Overview

Isfahan Daily Tour, Naqshe Jahan Square

The powerful king built here for his leisure time, important rituals and trades. The king loved to make this square full of candles and fireworks at nights, so it seemed like a sky with lots of sparkling stars. A wonderful scene when they made wooden bodies of animals and fired them just to watch. Shah Abbas I of the Safavid dynasty rode his horse right here and shot his arrows at the bags full of gold coins. These bags were hanging on top of a long standing stick, so he could watch the dance of gold coins in the air. This was a game called Qupoq. He also played Polo, a sport which originates from ancient Persia.

We start our journey from the bazaars. As you go inside, you face a very vibrant, electric atmosphere. The beautiful handicrafts are set in front of every shop and you can see energetic people who just can’t get enough of all these beauties. The enchanting sun rays come in gently through the round holes of the roof, they’re very straight like someone has pulled them inside. The bazaar roofs are vaulted which indicate how ancient and ingenious they are. They have witnessed so many shopkeepers and people from all over the world since the Safavid time till now. If they could speak, they would have told you astonishing stories.

We go further and get the magnificent Ali-Qapu which is one of the wonders of the Safavid dynasty. Going further ahead in the exquisite handicrafts bazaars, leads us to the beautiful turquoise Jame Abbasi Mosque. It’s a lot more splendid than what you hear or see in a picture, as you only want to sit on its white marble stones and gaze at the marvelous painted tiles.

We can pass the mosque and walk through the Minakari bazaar. As you watch different Mina vases. You may realize how similar designs are to the mosque paintings. The turquoise theme just caresses your eyes and calms you down.
We walk even further and again we can see the light at the end of the bazaar route. The reason is we are getting close to the extraordinary Mosque which is called Sheikh Lotfollah.

While passing through the bazaar, you may hear the sound of hammering. In fact, some are doing metal work (Ghalamzani). They carve on metal plates to make elegant designs. After passing here, you may smell some aroma, you’re actually in the spices bazaar. Lots of amazing Asian spices are waiting to be tasted by you(Isfahan tour). Just ask shopkeepers first and enjoy the unique experience.

Next, you get to the Gheysarieh gate with a wonderful view and lots of fantastic paintings. In Gheysarieh there are clothes and carpet bazaars. If you go on your right, you can also find the gold and silver bazaars. Finally, after this superb discovery, you can sit near the pool in the middle of the square, in the fresh air enjoy yourself with a traditional ice cream and Faloodeh (iced noodles).

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!

highlight of the trips!

The vast amount of knowledge the guide had was amazing, we just got to Tehran and Abbas greeted us with the greatest tour ever! He gave us a pretty much full picture of the history of Tehran. We were able to see and learn so many interesting things. Highly recommend this amazing tour!

Authentic city tour

Done, done, done! We visited the Ali Ghapu building. The big square in the city of Isfahan and the bazaar around it. We made a stop at the Sheikh Mosque. We spent 50 minutes taking pictures of the entrance. The mosque was a peaceful site, we sat there for another hour and it was so peaceful. Would like to recommend it!

Do it as soon as you arrive!!

Great tour, do it when you get to Esfahan, that way you get an idea of the country, their religion and also the architecture. The stops are quick, guide samaneh was nice, friendly, and informative.

The blue mosque is still beautiful

We spent the day in Isfahan with our guide. It gets busy and a bit warm in daylight. The tour involved a couple of visits to the historic sites of Isphahan, the turquoise blue city. It was a really amazing place to discover along the way to Yazd. Highly recommended.
