General

How we got started

The story of TakTaku Guest House – I was born in the historical village of Toudeshk, a camel trading post on the old Silk Road in the deserts of Central Iran.
When I was a child, I didn’t know about any other world, I thought that everywhere was the same, that everywhere was Toudeshk. I would go to the highway to see people passing by. While the other children played, I was always on the highway, watching.
Sometimes, especially in the winter, I would see cyclists, loaded with luggage and speaking different languages, arriving before nightfall.
Sometimes they would stop and ask me something. They would always say ‘Hello’ but I didn’t understand ‘Hello’! I didn’t know who these people were or what they were doing.
I would see them go to the store to buy food and water and then they would retreat to the middle of nowhere to sleep in tents and sleeping bags. I saw so many of them!

When I got to secondary school, the first time my English teacher said ‘Hello’ I jumped up like a spring and told him I’d heard this word but didn’t know the meaning. He asked me where I’d heard it and I answered from the highway, from the mysterious cyclists.
I told him that I didn’t know where any of these people came from. My teacher told me they were foreigners, that they came from other countries.
I asked him why they were sleeping in tents and he told me that it was because they didn’t have a place to stay. Then my teacher started to talk about them and other countries and cultures.

 

Hosting foreigners in a rural Guest House

I was tired of seeing the same faces every day – small town syndrome! So I told my teacher that I wanted to host foreigners in my home but I needed a key. The language was the key. He taught me conversational English. I wrote a few sentences on a piece of paper and went and waited by the highway. People changed my name to ‘Crazy Mohammad’ because I would wait there for a long time, watching the road.
Even during bad weather, I was there, trying to ‘fish’ cyclists and invite them to my house. I would ask truck and bus drivers if they’d seen any cyclists that day and when they answered ‘yes’, I was happy and would wait for them to arrive. When they arrived I took my piece of paper and said ‘Hello’ and they all answered ‘Hello’. Finally, I had the opportunity to host one of them and he taught me about cyclists and what they needed. I learnt much from him and others after him.

 

We welcome you to TakTaku Guest House

In 2012 I bought a ruined house and spent the next three years renovating. I now run the business with my mother and father and we welcome guests into our family. So I finally fulfilled my dream to offer a place I could meet and talk to new people. It has also given Toudeshk a place on the map – providing valuable income for the village. Since starting Tak-Taku Homestay, I have hosted thousands of people from all over the world in my home. Now all the people of Toudeshk know more about foreigners and all of them can say ‘Hello’! In the village I am no longer known as ‘Crazy Mohammad’, I am now ‘Mohammad Tourist’.

Activities

Tak Taku Guesthouse is the starting point for many activities and tours. We offer you unique experiences in the desert of central Iran away from city noise where you can experience the authentic and traditional Iranian way of life.

- Village tour
Take a walk around the 500-year-old village of Toudeshk-Cho where Tak Taku Guesthouse is situated. You can learn about the architecture, the lifestyle of a village and its ancient irrigation system. You can also take a look at the traditional carpet weaving (Nain-style) that is still practiced by some villagers. If you wish, we will gladly offer you a guided tour through the village or provide you with bicycles.

- Trips into the hills and mountains
Tak Taku Guesthouse is surrounded by hills and mountains that offer short and long hiking trips. Within a 25-minute walk, you can reach the top of the close-by hills and get a beautiful view of Toudeshk and the surrounding mountains.

If you wish to climb higher mountains, we can accompany you to the foot of the "Black Mountain" where you can start your hike to the top and enjoy a breathtaking view from 3000 m above sea level.

- Dasht-e Kavir Desert
Camping: the desert offers various unique experiences. In spring and summer, we offer all-inclusive camping tours (tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, food etc.) with local experts in the desert. Because of its location far from cities, the sky above the desert gives you a clear view on millions of stars at night.

Sand dunes: after a drive of only 40 minutes, you can reach the highest sand dunes in central Iran where you can hike, walk around or watch the sunrise and sunset from the top. We will gladly arrange a ride to the foot of the dunes or a complete journey.

Camel riding: experience a ride on the back of a camel in the beautiful sand dunes. Upon request, we will gladly arrange everything.

Salt Lake: not far from the dunes, there is a beautiful salt lake you can visit and walk along. If you wish to see this fascinating spectacle of nature, we will organize a trip for you with great pleasure.

- Caravanserai
During the Persian Empire, a caravanserai was a guest house where caravaners (travelers) could rest and recover from their journeys along the Silk Road. We will gladly organise a visit to one of the former 999 caravanserais around.

Its profusion of tree-lined boulevards, Persian gardens and important Islamic buildings gives it a visual appeal unmatched by any other Iranian city, and the many artisans working here underpin its reputation as a living museum of traditional culture.
