Esfahan Tours

Beyond half of the world

Known by travelers as “Half of the World”, Esfahan is so much more than bridges and blue domes mosques. On our 4 hour walking tour, we’ll go beyond the touristy shops and vendors of Naqsh-e Jahan square and take you on a food exploration of Esfahan. We’ll start with a late breakfast, guide you through the spice bazaar, show you how Esfahanis made various seed oils in the good old days, make stops to sample local delicacies, pastries and sherbets and end the tour with a delightful lunch that serves all of the best local dishes. Along the tour, your guide will educate you about Esfahan’s food culture and the influence of Islamic medicine on the local cuisine while exploring some of the most historic parts of the city. 

Our Beyond half of the world tour is a great way to understand and sample Esfahani cuisine in a short time.
