Overview

Full Day Astronomy Tour

We start this astronomy tour from Isfahan and it takes 30 minutes to reach the traditional guest house near a small village called Foudaz. The village’s sky has no light pollution and provides you a unique astronomy lesson. Here, let’s enjoy the sunset with a cup of tea and we present you a short introduction about basics of astronomy. This will help to understand the sky and what we will later be able to see.

When it gets dark we will also explain how astronomy can be interesting while observing the sky only with naked eyes. We will show planets and constellations with a laser pointer. Then you’ll have a brief insight into mythology, horoscope and tradition. Finally using a professional telescope to see and learn more about stars, nebula and galaxies(isfahan tour). We will teach you how to read the sky map and then find stars yourselves because we believe that is the best way to make astronomy interesting.

With such interactional approach, you will learn the “alphabet” of astronomy and already become an amateur astronomer. After dinner, we sleep, but it’s better to wake up before sunrise. Let’s not miss observing the clear sky with telescope again. There are a lot more visible and interesting objects in the sky at this time of the night. After breakfast we would greet the morning sun. watch sunspots with solar filters. Experience how astronomy can be interesting while observing the sky during the day.

The tour is performing by Ivan and Fariba, married Croatian – Iranian couple working in consulting and development projects in tourism. Ivan moved to Iran to work on new ideas for the growing Iranian tourism market while Fariba is a professional astronomer with experience of teaching in schools and organizing public sky observations.

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!

best time ever

Ivan and Fariba are great! Fariba is extremely knowledgeable and is happy to share her passion. We also appreciated the efforts she took to maintain compliance for COVID-19 safety. If you go, be sure to ask about leaving our galaxy! Highly recommended.

Awesome Evening adventure

We sure enjoyed our evening under the beautiful sky of Isfahan with the lovely couple! We were able to see the Milky Way,Jupiter, Mars and Venus, along with the moon. Our guides know a lot and taught us a lot! Very kind people! I would do this again!

Night sky

We had a great time on our night sky tour with Fariba. She was a great storyteller and kind to stop the story and tell us about the stars. A great time and learned a lot!

stas, galaxies, and ..Oh my!

What a fantastic experience! I am a big space buff. I wanted to do something that involved the night sky while in Iran. After getting my visa from Tappersia I asked rasol to arrange a tour for me and It was incredible. I would definitely recommend the experience to anyone that is interested in the night sky.

You will learn alot and be amazed

Farib is just gorgeous and just the right gal in a perfect combo with Ivan, the couple took us out of the lights and we spent a lovely afternoon. She assisted us to find stars and comforted us with snacks and water. We made tea and came back to Isfahan. We learned a lot and were intrigued by the information we got. I highly recommend you do this..gaze at stars… have delicious snacks. And even have some deep space views that blow your mind.
