Emin is an excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable and planned a variety of activities to show the beauty and interesting details of old town. We went to the miniature museum, saw various artisan crafts and gave me time to go in and see a hammam open to women and the womens area in a mosque. I highly recommend Emin’s tour.

Emin did an incredible job introducing the founding history of Baku to us. Now looking at the buildings in Old City won’t feel the same, having understood the history behind it. Emin also introduced us to some scenic view points, lovely souvenir shops and local handicrafts.
