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.

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.

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!

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."
