Overview

Shiraz, Shopping and Cooking Experience

The magnificent city of Shiraz is famous worldwide for its wonderful mosques, hammams (bathhouses) and bitter orange gardens. In this entertaining cooking tour, we take you to the lively local bazaar to witness the energetic people of Shiraz moving and shopping in every corner. Next, you will learn how to handpick the freshest ingredients and learn about the differences between the high-quality Persian rice and other types of rice. After a short joyful walk in the colorful city of Shiraz, we get to our cooking class which takes place inside of a warm Persian household.

In cold seasons we will show you how to brew Persian tea and serve it. In Iran serving tea is an art, there are so many subtle details and traditions to notice. Teacups should be on top of tiny dishes called “Nalbaki” then placed on a tray, alongside sugar cubes, dates or rock candies. In hot seasons of the year, you will learn how to make healthy Persian Sharbats by mixing mint, willow or bitter orange extracts with saffron, sugar or rosewater.

We will teach you a three-course meal of your choice, you will participate in cooking and learn how to cook Persian dishes with finesse. First, you can learn to cook Dopiaze Sibzamini, a traditional, simple and healthy appetizer which consists of mashed potatoes and onions. Other candidates for appetizer are Mirza Ghasemi (eggplants, tomatoes and eggs) and Kashke Bademjan (eggplants, Kashk sauce and frie onions). For the entrée, you can learn the most famous Shirazi dish, Kalam Polo. It is cooked with shredded cabbage, lamb meat and rice. You can also choose other main courses like Abgoosht and Khoresht Gheimeh (meat, split peas and dried lime). Finally, a very popular dessert that you can choose is Sholeh Zard, which is a delicious saffron rice pudding, seasoned with cinnamon and rose water. Of course you can choose other desserts like Ranginak (dates and walnuts) or Halava (flour, butter, rose water and sugar) as well.

Enjoy your well-earned meal with us while making interesting conversations about Persian culture, the city of Shiraz and Iranian cuisine.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!
