What people are saying about Historical Tours in Baku

star-5
Gabala & Sheki Tour
"Although this is a very long tour, it was really enjoyable. I thought it was a group tour at the time of booking, but it turned out to be a private tour. The tour was conducted in a private sedan. Along with us there was the Driver (Mr.Eldanis) and the tour guide (Mr.Ismail). Both were very friendly and decent guys. The guide was well spoken in english and explained to us about the significance of the stops included in the tour. We covered Sheki first and Gabala on the return. We skipped the Cable car ride as personal choice. Sheki was so beautiful and peaceful. Lunch was at a delightful restaurant in the Karavanserai. Nohur lake was nothing to write home about and could be avoided. In any case the overall tour from pick up to drop off lasted 14.5 hours. Tiring but fullfiling day. A group tour would certainly take longer"..."
