Discover the two stately homes of the Qajar and the Pahlavi Dynasties when you take our fascinating guided tour of the Sadabad and Niavaran Palaces. These magnificent buildings are a testimony to the way of life of the monarchy before the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
Sadabad and Niavaran Palaces Tour
After collecting you from your hotel in Tehran early in the morning, we will head to the historic places which were the residences of the last Shah monarch of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlevi.
Our first stop is the Sadabad Palace. It currently houses several museums but was originally the summer residence of Sha Pahlevi and his wife Farah Diba. The legacy of its previous life is still evident in the elegance of the grounds, full of forests, mansion houses, and lavish rooms.
We will learn all about the palace's history up until it was abandoned following the expulsion of the Shah during the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
We continue our guided tour at the Palace of Niavaran, the permanent home of the Shah. Just like Sadabad palace, this complex houses a series of museums. It also includes art galleries and even a library.
This palace was the last refuge of the Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi before he fled the country. We will explore the long corridors, admiring the clothes and items that the family left behind before abandoning Iran.
We will return to the hotels in Tehran around 4:30 pm.
All of our providers comply with local legislation and applicable health recommendations regarding protective material and safety to help avoid the spread of Covid-19.
