One thing that you immediately notice when you enter the city of Baku is its heart that throbs with culture and heritage. It is an antique gem of a tourist spot where our tour begins by introducing you to the major focal point of the city - the Shirvanshah palace. Here you will get to see the modest but impressive palace building that used to house the rulers of the Shirvan. We will take you through the main palace building to the mausoleum of Divan khan that rests within the complex. You will also be able to visit the old mosque and the royal sauna while you are here.

When you look at the overall landscape of Baku, you will be impressed by the sheer number of towers and minarets that form the skyline of the old city. Our tour will definitely halt at the Maiden tower which is one of the most prominent landmark spots of the city. You will see this ancient stone tower built in the Zoroastrian age and experience its immense story as you climb to the top of the tower along the spiral staircase that takes you to a spectacular view of the Caspian Sea and the entire cityscape of Baku.

A tour of Baku will remain truly incomplete if you did not get to experience the rich inn culture of the few caravanseris or Hans that are well preserved till date. You can experience the antique feel of the stone inns complete with a look at the incredible old world layouts that boast of sleeping areas, storage space and stables to house the horses. Enjoy the feel of true luxury as your tour takes you through Sheki which is the biggest of these caravanserai which has now been revamped and launched as a premium boutique hotel.
