Long but a trip well worth it!
, Sep 2019
When I first booked the tour, I expected it to be a group tour with 20 or more people, but it was only 2 travellers (including me). I was picked up by the tour guide/driver at my hotel and the trip to Sheki took roughly 5 hours. There was only one stop on the way - where we got down to stretch our legs and try the Azerbaijani famous Qutab. While 5 hours does seem a long way, the scenery was so beautiful that you didn't notice the time pass by. Once in Sheki, we made our way through the lovely and quaint town visiting the Karavansaray, the Palace and Castle, and even the Museum. The guide also made sure we try the local Sheki Piti and Halwa, both of which I doubt I would forget anytime soon. We spent roughly 3-4 hours in Sheki itself, and so didn't have too long to spend in Gabala - we just passed by the town. So, I think it would be better to call this a purely Sheki trip (which is still worth it!). The drive back was a little long and boring because it got dark by the time we got back to Baku (by 830 pm) and there wasn't much scenery to see on either side. I'd recommend doing this trip either with a friend or family to keep you company, else carry along a set of earphones to while away time during the drive!
Fake Booking
, Sep 2019
Viator charged us 20$ extra per person and even then the tour was horrible. i regret making this booking through Viator. Viator gave us a wrong contact no. for the tour operator, we tried calling several times but the phone was switched off. The company did not even have the decency to call and inform us the pickup time. We had to call several no. to get in touch with the dream tours. After calling 12 times we managed to get the pickup time. Dream Tours advised us that we would be picked up at 7:30am from our hotel, however they showed up 9:15am, they kept us waiting for 1hr and 45min. we tried calling dream tours over 20 times but they did not answer and did not even bother to inform us they would be late. After we were picked up, we went to Gabala, they took us to the lake and then headed straight to Sheki.....we informed the guide that Yeddi Gozel Waterfall and Tufandag Winter Summer Tourism Holiday Complex was part of the tour but he refused to take us to these places...the guide Gosha was very arrogant and screaming at us because we asked him to take us to the waterfall, which was pat of the itinerary. I recommend you book all your tours through TES tours as they much more professional, reasonable and honest. Worst tour i ever went on...really disappointed with Viator as they charged us 47$ extra per person on two separate tours.
Long but enjoyable tour
, Jul 2019
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
Da non ripetere

Il trasferimento da Baku a Sheki dura ben 4 ore, quindi partire alle 09 equivale a fare soltanto a fare la tappa di Sheki. Abbiamo saltato il tour di Gabala, pur avendo pagato 55 euro l'escursione è stata fatta a metà. Si dovrebbe partire alle 07 di mattina, per visitare anche Gabala e dare un senso all'escursione. A mio opinione fare 8 ore di auto per vedere soltanto Sheki non vale la pena. PESSIMA IMPRESSIONE.
