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.

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.

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.
