When arriving in the mountainous region you are rewarded with spectacular views. The curvy streets offer good all-around view. Later on you will enter the 4000 years old village being welcomed by a nice local family. Again nice views await you. Our guide Sahah was really nice leading the way.

This was our third trip with Baku City Tours and our favourite and most memorable one by far. We were blown away by the nature in Guba and enjoyed every moment of our time here amongst the lush green mountains (the photos don’t do this place justice and hardly capture how amazing the experience was).

We visited one of the oldest and highest villages in Guba and were welcomed into one of the family’s homes for an amazing and organic lunch. Once again, our tour guide Merhabat and driver Farid, made our trip very enjoyable and memorable.

If you’re looking to see the beautiful nature in Azerbaijan, we highly recommend going on this trip. This region is a hidden treasure that will blow you away.

Just a heads up that, in general, the roads in Azerbaijan and especially on our trip North were not very well maintained and so you should keep this in mind when choosing to visit Guba. Also, this area in Guba is not accessible for 6 months during the winter season because of the snow.

We booked the tour last minute as the travel time is a bit long, but we’re glad that we did it!! The Khinalig tour is a must see, and Baku tours are very professional. Thanks to our travel guide Fariz and driver Namiq who are both helpful during the trip and took us to highly recommended places. We highly advise that you took this tour, and given a chance book Fariz as your travel guide. Will definitely book them again once we are back in Azerbaijan!

This was an excellent tour via Baku City Tours! Truly an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
To start the tour, we stopped for traditional tea and a naan wrap (so tasty) on the way to the village. Our guide Mahabat told us all about the history of Azerbaijan and the villages we were visiting during our journey to Khinaliq. He was very knowledgable and spoke numerous languages!

Mahmoud our driver drove safely through the winding roads leading to the mountains.
The views around every corner were spectacular!
Our guide stopped at viewing points and ensured we had the best photo opportunites.

The highlight of the day was meeting the locals in the mountain village and having lunch in their home.
Beautiful food was prepared for us and they catered for vegetarians. It was a pleasure to meet such friendly people.

This trip has been the highlight of my visit to Azerbaijan and I would recommend visiting this ancient village. Mahabat and Mahmoud clearly displayed a passion for their job and I can't thank them enough for the amazing memories created today.

Baku City Tours did an awesome job with this tour. Mahmoud (driver) and Mahabat (guide) were a perfect team with excellent communications beforehand to ensure a smooth start to the tour.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this tour, but it didn't disappoint.

Mahabat and Mahmoud clearly love their job, as well as their country.

Our guide took pride in telling us the history of his nation en route to Khinaliq, and they both took a personal interest in learning the differences between our cultures, as well as those of our other 2 travellers from Czech Republic.

On the way up (and down) we stopped near Quba to enjoy traditional tea and wraps which were made in front of us at the roadside.

There were breathtaking views through mountain passes as we gained altitude.

Our village hosts were welcoming and entertaining. Their freshly made food was very tasty and filling. We had the vegetarian dishes, but meat lovers won't be disappointed.

Our guide and driver ensured we had regular stops at the best photogenic sites. They were patient and took additional photos for us which, due to their experience, were better than ours.

If you're lucky enough to have Mahabat and Mahmoud on your tour, you'll have a great time.

An unforgettable experience.

Really worth the trip. Highly recommended. If you book this tour include the lunch so you would experience the traditional lunch prepared by the village family.
A lot of good sceneries to see on your way to the village. I enjoyed the group and our guide is very knowledgeable and always there to help especially in taking pictures.
This tour is the best ever and highly recommended!

This is a amazing tour away from Baku city. We traveled by minivan to Guba or Quba and the Qecresh forest of straight tall trees, We drove up the Caucasus mountains to the Khizi region and Khinaliq village. The landscape is spectacular with snow-capped mountains. We were very close to the Russian border. Our guide Ali speaks good English and our driver is very good. On the way down we drove through steep gorges. We had a traditional lunch at a Quba teahouse. This is an excellent trip.
