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!

The tour starts at 09:00 after picking up the guests from their hotel.
First we lead to the Gobustan area to explore the Mud Volcanoes and Gobustan rocks. When we reach to Gobustan area we will switch to the lada car (russian car) in order to get to the Mud Volcanoes because the way going to there is in bad condition, and after coming back from there we will again take our comfortable car and head to Gobustan rocks. There we will visit closed museum and then head to rocks (open air museum).
After that we will head back to Baku city, and on the way we will have 2 stops, first we will stop at Bibiheybat Mosque and after spending about 15 minutes there we will go to our next destination- The World's 1st Industrially Drilled Oil Rig.
After that we will have a lunch stop (Depending on the guest wish we can go to national restaurant or any other)

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
