Many of the elements we’ll admire today, date to the 19th century when local Qajari architects and artisans were looking to integrate traditional Persian style with elements of Western and Russian origin. The palace buildings are among the oldest in modern Tehran and they are still regarded as a crowning achievement of the Qajar era.

Then, we will walk around the Tehran Grand Bazaar. The second largest grand bazaar in Iran after Tabriz.

We have a full day of driving today to reach our destination of Isfahan.

We will have some stops on our way to visit the legendary City of Persepolis (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the former capital of Darius the Great founded in 512 BC. There was no more impressive construction in the ancient world, except perhaps the Karnak in Egypt.

Later, we will journey to the Necropolis (Naghsh-e Rostam), to view the astonishing tombs of the four Achaemenid kings: Darius the Great, Xerxes, Artaxerxes, and Darius II. Carved into the sacred Mount Rahmat, these tombs are a sight to behold.

Entering through a portico with twenty slender wooden columns, we’ll discover soaring halls embellished with frescoes, paintings, and mosaics; the Hall of Mirrors is especially breathtaking!

Next up is the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Naghsh-e Jahan Square (Royal Square). This 17th-century site is one of the largest public spaces in the world. Here in the square, we’ll visit the 17th-century Shah Mosque, revered as a masterpiece of Islamic architecture and easily recognized by its magnificent tile-work and soaring cupola and minarets. We will also visit Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, also known as the Ladies Mosque, as it was built for the Shah’s harem, renowned for its brightly colored domed ceiling, where the light creates the image of a peacock. In the Ali Qapu Palace, we’ll marvel at its beautiful music rooms and the balconies where Safavid kings would sit to enjoy the polo matches unfolding in the square below. We’ll end our exploration of the square by visiting the Qeisarieh Bazaar.

Customer Reviews

Highly Recommended Tour with SurfIran

Such a fantastic tour! I was unsure about traveling to Iran as a solo female, but I felt confident going with SurfIran. Hamed in SurfIran was extremely helpful in assisting me to secure a travel visa, travel insurance, and in answering all of my queries to prepare me. He was even helpful in tailoring the tour to my needs (as I could not arrive on the first day in Tehran) and I was still welcomed at the airport by a different guide to take me to the hotel and get set up in Shiraz.

All Fine

All fine. Good communication in the setup. The visas, payment, and flights etc went smoothly.

The most important aspect of a tour is the guide and Nima excelled. A great networker with sophisticated English he understands his mainly western audience well and does in depth historical research for his own interest. Read More

Go! Don’t listen to the media

I cannot express my gratitude to Paria, my guide Ali and SURFIRAN for my tour around Shiraz and Isfahan. As a European and solo travelled , safety was a worry but it was great. Iranian people are so welcoming. I would love to join them again soon. Thanks a lot.

Put Iran on your bucket list.

A fabulous tour of a small slice of Iran. Thanks to Saya from Surfiran who helped with our private tour arrangements and visas. She was helpful with all of our pre tour needs.
Iran is definitely a country with SF o much to experience – friendly, safe, and do much history and beauty.

Unforgettable Iranian experience!

Iran is a must destination the best is its people. If you want to travel to Iran I definitely recommend Surfiran ! Paria is an amazing organizer, guides are impeccable. I specifically suggest seeing more than the classic Iran route to grasp deeper insides of Iran !! I chose Tabriz and it was great this region has a lot to offer !

Simply amazing!!!!!!

Surfiran made my husband’s dream come true! My husband had always had fascination for Iran and I am crazy about traveling.
Paria, contacted me to see if we were still interested since I had enquired about Iran before. Without ever having met Paria has an amazing ability to put your concerns at ease. Extremely professional and the 15 day tour was well organized. We had great help in getting the visas. Read More
