Overview

Kharanaq, Chak Chak, Meybod Tour

This is a multiple tour since you will observe three sights with an economic aspect, one with religious and mythical features, a village with a rich historic background, and a military citadel.

Kharanaq village

There are top ten villages in Iran as the most-seen sight in which Kharanq is one of them. A historical village that you walk in it for hours with spectacular views which are suitable for taking some professional photos. You have the chance to get to know people’s lifestyles in more than ten centuries.

Chak Chak shrine

This site is set about 115 kilometers northeast of Yazd. After passing Kharanaq village, we will drive through a mountainous road with spectacular views to the most-seen Shine. A Zoroastrian sight, located among mounts. There is a story behind this fascinating site, which is a combination of myth and history.
Zoroastrians, from all over the world, gather there every year from 14th till 18th of June.

City of Meybod

The historic city of the desert. It is located 50 km from the western-north of the city of Yazd. At there you have the chance to visit the following sites.

1. Narin citadel

A citadel with approximately 5000 years old life. It has been used as a stable residential for many dynasties.

2. Caravanserai Shah Abbasi

Imagine you are traveling in a desert and suddenly a group of brigands attack, to plunder your merchandise and probably kill you. There is no place to go. The only way is to escape. After a while, you see the walls of shelter and then you feel safe.
That shelter is called caravanserai; an old inn as a hilly safety place with specific and exclusive structure dating back to 400 hundred years ago.

3. Zilu museum

A 5000-year-old handcraft called Zilu, a kind of Iranian carpet that is famous all over the world. This small museum is located in Caravanserai. There is an 800-year-old Zilu in this museum.

4. Pony Express

How people delivered the mails and governmental messages in olden times in Iran? How old is the post office in Iran? Who was the first king that used this system? What have you heard about the first post office main road in the world? You are going to know all the answers to these questions in this fascinating site.

5. Ice House

There is a building in Meybod which shows us how people in olden times could make huge pieces of ice without any electric devices. If you are so avid to see the olden technology of making ice, accompany us.

6. Pigeon House

How many pigeons have you ever had? Two? Three? Ten? Or twenty? How about 4000 pigeons? Is it possible to feed 4000 pigeons? Which kind of nest is suitable for them? Are you interested to know how people, in four hundred years ago, could feed thousands of pigeons, and Why? If the answer is yes, you are lucky enough to see this attraction.

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!

recommended!!

We had some amazing trips to the mud-brick villages from our hotel. We walked up through the village and to the top of the hills to have a view. it was just like movies. The views from the top were spectacular and all of the parts such as the pigeon tower made it incredible. Stopping by to see the Zoroastrian fire temple in the village of chak chak was the highlight of the trip. I’d definitely recommend them for your next trip!

Amazing

Visited chak chak on a nice afternoon in a private tour with masoud and I can honestly say this was the most spectacular tour I have had in Iran so far. The hike to the top to visit the fire burning for years was worth every step. Unfortunately, my shoes couldn’t make it and Masoud was so nice to give me his sandals for the rest. This was the part of my trip I remember for many years. Thank you tappersia!

GRET SETTING

Karma winds our way through the narrow mud-brick alleys of the kharanaq village, we put shoes on the footsteps of people from 4500 years ago, and took incredible pictures with the city. Stunning views and great company. The hill is fascinating, and the views over it is great. Take good shoes, it can rain and the stones get a little bit slippery.

worth experiencing,

From Isfahan to Yazd we stopped by to visit the villages on the way and have some launches. Masoud ordered a local launch for the four of us and it was the best chicken I had. Far from the food, the village itself is interesting. A few people still live there according to our guide and beyond the smell of mud, picturesque views and beautiful empty buildings were really noticeable.
