I chose my 25th anniversary as an occasion to travel to Azerbaijan
I chose my 25th anniversary as an occasion to travel to Azerbaijan and this tour was a token of gift to my better half. Right from the planning stage, Azerbaijan Guide- an initiative of Artunj helped me. I take this opportunity to mention in this forum that our tour wouldn’t have been what it was had it not been for the team of Azerbaijan Guide- Artunj, Farhad and Rashad. Right from the time of receiving us at the Airport, all through the tour and seeing us off at the Airport ( not merely dropping us there), we did not feel even for once that our interaction was for the first time. The touch was so personal and specially Farhad, who was our guide for the 6 days tour, treated us with such spontaneity that we did not feel for once even that we were foreigners. Farhad’s knowledge about the history of the places , his driving skills and to top to it all, his courteous behaviour was exemplary. The same can be said about Rashad, who took around old Baku. Artunj never left any scope of complaints and each one of them never hesitated to do that extra bit to make us feel comfortable. It was a life enriching tour made memorable by the service of the Azerbaijan Guide team.
Azerbaijan is a must see destination for all those who want to experience an awesome fusion of natural beauty and culture; and in order make your experience a memorable one, I wholeheartedly recommend Azerbaijan Guide as your tour operator. On behalf of my wife, I convey my best wishes to the entire team for their future endeavours. I hope, they would keep the good work going.
