Overview

Isfahan Free Walking Tour

In Isfahan Free Walking Tour, you will walk through the time tunnel and catch a glimpse of a 17th-century masterpiece (Naghshe Jahan square) then go toward the Seljuk part.

We will start from the splendorous mosaic work depicted on the towering facade of Qeysarie Bazaar which represents two hunters with human heads, tiger bodies which each aiming an arrow to their dragon tail as a Sagittarius zodiac sign of Isfahan. This glorious place was of utmost importance for the dealers and the merchants.

The next destination would be the reputed tomb of Mir Emad, the most celebrated Persian calligrapher. It is believed that the Nasta’liq style, one of the main calligraphic hands used in writing the Persian alphabet, reached its highest elegance in Mir Emad’s works.

During a very Impressed walking through the long bazaar among the heavenly scents, we will visit a small mosque located in the bazaar as a chapel for locals to meet their needs.

Our next stop would be in Seljuk square referred to the Turko-Persian Sunni Muslim empire, the focal point of that era. It was the chief center of the business and social life of Isfahan in the 11 & 12th  century and served as a prototype for majestic Naqsh-e Jahan Square that Shah Abbas I created in its vicinity(Isfahan tour).

Jame Mosque on the corner of this square is the highlight of our day before we finish the tour by visiting Jobare neighborhood. An old but tranquil area that used to have 17 Synagogues where Muslims and Jews used to live together peacefully.

Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone and walk into this exotic history tunnel? Book now and join us on the next tour.

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!

The guide showed us around on a nice rainy afternoon and shared a great amount of knowledge with us. We even got to taste some delicious coconuts on the way. We had a very funny and interesting tour with Samaneh, she is the funniest indeed. I can recommend this tour to everyone.

Great and funny tour

Thanks Samaneh for your time! The tour was amazing. We walked around the historic bazaar to get to the Jame mosque and we learned a lot about the city of Eshana and its history. You will not only enjoy a standard tour but meet great people and the best souvenirs on the way. Super recommended!

Maryam is the best

It was fantastic to step into the mosques around the hotel. Our tour guide chose these incredible designs created by Persian masters that delight our time. She is a history buff and always happy to share super interesting facts and relevant stories and events about the buildings. She also has a funny and twisted sense of humor! Really just sign up for this free walking tour. It’s so worth it!

Must join if you like history

Special Thanks to Samaneh , our free walking guide on Isfahan! We had a great time during this tour, Personally, I enjoyed learning about Isfahan’s history through her interesting stories and facts and discovering the places not every tourists visit and knows about it “the Atigh mosque”. Her knowledge and her enthusiasm about the city were the highlight of our trip. This tour is a must to join.
