Wonderful and super tour
This tour was our second choice from Azerbaijanguide.AZ that I requested and was tailored by me. As I had mentioned in my earlier review regarding The tour of Quba and Khinaluq , we ended up booking the 3 tours with this company and all by directly communicate via WhatsApp with Artunj, the Tour Company Manager.
Although the title of this tour is 2 days 1 night in Sheki but Artunj, made it possible for us to visit Sheki and Lahic village in one day- privately. The price of the tour offered for our family of 3 was very reasonable considering Lahic village was not meant to be included in this tour but we have seen all what we wanted to see. We had a wonderful time both in Sheki and Lahic village especially the beautiful scenery throughout the journey and to have time to mingle and chats with friendly locals was truly amazing. The restaurant introduced by Ferhad (our guide) was superb. It was actually a walking distant from where we mingled with the villagers but it was set up in a beautiful garden surrounded by apple orchards and mulberry trees with delicious and even freshly cooked food.
We can not thank enough for the services provided by Artunj and Ferhad who made our visit to Sheki and Lahic so memorable. Artunj even came to our hotel and left some souvenirs for us at the reception at the end of our tour. I definitely recommend everyone to use this reliable, friendly and passionate tour company to make your tour of Azerbaijan safe and comfortable.
