Overview

Zoroastrian Episodic Tour

This is an episodic Zoroastrian tour; because all its events are related to a religious idea. In fact, this idea is known via its interrelated parts. The fire temple is the first place that we visit to get essential information about the following things.

The advent of Zoroaster (Zoroastrian Prophet), philosophy of the temples, philosophy of the fire, some lessons from the holy fire, and an ancient symbol with more than 4000 background. There, we will find out the answers to such questions: What caused fire as a natural element, to be used as a cultural element by Zoroastrians? How many years the holy Fire is burning? Where was its original source? And so much more.

Generally, after informing about basic Zoroastrianism ideas, we will see a Zoroastrian historical and cultural museum, Marker museum, which lets us become familiar with popular aspects of Zoroastrians such as traditional festivals, Zoroastrian costumes, new Zoroastrian educational features, etc.

The third step of the tour is the Tower of Silence. The only grave tower that you can step inside all over the world. A sight with one of the greatest cultural and economic scuffle background during the 19th century. There, you will hear about a historic leap in Iranian society when an Indian man came to Iran and reformed Zoroastrian society in the 19th century. You will also learn how Zoroastrians keep the dead bodies at a distance in a specific way. Here are many questions about the Zoroastrians ritual: What rules did it have? What did Zoroastrians do with their dead bodies in olden times? And what do they do nowadays?

After passing the Tower of silence, we go back to the city center to have lunch and take a short rest. Then we drive towards two Zoroastrian villages, Cham and Mobarakeh, with a 20 km distance from Yazd. At the end of the tour, we will drive to a Zoroastrian Shrine called Pir-e Naraki, 35 km far from Yazd which is located among some small mount with an attractive view. A Shrine with a mythical narrative background.

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!

I did the Tour for a specific reason for University and im totally statisfied. The knowledge about Zoroastiranism is very good and you will have the chance to dive into an old, nearly forgotten culture. Thank you Amir.

had a blast in Yazd

A guy in our hustel recommend tappersia “ zorastrian tour around Yazd” I am so happy we booked the tour with Amin, our guide and I was very happy I did that with Amin, he took us to the historical sites and showed us interesting places such as the fire temple and the gallery next to it. The breeze in the village was such a delight in the spring too. Overall i greatly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it.

The best

The awesome thing about the tour is that it gives you a prospect of the lifestyle, culture and beliefs of the people of Iran. It’s not just another boring guided tour that tells you interesting stories and beliefs of the minority of people who still live in Yazd. I was so moved by their beliefs and rituals. They kept the fire burning for centuries.. Whaaaaaaaat!!

Behnam was fantastic! The guy know Zorastrian religion like the back of his hand. We had an amazing time till we got lost in the gallery next to the museum, the guide found us! We are grateful for having Amin as the guide, incredibly kind to us and showed us all around the Zoroastrian sites in Yazd. i would highly recommend this as a way to see Iran.

Amazing way to touch the culture

It is the best way to see the traditional Persian in a short period of time. The guide is super friendly and knowledgeable and patient without questions. We had the chance to sit with the residence and see their victory ceremony at their house and it was great. Best 30 euros I have spent.

The best fun in the country

"We had Behnam as our guide and even though we had two teenagers, he managed to keep the tour vibrant, very friendly and welcoming and super fun. The detail on each monument was sufficient, in summary it was a really fun trip and an excellent way to see the city of Yazd. Don’t hesitate and do it! "
