Overview

Harvesting Experience with Locals in Babolsar

Babolsar is a coastal flat land located between the Alborz Mountains and the Caspian Sea. It has intrigued many tourists and travelers all around the world. There is a famous river called Babol Rud that begins from Alborz, flows through neighboring cities of Babol and Babolsar and ends in the Caspian Sea. Its wonderfully green riverside has created many leisure opportunities like boat riding, beach park and soccer field.

Accompany us boating over this graceful river to the pleasing wharf next to the Caspian Sea. On this short boat ride, you can see the city’s symbol which is a magnificent metal bridge with admirable architecture. It’s built by German and Swedish engineers before the Second World War. If you like to feel nature a bit more stimulating, let’s mount and try the zip line to experience flying over the fresh Babol Rud River.

We can even make it a bit more educational; Being in Babol, you will be exposed to the soothing rice farms. The charming scenery around might amaze you and in the right season (August to November) you can learn how they reap rice with hooks and experience it yourself like a true local. Babolsar is one of the most significant centers of seafood in Iran. Various fishes and caviar are produced here to be exported in large amounts to all around the world. The north of Iran is famous for its mouthwatering dishes and nothing could be better than having colorful traditional foods made with organic northern products.

Finally, the pacifying orchards await you to pick fruits right off the trees and roam around the gardens. Another great activity for you would be a visit to the Eucalyptus, Alder and Spine forests. You will enjoy walking in the sabulous canebrakes near the sea, swimming in segregated beaches with lifeguards and step on the same old wooden bridge that Nasir din Shah (1831) once passed. Don’t miss this exceptional journey.

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!

something we take for granted

Great guides. Great plantation. price very reasonable. We had a great time and learned more about Iran. The private tour consisted of a history lesson on the Iran cultivation industry. There were multiple tasting rice and kebabs with fish that tasted like heaven. The guide was very polite but a fast talker. Would recommend to anyone even a slight interest in moist and humid weather.

very informative and tasty tour!

Have you ever tried cooking rice with milk? It tasted wonderful. We asked for a real adventure and our guide took it really seriously. It was the best meal I have had for many years. The experience with reap rice in the village was glorious. The plant's maturation, different types of plants, harvest, distribution in quality, and how they pack them was nice to know. It was a super fun day with an even better company. I highly recommend doing this.

if you want to learn about rice, this is your tour!

Lifetime experience! We learned so much about the northern life of Iranians and our guide was simply fantastic! They get you to the Caspian Sea for a picnic if you are down with it and try the zip-line. Get ready to fall in love with this culture.

unforgettable experience

Fully recommend this trip to everyone who is interested in some adventure. A passionate and well-informed tour guide was with us all the time just to give us English translations and let us communicate with the locals. Do It ;)))

A superb experience

Our two days harvesting experience was fantastic! The tour guide is knowledgeable, patient, and has a passion for Iran. The translator was clear, concise, and very polite. We were 3 girls in the group as we were spending time in the fields. The trip was a cultural experience to the middle eastern area. The drive to the rice paddy and of it was scenic and quite memorable. Thank you tappersia.
