Overview

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(Yazd tours). 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.

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.
