Overview

Pasargad, Persepolis & Necropolis Tour

The ancient gardens of Pasargad, one of Iran’s fascinating Unesco World Heritage sites, are reached easily by car from Shiraz. Pasargad was the site of royal gardens and palaces, nowadays the remains of this palatial complex are magnificently visible. The first place we visit is the tomb of Cyrus, the most intact monument in Pasargad. It includes large cubes of white stones lying over each other like stairs and there’s also a cubic construction on the top.

In the center of the area, the remains of several palaces with four gardens exist. The palaces had main halls with tall pillars. Even after 2500 years, it’s astonishingly glorious and you can imagine when Cyrus, the Great King walked through this elegant set. While visiting the different parts of the sight, you can also enjoy local food in the village and admire regionally produced handicrafts.
The next stop is Persepolis, the ceremonial capital of the greatest Empire. Darius the Great began establishing this new capital in 519 BC and later his successors added to this rich splendor over the years. You will observe the remarkable remain of official palaces. By watching the noble high reliefs, towering gates and pillars, you will stand in awe and wonder how they made all these that time.
The magnificent Necropolis (Naqsh-e Rustam) is only a short distance from the glories of Persepolis, so consider visiting the tombs of the kings after we’ve explored the city of the Persians. This stunning ancient site contains four tombs carved into the rock face, at a great height. Four tombs each originally containing the sarcophagus of an Achaemenid king and they lie behind the cross-shaped entrance, high above the ground.
At Naqsh-e Rustam you can also admire the splendid Ka’ba-ye Zartosht (Cube of Zoroaster), a 5th century BCE Achaemenid square tower.

Note: Remember to bring your camera, hat & sunscreen cream.

Excellent service and support Excellent Service ! i am surprised by the reactivity and the will to help and find quickly hotels, flights and solutions for me, even though the holiday season makes things challenging. Chatting through whatsapp made things super smooth and extremely easy. I was interacting with two people from TAP Persia, Rojin and Sohrab. They were just amazing ! They are the ones who reached out to me directly and interacted instantly with me day and night. Great job guys !I used earlier a different company but i was disappointed, i strongly recommend TAP Persia .Keep up the great work !

Fabulous agency - can't recommend more highly for travellers to Iran I decided to go to Iran at short notice and was only able to do so thanks to the exceptional service provided by TAP Persia.What further complicated was my ignorance of being in the middle of Nowruz and the impact that has on flight availabilities etc.In the first instance, that revolved around speedy obtainment of a visa as well as other aspects such as insurance and mah card via their great-value welcome pack.Thereafter, all of my accommodation, tour guides and transport between destinations was arranged by the beyond-wonderful Mahgol with tremendous efficiency, patience and responsiveness - I could not praise nor thank her enough.Communications are as good as can be.With my lack of Farsi and, more specifically, incomprehension of the alphabet, doing things in this manner was the only way to go.All of the guides - Fatemah, Amin, Fardin, Moji, Peyman and Masoud - were fantastic being passionate, knowledgeable, smarter-than-average bears and very nice people.Rasool, Mehrnoush and Sohrab in the office were also very helpful.I would say though that, to help them (especially) to try to draft your itinerary as much as possible before approaching them as this will save time i.e. places, days in each, hotel price-range then trust them to select the latter for you.

Great Service :) TApersia accompanied us well on the way to our Iran visa. My wife's visa took 2 weeks longer than mine (German EU & I'm Swiss). Our questions were always answered quickly by the nice Mahgol via WhatsApp. We think she did her best for our visa processing. After a while, we were also asked how we were doing! Nice, support and promptness are at the highest level.

Solo Saudi female in <3 IRAN <3 10/10. It's hard for me to be succinct, but I will try. I am a Saudi who has been impressed, curious, and infatuated by Iranian culture(s), Iron Age history, Islamic & other religious histories, architecture, and geography for over 15 years. Yum, and food. I wanted initially to continue my Persian language study at Dehkhoda Institute, however student visas take much longer than other visas to process, and I would likely miss my class during the processing time. I was disheartened and scrambled through my Google bookmarks looking for old travel that I had saved over the years in my Iran folder. ;) TAP Persia was bookmarked numerous times and I quickly applied for a tourist visa. Hey, I can still practice some Persian as a tourist, right? THE PROCESS WAS SO EASY. So smooth! Mahgol deserves all the praise and recognition for bringing relief to my anxious-self (because I had already long-ago booked my airline tickets and took time off work!), and she walked me through all the steps in a timely manner and with competence and grace. Even during the first week of Norouz and Ramadan, I got a friendly update and advice -- got my tourist visa within 5 or 6 days (the Ministry was closed for Ramarouz, but WOW that was still quick). I cried from happiness and surprise... Thank you thank you. I will be in Iran April to mid-May. Originally I just registered for TAP Persia welcome package + visa help, but now I'm pretty curious about signing up for one or 2 of their tours now. I am beyond impressed and excited. This travel company, Mahgol, & this team already made me feel safe and like I'm going home, and I imagine with their business practice, will prosper for many years down the road. Thank you so much. Someone please remind me to update this post with photos once I arrive to Iran <3

Iranvisum Ich habe mein Visa für den Iran über TAP Persia beantragt, da der normale Weg zu kompliziert war und sehr viele potentielle Fehler birgt. Ich kann den Service definitiv empfehlen. Alles ist sehr gut und detailliert beschrieben. Der Preis für diesen Service ist es in meinen Augen definitiv Wert. Auch der Kontakt nach der Beantragung über WhatsApp war sehr gut. Sehr freundlich und hilfreich.

Exquisitely Serene and Relaxing

The imperial site is a relaxing and serene setting located in Shiraz, Persepolis, Pasargad, and Necropolis. there's a magnificent entrance in the entrance which I took 1000 photos with and it was not enough!

Garden delight

It was a beautiful ancient site. bigger than what I expected, but it's a very nice atmosphere. I really enjoyed walking in among the ancient stones, lovely sculptures and listening to Mojtbaba's history lessons, and rest out on the benches.
