Azerbaijan is a tangle of contradictions and contrasts. Neither Europe nor Asia, it’s a nexus of ancient historical empires, but also a ‘new’ nation rapidly transforming itself with a super-charged gust of petro-spending. The cosmopolitan capital, Baku, rings a Unesco-listed ancient core with dazzling 21st-century architecture and sits on the oil-rich Caspian Sea. In the surrounding semi-desert are mud volcanoes and curious fire phenomena.
Our tours are led by professional, licensed guides. A guidebook is simply no substitute for a real person with local knowledge. We show you the hidden treasures of the places we visit, and explain them in an informative, and where appropriate, entertaining manner. And unlike some operators, we don’t spring surprises on you. Where transport, entrance fees, a meal or anything else is required to ensure the smooth running of the tour, we include it in the price – there’s nothing more to pay. In short, we aim to help you make the most of your time in Baku & Azerbaijan.
