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.

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!

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!!!

Good driver from shiraz to Yazd

If you don't know which company to get transportations from, choose tappersia. our guide was very knowledgeable who also passionately respected us and let us explore the sites of Pasargad by ourselves. The vehicle was super clean and everything ran on time. thank you tappersia
