This was an interesting tour around Old City Baku and Highland Park. Would definitely recommend. If you choose the evening tour (ours started at 7pm), the museums will be closed so just be aware of that.

Arif is a very professional, punctual and well prepared guide. He enjoys his job and keep the visitors involved in learning the history of the places. He is awesome.

Private tour with Arif has been pleasant. He does know the history of Baku through and through and exactly know where the best spots are at! Kudos!
