Overall rating

4.6
(92 reviews)

The day trip to the attractions was very interesting. The guide was great, we had a van which took us from one place to another. The van was very comfortable with air conditioning. The only thing what I would change is the restaurant. Even though it was a tour for foreigners ( english tour) the took us to a place where no one spoke English. The food was avarage quality, the servers were rude and it was a bit overpriced. All together the tour was great and it was definitely worth it.

A very good guide, speaking Turkish and Spanish, although it is true that the Spanish could be a little rusty, he made an effort to make himself understood and give us the necessary information. Furthermore, he is always attentive to us and what we might need, very friendly and empathetic, which has made us enjoy the entire tour (which in other circumstances could be very long)

This tour was exactly what I wanted to see in Baku. It was a long day but we saw a lot of sites that day. I especially like the Gobustan Rock Art and the Fire Temple. The buffet was good with a lot of selections. I would recommend this tour if these are the things you want to see in Baku.

We had a very nice trip! The day was packed with interesting activities & we had a very nice and professional guide. We would definitely recommend this trip to other tourists!

Thoroughly exciting, and the guide in particular was excellent
