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.
Gobustan - Mud Volcanoes - Fire temple - Mardakan Castle (day tour)
Great Tour - We loved it!
This was a great tour and Vadim was an excellent guide. He covered the entire program and threw in a few extra, amazing stops. He also found us a nice lunch stop, helpfully met our requests, and went above and beyond when our son left his camera in the car at the end of the tour. We would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Vadim!
Trip to ancient Lahij - not only the crafts, but the scenic drive as well :)
Full-day tour to Gobustan (petroglyphs), Mud Volcanoes and Absheron peninsular (castles, Ateshgar temple, Yanar Dag burning hillside)
My 2 friends and I went on a long interesting tour with Vadim, firstly 2 hours to the south of Baku to see mud volcanoes, petroglyphs and the Gobustan museum. We travelled comfortably in Vadim's 4x4 car along the spectacular coast of the Caspian Sea, and he described what we were going to see as he drove. The only difficulty with this was that the passengers in the back couldn't always hear him clearly. I would have liked more time to walk around the museum exhibits, but we had many other things to visit. We then travelled another 2 hours to the east of Baku to the Absheron peninsular, where there were many "nodding donkey" oil wells, still in use. We visited the Zoroastrian (fire worshippers) Temple at Ateshgar and the continuously-burning 'fire mountain' at Yanar Dag, as well as 2 castles and the Qala archaeological museum - all the sights were very interesting and unusual, and we spent longer than scheduled there, but Vadim was very patient even though it was a long day's driving, returning to Baku after 8pm. It was a fascinating day, helped by Vadim's local knowledge.

Great tour, great guide
Gobustan - Mud Volcanoes - Fire temple - Mardakan Castle (day tour)
History and landscapes of central Azerbaijan
A comfortable (and safe) trip by car to the ancient village of Lahij, with stops at locations that tourist agencies may not even know about. The sceneries are beautiful! And most importantly, Vadim is a nice and friendly guy who tells you a lot of information about the places as well as anything else you may want to know about life in Azerbaijan. We also took the mud volcano / Gobustan tour. Highly recommended.

A Fantastic Day
We had six days in Baku and booked this day tour in advance to give us the opportunity to see some more of Azerbaijan. Vadim was a great guy and a very knowledgable guide, who provided us with lots of information everywhere we visited. We couldn't fault the day and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Some of the sites are fairly remote and require off road vehicle access - we felt safe with Vadim at the wheel! Thank you Vadim for providing us with so many memories of beautiful Azerbaijan.

AMAZING tour!
I really cannot say enough positive things about Vadim, he made our trip to Azerbaijan an incredible experience and went far beyond our expectations, showing us an insider view of Azerbaijani culture. He took us in a nice SVU and was very flexible in meeting our needs, even taking us to the pharmacy and bazaar after the official tour had finished. Such a professional, kind, knowledgeable and overall good person, I would highly recommend Vadim to anyone looking to visit sites outside of Baku. As for the tour itself, it is very much worth every penny, you get to have a great tour of the mud volcanoes and rock art and the Ramana Castle shows you another side of the area with a view of the oil fields. If I ever go back to Azerbaijan, I will definitely contact Vadim again and I will suggest him to all of my friends.

Awesome day with an awesome guide
Feeling a sudden urge for marshmallows next to an ancient flame temple. Driving a Lada in the middle of a muddy desert Safari. Climbing an ancient castle in flip-flops. Totally awesome day.

We were so satisfied that we took another tour the next day to check out the old city and the local winery.
Gobustan - Mud Volcanoes - Fire temple - Mardakan Castle (day tour)
Highly recommended guide to Baku
This was a great way to see a lot of sights in one day. Vladim was an excellent guide: very informative, and flexible, tailoring the trip to our needs. I would highly recommend this guide. If you take the long trip be sure to have a good breakfast first to set you up for an 8 hour day, or alternatively let the guide know you'd like to stop for lunch.
