First time in Baku
I booked a last minute trip to Baku and didn't have a set plan. I booked this walking tour to get some history and information about a city I knew little about. My online booking was confirmed quickly. I met Gani at the appointed time and spent the next 2.5 hours learning so much information about Baku and Azerbaijan. Gani is very knowledgeable and passionate and enthusiastic. He was able to answer the group's questions and encouraged conversation. At the end of the tour we had tea and Gani gave us some great recommendations for local food which we tried and were completed impressed. I am happy to recommend Azerbaijan Traveller walking tours and Gani to anyone visiting Baku!

Interesting and entertaining tour of Baku
Nov 2019 • Couples
We had a great tour of Baku. We have done a lot of free walking tours as they're such a great way to find out about new cities, and we found the Baku tour particularly informative as well as entertaining. It covered a lot of history and local culture, and we got some great recommendations for places to eat and drink. Highly recommended.

Had our walking tour with Gani and he was great! I'd say one of, if not the best, free walking tour I've ever taken. Very knowledgeable and delivered the history and interesting facts with charisma and passion. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Baku!

Walking Night Tour
Sep 2019 • Friends
We did a night walking tour with Gani and his knowledge and enthusiasm were phenomenal. He wove history and culture together with the sites of the old city and the new history seamlessly. We truly enjoyed our tour which ended with him buying us a glass of Azerbaijani wine. Highly recommend him and this tour.

Free Baku Tour
Sep 2019 • Solo
The tour was good. We explored the old city of Baku and it was really fascinating. Our guide was a very knowledgeable men with an excellent English skills. However for me it was noticable that he was bias and has presented information not in the most accurate way. To be more specific, feels that he was very anti-Soviet and everything related to Russian heritage. No judgement for that, but I believe as a tour guide you should keep your nuetrality and present history from both sides. But definitely take a tour if you can

Hello CJwalker727, Thank you for your time and feedback about tour to Baku Old City. We do appreciate your review to let us know about your experience so that we have an chances to improve our services. We are sorry to hear that tour guide's commentaries were not up to your liking. We always train our tour guide to refrain to make any sensitive commentary against any nation, in particular, I reiterate, in particular when it comes to Russia and Russian people. However, you do not really specifies what part of tour guide's presentation were exactly anti-Soviet and Russian heritage or who are sides of history. Nonetheless, we are concerned that in this case you felt that tour guide's presentation was not in line with your preferences for a tour about Baku. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. Kind Regards, Gani.

Can is an amazing tour guide. So honest, so fluent in English, and very attentive and open-minded. There's so much history in Baku, and we're glad we experienced it in both of the tours. The old and the new. The one at 11am and then the one at 5pm. Have a great time in Baku!

Excellent Free Walking Tour
Aug 2019
My husband and I attended a Baku free walking tour, and it was a perfect introduction to the city. Our guide was very knowledgable about the history of the region, but also able to speak about any cultural and geopolitical topics we asked. It is 3 hours long with some walking, but we were engaged the whole time. Would recommend to anyone looking to get to know both Baku and Azerbaijan!

Always a fantastic tour
Our tour guide was exceptional here in Baku. We have never been disappointed in any walking tour we have gone on. And here in Baku was no exception. He had so much information on history, culture and personal stories... It was simply great. We learned so much and it is always fun to meet other travelers from around the globe. Thank you!

Great tutor!
Our tutor in the walk was helpful and friendly. He shares a lot of info about the places that we saw. He speaks English very well so it was super easy to understand him. At the end, we had a cup of tea at cafe with good atmosphere.
I highly recommend the walk tour.
