Overview

Persepolis and Necropolis Tour

Shiraz is home to historical sites and monuments such as the Pink Mosque, Hafez Tomb, Narenjestan-e Ghavam and Vakil Bazaar. Only 60 km Northeast of Shiraz the capital of the Achaemenid empire is located. Achaemenid is one of the most effective eras in Iranian culture and history. It is also one of the fragments that many Iranians are proud of especially for the reign of Cyrus the Great and Darius the Great. Besides their inventions, the most magnificent legacies of Achaemenids are rightly Persepolis and the royal tombs of Necropolis.

Persepolis(Shiraz tour), also known as Takht-e Jamshid was the ceremonial capital of the empire. The order of building this separate place came from Darius the Great in 515 BC, but it took six generations to be fully built. Achamaenedi Kings formed their own unique palaces in order to show the importance of this splendid empire. It was a symbol and a testament to the glory periods of their empire which, unfortunately, was ruined after the invasion of Alexander the Great. However, the wrecks and remainings of the high columns and statues can illustrate how glorious the Achaemenid empire was. This UNESCO world heritage site attracts many people from all over the world.

Necropolis (Naqsh-e Rostam) stands 12 km Northwest of Persepolis. The tombs of four Achaemenid kings, Darius the Great, Xerxes, Artaxerxes and Darius II are buried in the mountain with a remarkable height above the ground. These tombs feature carved panels with the figures of the Sasanian king, Shapur I accepting the Roman emperor, Valerian’s surrender.

It takes more than two hours to walk around Persepolis and an hour or less for seeing Naghsh-e Rostam, but these are the sites that you’ll regret if you don’t visit while you’re in Iran. Have your sunglasses with you and a bottle of water since you are about to have a long walk through history.


Note: If you chose to go to Pasargard (Cyrus Tomb) the tour will take the whole day.

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.

Bucket list achieved

As the most amazing trip of a lifetime. met at the airport by mojtba and we drove all the way to Persepolis. we stopped for some breakfast as he knew the best spot, his house. from Shiraz to Persepolis he gave some information about the empire. Always attentive without being overbearing. He made a difference from good days to great days, always happy to go above and beyond. can't wait to return!
