The walking tour was very insightful and opened up a history of Baku to us through walking around its parts and hearing stories about its amazing old and new architecture. The must-do tour, especially for those who has a short stay as we had!

Response from Emin
Thank for your review.

We had a great tour with Emin on Really informative and interesting. Tour was at a good pace and ideally timed. Interesting to hear a local’s perspective not on just the history but also social and political aspects - I had felt quite ignorant about Baku and Azerbaijan prior to my visit and this definitely helped fill in gaps in my knowledge/ answer queries I had in relation to what I had seen.

Response from Emin
