It was a fantastic private tour finally & well guided. Gabala & cable car both were fabulous. I enjoyed the magnificent snow fall over the mountain top at Tufandag which will be memorable. After Gabala, Lake Nohur was also really beautiful to visit. Guide was so good.

It tooks 13 hours. Maybe this tour is needed faster speed. And also , making a group tour under 6 people or less is needed. My tour was consisted of 10 or more people(and 4 groups), so two guides were not enough to lead the tour.
