Tours Reviews

    I had a very enjoyable tour with Nariman. He brought me about the Old City of Baku, to see the main highlights, including the Maiden Tower. He was knowledgable about the history of Baku, in in particular on the Soviet era. It was also very refreshing to have a young guide, who could handle my questions on modern life in Baku and also provide recommendations to good restaurants. Would definitely recommend this tour to my friends!

  • "A great tour with a very well prepared guide"
    Our guide Sabine was very kind, helpful, and well prepared. She showed us the most popular places and also hidden courts of the old city of Baku. She shared a lot of information, interesting data data and stories woth us, and could answer all of our qouestions. On the top of that, she could recomend us more destinations (e. j. local restaurants) in the city and in the surrounding area.

  • "Отличная прогулка"
    Ходили на экскурсию 2 сентября и остались очень довольны. Пусть информации получили не слишком много, но зато зато посмотрели места, куда бы точно не дошли пешком. Экскурсовод был любезен и рассказывал на двух языках по очереди: не немецком и русском. Это было очень приятно! Гид отвечал на все наши вопросы по городу и достопримечательностям, темп прогулки удобный, а места для маршрута выбраны интересные. Ни разу не пожалели, что сходили! Спасибо!
