Gani was great. we learned a lot from him. the information he provided gave meaning to the various places and statues. gani's tour was way much better than the city tour included in our actual tour group itinerary. we were supposed to go with him later in the afternoon but we had to miss it because i had to buy clothes as azerbaijan airlines misplaced my luggage.
