We had unexpected business trip to Baku, I wanted to make sure to see all the major city highlights.

Baku City Tours came up with a quick internet search as being extremely well-reviewed and affordable priced. I decided to go with an existing company, given the short notice, to prevent any last-minute cancellations or delayed scheduling. Within minutes I made online booking through their website.

A great young man named Arif picked us up at our hotel. Extremely friendly, skilful, and versatile. He was a pleasure hanging out with for 7 hours (and would have stayed longer if we hadn't had to go). His English was perfect and he put together a wonderful itinerary, tailored to our needs. He knew everything else about Baku

I selected this tour because I had a limited amount of time in Azerbaijan and wanted to visit both Gobustan and the Absheron Peninsula in one day. All of the other tours I found had you visiting either one or the other or were private tours so I was happy to find this group tour offered by Baku City Tours! This is a great tour if you're wanting to maximize your time in Azerbaijan in order to see several of the nearby sights in one day. I particularly liked the ride in the Lada, an old Russian car, out to see the mud volcanoes! The buffet lunch was also quite good as we got to try many local dishes. The pick up in the morning was a bit confusing as many tour companies pick up from the same spot near the gates of the Old Town in the morning. Overall, a good tour and a good way to see a lot of Azerbaijan in a short amount of time!

An amazing experience and a must-do tour in my opinion! Mud volcanoes & the eternal burning fires are some of the top highlights of Azerbaijan.

The tour was well-organized. The tour guide, Ali, was great with his knowledge & made the tour interesting. The driver was also kind & safe with how he handled the roads.

Baku City Tours went above & beyond in recommending restaurants I would like & helping me plan my evenings as well.

Highly recommend!

The stops on this tour were so unique and like nothing I had seen or done before. I highly recommend anyone visiting Baku to do a day trip and see these sites as they are really worth it. Seeing the natural gas fires, mud volcanoes and real cave paintings were big highlights. The reason I gave only 3 stars is because of the guide and the lunch. The guide (sorry I can’t remember his name) just didn’t “guide” us. From the beginning, he didn’t tell us anything or explain anything about the day. We drove past multiple attractions in Baku that he was supposed to point out and he didn’t. We never knew where we were going next or how long the drives would take. He didn’t tell us that we would be driving through slippery mud for half an hour with a man who only spoke Russian and who expected a big tip. He didn’t tell us if we would be out in the cold for a long or short time. Whenever we asked questions, he only answered with weird jokes and didn’t actually answer anything. He didn’t tell us what time the lunch would be and it ended up being at 3:30 only because we started complaining about how hungry we were and it was originally going to be later! The lunch place was a buffet and had almost ran completely out of food. The food was microwaved and not very nice. Overall I highly recommend the tour for the sites visited but I would suggest finding another tour that offers the same places with a more organised guide.

Hello Dear , Thanks for your feedback, we do appreciate your honest opinion, it helps us to develop and grow! It's really hard to find a reliable partner in tourism business, who are as responsible as our company. Because of few complains about our new guide we have decided to work with new one.

Our guide Tural was very polite and accommodating. We had a really nice experience! It was cold in the month of March but the shuttle provided was really warm and comfortable, and so were the fellow travelers. The lunch buffet had a variety of options, food was a bit cold though. Would definitely recommend for a reasonable price.

It was rainy day in Baku for that reason there wasn't any groups. This company didn't canceled my trip and provided private tour without any extra payment. They pick up from mu hotel and we had 40 minutes drive to reach Gobustan National Park. Lunch was delicious at buffet type restaurant with various traditional foods. I had great day with my guide Turqay. Thanks Arif who is tour manager for this great organization.

We’ve been picked up in the early morning in the hotel and immersed into Azerbaijani fairytale. Ancient caves, telling you how people lived here thousand years ago, Fire temple, where you can cognize worship they had here, mysterious burning mount and many more. Guys guided us through all of this were super friendly and sharing every tiny detail you can’t miss. Thank you and hopefully we’ll see you again!

What an incredible day in Land of Fire. This was our first-day tour in Baku and we met Arif who was a wealth of knowledge and made it all fun, not like a boring history class. We enjoyed the day and highly recommend this tour.

I Definitely recommend this day trip from Baku!
