Yazd daily tour

Yazd, located between the Dasht-e Kavir and the Dasht-e Lut deserts, is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is known for the wind towers, or badgirs, built on its houses and for the beautiful weavings created by its craftspeople. Yazd is also the original home of the Zoroastrian religion. Zoroastrians believe in an all-powerful god called Ahura Mazda. Ahura Mazda is represented by fire; which Zoroastrians believe he created. A holy fire enclosed in the Zoroastrian temple in Yazd is believed to have burned continuously since 470 B.C. It is tended by temple priests and protected from the public by glass. During our Yazd day tour, you’ll see some of the most important sites with a Yazdi local with a wide knowledge of Yazd city.

09.00 AMPick-up from hotel: We will start the Yazd day tour by visiting the Zoroastrian Fire Temple and seeing a flame that is said to have been burning for the past 1,500 years. It’s an important pilgrimage site for the faithful and here our expert guide will offer additional insight into one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions. Next, up your Yazd day tour is to visit Amir Chakhmaq Square, where you’ll see a very impressive Hussainiya – a congregation hall for Shia commemoration ceremonies. With three tiers of recessed alcoves, all perfectly proportioned, its façade is one of the city’s most photographed landmarks. Then visit the Friday Mosque, built-in 1324, where you can gaze upon the tallest minarets in the country.
01.30 PMLunch at a city restaurant: Today you’ll enjoy lunch during your Yazd day tour at a local restaurant we’ve selected for its delicious Persian cuisine and friendly ambiance. The Iranian people are gregarious by nature and some of your fellow diners, once they hear you speaking English, may ask where you’re from!
02.30 PMYazd day tour and sightseeing: At Zendan-e Eskandar, you’ll find an ancient domed structure with a deep, circular brick-lined pit that resembles a dungeon. According to legend, the complex was built by Alexander the Great to hold prisoners during his conquest of Persia. Others believe it was constructed by the Persians to hold Alexander himself. Among the many other historic sites to be seen in Yazd are beautiful old homes and the Dowlat Abad Garden. Standing by the garden’s long reflecting pool, you’ll be shaded by ancient cypress trees. Ahead of you is an 18th-century hexagonal pavilion with a beautiful stained glass window and a graceful wind tower – the tallest in Iran. All around are flowering fruit trees and other ornamental plants and trees.
