Yazd to Shiraz Pick Up Tour

Our road-trip starts by picking you up from Yazd and going to Shiraz. However, on the way, you have the chance to see some of the must-see historical and archeological attractions such as Abarkuh, Pasargad, and Persepolis. In the end you’ll be dropped off in the magnificent city of Shiraz.

First, we will go to visit the 5th old tree in the world, Sarv-e Abarkuh, in Yazd. This 4000-year-old tree which is also known as Cypress of Abarkuh and Zoroastrian Sarv is one of the natural monuments that are worth a visit. Suitable natural conditions and its location are the major reasons for this 25 meters high tree’s long life. There are stories that this tree was planted by the Zoroaster. This eternal evergreen tree attracts many people to visit this marvelous natural and historical site.

Pasargad is the other fascinating historical site that you will visit, as you get close to Shiraz. 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. He found a golden bed, drinking vessels and an inscription on the tomb. There is a disagreement between the experts about what is actually written on it but it is translated as “I am Cyrus, the king of Achaemenid who created an empire in Persia, I know you shall come, grudge me not this little earth that covers my body.” Probably this inscription is the reason that we still have this UNESCO world heritage site.

Persepolis, also known as Takht-e Jamshid was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid empire. In 515 BC, Darius the Great ordered to build this royal city and it spanned six generations to be completely built. Kings built their own magnificent palaces with big halls, showing the greatness of this tremendous empire. It was a testament to the glory periods of their empire which, unfortunately, after the invasion of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian King, was burned in the fire. Still, the ruins and remains of the high columns and statues can show how glorious the Achaemenid empire was. This UNESCO world heritage site attracts many tourists from all over the world to see the remainings of the empire’s eminence.

Pack your bags, fasten your seatbelts cause we are going to an unforgettable road-trip. A road-trip which contains visiting some of the fascinating sites on the way.

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!
