Excellent trip
Sep 2021 • Family
This was our second experience with Baku City Tours, following directly on Gobustan& Absheron tour. As with this tour, we are delighted to give Mr Arif an "excellent" rating on this tour. From initial contact, to coordination by the tour organizers, the excellent knowledge and wonderful humor of our guide,and the selection of tour sites, the trip was organized and run smoothly and with the interests and comfort of the participants always kept in mind. They are by far the best tour operator we have traveled with. Thanks a lot🌸

Not to be missed.
That tour was very nice starting with the car allocated very clean and air conditioned . Mr Arif our guide should be top rated for his comprehensive knowledge of his country Azerbaijan and its capital Baku . The tour of the old city was a pleasure then the modern Baku which impressed us . We learnt a lot of the present and the past history from Arif.

Short and practical tour
Jan 2020
he tour was about 4 hours. the guide was a very social, and a well educated person. he took me to places that i asked, and that were not included in the tour. in a very short time, you get to see the most popular sites in Baku. it includes a walk at the old city of Baku and museums. highly recomended to people that have a very short time in Baku.

Night tour was good!
Oct 2019
The tour was well obviously well planned researched. Arif went out of his way to ensure I was well looked after and explained the history of Baku in the simplest way but was very informative. Even though he was over 10 minutes late arriving at the start point!

I would recommend this tour specially Arif, who made my evening a memorable one. Communication beforehand was good as well to make sure we met at the correct meeting point,

A small note if I can - I felt a little rushed taking photos - and as I was the only one on the tour - it was a bit annoying having to seemingly "ask for permission" to take a picture as Arif was always in front of me indicating to move one to the next place - and i am pretty sure i was not being a slow coach - in fact the tour finished before the advertised time!. The only negative. Otherwise good.
