Good
James_J, Nov 2022
Our tour guide was knowledgeable but talks so fast and just explaining in 2 minutes and then give you 15 mins to take pictures and go. I hope he will explain slowly since his mumbles sometimes so we cannot hear the explanation clearly.
Gobustan, Fire temple and Burning mountain tour at Baku
Rajesh_S, Oct 2022
A must do tour when in Baku. Highlights the geological diversity of the surrounding region. Highly recommended.
Good tour
S_L, Oct 2022
Good tour. Our guide is good and gave us all information we need to know. The car is also in good condition. We started late so we had very late lunch however TES gave us a night tour as compensation.
Great tour and great guide
Romeo_T, Oct 2022
Usal, our tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. He’s soft spoken and calm. The tour was enriching and informative. The Sara Hadid building was amazing.
Very Interesting tour but very uncomfortable!
Princinella_A, Aug 2022
I do recommend this tour and so lucky to have Mr. Samir as our tour guide. He is very knowledgeable of history of the world and enjoyed listening to him. All the places we visited are very interesting. The only thing that’s bad is the transportation since it’s old and air condition was not working well at all. That’s everyone’s main complain. I wanted to book another tour with this company but it was very uncomfortable especially for full day tour.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank You very much, for taking your time to review us. Unfortunately, this time we have to agree that yes, the airconditioning system of the car was not enough in your tour. The reason of it was that if Mercedes Sprinter car is fully booked, and if the weather is +38C degrees, the AC may not cool properly. To not have the same situation again, we split guests to smaller groups. The weather in Gabala or in Guba is cooler than Baku, so You should book another tour. In any case, would be better for You to let us know your concern earlier, and we would be more helpful than apologizing here. Best wishes, TES Tour team
Nice Day Trip outside of Baku
Jonathan_O, Jul 2022
Very interesting trip taking in some of the major attractions outside of Baku. Guide was very knowledgeable about the history and traditions associated with each of the locations visited. Plenty of time allowed in each place, no rushing. Air-conditioned transportation which was very welcome considering the heat on the day of the trip.
Really interesting tour...
Richard_R, Jun 2022
Really interesting tour lead by Samir, an unbelievable historian, proud citizen, hard working, funny man! His personal history is really remarkable, and he knows so much about so many things. What an asset to have Samir as a tour guide for this company. A long day, but Samir made it incredibly enjoyable. A true gentleman, history buff, and comedian!!! Thank you, The Ryans
Baku Day Trip

I am a seasoned traveler so I may have higher expectations than some other people. However, seasoned or not, I took a new traveler with me and both of us thought the tour was a bust/waste of time and money. The first stop was for a bathroom break and refreshments. The place was a total dump. Bathroom was nothing short of nasty. Much nicer and cleaner places were near by. The rock wall with carvings was a non-event. Had to use your imagination to even come close to getting anything from this. The mud volcanoes was not any better. Nothing but a little mud bubbling out of the surface. Don't eat before going as the road was a long bumpy pothole. Getting sick is a real possibility. Lunch was in a "local" type place. The food was cold and did not have much taste. Price was cheap and you got what you paid for. The location was near the Ateshgah Temple which would have been OK if you could understand the tour guide. Yanardag Fire Mountain was another non event. Due to excess gas coming out of the ground, they set the gas on fire so you basically had some flames coming from the soil. Not real exciting. The tour was pretty cheap and lasted most of the day but I felt it was a day wasted. Tour guide was very nice but needs to speak much slower and a tour guide who speaks English better would have helped. Do not recommend this tour.

Beautiful experience
MrHyde77, Oct 2019
Everything was perfect, I booked the day before and everything was perfect. They picked me up from the hotel, the bus was clean and modern. The guide was amazing and prepared. The tour was interested, some places were very amazing. I suggest that tour.
A day trip with a lot to offer
Orsolya_Z, Oct 2019
I liked Gobustan. They could use boards to make it easier to spot artwork on uneven rocks. The mud volcanos are small in real life, and make a funny bubbly sound. We had lunch quite late, but we stopped at a supermarket on the road before. Lunch was in an all you can eat local food place. Good value for money. The fire temple has descriptions on the religion. And the burning gas looks incredible. Heydar Aliyev Center is a work of Zaha Hadid, really impressive. All in all its a good trip to see attractions out of the city.
Wonderful tour
Eman_M, Oct 2019
Day trip Baku, was wonderful, Mr. Yaqoub was professional, funny and knowledgeable. Recommend the company and operator.
Amazing day in baku
Lama_K, Aug 2019
We had a wonderful time learning about the history of azarbaijan. Our tour guide elcam made the tour experience even more lovely. A must
Very interesting day in Baku surroundings
Elina_A, May 2019
The trip was really nice as we got out of the city and could see the surroundings and the small villages on the way. The natural phenomens with mud volcanoes and fire mountains. Gobustans history is also very interesting. Our guide Huseyn spoke really good English and explained everything in a way so that we still remember most of it. He also explained other things related to the lifestyle, culture, etc...
Do not use this tour company
Frederick_B, May 2019
Tour vehicle air conditioning not working. Flies in the vehicle. Tour guide moved too fast. gave explanation before half the group caught up to him. lunch was horrible . took us to a cafeteria. All food was cold and the bathrooms smelled terrible. The long trip to the mud volcanos was ridiculous. Over unpaved dirt roads with continuous potholes. Vehicle constantly rocking back and forth. Fire mountain was a joke. A few small fires at the base of a hill. Waste of time. Do not take this tour
A real bargain and diverse but..
Ann v, Apr 2019
The itinerary was ambitious and the price was very good. The lunch was a great buffet of traditional offerings. My only regret is the guide spoke a broken English and very quickly, so I missed too much. In town, the driver announced he was finished, it was cold and I didn't know the way to walk to my hotel.
