Working With TAP Persia
A fantastic workaway opportunity to explore Iran with one of the country’s foremost and innovative travelling startups. We are looking for energetic, social and active Iran lovers to help us with many different aspects of our site. Passionate individuals with experience in digital marketing, tourism, journalism, blogging or web development are preferred. Applicants will be provided with appropriate room & board throughout their stay with us. We care very much about selecting applicants that are a good match with our team, so in order to assess your personality and overall character, we do request that all applicants go through at least one Skype video interview.
How TAP Persia Started
We are a group of young travellers, explorers, tour guides and overall Iran enthusiasts with diverse backgrounds who came together to expand and popularize Iran’s culture, society and history. Starting about one year ago, many of us realized that web services offered to travellers who wish to visit Iran are extremely limited and oftentimes not up-to-date. Thus, TAP Persia was born to address this vastly important issue. Since then, our team has continued to grow each month, with a passionate global network of team members and correspondents (check out our team) who contribute daily.
What We Do
We are a full-service tourism service startup in Iran catering to visitors of all backgrounds and budgets, from hitchhikers all the way to luxury 5-star travellers. We offer unique and custom eco, cultural and historical tours; cultural workshops; currency exchanges and tourist cards (temporary debit cards); visa processing and extensions; any form of transportation booking; car rentals; any form of accommodation booking; and travel & health insurance. TAP Persia is designed to be entirely customer-centric, making it easy to navigate our site to find the right match for solo or group trips.
Where You Will Stay
TAP Persia is headquartered in the historic and spirited city of Isfahan. As the capital of the last influential Iranian royal dynasty (Safavid Dynasty, 1501–1736), Isfahan is a marvel of architectural and cultural wonder. As the second largest city in the country, Isfahan is the industrial, political, cultural, and most importantly, artistic capital of Iran. Being one of the main hubs in the ancient and famous silk road has put Isfahan on the map as a trade and travel capital throughout time. Today, thanks to its central geographical location within Iran, it has recaptured its regional dominance as a main hub for all travellers who wish to explore Iran’s diverse landscapes. No matter what activity you have in mind, you are never more than a click away from timeless entertainment.
