Overview

Kaluts and Shahzadeh Garden Tour

Our journey starts in the morning in Kerman City and we move to a town in the southeast of Kerman Province. Not many people are aware of the beauty of Mahan Town and its wonderful nature and pleasant climate. Shahzadeh Garden or Shazdeh Garden, one of the greatest and most elegant Persian gardens, is located 2 km from this town.

Shahzadeh Garden(Kerman tours) was built by the order of a commander, Mohammad Hasan Khan in the Qajar era. As the garden is placed on the silk road, it has been outstanding for a long time.

Shahzadeh Garden is nowadays registered on UNESCO Heritage Sites. It’s like a paradise in a desert. Towering trees and flowing streams in the heart of this desert area are like miracles. The reason is snow melting of nearby mounts and qanats (traditional Persian way to extract water from the ground).

Afterward, we move to Sirch Village. Visit one of the oldest trees (cypress) in the world. Leaving this place, let’s visit qanats on the way and know how they work since old times.

Let’s head to the largest arid area and desert of Iran, Lut Desert. After some time drive, the flora is less seen and you face a pure area full of sand dunes. The scenery is jaw-dropping as you may assume its a fantasy. Relax in this peaceful land and enjoy the art of nature. You can take awesome snapshots and fulfill your travel dreams.

For some years, this region has got the hottest temperature of the earth and this makes Kaluts in Shahdad noticeable. Kaluts are the sandy mounts formed by the act of wind, soil and rain and erosion for many years. You may think someone took time and shaped them but they are all naturally made. Another charm in this desert is Nebkas. Nebka is a phenomenon similar to kaluts, but the plant is involved too. The wind moves sand in the air, as the plant is wet, especially after rain, it absorbs sand around. After year of erosions, a vase-shaped is formed and on top, the plant appears. Due to different allures, part of Lut Desert is registered on UNESCO Sites.

Also watch the egg-shaped hills and the salty river which flows to Shahdad Town. This river is so salty as it has gone a long distance to reach kaluts.

Let’s visit the ancient caravansaries in the desert which get you familiar with the culture and history of the area. We move back to Kerman afterward and reach there before noon.

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!

A wonderful oasis in the middle of a desert

A garden in the desert surprised us the most. Ali took us early in the morning and drove all the way to the desert, stopping at a big building and it was heaven to our eyes. The garden has a water system that uses no pump to channel the water from the top to down. A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE!

Wonderful hassle free dessert experience

We spent a fabulous half day with Ali and his team. He was friendly, knowledgeable, obliging ( changes times to suit us) . We had a little girl with us and Ali, the guide, built a great relationship with her. She was smiling all the way in the car. Ali gave us thrills in the dunes as well as great photo opportunities at pretty spots. Arranging the tour was easy, the agency was reachable and tailor the tour to our own desires. What a great experience, Thank you!

one of a kind experience!

Wow, it was an amazing experience and you must try it. Ali was really nice and chatty, we had a great day with him. We were delighted to be guided. Starting in the morning by the garden visit in the desert followed with a stop in the city of mud brick houses. Even though it was scary at first, we ended up having fun and taking cool photos on top of the castle. I would like to recommend everybody to try the best experience.

Best tour guide ever

We didn't know what to expect. just knew that we wanted a tour guide to explore the desert area of lut desert and Kerman. We had 2 tour guides and they were fantastic. They took care of everything that we needed. They were not only professional tour guides who knew all the information about the Kaluts that we went to see and great cooks. We all had a great time and we would highly recommend this tour.

Spiritual place!

A very nice and stylish place you probably could visit in each season, the palace in the desert was surprisingly beautiful and the drive to the desert was a delight. Ali, the guide, drove carefully and was able to speak perfect English. Do not miss it when you get a chance to visit Kerman province.
