As a geographer, I would like to share my knowledge about my city and show you the most valuable sights. I adore art and literature and believe that those are the most magical tools to perceive our world better. Thus, I always arrange my tours in a way that you sense the magic. P.S sometimes it is possible to change starting time of the tour. So just ask.

Kamil kann sehr viel über die Geschichte von Baku und Aserbaidschan erzählen und einem dabei markante Plätze und Gebäude zeigen. Auch schöne Fotospots sind dabei und er macht gerne Bilder von einem. Zu guter letzt hat er mit noch Restaurant und Foodtipps zu lokalem Essen gegeben und mir geholfen, ein Metroticket zu kaufen (das ist gar nicht so leicht, weil der Automat nur kyrillische Buchstaben anzeigt ;-)). Er spricht gut Deutsch weswegen man von dieser Tour wirklich viel mitnehmen kann. Ganz klare Empfehlung!

Die Tour war, vor allem geschichtlich, sehr interessant, und Kamil hat all unsere Fragen, auch abseits der eigentlich Tour, vollumfänglich beantwortet 👍🏻 Der mitgebrachte Tee war eine sehr nette Geste und hat gezeigt, dass er sehr um uns bemüht war.
