Overview

Bishapur and Tang-e Chogan

Sassanian were the last Persian empire before the adoption of Islam. They ruled a huge area consisting all of today’s Iran, Iraq, parts of Eastern Arabia, the Levant, the Caucasus, Egypt, Turkey, Central Asia, Yemen and Pakistan for more than 400 years. Among the numerous cities and landmarks the Sassanian kings built, Bishapur and its surrounding region can be considered one of their most important bases and among the best examples of their successful years of rule in Iran.

On this tour, we will visit some of the well-preserved sights of Bishapur, including Anahita Temple, Valerian Palace and the Bishapur Old City(Shiraz tour). Many parts of the region are yet to be fully discovered, but even with the limited excavations, there is still a lot to visit in the region.

The Chogan Gorge is where all the mystery of the ancient city lies in. Thanks to the fertile lands and the Chogan river, the region has always been among the most suitable places for farming. Beautiful landscapes and eye-catching rock formations add a nice flavor to your visit to the Bishapur region. There is also the option of visiting the Shapur Cave, where an almost 2-hour hike in the mountain will lead you to the mysterious cave where the colossal statue of Shapur the Great (AD 240—272), the second king of the Sasanian Empire is located.

This tour is packed with glorious historic sights and will give you an incredible insight into the very last Persian empire before the hundreds of years which marked the country’s transition to Islam.

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!

Everything was perfect. From the epic up to walking on the river barefoot, it was all delight! Our guide was very nice and entertaining. He didn’t miss any chance to let us have fun in nature. I recommend adding this to your bucket list.
