It's a long story, but in a previous life I visited Baku on a regular basis. Over the few years I did this, I developed a deep affection for this part of the world. Now, I'd like to take Canadians to a place most have never seen before - any many have never ever heard of.
Details for this tour are still in development, but it will begin with 3 or 4 days in Istanbul, the meeting place between Europe and Asia.
Next, we will travel to Baku to marvel at this amazing juxtaposition of modern, 19th century and ancient architecture. We will also go out into rural Azerbaijan to see towns and villages more than 2000 years old. Finally, we may make a final side trip into neighbouring Georgia.
Unfortunately, my research trip planned for April had to be postponed. It has been rescheduled in September, so details & pricing for the AZERBAIJAN plus Istanbul tour will be available in October 2020.
