Overview

Evening Astronomy Tour

Join us in an awe-inspiring astronomy lesson on an evening tour. You will have the chance to stay in a traditional guesthouse in Yaghud village, with a cup of tea, while listening to a short introduction about the basics of astronomy. You will learn about the splendid sky and what you get to see in the tour. You will learn to observe the sky with your naked eyes and understand what you see. You will see planets and constellations with a laser pointer.

Furthermore, you will be given a brief insight into mythology, horoscope, and how to use a professional telescope. With professional astronomy equipment, you get to see shining stars, nebula, and galaxies. You will also learn to read the sky map and then find stars yourselves. With such interactional approach, you will learn the “alphabet” of astronomy and become an amateur astronomer who will not want the lesson to finish. After eating dinner in the guesthouse this amazing trip ends and you will be taken back to Isfahan. You will find such experience nowhere else(Isfahan tour).

In the time of booking the tour consider the following notes:

  1. Because of the strong moonlight astronomy tour can’t take place in the period between 5 days before and 5 days after the full moon.
  2. 2. At 10:00 AM one day of the planned trip you will be contacted with a weather update. In the case of the bad weather forecast, the trip will be rescheduled or refunded. If the weather turns bad during the tour refund will be partial.

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.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

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!

a knowledgabele tour

What a brilliant way to spend an evening! Farba and Ivan are great and down to earth that made me feel so welcome. Once there, our guide was so friendly and took us on an awesome evening astronomy tour. I will know what I’m staring at each night. I can identify Mercury, and the northern star. Pick a clean sky and enjoy!

astronomy tour 101

Our guides are amateur enthusiasts. A great combination of great knowledge, science and stars. We saw plants close-up with the telescope and had some snacks in the dark. One of the best things we did in Isfahan. Fabulous.

A spring Must do!

I went as a school teacher and asked for an afternoon tour. It was just the best tour I had. The positive attitude of every member of tappersia is an inspiration for travelers. The guide was an absolute delight too. Our guide gave wonderful instructions to star gazing and explained each star and when it appeared. I'll recommend taking the tour with tappersia and enjoy the evening show up in the sky.

Great Experience

So fun! We had a great time watching the night sky to see the planets and look at the mass amounts of stars in our galaxy. The telescope was fun seeing through it. Farib was very welcoming, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. The night vision of the sky was top-notch! One recommendation would be to do it again and again!
