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.

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.

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).
