Johan (16.12.2016)

We planned our tour to Azerbaijan couple of years ago, but did not have a chance to reach there. We bought the ticket and booked the tour and had got advice about gaining visa in Austria online on Azerbaijantrips, we saved much time with help of their team. Starting from Baku airport we've entered unique atmosphere, where you combine history and modernity, I can compare Baku with Dubai, but filled with rich history, it was a great story how Alexander the Great visited the place near Baku more than 2 thousand years ago, our driver with guide took us there, even if we did not have it in plans. We also were in very ancient city Gobustan, where there are art-historical museum which was included to UNESCO heritage. The team is highly flexible, concierge support was great, the girl from support organized special romantic dinner for our anniversary with flowers and saxophone in one the best fish restaurants with sea view near Baku, we will never forget this special day.
