Trails of fire tour: Fire temple, Gala museum, Burning hills

Early in the morning, your English-speaking driver and Baku tour guide will pick you up from your address by Euro5 standard transport.
First, you will be taken to the Fire Temple (Ateshgah). During the ride, listen to fascinating stories about the city and the site. Upon arrival at the pentagonal complex of the Temple of Fire in Surakhani, you will see a courtyard surrounded by cells for monks and castle-like religious temple-altar in the middle.
After visiting the Fire Temple, head to the Gala Open Air Museum. There you will see a massive complex with three museums in it: Open-air ethnographic museum, Defensive Castle of 12th century and Museum of art from waste to art.
The next destination is Elite Horse Club. Here you can enjoy nature, a nice restaurant, see the horses from all over the world and ride them if you want.
Head to the last place of this tour, Yanar Dag. Behold the exciting sight of the hill which has been burning non-stop for 16 centuries! Natural gases come out from the hill which upon catching fire, creates a remarkable spectacle, especially at night.
After exploring the sites and capturing pictures, head back to the city.
