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!
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!
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
