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.

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!

Free Itinerary

If you have never visited Iran before, going on a cultural tour around the country is one of your best options to educate yourself about the country’s rich historical and cultural heritage in a short span of time.

Before going on a cultural tour in Iran, it is important to decide which part of the Persian culture you would like to explore first. What was the thing that drew your attention to Iran and Iranian culture in the first place? Was it the food? Was it the rituals and celebrations that the people of Iran have managed to safeguard for thousands of years?

Was it the country’s grasp on the region that expanded for hundreds of years? Or did you fall in love with the souvenirs? Was it the famous Isfahan’s Gaz that got you hooked the first time around? Or was it Yazd’s Pashmak or Kerman’s Baghlava?

Are you a fervent art collector who is a die-hard fan of Persian carpets, and you just can’t stop looking at them? What about the Persian pottery and ceramic dishes? How much you do admire a world-renowned copperware that is made in Kerman? How much do you like to be served in copper bowls? Are you a fan of archeology and can’t wait to step foot in some of Iran’s historical sites that date back thousands of years ago?

Do you wish to learn more about the Jiroft of Kerman where the oldest documents of human civilization have been found? Do you wish to explore the folklore music developed in various regions of Iran?

Depending on which part of Iranian history you would like to align yourself with and want to explore more, your destination in a cultural tour in Iran differs. However, let’s discuss some of the best cultural tours available in Iran that can help you develop a fine grasp of the country’s rich historical and cultural heritage:

Discover Persian Cuisine:

If you are a food enthusiast who just loves to eat and explore the different dishes and spices in every country, then this is your best option.

Depending on which city of Iran you arrive at first and wish to start your food tour, your experience varies but it all eventually comes down to a delicious conclusion.

Food tours provide you with an opportunity to develop an in-depth outlook of each region of Iran. Since the food we eat determines our lifestyle, learning about the culinary nature of each region teaches you a great deal about the people of that region and their temperaments. Food tours usually take place in rural areas as well as urban cities.

But the purpose of a food tour is to introduce you to the tastes that you may not be able to experience at a three-star restaurant. That is why local diners are their first destination. Some food tours provide you with cooking sessions as well to help you learn to make your favorite Persian dish.

A food tour is pretty much like an all-you-can-eat buffet, the only limit might be your allergies to any food item or spices. Therefore, if you have any allergies to any specific food item, make sure to inform the tour manager. And it is always a good idea to take your allergy medications with you while going on a food tour.

Don’t forget to buy some sweets! Iranian sweets and cookies are some of the most popular sugary treats around the world. If you are on a food tour in Iran, or any other type of tour, you must buy some of these delicious treats to take home with you.

If you want to introduce your people in your home country to the taste of Iran and Persian culture, nothing does it better than Isfahan’s Gaz, Kerman’s Baghlava, Yazd’s Pashmak, Gilan’s Koloucheh, Qom’s Sohan, Qazvin’s Korabi, Kermanshah’s Kak, etc.

Discover Persian Music:

Iran has a well-documented past in the music and musical industry that has introduced many genres and musical instruments to the world. One of the best ways to educate yourself about Iranian culture is to hear it, to sense it through your ears. Music is the language of hearts and that is why it is the universal language between all people around the world.

There is a sense of richness and identity in the Persian folklore music that reminds one of the times this great nation ruled one-third of the world. Whether you are a professional music enthusiast or a mere amateur, upon hearing Persian folklore music for the first time, you will sense a feeling of familiarity, as you have heard it before.

And the truth is you have! The Persian folklore music roots in the mystic and mythical tales of ancient civilizations that later on transformed into individual nations in Asia and Europe. You can hear the sound of celebration in the music of the Khorasan region and feel vibrant.

While listening to the Ney brings you a sense of grief and a deep understanding of human misery. Most of the Persian musical instruments date back thousands of years ago, and all of them detail the tales of the forgotten past which is entangled in the space between the present and the unforeseeable future. Do not miss the chance of embarking on a journey of Persian folklore music if you ever took a cultural tour in Iran.

Discover Cultural Sites:

What better way to learn about the history and culture of a nation that to explore the remaining features of its past; its cultural sites.

Whether you travel to Shiraz to see the Persepolis or visit the Iranian capital, Tehran, to visit the grandiose palaces, or merely wish to take a walk in Jahan Nama Square in Isfahan, you can witness the place’s art, culture, architecture, and design has had in the history of Iran.

Upon visiting these cultural sites, one cannot help but wonder about the great minds that were behind the construction of these sites.

The rulers of ancient Persia created the mark of their genius in stone to make sure no one is going to ever forget their names.

Travel to these cultural sites, immerse yourself in the experience of witnessing greatness and see your entire level of understanding of the cultural heritage of the East be shifted in one instance.
