About this Tour

Immerse yourself in the center of one of the oldest human beings living center, a UNCESCO–listed site full of stunning rock drawings, and extraordinary Mud Volcano in 5 hours tour from Baku. You will have a chance to discover fascinating historical facts in Gobustan National Park with a knowledgeable guide and to see ancient petroglyphs which have been drawn 10,000-15,000 years ago by very first human beings.

We will pick you up from your hotel/hostel on time. Then, we will head out to the Mud Volcano which is located near the Gobustan Museum.  Azerbaijan's mud volcanoes definitely should be part of any tourist's itinerary. So many of them are within close proximity to Baku, especially, those at Alyat, Gobustan and other locations. Optionally, you can jump into a volcano and swim. The mud volcanos are beneficial for your skin! After exploring mud volcanoes, we will continue our tour to Gobustan National Museum. Gobustan was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011, considered to be of "outstanding universal value" for the quality and density of its rock art engravings, for the substantial evidence the collection of rock art images presents for hunting, fauna, flora, and lifestyles in pre-historic times. During the second part of the tour, we will visit a museum where we will get initial information about Gobustan Rock Arts and later on, the tour will continue in an open air museum. In this part of the museum as a visitor, you will have a great opportunity to take an even closer look at ancient rocks. Your tour guide will make your visit even more remarkable by telling interesting stories about the rocks and place itself.
Note: In the case of rainy weather we might not be able to go up to the Mud Volcanos. In that case, we will refund $10.
