About the tour

Just next to Persepolis, there is a mountain with flat rocky texture known as the Necropolis (Naqsch-e Rostam). As you walk there, large crosses carved on rocky surface attracts your attention. 4 huge cross shape tombs, all with carvings and entrance to the burial chamber, belong to four kings of Persian empire. Although it is not possible to enter any of the tombs as they are very high and hard to reach, visiting this place is exciting.

Lots of information from a wonderful tour guide. She responded to questions well and I learnt so much about the place, the people who built it and about Iranian people. Well done Farzaneh. Will definitely look out for more tours with you.

What I saw of this tour was very good but unfortunately poor Farzaneh had to deal with extreme heat and her equipment was failing her. I was really disappointed to leave the tour early but the video/audio quality was such that I couldn't carry on. This was not a reflection on Farzaneh. I shall rebook this tour and hopefully we'll have better luck. Well done Farzaneh for carrying on.

She was very good under adverse temperature. Maybe A large umbrella could provide shade rather than hat? I enjoyed what we saw.

Farzanah worked in the extreme heat to bring us an excellent tour. She is very knowledgeable and maintains a good pace during the tour, with time to look and take postcards.
