Overview

North of Tehran Daily Tour

Shemiranat neighborhood in North of Tehran is famous for its suitable weather, green spaces and luxurious buildings. We’ll meet up in Tajrish square and start moving towards a famous spot among locals, Darband. Due to its life-giving river, Darband has become one of the best leisure centers of Iran. With pleasing cold weather throughout the year, a mountainous hiking trail and hundreds of cafes and restaurants, Darband satisfy every taste and expectation. We will pass many shops selling street foods like Laboo (boiled beetroots), Baghali (cooked fava beans) and mouth-watering Lavashak (fruit leather).

After spending some wonderful time and hiking in nature, we will take a more historical turn. Qajar Dynasty (1789 to 1925) and its kings were in love with North of Tehran and they built several buildings and palaces in this part of the city. Our next destination, Sa’dabad Complex contains 9 palaces, 16 museums, hundreds of artworks and countless gardens. It was built by the Qajar Dynasty and was later improved and completed by the Shahs of Pahlavi Dynasty (1925 to 1979). In order to be able to appreciate Sa’dabad and all its glory, we need a whole different article and at least a week inside its splendid museums and gorgeous gardens. The fact that its Museum of Fine Arts contains paintings from great artists like Jules Breton, Ivan Shishkin and even Salvador Dali is enough to persuade any art enthusiast. After hearing about this magnificent place, our new friend, Darband River, was as curious as us, he paid a visit to this complex, creating perfect scenes for photographers and painters.

After taking a short rest and having lunch, we move towards a more modern side of our tour, Bagh Ferdows. The area in front of Bagh Ferdows is one of the hangout spots for the young artistic generation of Tehran. Teenage girls and boys are hanging out there with their funky and hip style, their big headphones on their ears and sometimes even a guitar. This area is a live anthropology museum on its own, it shows you a surprising community in Iran, how the country is changing, what the next generation looks like and how they think and behave.

Our anthropology class will continue in Imamzadeh Saleh Shrine and Tajrish Bazaar. In Imamzadeh Saleh we will witness all kinds of people of different ages, colors and backgrounds, praying or showing respect to this holy place. In Tajrish Bazaar which is one of the most important bazaars of Tehran, We will observe energetic people of Tehran moving in chaotic patterns. We will notice old folks wandering around, as they have been doing it for years, Shopping here is like an addiction to them.

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!

It was such a great experience, all the aspects were good, the cool Darband, the complex and the food. Abbas, our guide, gave us an unforgettable tour in the north of Tehran! I would definitely recommend this tour if you are planning on seeing the real taste of the rich kids of Tehran.

great time at darband

We had a great time on the northern Tehran tour. Our guide abas was amazing. Best guide we come across;) Also, one suggestion. We skipped the holy shrine and spent more time in Darband and shopped at Tajrish, which was a great decision since we were traveling with kids.
