      A well guide who demonstrated with all the efforts and each part of the story we felt like we were really feeling it
      The view was very amazing and she helped to get a good couple photo of us. Thank you Nazperi. A tour guide with a energy and expression on her face was a lot to make us completely focus on the story behind the place.

      Professional, Responsive, Efficient Travels with TES
      We travelled as a family for 7 days in Azerbaijan. We chose a customized land package with TES which comprised for certain group tours viz. Baku Night Tour, Gobustan-Absheron, Old City and two multi-day trips to Gabala-Sheki and Gobu-Xinaliq. For the multi-day tours, TES arranged for vehicle with a (basic english-speaking) driver. TES also provided airport pick up and drop services. Aynur Maharramova assisted us from TES. She is a very responsive professional and understood our requirements in detail and took timely steps to execute upon our planned schedules. From the time she crafted a detailed itinerary on the cue of our inquiry on the internet webpage of TES, and right till our return flight, she was in constant touch through the seven days ensuring that the ball didn't drop :) In case it did, she handled it well to ensure that our stay was pleasant and our time in Azerbaijan, memorable. We highly recommend Aynur M and TES for exploring the Azerbaijan regions. Thank you!

      Trip to Azerbaijan
      I must say I am delighted with the service you provided - it was just what I wanted. Although this is the first time I have used your services, and both times you provided a fantastic/outstanding experience. I will definitely recommend you to others, and will approach you myself when I travel to baku again. I don't have any immediate plans, but hope to visit baku again within years anytime ahead in future. Thanks and God bless you all 🙏 your dedications to your hard work are fruitful and wish you all a very prosperous and successful journey ahead. ❤️ I highly recommend all reviewers/tourists to choose Tes tourism as their guide and i assure you all through my experience that you are going to remember this staff for ages.

      6 stars possible?
      I would've given a 6th star if allowed. Aynoor was very accommodating to my customized plan and ensure all of it was accommodated and plus some more. Our guide Vuqar became like a part of the group, even after his tour time finished he stayed until late to ensure we reached our hotel safely so we don't have to search for a cab. He accomodated every little request we had whether it was food, shopping or a detour. Couldn't have asked for a better person to guide us. And he loved our kids so much. The first picture is a place he just randomly stopped for us to take some pictures as the lavender garden was closed until full bloom. He cared that much. When winerys were closed on Tuesdays, he still stopped for atleast 4 which would've been open just to ensure we get the experience. Oh and he is an awesome driver

      Amazing
      It is an amazing trip. The road until there is spectacular with breathing views. The village, the small trekking, the viewpoints are all amazing. Our guide Farid was very knowledgeable and put a lot of passion in explaining all the Azerbaidjan traditions. All the trip felt personal and unique because of him. Would 100% recommend this guide and this trip. Be aware that is a 12h trip and they will not do it in a hurry so you have time to enjoy all the sights. Greetings from.the Romanian group.

      Stunning and building memories.... never slip these opportunities!!
      Our tour guide (Agil) was very knowledgeable regarding Azerbaijan and answered all our questions. We cruised with a small bus but comfortable with our driver (Vugar) all over the country safely, he is the best driver and know these roads. My highlight was most definitely being on top of the mountains at Tufan Dag resort. Highly recommend this tour

    We booked 3 days tours around Baku and Quba, I can’t express my disappointment and stress enough with words. First tour in old city which should have taken 3 hours, took less than 1.5 hours , nothing much to see or do or just save the money and do it alone. More importantly it was hard with kids and meant nothing to them . Second day tour to Quba is literal torture, the bus was overcrowded no room to move a foot, no air , a trip that took 12 hours in the middle we were taken to what they called a local house for lunch, I can call that the worst day of my life. The place lacks basic hygiene expectations, food cooked with dead flies, flies all over the table and our heads. Food as they called it was rice , salad ( with flies and hairs) tea, dolma and tea. We had no option to refuse, I would pay to forget what we saw. No proper bathroom, a whole in the ground with no sanitary equipment. I saw friends tours to Quba nothing like what we had. Just take care when you choose a tour company and see what they offer as I will not talk about the 3rd tour. The only good thing is people who work there, polite and nice.

    I would never again go on a tour where babies are allowed. TES tours must establish the lower age limit, say, 8 years old. We had a baby on our tour, who ruined it all for us, who was screaming for 6 out of 8 hours of our trip. Some people simply left half-way. It was absolutely unbearable.
    Our guide, Samir, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and generally good, was doing great job, trying to speak over the baby’s screaming. But it must have been very difficult for him.
    I cannot even imagine, how difficult it was for our driver, and how he managed to keep us safe on this hell of a journey.
    Felt terribly sorry for the baby too. He was obviously tired, even exhausted, or unwell.
    I would recommend that potential future tourists stay clear of operators who allow babies on tours.

    Our guide Sameer one of the worst. He primarily engaged with those seated in the front, leaving those in the back unable to hear him. Additionally, he often conversed in Russian and Turkish, which made it difficult for English speakers to understand. One positive aspect of the tour was that they didn't take us to shops for shopping. The tour included hotel pickup and drop-off; however, at the tour's conclusion, the driver dropped me off at an unfamiliar location, forcing me to take a taxi back to the hotel.

    It was a very cold day but the spirited Samir, who was our guide, made it so well worth it. He was very well informed and also very spontaneously funny. Unfortunately due to rains, we couldn't see the mud volcanoes, but inspire of that, it was genuinely a fun trip. Definitely recommend this to anyone who was to hit the key highlights of Baku sightseeing.

    We had an incredible time on the tour which we had selected. Samir, our guide has a wealth of knowledge and was happy to explain anything that was asked.
    The restaurant for lunch was also very good and very economical for the quality of the food. My only wish is that I had more time in the country to visit the other beautiful places that Azerbaijan has to offer.
    I will definitely contact TES when I return to Azerbaijan in the future!

    Highly recommended especially if the tour guide is the same. (Sorry I forgot the name)

    He was very knowledgeable. He even catered to speak in 2 languages because our group can only speak English and Uzbek.

    The tour started on time. He explained every important area that we passed through. He also explained thoroughly every place that we visited and even assisted us on what to order during lunch. Overall, it was a fun and great group tour!

    I booked with TES Tour after reading some of the very good reviews. I purchused the tickets that include ( entrance fees & open buffet choice). Unfortunately although the tour guide seemed to be knowledgable his English was not always clear. Then at Lunch we found out IT was NOT an open buffet as it was promised( food was behind the glass counter) . I, my friend and an american tourist lady kept asking to get a mix of all dishes to sample and the waiter totally ignored us and kept asking us to give her our order/ choice in spite of the guide even translating. We were totally ignored, no one came to our table, our food came after everyone else. We were totally scammed on this!! I travel a lot and booked some many tours before i was satisfied with most. This was definitly not a good one. We were also not impressed by the yanardag ( just a very tiny burning area)

    OMG, OMG, OMG. This museum is still absolutely stunning and gorgeous it’s hard to believe it’s real inside. It looks like something out of Star Wars or Star Trek I’ve never seen anything like this in my life especially the staircase check it out. This is a must see and make sure you have a drink or coffee at the museum. Literally one of the most beautiful museums in the world bar none!

    Great trip. Alex, our guide, was very good and could tell about history and tales of all the places. He is very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to have conversations throughout the day on a broad range of topics. Of the places the Gobustan stands out as truly special.
