Overview

Varzaneh Oasis Historical Tour

Varzaneh desert, also called Khara or Hasan Abad desert is located about 100 km out of Isfahan and It takes about an hour to get there. The best times to visit are the first parts of spring and autumn, due to the mild weather which is out of this world. Although it is worth mentioning that deserts have harsh freezing nights and you need to pack warm clothing. The international Gavkhouni Wetland provides this desert with some humidity and you should expect pleasing moist sand dunes.

You can relax while enjoying fascinating diverse views made by the wind that blows there and changes the sand dunes’ shape. You can walk on the soft sands with naked feet and let nature do its work. Another option is riding boards, you can rent a board and ride down the sand hills and if you ever got tired, there are off-road cars waiting to take and show you the beauties of this place. Some other activities you can participate in are paragliding, zip lining, bike riding and stargazing.

Photography at night is also suggested. When Varzaneh goes to sleep you will find yourself surrounded by numerous shining stars which are moving gently in the endless sky creating the perfect opportunity for photography. Only one night is enough to feel the difference between this magnificent universe and our normal routine lives.

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!

Reza

    His body light as the wind hides his soul of sand Between adobe walls that blend with the color of the earth In a narrow alley a beautiful wooden door opens giving way to an extensive patio with a fountain in the middle Reza receives us with her hands of sand. With his slim body and smile on his lips If you travel to Iran look for the desert in the hands of Reza and let the wind take you to those places that you hope to find on your trip Give Reza a hand and keep discovering the soul of the people Keep discovering those men and women that you went to look for those places where your steps took you Find Reza and you will find the desert, the beautiful adobe houses and a wooden door always open to dreams

    Bellissima esperienza!

    Abbiamo partecipato a questo tour a Giugno 2019 ed è stato fantastico! Reza è stato molto disponibile e gentile e ha fatto si che questa esperienza fosse speciale. Scendere dalle dune su una tavola è stato divertentissimo, camminare in un lago salato, fare un picnic sotto il cielo stellato e guardare l'alba nel deserto sono state esperienze che difficilmente dimenticherò! Grazie Reza!

    Great experience!

    The tour was well organized, we liked it very much! It was maybe the best experience we had during our trip in Iran. Salt lake was beautiful and we had a lot of fun on the dunes doing sandboarding! We also loved having breakfast on the roof of an old caravanserai at the sunrise. Reza is a special person, he's very kind and careful and he speaks English perfectly. I absolutely suggest this tour!

    magnificent scenery

    It is the first time in my life that I went out of the country and I should say the scenery became more attractive than walking bare feet in Kavir! Excellent guide and magnificent scenery. We had a lot of fun, even though it was the end of winter but Sohrab managed to help each and everyone to have fun. Next year we’ll be back here.

    One of the highlights of our holidays in Iran

      We had a wonderful time in Varzaneh. I can recommend this tour not only because of the wonderful nature and all the sights we visited, but also because Reza is a very good guide. It was a pleasure spending time with him. We learned a lot not only about the sights but also about the life in Iran. Most of all we were impressed by the really big salt lake and the sand dunes nearby. At first I was a bit scared, but sandboarding was real fun. Booking this tour via tappersia was easy, a very friendly and helpful contact. It was no problem to end the tour in Kashan instead of Isfahan.

      love the place!

      This is a place we totally love, celebrating Christmas here this year. I and my friends came to Iran for the first time in winter and with only a little time we had booked the varzaneh tour in Isfahan with tappersia. There are so many routes that we didn’t manage to check them out but still, we had so much fun. it totally worth it.

      Great tour with Reza!

      Thanks Reza and Sina for taking us to the salt lake and the desert! They both took very good care of us. Salt Lake was a beautiful surprise for us. Staying overnight in the desert was a bit crowded and noisy, so try to avoid the weekends.

      Enjoying sand & salt in Varzaneh

      We went on the Salt Lake and Desert tour with Reza and we enjoyed it very much! Walking in a salty lake is a unique experience. The sand dunes are beautiful at sunset and we had great fun going down the hills on a sand board. Reza’s English knowledge is remarkable, we especially liked his openness and he will make sure that you have nothing to worry about during the trip.

      2 days in desert

      We spent 2 days in the desert from Isfahan to varzaneh on a private tour for 6 people. The spectacular landscape took away all our concerns and buried them in sand dunes. Ali our driver guide and sohrab made us Ko Ko sabzi. Varzaneh is beautiful and has so much to offer!
