It was our first day in Baku. We Met EMIN. He was wonderful. He had the knowledge of the complete city. Though it was only two of us, for the entire tour, which is me and my wife, He continued with the tour and showed us a lot of places which were very interesting and he had historical knowledge about every thing. He had his own fun way of explaining things. Wonderful, energetic, informative and friendly.
