Very beautiful places, interesting stories and the best guide (his name is Murat, if I remember correctly)! There were 13 people from different countries in our group, with different level of English I think, and I saw Murat’s efforts to tell us history etc in simple words so that everyone could understand! I regret that I forgot to leave tip :-( but may be next time I will be lucky enough to go in another tour with him and that time I won’t forget about tip! Also there was a Japanese guide. I know Japanese, so I also could understand what he is telling to Japanese tourists and how he does it. Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name, but he is also a very good guide! And a very nice person! Many thanks to both of these guides!

Exhilarating experience. Our guide, Aygul, was really good, knowledgeable and very helpful. She made the 5km hike enjoyable. Terrain was a little challenging for us city folks but she was amazingly patient and guided us through the path beautifully. 100% recommended.

I enjoyed a lot the tour. The guide offered us a lot of explanations about the region, personal background being very important in this case.

An incredible experience, highly recommended 100%, thank the guide for their involvement. IT HAS EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. Thanks

The guide was excellent, so funny and interesting, and the tour was really worth it, so many beautiful places to see.
