Overview

Old Tehran Daily Tour

During this one day trip, We want to know the history of Iran’s Capital City. Let’s start our day with the National Iranian Museum, the largest archeological and historical museum of Iran. It consists of two distinct buildings covering Iran’s Prehistoric and Islamic times. The ancient Iran museum with red brick facade is located among several towering trees and in front of a large pool. It has two floors full of historical handicrafts which date back to the Paleolithic era. The oldest one is more than one million years old. Don’t forget to visit the artistic objects of the Medes, Parthians and Achaemenids. The other building is the Islamic museum, which covers items from the beginning of Islam to the Qajar era.

While walking on Tehran’s streets, you get familiar with people’s culture, taboos and customs. We will be heading towards one of the best places to get in touch with Tehran’s unique culture: the Tehran City Park (Parke Shahr-e Tehran). In fact, it’s the oldest and the vastest park of Tehran, which has various plants. A gloriously rich library is another reason why the park is so famous. A noticeable section in the park is the Peace Museum of Tehran. Its purpose is to expand Peace all over the world, showing the harmful results of wars using themes from the First & Second World War, the nuclear bombing in Japan and the Iran-Iraq war. The other sections include the aquarium, the birds garden and a sport field.

Our next destination is Golestan Palace. It’s located in the middle of a garden which is registered under Unesco’s World Heritage sites. Construction began in the time of one of the Safavid Kings, Shah Abbas. Later, one of the most important events took place in the same palace, was the crowning of the first Qajar king. When you walk inside, you face a garden covered by lots of tall trees and vivacious plants. The magnificent edifice with lively colors, in front of a turquoise pool, will motivate you to walk in the fresh area for hours and clear your mind. The palatial aristocratic halls make submerge you in a world of art. As Qajar kings started travelling to Europe, they were inspired by the various architectures of the time. You can see their influence all over the many Iranian European styles of the Palace.

The Tehran Grand Bazaar dates back to the Qajar era. Under its arched artistic ceilings, you can stroll through the old winding aisles, and buy souvenirs for your family and friends. The sunlight travels through the traditional air conditioners and makes the bazaar’s atmosphere superbly light. You can also visit some old cafes and traditional gyms (zoorkhaneh) in this bazaar. The renowned Shah Mosque of Tehran, built in the same period as the nearby bazaar. There are four porches on each side of the area and a basin in the middle. You will stand in awe by observing buff-colored bricks and colourful tiles in its facade.

The national jewelry museum of Tehran is placed in the bank security center, related to the jewelry kings bought since Safavid time. We can mention some of the most important items of the collections like Diamond ‘Daria-i-Noor’ (Light sea), Kings’ crowns, thrones and etc. Our latter stop is Azadi Tower, known as Shahyad tower before the revolution. Being a memento for 2500-year Iran celebrations, you easily get impressed by its imposing construction which is a combination of Achaemenid, Sassanid and Islamic architecture.

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!

Once we got to the grand bazaar we didn’t want to leave. Our guide was so knowledgeable of the history of Tehran and did an amazing job of timing with the location. Please remember to recommend this tour to others, cause it's the best time anyone can have in Iran.

Great!!

Great experience! A wonderful way to get around and see some sights without having to get stuck in traffic. Our guide, Abbass, did an awesome job giving out fun facts while also being very entertaining. P.S: you can shop in the grand bazaar and abbas know the best stores to shop for clothes and food.

lovly ity and beautiful expeience

My favorite part of our trip to Iran was the old Tehran daily. Abbas was exceptional with information and quite funny. If you just got to Iran, he would encourage you to stay more time in Tehran as he knows when to be where. I asked him to take me to the daily market on our way and he happily took me there. Exceptional job Abbas!!

Tour guide Abbas was a blast!!

Wife and I first visited the national museum. This was a good time and relaxing. We had the best tour guide Abbas. His knowledge about Iran and Iranian was outstanding. And he was extremely humble and funny. It was like meeting an old friend in Perisa. This tour opened up learning the history of Iran. Don’t miss this, Even Steven, Belgium.
