Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide and group at the exit to the Sahil metro station in Baku at 12 p.m. on the day of your tour. Head for the day's first stop, the ancient Zoroastrian temple of Ateshgah, located about 18 miles from the Baku city center, in the suburb of Surakhany. As you travel, learn about the temple and its unique burning natural gas outlets. Explore the temple to learn about the fire religion and its history in the Caucasus. 

Move on to Yanar Dag, the most famous 'eternal flame' in Azerbaijan; it was lit in the 1950s by a shepherd on the side of the hill. It is one of the few fire mountains that exist today the world over. 

After your 3-hour tour, return to your original departure point for drop-off.

It is located approximately 30 km from the center of Baku in the suburb of Surakhany. You will learn a lot about the temple from your guide, particularly, more about the history of creation of such a temple in Baku and unique natural phenomenon of burning natural gas outlets.

Zoroastrian Highlights

The guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and really keen to showcase the best of Azerbaijan. The temple complex was set out in a way that demonstrated aspects of Zoroastrianism and the fire mountain was incredible for its uniqueness. The driver was good and also highlighted points of interest (e.g. the car rally and celebrations for VE Day).

This tour is an absolute waste of money and it lasts 1hr 30 minutes maximum. Save you money and get a taxi driver to take you there and wait for you. This is the first time that i have ever had anything negative to say about tours on Viator.

I was very lucky to have Aydan as my tourguide and she really went out of her way to make this day as beautiful as it was. She picked me up at my hotel in the morning and both Ateshgah and Yanar Dag were very interesting places. Aydan has a lot of knowledge about these places and about Azerbeidzjan in general. Very intelligent, sweet girl and speaks good English. The driver was friendly, but didn't speak any English. At the end of the day he wasn't in a good mood anymore and when I tipped him he was complaining it wasn't enough and I felt very uncomfortable.. gave him way too much money. A guide like Aydan deserves a much nicer driver to work with. Thank you for everything Aydan. If I ever visit Baku again.. I will def contact you.

This is a great half day tour to explore the past history of Azerbaijan culture. The day started on time as scheduled and our tour guide though she was very young but full of knowledge for the local custom, culture and any question we asked her. The Fire Temple of Ateshgah itself has been renovated and rebuilt from the original one and the whole complex is very clean and tidy. There is a plush restaurant on site that serve the delicious Azeri cuisine.
