Fantastic walking tour
Nijat is your ultimate guide for Baku. Friendly, easy going, knowledgeable, and amazing sense of humour. The tour of the old city was relaxed and really interesting. Nijat is also great for local recommendations and is more your Baku friend than just your guide.
Baku tour with Nijat
I had a wonderful day with Nijat who was my tour guide in Baku. Nijat took me through the old town and major sightseeing destinations in Baku. He shared many useful tips and took me to local wine tasting which was fantastic. Once you plan to visit Baku Nijat is your main point of reference. Get in touch with him and experience local life of Baku.
The perfect local guide
We spent with Nijat one and a half day, a half day Baku tour and a full day trip to Qobustan, mud volcanos, Ateshgah and Mardakan castle. He was a real friend for these few days with a lot of information, fun and helpfulness.
He gave us trips to eat, where to spent the evenings, what to do in our free time too. He has a kind and enthusiastic character.
I highly recommended him for everybody who visits Azerbajdzsan.

Unique sites and excellent guide!
This tour had everything I was looking for in my short trip to Baku: access to the petroglyphs, a Lada ride to the mud volcanoes, and a visit to the fire temple.

Nijat is a superb tour guide who will go great lengths to ensure that his guests leave with good memories of their trip to Azerbaijan. I’ve taken a lot of tours in a lot of places, but this one truly stood out because of Nijat - his guide style is really engaging (evidence of his previous training as a teacher!) and he genuinely wants to share his home country with visitors.

Definitely glad I ended up booking with Nijat! Was a great experience and the highlight of my Baku weekend.
Great experience
The tour with Nijat is among our best experiences ever. Nijad is an extremely nice guide, he makes you imerge into the atmosphere of Azerbaijan, relaxed and easy. The tour is solidly planed, it was just enough not to make us overtired, but still full of adventure and exploration.
With plenty of useful tips we were sure to get the best of Baku in the next couple of days.
Great tour, great guide
Fantastic tour of Market and Old City with Nijat
for Nijat
We asked Nijat to take us to a local food market followed by a walking tour through the old city. We visited Yashil Bazaar and explored different Azeri food (dried food and spices, fresh fruit and vegetables, pickles, jams, honey, cheeses) from different regions of the country. It was wonderful to interact with the local vendors and hear about their specialties and traditions.

During our tour of the old city, Nijat talked us through the history of Baku from the 12th Century to the present day, pointing out fascinating buildings, features and answering our questions about the city.

Nijat recommended different restaurants, cafes and wine bars to try, and what food to order when we got there.

We really enjoyed our tour and can't recommend Nijat enough,
A great tour with Nijat
Really enjoyed this tour . Nijat is a natural guide ,being informative, patient and witty.
I learnt so much more than about the places we visited
Highly recommend this tour.. a mixture of “ high adrenaline” with the Lada run to the mud volcanoes, pure fun with a great lunch and learning a lot about the cave art drawings and Fire temple.
Thank you Nijat !
