Overview

Rocky village of Meymand

We start our tour from Kerman and on the way to Meymand, we will have a look at the numerous Pistachio farms of Kerman. On the way to Meymand we spot the beautiful, mineral-rich mountains of the region.

The village has 350 hand-dug houses which date back to approximately 3000 years ago. However, the region has a much longer history behind it. Stone carvings from 10,000 years ago have been found in the region. When in the village, we will visit the caves, climb up the village valleys, and meet with the welcoming locals. We will spend the night in one of the many man-made caves of the village with their black ceilings and walls which is an experience unlike any other.

The homemade traditional meals will be another highlight of our journey. We also visit the largest cave of the village which is the gathering place of inhabitants and is used as the mosque of the village. A visit to the small museum of Meymand to learn about the lifestyle of the people who have lived there will be the perfect ending to our tour.

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!

Time travel

Although there are lots of historic sites in Iran, it was worth the visit in Meybod. walking the narrow path of Meybod. It was worth the ride.

brilliant idea

We visited the Ancient city Meybuod in the morning and we had the breakfast in the rocky hostel. The hostel is just amazing. Then we had lunch in there. We just wanted the taste of Persian food. Such a brilliant place to pay a visit. It was a whole day tour to get to Kerman, especially when you are planning to go right to Kerman the next day!

Quiet a unesco site

An easy walk to the old city of Meybod with a hell of a guide, so helpful and have an answer for every question. What a thrill! There were majestic sites. I think some attention needs to be put into the buildings and preservation. Don't miss the visit.
