Hop-on hop-off city sightseeing tours are great. They give little bit glimpse of everything in short period of time and cover massive area of a city. Baku’s hop-on hop-off buses might be expensive ($25) but their main problem is that they do not operate on a proper schedule. To avoid high price and absence hop-on hop-off buss, we suggest two public bus lines as alternative of Baku’s hop-on hop-off bus. This alternative allows you to see not only really nice places but also to realize every aspect of life in Baku city centre and suburbs.
