An excellent guide in Baku
Azer was a great guide during our day out.

He was very accommodating to our requests, and very friendly.

He made sure that we had a good experience and went (quite literally) the extra mile for it. He was also very knowledgeable as a guide about the history of his country and brought interesting opinions and perspectives on the table.

Finally he was very helpful before and after the trip.

I highly recommend going with him on a tour!
Gobustan, Mud Volcanoes & Absheron Peninsula Tour
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.

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.

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.

Interesting and entertaining - a great experience
This 2-hour tour of the Old City was great! It took in all the important sights and also others that added interest and quirk. Nijat is wonderful - warm, friendly and so knowledgeable. He's great at explaining and he's fun and entertaining at the same time. Our 9- and 11-year-old kids came along as well, and he adjusted the tour so it was interesting for them as well. The tour was the best introduction to Baku and Azerbaijan possible.
We actually spent the whole day with Nijat. After the city tour, he took us to Yashil Bazaar where we got to try fresh fruit, nuts and veggies, dried fruit, sweets, halva, bakhlava, cheeses and kaviar. He helped us negotiate and buy what we'd liked. This was a lot of fun for the kids and yummy for all of us.
After that visit, we didn't need lunch and went to see the petroglyphs at Gobustan and the mud volcanoes. It was a fantastic day, full of different impressions and things to learn - all interesting in their own way.
We can't recommend going on a tour with Nijat enough!

Incredible Tour of Azerbaijan's Best Spots
My friends and I had an incredible experience on this tour! We were only in Baku for a couple days, so we signed on for two full-day tours with Azar. Everything went smoothly.

Our guide was wonderful– he picked us up at the train station, helped us get sorted out with finding an ATM and coffee, then we spent the entire day exploring the best of Azerbaijan. The van was comfortable and large, and we stopped plenty of times for refreshments.

He was knowledgeable about the culture and history of Azerbaijan and seemed to really enjoy showing us around. If I'm ever back in the area, I am definitely booking through Azar again!
Gobustan, Mud Volcanoes & Absheron Peninsula Tour
The best!
I had a fantastic afternoon with Nijat — far beyond my expectations! After a very through and informative introduction to Baku’s History, we roamed the “streets” of the old city uncovering Interesting moments and experiences from a baklava tasting to a hidden rug museum to a local ceramicist’s studio. I highly recommend anyone visiting Baku to book at least a few hours with Nijat; you’ll love him!

2-hr walking tour of Baku Old City with Nijat
My 2 friends and I shared a wonderful afternoon in the Old City with Nijat. His knowledge and descriptions of the outstanding landmarks and their history made an excellent and very interesting introduction to Baku and Azerbaijan for us. We spent longer than the allotted two hours because there was so much to see and hear about. Thank you, Nijat!

A definite must see
We had private tour for two people with our guide Hamran. He was excellent from start to finish. He had a great knowledge of the places we visited but was also happy to chat with us about his country and its history, culture etc. The rock art is really good but the mud volcanoes were awesome.
Gobustan, Mud Volcanoes & Absheron Peninsula Tour
Nijat is a superstar
Despite a bit of a hick-up to start off, Nijat was a delight to spend time with. His willingness to chat on all subjects (more than history) including life in Azerbaijan, politics, food, the oil industry, architecture, etc. was really the highlight. Thank you for a special time together!

Great Day Tour
We had a great day out, our guide seemed to enjoy taking us around and was very knowledgeable (we really enjoy the place he took us for lunch).
This is the tour we have enjoyed the most while in Baku and if we come back we will definitely do another tour with them. Thank you

I was very pleased with the pace of the tour and the ability to ask any and all questions I had.

I highly recommend the tour with Najit.

A brilliant day out!
Today we had a full day tour of the ancient and historical sites surrounding Baku. It was amazing! Our guide Cameron was perfect. We had booked a private tour for the 4 of us and it could not have been any better. A great way to see the sites surrounding Baku.
