    "Delicious and informative"
    I would recomend this tour to anyone interested in the cuisines and cultures of Azerbaijan. Our guide Mehin was very knowledgeable and talked us through each course so that we were not just well fed fed but given a series of History lessons as well! I would reccomend you do this tour early on in your visit to Baku as you will be given a good idea of where to find everything of interest around the old town (icherisher) and the best places to eat as well. The local foods are delicious and the customs that accompany them are fascinating. I would thoroughly reccomend this tour to anyone.
