Overview

Shiraz to Yazd Pick Up Tour

Our adventure starts at the moment that we leave the home of spectacular monuments. Not very far from Shiraz you will see the legacies of Achaemenid empire, and Pasargad. Persepolis, also known as Takht-e Jamshid was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid empire. Darius the Great ordered to build this royal city and it spanned six generations to be completely built. It became a testament to the glory periods of their empire which unfortunately, after the invasion of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian King, the whole city burned in fire. This UNESCO world heritage site attracts many tourists from all over the world to see the remaining columns and ruined statues of the empire’s eminence.

Pasargad (Shiraz tour)is the other fascinating historical site you get to see on the way to Yazd. Pasargad was the capital of the Achaemenid empire at the time of Cyrus the Great. Today it is believed to be the mausoleum of this mighty king. This mausoleum has six steps which lead to the chamber with about 3 meters long. There is a story that says when Alexander the Great looted Persepolis, he sent one of his warriors to get in the monument and see what is in it and then destroy it. However, he didn’t destroy it because of the inscription he found on the tomb.

In the end, we will get to the 5th oldest tree in the world, Sarv-e Abarkuh with 25 meters high which is located in Yazd province. This 4000-year-old tree which is also known as Cypress of Abarkuh is one of the natural monuments that is worth a visit. Major reasons for this tree’s long life are the suitable natural conditions and its location. There are stories that this tree was planted by a Zoroaster.

These historical monuments with long distance far from each other are offered to you on the way from Shiraz to the breathtaking city of Yazd, which helps you save time and money by visiting these monuments on the way and enjoy a nice road trip in Iran with a local.

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.

great with some communication effort

The driver was personable, the service is reliable I didn't have to check the maps to see where he was taking me. Also, I asked for a quiet driver and I got one. I took my greatest nap in there. Respect tappersia!

Unbeatable price-service balance, just great

Mojtaba our guide was amazing... the respect and the words he chose interested the tour even more... I couldn’t stop listening to his stories and the history behind that... I hope humanity will learn more about their history and the rules they have created to put society in disciplines...

Comfortbale and fun

We had a very informative compassionate guide who took us to Persepolis and Pasargaad and explained the lifestyle of ancient Persians. Mojtaba speaks English VERY well. Also, a nice guide who tells a lot about the future too. Recommend this tour!!!
