    However, there are a few things to note - you will have to pay a small tip to the driver of the 4x4 who takes you to the Mud Volcanoes, and there is no hotel pick-up or drop off.

    The tour offered what it promised and the guide, Mahabbat, was super friendly. you get to see the highlights of Baku that you can’t walk to.
    A great day sounds Baku

    This was a great way to spend our last day. The guide and driver we're great and flexible when we needed to go to the airport instead of back to our hotel. I would recommend then.
    Major Sites in Half a Day!

    The tour began at around 10 am. It was supposed to start at 9 am but there was traffic and a few passengers were delayed by 45 minutes. However, once we got going, the tour was actually quite fun and exciting. The whole trip roughly took 7 hours (incl. the lunch break). Most of the major sites outside the Baku City Centre were visited - the Gobustan Park, Mud Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Fire Mountain. Apart from this, the tour also takes you to the Bibiheybat mosque and the oil fields. The best part of the journey was that I did not have to pay anything for the entrance to these sites as it is all included. However, there are a few things to note - you will have to pay a small tip to the driver of the 4x4 who takes you to the Mud Volcanoes, and there is no hotel pick-up or drop off. The meeting point is the Double Gates (Gosha Gala Gapisi). We also stopped for lunch near the Fire Temple. The lunch was a buffet, and decent. I'd recommend sticking to the pilaf, which was actually quite nice. The tour guide, Azhar, was also great fun and very informative about the sites we visited. He explained everything quite clearly and gave us sufficient time to take pictures. Clearly a trip I wouldn't mind doing again!
    Great inclusive tour with funny guide

    Full day tour in the main attractions of Baku and surroundings. As a frequent traveller, I was pleasantly surprised with the content (mud volcanoes, fire mountain, fire temple, mosque, etc.) and incredible food we were served for lunch.
