We had a standard all-day tour where we visited Persepolis - Nagshe Rostam - Pasargade. This has been the best ruin trip i have ever done! Incredible how Cyrus' tomb has stayed intact after so many years and the entire town around it being destroyed....More

The benevolent king of the world, is worth the trip to continue from Persepolis just to visit Tomb of Cyrus.

Cyrus the great as the pioneer of worldpeace is worth to respect. His tomb is the best place to show this respect toward him. Also a place to take a spiritual energy by its simple, outstanding architecture.

Cyrus the great tomb is there. Pasargad was a big city in its time. There is a building which is like Kabe Zartusht in Naqsh-e Rustam. Pasargad's palaces are not big like Persepolis but they carry a history with them.

we had an individual tour with own car, but if not of course the taxi is the best, nearly the only way to come there. just fix the price in advance.
