Overview

Zoroastrian Tour in Yazd Vicinity

Zoroastrianism is one of the most wondrous religions in the whole world. Unlike the past, now it has turned into small communities in different parts of the world. Yazd Province in Iran is one of the places which has a Zoroastrian community. This Zoroastrian Tour in Yazd vicinity will make you familiar with this amazing culture.

Dakhmeh, which is a Zoroastrian cemetery, is a little bit different than other kinds of cemeteries. There’s a place on top of the soil towers where they used to put the dead bodies inside. It has an interesting story behind it, which preferably you would hear it in the Cham Dakhmeh.

There are some natural sights worth visiting such as Mobarakeh’s big twin cypresses (Sarv) which are 550 years old. One of the oldest trees in the country, Cham cypress (Sarv) is 3500 years old.

Anyone who has visited Yazd knows hospitality and kindness of Yazd people. A very kind, gentle-hearted woman, called Dowlat Khanoom, is waiting to welcome us in Persian with a sweet melodic accent in her house.

Visiting the Markar museum, the Zoroastrian History, and Culture museum, located in Yazd, with a local Zoroastrian leader will make you properly familiar with traditional celebrations and rituals of the Zoroastrians, traditional dress code of Zoroastrians, Zoroastrian holy shrines such as Chak Chak, Qale Asadan, and etc.

Qale Asadan (Seti Pir) is one of the Zoroastrian holy shrines such as other shrines like Chak Chak. But this one, not everyone has heard of and there’s a story behind it, so Qale Asadan is more mysterious. Our leader will explain all about that.

At the end of the course, if you have plans to know things about Zoroastrians, you must see a fire temple and hear all the history behind it from a Zoroastrian.

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.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

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!

Amazing!!

The tour guide woke us up from our hotel and took us to the atashkadeh. The great yard in front was so picturesque that we couldn’t get enough pictures. the extreme pool and the nice garden were so beautiful. The young guy explained the basic rules of the Zoratrians and we went to see the fire which has been burning for 27 years which is weird and marvelous. As my mom zorastrain beliefs in the single God and the fire holy for them.

Best tour guide ever

We had an informative, insightful, and enjoyable tour with Amir, visiting the historic and ancient zorastian sites in Yazd. It was an unforgettable afternoon with my parents. My parents had a great relationship with the guide and they have been talking about Amir’s caring and kind manners all the time since we returned. I never thought existing a rich culture in the desert and one of the world's oldest religions which predates Christianity and Islam. All the best

zorastrain Fire temple

We got our visa with the company and mentioned that we are interested in history and culture. Rasol interested us in a day trip visit to the zoroastrians temples. We really enjoyed this visit. It was very interesting to see this place and meet the other visitors. It got more interesting when we stopped and meditated for a while on top of the hill. Thank you rasol for arranging this trip.

A must visit

It was quite a special place, it displays fire which has been burned for centuries. The building next to it had a gallery and museum too, our guide Masod explained everything and let us explore the museum on our own, which was quite a relief. The company arranged our tour in the afternoon, away from the sunlight so we had a nice time enjoying the new information Amin provided. The hike to the top of the hill was the best part, you'll be able to see how The culture let the corpse leave the earth. Thank you Tappersia!

good service and guide

Found tappersia online and they were the only ones who professionally handled my inquiry. I set my daily trip with parnian and she didn't mind. The local sightseeing in Yazd was amazing, Masod showed me around and we walked to the fire temple. He was well behaved and we visited the building next to it. One thing I appreciated was that the tour was flexible and he didn’t rush us to go shopping or donate (usually common at such tourist places in other countries).
