Dear travelers, I welcome you to my hometown of Baku, where I was born and raised. My name is Emin. I love Baku: its windy climate, its magnificent architecture, its mystical history, and its welcoming people. I live in the city of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. I can organize tours and accommodation in Azerbaijan. I can create private and group tours as business or travel to other regions of Azerbaijan such as Sheki, Qabala, Shamaxi, Quba, Lankaran and others. If you want more information, do not hesitate to contact me.
