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

Do you just love to travel on a low budget and simply do not mind the extra pressure on your feet? Or do you just have an absolute physique that makes it entirely easy for you to walk for a considerable length of time?

Then you must love Iran Free Walking Tours. As previously stated, these tours are perfectly free and all you need to do is to gather at a certain place and at a certain time and join the group in walking and exploring the wonders of the cities, towns, and villages you have visited.

Travelers, who travel on foot, enjoy a different level of human experience with nature and the world. Especially, if you are being introduced to a new nation with the different natural, historical, cultural, and social landscape, what better way than immersing yourself in the experience?

Walk through different places and discover the environment. Walk through the cities, streets, and alleys, and discover the lifestyle of the people. There is no better way of understanding people who come from different cultural and geographical landscapes than to walk a mile in their shoes. After all, you know what they say “Don’t judge me, until you have walked a mile in my shoes”.

Free Walking Tours in Iran usually do not last more than a couple of days and usually initiate and end on the very same day. Since these tours are mostly charge-free tours, they are coordinated by volunteer tour guides or normal citizens who wish to showcase their city to new visitors.

To embark on a free walking tour in Iran, you need not have any previous experiences with the place and the local environment; after all, this is what you have come to discover.

But you need to take extra caution about the groups you decide to join since some of them may not be organized by responsible tour guides and you may face some challenges along the way. Furthermore, you might even get lost in a city where you have just arrived.

Therefore, if it is your first time going on a free walking tour in any city of Iran, it is best to take your tour guide or your Iranian friend with you to guide you along the way and to help you take in and enjoy the very best of this experience.

Iran Top Tourism Places to Visit in 2022 - Tehran
The Gate of National Garden - Tehran - Iran

Explore Tehran:

No matter how old you are, how much money you have, or which time of the year you have decided to travel to Iran, you can always embark on Iranian city free walking tours.

These tours usually do not last more than a few hours and are mainly one-day trips. No matter which city of Iran you arrive in first, you are in for an experience of a lifetime if you are willing to explore the city on foot. Tehran, the capital of Iran, is one of the most popular cities in the country for walking tours. Take one day out of your calendar and explore Tehran’s old neighborhoods, churches, palaces, and not to mention its magnificent bazaars and shopping malls. Do not rush your walking trip across the city.

Take your time, and explore the different aspects of the city one by one. If the old neighborhoods did not bring you much delight, you can always elevate your view through the Milad Hightower.

Having an architectural design that is one of a kind and far ahead of its times, the Milad Hightower provides one of the best views of the city of Tehran. Do not miss the experience of the entire city through the lens of the Milad Hightower if you were able to experience parts of it. It helps you create a better picture of the city inside your head.

Explore Isfahan:

If you have ever traveled to Isfahan know that it is just one of the very best places to embark on a free walking tour. You cannot explore a city like Isfahan by any means better than by your feet. For you need to take a walk in Naghshe Jahan Square which might even take more than an hour to make a full turn to understand the magnificence of this structure; to understand why exactly it was appointed as the capital of Iran at one point throughout the history.

You cannot experience the enlivened nature of Zayanderood River by just driving through the streets leading to it; you need to take a walk next to it.

You need to walk through Si’o Se Pol (Thirty-Three Bridges) to understand the grandiosity of this structure. Free walking tours in Isfahan are organized daily and their starting point is usually the Naghshes Jahan Square.

If you see a group of people gathering around and exploring the square you may as well just join them since they might have coordinated a free walking tour around the city. Of course, this is not to suggest that you can join strangers in Iran freely facing no repercussion, it was merely an indication that free walking tours can be spotted everywhere.

Iran walking tour

Explore Shiraz:

Shiraz is one of the best cities in Iran to join a free walking tour. Between the Eram Gardens, Hafizieh, The Haft Tanan Garden, Sa’adi’s Shrine, Khajou Kermani’s Shrine, and multiple other cultural sites, you might even find that just joining one free walking tour in Shiraz is not enough and you may want to join a few more to cover all these magnificent cites.

Shiraz has multiple famous gardens, including Eram Garden, Jahan Nama Garden, Delgosha Garden, Golshan Garden, Narenjestan Garden, Haft Tanan Garden, Pars Garden, and the National Garden to explore each of which there is no better way of embarking on a walking tour. While there is an entry fee that is charged at the entrance of these gardens, comparing the priceless journey that you are about to embark on, it is a small price to pay.

However, if you wish to embark on an entirely free walking tour around the city, there are multiple other places that you can visit without having to pay an entrance fee, including Hafizieh (the shrine of Hafiz, the great Persian poet) and the shrine of Sa’adi, the Shah-Cherakh holy shrine, and the world-renowned Vakil Bazaar to name a few. As a matter of the fact, there is no better way of exploring Vakil Bazaar in Shiraz than to join on a free walking tour of it.

You may already be familiar with some of the suveniers of Kerman, including its carpets, copperware, and a variety of spices like Zireh. If you want to buy some of these delicious spices, then you have no other choice than to walk around the Kerman’s Bazaar and to look for the highest quality of these items.

Fath Abad Garden - Kerman - Iran

Upon walking into the various chambers of the bazaar, you can hear the sound of the masters working on their copperware dishes; it almost feels like a melody that brings forward a sense of belonging to the earth and appreciation for the mother earth to introducing these valuable metals to humanbeings. A free walking tour around the Bazaar-e Kerman is an experience that would last you a life time.

No matter where you are in Iran, you can enjoy a free walking tour across the city and explore the social and cultural landscape for yourself.
