    Excellent introduction to Baku's old town. While small enough to explore on your own, taking to walking tour allowed us to see so much more that we would not have discovered. The guide was fantastic!

    Had a great experience chatting with our guide and walking around the Old Town. Definitely learned more about the area and about Azerbaijan culture than we would have if we'd walked around by ourselves!
