Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Gobustan Rock Art, Baku, Absheron Region

We will utilize a private car/private bus (depending on the number of people joining the tour) to reach Gobustan National Reserve. The tour will start off from Gobustan Museum where you will see ancient human bones, work tools used in back to thousand years ago during the Mesolithic period. Gobustan geographical region is situated in the west-south of Baku. The meaning of the word Gobustan is derived from two words gobu ravine and stan- place, i.e. ravine area. The word gobu is also of Turkic origin and means a dried up river valley.
After visiting Gobustan museum, you will advance to the mountain in order to see real rock paintings in the open air museum.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Mud Volcanoes, Qobustan, Daghlig Shirvan Region

Later on, the tour will proceed to the Mud Volcano which is 20 mins away from Gobustan National Museum. Azerbaijan keeps the first place in the world for the number of mud volcanoes. About 300 mud volcanoes are to be found in Azerbaijan at the shore, in the sea and on islands. During this trip you will get a great chance to see these amazing active volcanoes from very close distance.
Important Note:
On wet seasons/rainy weather conditions, the Mud Volcanoes can be very muddy and impossible to reach by car. Therefore, in case of rainy weather/bad road conditions the trip to mud volcanoes will be substituted with a visit to Bibiheybat Mosque on the way back to the city center.

Duration: 20 minutes

    Very interesting day, both places give you a different experience. Would recommend if you are in Baku.

    Shahin was the most excellent guide for this tour and was super knowledgeable about many topics generally about the country, city, and region. The tour of the mud hills and the park was very good, and his in depth detailed knowledge and explanations in excellent English by the way, made the whole tour. Very worthwhile and highly recommended!

    Vusal was an excellent guide and he made the drive to the mud volcanoes and Gobustan National Park both incredibly fun and informative. We would recommend him and his colleague who drove to anyone wishing to see the incredible Petroglyphs in the region just south of Baku. Absolutely would recommend this tour to friends and family.

    AWESOME! I don't know how long this secret will last actually the beautiful secret of Azerbaijan to be honest! - so while it does, GO FOR IT! A great, off the beaten track tour that is one of a kind. Our driver was great, it felt like a local tour with true local information... something you don't always get these days. We loved the mud volcanoes and the Gobustan National Park was like an added bonus! Great all around tour - highly recommend.

    Overall it is an interesting experience at a good price. We first went to Gobustan National Park and then to the mud volcanos. Our guide at Gobustan Park answered all our questions. The only thing that we didn't like is that she seemed to be constantly at a rush as she would speak too fast and some people from the group couldn't follow her pace of changing the rooms in the museum. Another thing is that there were many groups at the same time in each room, which are generally small, making it difficult to listen to her if you couldn't stay next to her due to the noise. The rest of the tour was ok.

    Our driver didn't speak English very well so sometimes there was some lack of communication. Nevertheless, we should give him some credits for helping a couple in our group who brought their baby girl with them.

    A lot of driving for a few sites. The mud volcanoes were very unique and the petroglyphs were interesting.

    Guide was great! Very friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. Unfortunately the weather was bad so we could not use the roads to go to the mud volcanoes.
