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!

Tehran
Tehran

With over 15 million residents, Tehran is Iran’s melting pot, the center of its national identity. Check out local shopping experiences in the maze-like Grand Bazaar of Tehran, before heading off to the World Heritage-listed Golestan Palace, in Central Tehran. The 18th c. Qajar-era complex is a masterpiece of hand-painted tiles, set within a lush garden. After a quick stroll through Shahr Park, arrive at the National Museum of Iran, which holds artifacts from ancient and medieval Iranian antiquities.

Hamedan
Hamedan

In the morning, head for the green foothills of the 3,500 m Mt. Alvand, in the midwestern Iran, towards Hamedan. Explore the city that once served as the 8th c. BC capital of the Medes. Visit the Tomb of Esther and Mordechai, the biblical Jewish queen, and the Tomb of Baba Taher, the 11th c dervish poet. Make your way back into the city and visit the Mausoleum of Avicenna, known as the “Father of Modern Medicine” and one of the most significant thinkers of the Islamic Golden Age. Rest in Hamedan.

Hamedan
Hamedan

Start the morning off with a trip outside the city towards Ganjnameh, two trilingual Achaemenid-era, mountainside inscriptions written in three languages: Old Persian, Neo-Babylonian and Neo-Elamite. Time permitting, take an excursion to Ali-Sadr Cave, the world's largest water cave. Enjoy the serene boat ride down the cave’s many wonders. You could also take a day trip to Lalejin, Iran’s pottery and ceramic capital. Rest in Hamedan.

Mariwan
Mariwan

Drive to Mariwan in Western Iran, close to the Iraqi border, the first of many stops in Iranian Kurdistan. One of Iran’s most influential ethnic groups, Kurds are native to the mountainous region of Western Asia, in present day Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Then it’s off to a quick hike, lakeside picnic or paddleboat ride in Zarivar or Zrebar lake. Rather than being fed by rivers and streams, the freshwater lake is fed year-round by rains and snow. Watch sunset on lake zrebar and spend the night in a Mariwan Guesthouse.

Uraman Takht
Uraman Takht

In the morning, head for Uraman Takht Village. Known as the “Huraman” throne, the stepped-village of Uraman Takht dates back to Pre-Islamic times. Built into the steep slopes of the Uraman mountains facing the Sirvan river in the valley below, the villagers have unique customs, cultures and languages that have stayed intact over thousands of years. Explore the nearby Darband-e Dezli region for its gorgeous green slopes and Abshar Maloor Waterfall. Spend the night in an Uraman Takht Homestay.

Palangan
Palangan

In the morning, drive through steep, winding paths towards Palangan Village. Hidden away within folds of the Zagros mountains, Palangan features a stepped design, much like Uraman Takht. Due to centuries of isolation, villagers here have maintained their unique local lifestyle. Explore the nearby mountains and natural attractions. Enjoy a local delicacy of barbecued fish along riverside restaurants. Help out with some daily chores and enjoy conversations with friendly locals. Spend the night in a Palangan Homestay.

Kermanshah
Kermanshah

Drive towards Kermanshah, the largest Kurdish-speaking city in Iran. Explore Taq-e Bostan, an incredibly detailed rock relief from 4th century Sassanid Iran. Carved along a historic Silk Road waypoint, the relief highlights Iranian themes of glory, the fighting spirit & festivities. If possible, visit the uniquely Kurdish themed Jameh Mosque of Shafei. Time-permitting, end the day with the Tekyeh Moaven Al-Molk’s incredibly rich and storyful tileworks. Stop by the Tekyeh’s Anthropology & Jewelry Museums. Rest in Kermanshah.

Zagros Mountains
Zagros Mountains

Start with the Bisotun Caravansary. Visit the famed Behistun Inscription, an Achaemenid era stone relief. The inscription is to cuneiform as the Rosetta Stone is to Egyptian hieroglyphics. Bisotun mountain is also the setting for the ancient romantic story Shirin & Farhad. Drive through the massive Zagros mountain range and make your way to Kashan, one of the handicraft capitals of Iran. Time-permitting, you can stop for a quick visit in the historic cities of Arak or Qom on your way. Rest in Kashan for the night.

Kashan
Kashan

Drive to nearby Kashan, the birthplace of “kashi” or modern tiles. Visit the Sultan Amir Ahmad Bathhouse for a lesson in classic bathing. You also get to see the fascinating Abbasian House & Tabatabaei House, two examples of opulent homes with exceptional attention paid to every architectural detail, designed specifically for the desert. Finish the day with a quick stop in Fin Garden.

Maybod
Maybod

In the morning, head towards the pre-Islamic city of Maybod and visit the Sassanid-era Narin Castle. Then it’s off to the Maybod Pigeon Tower, an important invention in message sending and fertilization. Visit the Maybod Yakhchal, a millennia-old icehouse within the desert, and the Abbasi Caravansary. Stop by the abandoned mud-brick village of Kharanaq, a well-preserved example of how Persian cities looked thousands of years ago, then hike up the mountaintop Chak Chak Fire Temple. Spend the night in Yazd.

Yazd
Yazd

Start off with the Yazd Jameh Mosque, built in the 13th c. over a Sassanid fire temple. Walk the narrow, mud-brick streets to visit the Amir Chakhmagh Complex, which contains a caravanserai and a historic bathhouse. Learn how underground water channels kept the city hydrated with a visit to the Yazd Water Museum. Stop in at the Zoroastrian Fire Temple and see the holy fire that has burned since 470 AD. Finish by seeing Tower of Silence to witness the mysteries of sky burials. Stay in Yazd overnight.

Isfahan
Isfahan

Time permitting, drop by for a quick visit in Dolat-Abad Garden. Once a residence of Persian regent Karim Khan Zand, this small pavilion set amid UNESCO-listed gardens was built around 1750. Afterwards, drive within Iran’s central desert towards the former Safavid capital of Isfahan. At night, visit the Khaju Bridge & Si-o-Se Pol Bridge, local hangouts along the Zayandeh Rud river. Finish the night with local dinner made by your host family in Isfahan. Spend the night in a homestay.

Isfahan
Isfahan

After a night’s sleep, visit the 16th c. Naqsh-e Jahan Square, the seat of Iran’s Safavid dynasty. Explore Qeysariye Bazaar, a local hub filled with handicrafts, spices & carpets. Marvel at Sheykh Lotfollah Mosque’s mesmerizing dome, Shah Mosque’s enchanting courtyard, & Ali Qapu Palace’s view. You can also visit Chehel-sotun Palace, the royal Safavid reception for foreign dignitaries and ambassadors. At night, go for a night hike in Sofeh Mountain Park and enjoy the panoramic views.

Isfahan
Isfahan

Depending on your flight, visit some last minute attractions. Pack your bags and head towards the intricate and elaborate 8th c. Jameh Mosque of Isfahan, a former Zoroastrian fire temple that was continually built upon over the centuries. Then it’s off to bright frescos of Vank Cathedral and the historic, delicate handicrafts of the Vank Museum, in the Armenian quarter of New Jolfa. In the evening, head towards IKIA.

stress free tour

"We did the 14 days tour with tappersia." The sightseeing on the trip was amazing. Everything for our entire trip was perfect. Two days in the capital and I learned there is almost an old building at the center of the city. Beautiful structure, detailed architecture, and design. The city center is a mix of busy streets and heavy traffic. It has been the home of great plays for decades, hosting theatre festivals and the greatest artists. The guide took us to the Shakespear performance and it was the highlight of our trip.Traveling to the central part of Iran and driving all the way to the western no photographs or films can match the reality and the beauty of the scenery I witnessed. There was magnificent scenery and wonderful photo opportunities. The weather was, well, changeable. On a few days, there was a lot of dry heat and sunshine that spoils photo ops, to the cool, moisty, and light rain. We loved the stepped villages of Uraman and Palangan. Thank you for all the pre-planning that you did for us. It made our vacation very easy and stress-free. "

INTERESTED!

"Hello Tappersia Team, I’m from Australia/NZ and want to say Thanks for the itineraries! I was a bit lost. My hubby and I and our daughters (5&7) are trying to plan a late January trip but the girls want to have more fun time during the snow holiday which I am happy to do, as long as we can have the 14 days itinerary that would make them happy to try skiing. Is that possible? "

Amazing Zagroos trip!

"My trip to Zagros and Kurdistan was AMAZING! The information provided by the company covered a lot of details about the trip and the equipment we have to carry to the country. I reviewed the itinerary and applied for a visa for the family. At the hotels, the food was exceptional and better than expected. Although I did enjoy our homestay in Uraman. Passing the spiral roads getting to the historical village with an amazing view of the valley. Every day at some point except my last day of the tour on the way to Tehran. The days in Esfahan were torrential downpour and the highlight of our trip as I was told it was ‘Half of the world”. The central part of the city and another gorgeous and amazing landscape. Even with all the rain which created some mysterious scenes and some great photos. Overall the information provided by Guide to Iran was very helpful and I hope to return to Iran one day to explore more of this amazing country!"

Interesting for a two-week tour but we want to have a unique expedition through Iran. Is there a spa to relax on the way? We want to go in February. And we are aware that might be restricted in the country. Two couples with kids
