About the tour

Arg-e Bam is an ancient walled adobe town. Inside the walls, there are buildings made from sunbaked mud bricks and defense by over 12 meter high walls and watchtowers. Legends say the citadel was built to protect a huge silkworm which brought prosperity for locals. Suntanned citadel has witnessed thousands of years of history and the origin of Bam can be traced back to the Achaemenid period or even before (6th to 4th centuries BC). Its Cultural Landscape represents an outstanding example of an ancient fortified settlement that developed around the Iranian central plateau and is an exceptional testimony to the development of a trading settlement in the desert environment of Central Iran.

Leila is so very knowledgeable and sweet! I will surely book another tour with her. I was fascinated by this Adobe Fortress, It has its own kind of beauty plus it is a place that is hard to visit as an irl tourist, as the insurance companies don't cover it.

Leila did such a great job with the tour. She got in l, climbed about, informed the guests with interesting tidbits, answered questions & left us all want more. So, if you are interested in history, Leila is a great guide. Plus, she sets up great scenery for postcards.

Leila is a superb, knowledgable and welcoming guide. She traveled nearly 11 hours round-trip to provide Heygo guests a unique opportunity to view Arg-e Bam (a UNESCO World Heritage Site preserving the largest adobe structure in the world). Due to the location, few tourists have the opportunity to view this archeological gem from the ~5th century BCE. Immense gratitude to Leila. Tashakkor Mikonam.
