From Baku: Full-Day Gobustan and Absheron All-Inclusive Tour

1. From Baku: Full-Day Gobustan and Absheron All-Inclusive Tour

Following a morning pickup from your accommodation in Baku, head in direction of Gobustan. Make a stop to visit an industrialized oil well close to the Bibi-Heybat Mosque. The journey continues to the Gobustan Museum of Petroglyphs, an indoor and outdoor museum located approximately 70 kilometers from Baku. Marvel at prehistoric rock drawings and petroglyphs which were carved by primitive men on walls of caves and on rocks, reflecting the culture, economy, and world outlook of the ancient Azeri people. Then, head to the coastal area of Azerbaijan, home to 400 mud volcanoes. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant savoring delicious Azerbaijani dishes. After lunch, visit the ancient Zoroastrian Ateshgah Temple, a former holy place for fire-worshippers. Round off the day with a visit to Yanardag, a natural gas fire that blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula.

I highly recommend Gobustan. Worth seeing. The guide is very friendly, entertaining and helpful. It is not only helped because you have paid, but also beyond that. I was traveling with my 1.5 year old son. Round trip was quite comfortable in private car.

I just had an wonderful experience of the tour because it was detailed & organized, had more than what advertised in the tour details before booking, superbly guided & enjoyable. Altogether my this trip for Azerbijan visit was extremely good & enjoyable.
