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).

Excellent service and support Excellent Service ! i am surprised by the reactivity and the will to help and find quickly hotels, flights and solutions for me, even though the holiday season makes things challenging. Chatting through whatsapp made things super smooth and extremely easy. I was interacting with two people from TAP Persia, Rojin and Sohrab. They were just amazing ! They are the ones who reached out to me directly and interacted instantly with me day and night. Great job guys !I used earlier a different company but i was disappointed, i strongly recommend TAP Persia .Keep up the great work !

Fabulous agency - can't recommend more highly for travellers to Iran I decided to go to Iran at short notice and was only able to do so thanks to the exceptional service provided by TAP Persia.What further complicated was my ignorance of being in the middle of Nowruz and the impact that has on flight availabilities etc.In the first instance, that revolved around speedy obtainment of a visa as well as other aspects such as insurance and mah card via their great-value welcome pack.Thereafter, all of my accommodation, tour guides and transport between destinations was arranged by the beyond-wonderful Mahgol with tremendous efficiency, patience and responsiveness - I could not praise nor thank her enough.Communications are as good as can be.With my lack of Farsi and, more specifically, incomprehension of the alphabet, doing things in this manner was the only way to go.All of the guides - Fatemah, Amin, Fardin, Moji, Peyman and Masoud - were fantastic being passionate, knowledgeable, smarter-than-average bears and very nice people.Rasool, Mehrnoush and Sohrab in the office were also very helpful.I would say though that, to help them (especially) to try to draft your itinerary as much as possible before approaching them as this will save time i.e. places, days in each, hotel price-range then trust them to select the latter for you.

Great Service :) TApersia accompanied us well on the way to our Iran visa. My wife's visa took 2 weeks longer than mine (German EU & I'm Swiss). Our questions were always answered quickly by the nice Mahgol via WhatsApp. We think she did her best for our visa processing. After a while, we were also asked how we were doing! Nice, support and promptness are at the highest level.

Solo Saudi female in <3 IRAN <3 10/10. It's hard for me to be succinct, but I will try. I am a Saudi who has been impressed, curious, and infatuated by Iranian culture(s), Iron Age history, Islamic & other religious histories, architecture, and geography for over 15 years. Yum, and food. I wanted initially to continue my Persian language study at Dehkhoda Institute, however student visas take much longer than other visas to process, and I would likely miss my class during the processing time. I was disheartened and scrambled through my Google bookmarks looking for old travel that I had saved over the years in my Iran folder. ;) TAP Persia was bookmarked numerous times and I quickly applied for a tourist visa. Hey, I can still practice some Persian as a tourist, right? THE PROCESS WAS SO EASY. So smooth! Mahgol deserves all the praise and recognition for bringing relief to my anxious-self (because I had already long-ago booked my airline tickets and took time off work!), and she walked me through all the steps in a timely manner and with competence and grace. Even during the first week of Norouz and Ramadan, I got a friendly update and advice -- got my tourist visa within 5 or 6 days (the Ministry was closed for Ramarouz, but WOW that was still quick). I cried from happiness and surprise... Thank you thank you. I will be in Iran April to mid-May. Originally I just registered for TAP Persia welcome package + visa help, but now I'm pretty curious about signing up for one or 2 of their tours now. I am beyond impressed and excited. This travel company, Mahgol, & this team already made me feel safe and like I'm going home, and I imagine with their business practice, will prosper for many years down the road. Thank you so much. Someone please remind me to update this post with photos once I arrive to Iran <3

Iranvisum Ich habe mein Visa für den Iran über TAP Persia beantragt, da der normale Weg zu kompliziert war und sehr viele potentielle Fehler birgt. Ich kann den Service definitiv empfehlen. Alles ist sehr gut und detailliert beschrieben. Der Preis für diesen Service ist es in meinen Augen definitiv Wert. Auch der Kontakt nach der Beantragung über WhatsApp war sehr gut. Sehr freundlich und hilfreich.

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.
