By itself, Shiraz is one of the most important highlights of Iran which is never missed by tourists visiting the country. Apart from the atmosphere and kind, lovely people, the ancient and historical sites mainly remaining from the Achaemenid and Sassanid times are of the highest value for the visitors of this splendid city and its suburbs. During this one-day tour to the outskirts of Shiraz, we will visit Persepolis, Necropolis of Naghsh-e Rustam and Pasargadae, the ruins of the ancient greatest empire of the ancient world.

Driving to a World UNESCO Heritage Site of Pasargadae, we will pay a visit to the tomb of Cyrus the Great and also see the remains of the royal gardens and palaces of the Achaemenid dynasty.

Moving on and driving back towards Shiraz we will stop at another amazing UNESCO Heritage Site of Persepolis. Known as Takht-e Jamshid among Iranians, Persepolis used to be the ceremonial capital of the Persian Empire when Darius was ruling the country and located at a distance of about 60 km from the current city of Shiraz. There’s a lot to explore and we will spend quite a good time here after having our lunch.

After you get a deep understanding of the ancient Persian culture and history, we will move to the rock reliefs of Naghsh-e Rustam located a short distance from the glorious Persepolis. There are four tombs of great kings carved into the rock faces at a high distance from the ground.

Altogether, the tour is a great opportunity to explore the Achaemenid remains of the outskirts of Shiraz with good convenience by the accompany of a knowledgeable local guide.

Tour duration is from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.


  • Deep exploration of the ancient time remains of Persepolis
  • Visiting the glorious necropolis of Naqsh-e Rostam
  • Pasargadae

Persepolis tour

We had a great time on the tour and learned a great deal with our guide. He was knowledgeable and versed on the history of the city. My favorite part was his secret spot he took us...ask him to see all the 4 elements of the flag and you won't be disappointed with the photos. Thanks for showing us around!

The great Magic

we were traveled to Iran in November 2017 and Shiraz was the second destination of our trip, although the weather was raining and a little cold but was so pleasant for the excursion. we started early in the morning and our guide picked up us from the hotel, first place was Persepolis, fantastic and wonderful monument, we stopped for 2 hours then had to visit Necropolis and Pasargadae as a final destination. It was a great opportunity through our journey to visit historical places.
