We were on the Shamakhi-Lahij and winery tour with guide Hussain from Baku Heritage tours. We had a really great time on this tour, despite the bus being late due to traffic which is a common theme in Baku as well as the poor weather on the day. Hussain provided great explanations about the lovely town of Lahij as well as some interesting stories about life in Azerbeijan. Our lunch in a small shop in Lahij was delicious, and we also were able to see local craftsmen at work which was fascinating. Finally, on the winery tour in Shamakhi we learnt about the processes used to make wine, as well as wine / cheese pairings. A really great tour to go on if you want to experience local culture as well as sample some fine wines.

I liked the dynamism of the tour and the various tastings, I would definitely improve the waiting times during lunch at the "L'Amphora" restaurant given that we had to wait for lunch for over 1 hour. congratulations to the guide Ronnie who managed to manage the simultaneous translation in two languages (English, Russian)

We did not visit any mausoleum or burial place or the Suspension bridge mentioned in the description. We only went to Shemakhi and Lahij which was okay as those were the key highlights for me, but the description of the tour should be updated.
