Overview

Isfahan to Shiraz Pick up Tour

This is a road trip that starts from Isfahan and we move toward Shiraz. Shiraz, the capital of Shiraz Province, is one of the most famous and largest cities in Iran. When Iranians hear its name, they absolutely remember the magnificence of archaeology in this area. As there’s a rich history lying in this province, we have the chance to see many time-honored sites on the way.

Let’s start with Pasargadae historical area located in 130 km from north of Shiraz. It’s registered as a world heritage site by UNESCO. This glorious complex was built by the order of Cyrus the Great and became the first capital of the Achaemenid Empire, though Pasargadae Plain dates back to the Paleolithic (old stone age). It includes different palaces, gardens, and fountains.

The palaces lies in gardens and streams goes through divides it into four gardens. It’s considered the layout of a Persian garden. The architecture, art, and technology all shows the development of the civilization.

It’s believed that the mausoleum of Cyrus the Great is located in the south of Pasargadae. The outstanding monument is 3 meters in length, with six steps to a chamber. Takht-e Tall, known as Madar Soleiman Takht (throne) as well, is another monument in the north of Pasargadae. This castle’s area is about 2 hectares. It contains pillared chambers, large platforms, numerous rooms and warehouse. They’re explored by archeologists after excavation. It used to be a ceremonial mansion, turned into a fortified castle after Darious the Great.

After visiting the imposing area of Pasargad, we drive down for about 50 minutes and face remarkable, ancient carvings in the heart of a mount. Naqsh-e Rostam lies in Haji Abad Mount in the north of Shiraz. It consists of relief works of three historical periods of Persia: Elamites, Achaemenid, and Sassanid. There are also the tombs of great Achaemanid kings: Darius, Xerxes, Ardeshir I, and Darius II in Naqshe Rostam. The entrance doors of tombs are in the shape of a square and they used to lock them with large cubic stones behind the doors.

Driving down for about 10 minutes, we reach Persepolis, mostly known as Takht-e Jamshid. This Royal city was built in 520 B.C by the order of Darius the Great to be ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire. It was extended by time and every king constructed his own palace in this area.

Persepolis became a symbol to show the glory of Achaemenids. Unluckily when Alexander the Great invaded Iran, he burned Persepolis. However the remains of constructions, high pillars and statues are still testimony in the magnificence of the empire. Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid) is registered on UNESCO world heritage site and it really deserves it(Isfahan tour).

Knowing the rich history behind this area, we will continue our way to Shiraz and get there after one hour drive. As you already saw these valuable sites on the way of Isfahan to Shiraz, you will have more time to visit other attractions in Shiraz and get familiar with its culture and history.

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.

mojtbaa was the best

We were planning to book a flight to shiraz but rasool suggested a pick up tour ro see the achaemenid heritage on the way. Mojtba was the best of the best tour guides, I would recommend for anyone to ask for him - you will not be disappointed, he goes the extra mile to make your tour very pleasant and enjoyable for a minute. Thank you very much !

Exceeded our expectation !!!

"I was only expecting a simple pick up from our hotel to Shiraz! Mojtaba the guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. So book it! The tour is a must, especially if it's your first time in this amazing city. With only a couple hours he took us to the historic sites and explained all about the culture and history of the site! He asked if there was anything we wanted and he took us to lunch!. He knows all the ins and out, best couple of hours I’ve spent"

very intresting tour

" The pick up was on time even with our delay. He patiently waited in our hotel to pack at 9 am. We definitely recommend the epic , it's much better than public transportation. On the way to the city of love we exit the road to see Persepolis. We had many guides in different countries, but Moji ranks among the best. I highly recommend him as a guide."
