Baku is a beautiful city with gorgeous buildings and architecture, steeped in history. My guide, Nazaket, was a fantastic guide! I wold recommend her, and their company, for anyone visiting Azerbaijan.
Sabina, my tour guide, was amazing. The day was cold and the president of Croatia visited so some things and streets were closed, but that was completely out of anyone's control. So, besides that, to see the city, hear the stories and have a friendly guide who's English was impeccable was wonderful!
My guide was Jamil, and I can't recommend him highly enough -- we met up exactly as I was instructed, very easy to find and very friendly right off the bat. I had a wonderful tour through the old and the new of Baku, he interspersed personal stories with the many interesting historical and cultural facts of the city, and introduced me to authentic, affordable, and excellent Azerbaijani food when it was time for lunch. Definitely take this tour if you're looking for an easy, walkable introduction to this fascinating place.
This was a great way to get an introduction to the city. The guide was wonderful. In addition to being knowledgeable and friendly, he also helped me get a metro card and change money at a bank. I would definitely recommend this tour for first time visitors to Baku.
