking groups and individuals. She has a thorough knowledge of Iran's history, culture, religions and all other aspects of life in Iran. Her own interests are Pre-Islamic Architecture, Pre-Historic Period and Mythology. She has a warm and friendly personality and is very popular with the groups she leads. She was awarded the title of "Model English-speaking Tour Guide" by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in 2011. During the summer, when it is off-season for incoming tours, she works at the Narenjestan Hotel Complex on the Caspian as Events & Catering Manager. She also leads Iranian groups to other countries. This is a feedback we had on Parnian from a participant in one of her groups: "Our guide Parnian was exceptional. All along our trip, she gave interesting and accurate information about the places we visited, she was very courteous and helpful, and for sure she contributed to the success of our splendid tour in Iran".
