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.

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!

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.
