Amazing first hiking experience

One memorable experience! We were lucky from the beginning to find Tappersia and the weather really played in our favor as we had such a lovely day: rainy weather with no wind and rainy clouds upon our heads. It was a completely exhilarating day where I could easily spend hours taking in the breeze, taking photos, and having a nice picnic. One highlight was visiting Isfahan and Shiraz in the rain, which my husband and I loved, and being able to see where the real Gaz is made! The views are simply breathtaking and the walking trails in the streets are great. Also, there were many interesting museums in each city that we loved. We had a wonderful time with incredible and skillful guides: always positive, professional. These guys encourage sustainable travel and promote responsible tourism…how not love them ?!

Incredibly informative- book now!

From my point of view, this trip can be quite a great deal for those traveling to Iran for the first time. It is not technically dangerous as the press says, but it is a great experience to visit this much in a little time. Mojtaba is a very nice guy, a helpful guide who knows his culture and his country. The history was playing in front of my eyes which allowed us to feel the culture and history. He spoke very good English and had a great talent to surprise us with his sweet “Bastani”. I recommend it at 100%!

a great tour in a beautiful country

This is an excellent tour that ties together information gathered in 7 days. Our guide Amin was beyond helpful and a wonderful listener. We got excellent value for money. It was amazing how much we could have done in just a 7 day trip to a foreign country from visiting lovely mansions, historical attractions to listening to the story of people who used to live there.

Fantastic cooking class

A perfect day with our tour guide Samaneh in Esfahan, she has a great smile that brightens the day. I loved her energy in talking about the history of the Sq. Seeing beautiful buildings and learning from her, completed our trips. Mojtaba in Shiraz took us ingredient shopping and gave us great instructions to choose the ripe ones. The food and the cooking class were beyond expectations. It really made the tour a personal experience for us. Many thanks. Should do It! Book with confidence.

3rd time to Iran and this was the BEST tour operatou!

Actually, that tour was the best experience in Iran! we were lucky to have Hamzeh as our tour guide, that man can teach history with jokes. He is such a nice driver and tells amazing stories. Even the sequence of spots was well organized. That's really a must-do!!
