Good tour. Would recommend The tour started late but that was because the roads were blocked because of president's canvalcade.

Arif è stato una guida precisa che ha descritto con passione la sua città. Il tour è differente rispetto agli altri proposti sia come itinerario che come modalità. L'unico neo è rappresentato dall'ora di ritardo non comunicata da Arif e staff dell'agenzia.

Visit a lot of places with this tour, and see all the main sights of Baku in one morning - including a great view of Baku from the top. The guide is knowledgeable but you should definitely try to listen closer and ask questions to get a full story of Baku & Azerbaijan's history.
