I had an amazing time in Iran due to the amazing service provided by Tap Persia. Since the first contact Maryam and Rasool were super helpful, willing to explain everything we needed and replying in a very effective manner at all times. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in Iran and I strongly recommend them to everyone that wants to have a relaxed yet fun and cultural experience in Iran.
Hope to come back to the country soon and share more amazing times with you!

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!

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a 13-day trip to Iran, organized with the help of Rasool from TAP Persia.

We wanted to explore the country more or less independently, but have the logistic part taken care of, so we only got accommodation and drivers booked through TAP Persia instead of a full guided trip. They were very flexible about our request and changed the itinerary to accommodate all our preferences, while offering advice on how to best plan our vacation. More specifically, we chose a private car and driver between the cities (different driver for each segment), a guided overnight stay to Lut Desert (guide + local guide for an offroad drive, for a bit of adventure), a guided trip to Persepolis/Pasargadae/Nasq-e Rostam and another guide for a separate desert trip in Isfahan (which we later decided to skip and just go with the guide to visit Isfahan), while we had the freedom to organize everything else on the spot, according to what we wanted to do on the day.

We were extremely happy with how easy and smooth everything went and glad we chose an agency for the logistic part. TAP Persia and Rasool, in particular, were very friendly and professional and always available to provide any support we needed. There was no single problem or glitch in the 2 weeks we stayed there, even while protests were starting to happen in the larger cities. Everyone took really good care of us and this collaboration saved us a lot of time and hassle! All our drivers and guides were absolutely fabulous people (even the few of them who didn't speak English) - they were all super kind, really helped us get to know the country better and understand more about the Persian culture. Every single one of them was always on time and always delivering what was promised, if not more!

I've travelled to almost 40 countries across the globe and, after researching about Iran, I had very high expectations of this trip. However, this country was still one of the biggest positive surprises ever, mainly because of the incredible hospitality we were met with. All the guides and locals we met along the way were some of the most genuine and honest people we have ever come across in all our travels so far. The people, I think, are what differentiate Iran from the majority of other countries! We felt 100% safe (well, except when crossing the street in Tehran...), welcome and impressed by all the places we visited and the delicious food.

I therefore wholeheartedly recommend TAP Persia and Rasool and taking that step to visit Iran and see and experience all this for yourselves!

TAPersia was the first to notify me that tourist visas for Iran had opened again in November 2021 after a long pandemic break. When the time for my next trip had come, I got in touch with them. Whenever I had any question, they answered very promptly. Just 2 days after requesting the visa with them, I held the visa grant notice in my hand and picked the visa up at the consulate without problems.
I completely recommend their service for a stress-free travel preparation experience and am looking forward to do so again on my next trip (coming up for sure!).

This is a belated review on my visit to Iran back in April.

I was visiting a friend in Tehran but I also wanted to see other parts of the country. Initially, I contacted TAP Persia as my visa application had been refused. At that point, I thought it was the end of my plans to visit Iran, but they reassured me that they would be able to secure a visa. Just over a week later, I had my tourist visa and TAP Persia also organised a travel insurance as UK insurers would not cover travel to Iran.

At this point, I was getting close to my travel and was, as a solo traveller, unable to find a tour. Again, TAP Persia provided fast and efficient assistance tailoring an itinerary which 100% reflected my wish list of places to visit, all at a very reasonable price.

My tour covered Shiraz, Persepolis, Isfahan and Bashan and I was driven back to Tehran. TAP Persia had organised lovely accommodation and my guides were extremely knowledgeable and proud to show me around their cities. Iran and its culture blew me away. It is impossible to describe the scale of beauty of the mosques, palaces, gardens - it has to be experienced.

The greatest beauty of Iran, however, is its people. I felt safe and so well looked after. People were curious about where I was from, but in a courteous, respectful manner and everyone was so incredibly kind and hospitable.

Big shout out to my brilliant guides Moji, Amin and Ebrahim - engaging, knowledgeable and oh so patient with me wanting to stop to take a million photos around every corner.

My trip far exceeded my already high expectations. I saw so much during my 8 day trip and I have only scratched the surface of this beautiful country. I am 100% going back, next time with friends. I can't recommend TAP Persia and a visit to Iran enough!

TAP Persia has lived up to their promise and arranged my visa on short notice (in a week). In case of my application, they were very responsive on Whatsapp, less so on email - just so you know what's the best way to get in touch with them if you need to clarify something quickly.

The information I received from TAP Persia about the PCR test requirement was not entirely accurate. When I was awaiting the visa approval, Iranian authorities announced that PCR tests were no longer required for travelers, but TAP Persia still advised me to do the test "just in case". It was an extra cost that I could have avoided, as indeed PCR tests were no longer required and it had been made official to the travel agents, according to the information I had from another source.

So, one star less because of one unanswered question in my email, which I thought was important, and the ambiguity around the PCR test information. If it were possible I would give them 4.5/5, not 4/5, but still my impression is very good.

Overall, I recommend TAP Persia and will use it again.

I can't recommend enough Tap Persia.
I visited Iran for 18 days in Oct 2022 with all the protests happening across the country. Not even for a second I felt unsafe and this is thanks to Tap Persia. They organised my visa, debit card, sim card and most importantly my mobile internet connection, they set up a VPN for me and thanks to this I could navigate the whole country by myself as I had internet to guide me. They have also organised all the transfers, tours and accommodations for me. All these services had a very cheap price compared to any European destination or North American. Rasool, Ebrahim and the whole team went above and beyond to help me any problem I had any time of the day. Which it could be me running out of money so I would ask them to do a bank transfer, or a translation
Despite the protests happening, I felt I was being treated like a king since I was the only few foreign guests staying in hotels I stayed in.
People are INCREDIBLY friendly, and so generous and hospitable. I have travelled to over 35 countries and Iran is by far my favourite destination.
I can't wait to go back to Iran after the revolution and see all the lovely friends I made!

Tap persia we really appreciate your efforts in making our 14 day trip really smooth and enjoyable .

Rasool has been a great help from the time we applied the visa authorisation code we didn't expect how quick it would be ready to all the bookings and he was so patient with our 100+ questions on payment, rooms , itenary changes 😀 and late calls . At first we were afraid to take a risk with tap persia being their first clients from East Africa (Tanzania) 😀 but we sensed a warm friendship from Rasool that convinced us to proceed !

We loved the itenary enjoyed visiting 6 cities tehran, mashad, qom, esfahan, kish island and shiraz .

All their local guides were well experienced on tours and spoke English well the transfer were all very comfortable and they were very patient with us as we took many rests in between due to the tiring hot sun 🌞

We also met the team in person in esfahan they received us with smiles and good hospitality , rasool gave a complementary dinner to us 👌🏼all in all it was a great experience definitely recommend Tap Persia ❣️

I had a fantastic experience using TAP Persia to organise a trip to Iran. They made organising a visa so simple and they offer many additional services like local travel cards, SIM cards and travel insurance. Rasool was a brilliant point of contact with TAP Persia who took the time to discuss what we wanted from our trip before starting to plan. Everything ran smoothly but despite this Rasool would frequently check in with us to make sure everything was going to plan. The local guides organised by TAP Persia were perfect.

Alireza was extremely knowledgeable about the attractions in Kashan. His tour was both entertaining and and informative. We learned a lot about Persian gardens and mosques that was useful for our entire tour. When we were trying to organise food he went above and beyond and picked up the food for us and brought it to our hotel.

Ebrahim was a efficient guide and driver we had no troubles getting between the cities and to and from the desert. He was flexible and organised our desert trip well.

Mohammad was friendly and knowledgable about Yazd, Persepolis and the Necropolis. His tour of the old town was our highlight of Yazd.

Sanaz was very kind and we enjoyed our tour of Shiraz. When I told her that I would be surprising my partner with a proposal she was totally on board and did everything she could to make it as special as possible. She suggested locations, organised a driver and bought flowers and balloons for the occasion. She even filmed the moment I proposed and we couldn’t be happier how it all worked out.

Maryam provided a very good tour of Esfahan and suggested many good souvenir shops to visit. She was very knowledgable and had a very fun and relaxed personality. We especially like the shop she suggested for hand printed table clothes which were very highly quality.

We were happy with all the guides we had and would recommend them to any other tourists who visit Iran.

I needed travel insurance to Iran and TAP Persia helped me to get in in 30 min.
the service is relay fast. communication via Whatsapp was really and fast and i have received everything i needed in less than 30 min.
Well the price is a bit higher than in other websites however I surly could trust TAP Persia and I know that behind this price I will get something I need as others will promise travel insurance within 3 days and I needed urgent.
I also recommend their The Ultimate Iran Travel Guide 2022 so far the best.
thank you TAP Persia for your efforts to show Iran from the right angle.
personally I will come back to buy trip to Shiraz and Persepolis.
