Nature meets history meets modernity
Pallavi_V, Jan 2023
What a great trip. I signed up for a group tour as a solo female traveller and I had a great experience! Elmar was a wonderful guide. He showed us all the wonderful rock drawings of Qobustan, the different chambers of Atesh Gah, walked us around the Mud Volcanoes, and let us explore Yanar Dag and Heydar Aliyev Centre. We got a great chance to see both the historical and modern aspects that Azerbaijan is famous for. Elmar himself knew a lot about the culture, society, and history and answered a lot of our curious questions — he also showed genuine deep interest in our own cultures and where we came from. Tons of learning and conversation even during the rides to these places!
Great way to see top sights
ConstanseMjeldheim_B, Dec 2022
Great way of seeing top sights in a day. Highlights were the mud volcanoes and rock carvings. Easy to book and good value for money
Great tour
Ross_F, Dec 2022
Great guide and well organised tour. Would recommend to anyone visiting Baku! I really liked the natural fire.
Not well organised overall (don’t recommend)
Zishuo_W, Dec 2022
The sites were not interesting nor worth visiting. The scheduled departure time was 9am, however, we didn’t make a move until 10:30 am which was quite a delay. In addition, no lunch was available until 2 pm… I was (and people in the group were) hungry, so I decided to end up eating something myself. By the way the seats of the shuttle were EXTREMELY uncomfortable.. which was like a torture. Overall, the guide was friendly, but the tour itself really doesn’t worth the time and money invested.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you Dear Zishuo for taking your time and giving your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you didn't satisfy with our experience. Delay on the departure time of the tours is possible sometimes as a day before the experience we contact you and mentioned that the tour will start 1 hour later than the original plan due to the high traffic in the morning. The bus was 18 seats, a Mercedes Vito Van which is operating for our tours every day and never had a complaint. We are looking forward to seeing you again and compensating you with other tours for free As we don't want any of our customers to leave our country with a negative experience.

Great intimate tour
Marinus_D, Oct 2022
Had a great time with Taleh. He is very knowledgeable about everything he showed us + more. Definitely recommended.
Great day out of Baku
ole_s, Oct 2022
The group was small, we were 3 people so almost felt like a private tour. The tour was led by Taleh, a nice and we'll educated young man. The sights, the nature around it and Talehs knowledge about every place made it even more interesting.
Had a good day
Anoop_B, Jul 2022
It was tour worth taking. Our guide (Zak) know the history of all the places we visited very well. He made it a very good experience.
A fun, easy day trip
Ezrah_C, Jul 2022
Definitely worth seeing. Knowledgeable guide and interesting locations. Rock carvings and mud volcanoes were the best part.
Lovely Group & Beautiful Sites!
Fatima_F, Jun 2022
The tour of the Ice Age carvings was very interesting and the landscape surrounding the mud mountains was beautiful! The tour guide Samir gave us some very interesting facts about Zoroastrianism and the history of Azerbaijan on our way to the Temple. He was also very accommodating. He arranged transport for a group of us from the last destination of the tour to make it to the F1 qualifiers in time. I even left my sweater in the bus from the rush and he had it delivered to my hotel in the evening. Excellent service!
Great tour!
Stephanie_B, May 2022
The mud volcanoes and prehistoric carvings were great to see! Also, we were very appreciative that the tour driver returned my daughter’s jacket to our hotel after we accidentally left it in the van. Thank you!
Great tour experience!
Patrick_M, Apr 2022

Fantastic tour with a friendly, enthusiastic guide!
Brigitte_S, Jan 2020
During this tour you will go to many special sights of Azerbaijan. You get plenty of time to look around and take photos everywhere. Our fantastic guide was enthusiastic and spoke English well and arranged everything well. We also had a very good driver. The ride in the Lada to the Modder Vulcans was unforgettable. Really amazing! The lunch was very good, there was a buffet with delicious food. This trip is highly recommended!
Great guide, unique experiences
Linda_A, Dec 2019
This tour of Azerbaijan really provided a sense for the history of this country as “the land of fire.” The sites were unlike any others I’ve seen, the traditional lunch was great, and the guide ‘Maha’ (nickname) was gracious, friendly and informative. Our driver was also exceptionally professional. We had a wonderful tour!

Relaxt tour to the landmarks of Azerbaijan
Anselmus, Apr 2019
A pleasant tour to the mud volcanoes and the burning gas fields with a nice lunch at a local restaurant. We enjoyed the private tour very much. Guide and driver were very relaxed and explained us the various spots.
Qobustan nationaal park...
Eddie_R, Dec 2022
Qobustan nationaal park met de rotstekeningen en moddervulkanen is de uitstap waard ! Burning mountain en vuurtempel ook. Late lunch.
Angenehmer Tagestrip
Dennis_S, Mar 2020
An allen Stationen der Tour hatte man ausreichend Zeit, diese zu besichtigen. Dank des kompetenten Guides herrschte durchgehend eine angenehme Atmosphäre. Die Abholung vom Hotel klappte problemlos und war pünktlich. Das Mittagessen bietet für jeden Geschmack etwas, da dieses individuell zusammengestellt werden kann.
