There are plenty of taxis in Isfahan and they are supplemented by casual suppliers, private individuals who will offer a taxi service. You need to know the general direction in which you're going and then you shout it out at any passing taxi. If they've got room for you and they are already taking at least one of their existing passengers in the same general direction, they'll stop and take you there. Service taxis, which you have to yourself, are generally more expensive and will generally only be available from the hotels. If you're planning to travel round the sites it is probably worth asking the hotel or an Isfahani friend to book a car by the hour. Don't try to do it yourself as you will be greatly overcharged.
Here, we've simplified the process, just click on any of the highlighted destinations and you'll be there as fast as your network can take you.

In April 1999 some regulation on charges appeared to have been introduced. There is a minimum charge of 5000 rials (=500 tomams = ~£0.41) after which there is a charge of 10,000 rials (= 1000 tomams = ~£0.83) per hour. (Rates given may not be available through a travel agency or bank and are based on personal experience.)
