Overview

Qaleh Rudkhan and Masuleh Tour

our tour starts from Rasht to the magnificent Rudkhan Castle, after a nice hike in the jungle, the walls of castle finally come into view, welcoming you to the castle. This military medieval fortress was first built during the Sasanian Empire (224 – 651 AD) to defend the northern parts of the country from Arab invaders. The castle continued to operate as an unconquerable shelter for hundreds of years.

After a short stop in Fuman, we start our journey to the stunning village of Masuleh. The village can be easily explored by foot, there are many tiny shops selling all sorts of goodies, plus a few cafes to sit down at and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere of the village. We will finish the tour in Rasht.

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.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

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!

Village toiur

This tour is very significant as it revolves around the Masuleh village. the stepped village had tiny stores around the maze which was so intriguing! I bought lots of yummy cookies and olives to pamper my family. our guide new the best restaurant in the area and we had the best "Shomali food" away from the noises and bustle of the city!

Memories of tranquility

Our trip from Tehran continued to the castle and masule village was the most memorable one! we had our guide Ali with us. As we wear driving to the castle, we were able to see the entire countryside from the top. the hike to the top and down was such a delight with Ali's information and jokes. this is truly a time that will be etched in memory forever.
