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.

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.
Day Tour to Gobustan Reserve, Mud Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Mardakan Castle
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.
2-Hour Walking Tour of Baku's Top Sights
Passionate guide with great experience
This trip is well balanced. You have a museum, a hike and a nature sight (including driving an old Soviet car). Nijat is opened for sharing local experience and does not give too much of “waste touristic” information:)
Short trip to UNESCO World Heritage Listed Gobustan and Mud Volcanoes
Enjoyable day out with Nejat
It was an enjoyable day out of Baku with Nejat, with him being very friendly and accommodating. Learnt a great deal about the sights as well as about Azerbaijan. Definitely recommended!
Day Tour to Gobustan Reserve, Mud Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Mardakan Castle
Amazing trip,amazing guide and amazingand driver
Day Tour to Gobustan Reserve, Mud Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Mardakan Castle
Interesting history and a real adventure
This is a really interesting tour that brings you to two very unusual sites. Nijat is a wonderful guide, warm, fun and full of knowledge about not only the sites but anything and everything you'd ever like to know about Azerbaijan. He made what would have been a very challenging and potentially exhausting and problem-ridden excursion into a fun trip.
The museum at Gobustan is world-class excellent, both for kids (we have an 11- and a 9-year-old) and grown-ups. The little hike to some of the pertroglyphs is also great. There aren't many places in the world where you get to see carvings this old.
The taxi ride to the mud volcanoes is a real adventure and the volcanoes themselves are different from anything you might get to see anywhere else. As we were wandering around, one of them erupted and got us all spattered with mud drops, whish made the kids' day.
If you have half a day to spare in Baku, we can warmly recommend this trip!
We'd spent the morning with Nijat as well, doing the 2-hour tour of the city and visiting Yashil Bazaar where we tried all kinds of delicious foods. It was a wonderful day thanks to Nijat and his knowledge and passion for sharing it. If you want to learn about Azerbaijan from the inside out, you should definitely book a tour with Nijat. He gaves us great tips of where tp go for dinner and what Azerbaijani dishes we shouldn't miss.
Short trip to UNESCO World Heritage Listed Gobustan and Mud Volcanoes
One of the best day tours we've done!
My partner and I have travelled a lot and done a lot of tours but this was one of the best day tours we've been on.
Our guide Nijat was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. There were only two of us on the tour but we felt at ease straight away. The car picked us up where we were staying and we headed to Qobustan which included petroglyphs, fantastic Azeri landscape and the mud volcanoes! The drive to the mud volcanoes was fantastic. We travelled in a local soviet era taxi and it was off road. Very bumpy fun. I was smiling the whole time. The mud volcanoes themselves were unreal. Felt like we were on a different planet.
After that we headed to the Fire Temple. Very interesting history!
Our final stop was a small 'castle' which was more like a tower but it was so cool. It's looked after by a local man who was very friendly (we also got to see the super cute kittens in his garden).

Overall it was a great day out. We couldn't recommend this tour enough. Baku is well worth visiting and we would go on this tour again!
Day Tour to Gobustan Reserve, Mud Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Mardakan Castle
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!

Beautiful hike...
.. and a great day with our guide Nurlan. Everything went very smooth. Nurlan was responsive on WhatsApp the moment I contacted him, and helped me to put a plan together for the day.

Pick-up from the hotel was punctual, and we had an approx 3 hours drive into the mountains where we changed into a Lada and then continued to a mountain village. From there, we hiked to another village. The hike itself is about 10 km and not very strenuous as you stay at the the same altitude level (2200m). Views were breathtaking. At the end of the trip we had a lunch in a local farmhouse and then walked back to the car, and drove back into Baku. Nurlan was knowledgeable about the environment and shared many interesting insights.

All in all, a perfect day, and highly recommended!
Khinalig - the village in the clouds
Great tour with a pleasant guide
I booked this tour to get to know a bit of Azerbaijan outside of Baku. Nijat picked me up at my hotel and we were safely and comfortably driven to the various sites. We spoke in advance about the extent of the tour and Nijat has responded flexible to my special requests. He has an extensive knowledge of the sights and their history and he knows how to impart this knowledge entertaining. In between, there was always enough time for photos. As a special experience, the trip to the mud volcanoes took place on gravel roads in a Lada taxi. At lunchtime there was a lunch with national typical dishes from the buffet, so that you could try many different dishes. Thank you Nijat for this interesting and eventful day.

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.

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!

Excellent tour with amazing guide
The tour was fabulous!!!
Nijat is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide, during the whole tour, I felt very comfortable.
We visit Qobustan which is a fabulous place to visit!!!
We went to the mud volcanoes in a local soviet era taxi and it was a very fun moment and with a lot of adventure!!!! :)
Near the Fire temple, we had a small break and the food at the restaurant was very nice.
One of the best tours I have done!
Definitely recommended!
Day Tour to Gobustan Reserve, Mud Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Mardakan Castle
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!

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.

Brilliant day trip from Baku
Nijat and driver Sanan are a great double act, personable and informative. Fire temple and Petrographs were impressive but highlight was seeing mid volcanos driven in an old Lada. Nijat learned I was a football fan so detoured to show me the Qarabag stadium and statue of the famous 1966 linesman. I fully recommend this tour to anyone visiting Baku with a free day

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!
