1. Re: car with guide around Azerbaijan

Good day. Yes, you can book a private car and visit the sightseeing places in Baku. We recommend you to start from Highland Park, where you can enjoy the beautiful panoramic view to Baku, then visit the Old City "Icheri Sheher". You can find there traditional hammams, ancient mosques, Maiden Tower, Shirvanshah palace, art galleries and lots of nice cafes and restaurants. The other places to visit around Old City is Fountain Square, Governor's Garden, Philharmonic Hall, Baku Seaside Boulevard. There are beautiful Little Venice and Carpet Museum located at the Boulevard. All of this places located not fra from each other, and the car is not required. All of the are 5-6 mins away from each other. Approximately 10 mins away from the Boulevard you can visit the Heydar Aliyev Center - the modern part of Baku. 30-40 mins away from Baku - the fire temple Ateshgah, the burning mountain Yanardag, mud volcanoes and the National Art Preserve - Gobustan.

The interesting parts of the country are - Gabala, Sheki, Lahij village and Quba. In each of them are lots of sightseeing places and beaitiful nature. All of them except Sheki loctaed 3 hours away from Baku. Sheki is approximately 4-5 hours away. You can reach those places by private car or taxi. The price is depends which option you choose.

How much would a taxi be from Baku centre to Gobustan and the other places you mention close to Baku. Is it easy to arrange taxis in the other direction? Or should these be booked in advance?

Good day. If you book Uber or Taxify the price will be AZN 20 one way. If you book "purple cabs" the price may be 25-30 AZN. You can book Uber and Taxify in advance. Or order private car services.

Travel companies will be more convenient such as Arif RN Travel, Pasha Travel and some others. Just email them to book a car for your all trips. Taxi is cheaper than it only for few trips, but it will be difficult to find taxi to come back Qobustan or other places.
