This was an excellent tour for those who are in Hyderabad for a short time and wish to see this beautiful city and understand its culture, history and hospitality in a intense and informative 8 hours. Our guide Mt Srinu is superb, immensely knowledgebale and professional. His ability to connect the history of India and the evolution of the city of Hyderabad with what you see physically is enviable. He is able to convey a lot of facts in detail in a simple and concise format that ensures you can fully understand and absorb what he is sharing and showing. We were also impressed by the communication with the operator prior to the tour to ensure we were fully prepared in advance, and Mr Srinu and the driver were on time when we were collected as well as ensuring that the transportation was clean and safe. Overall a wonderful experience. One guiding tip, is do wear comfortable shoes and prepare to do your steps, especially when you visit the fort. Thank you again for everything.

I highly recommend this tour. This was a full day of sightseeing in Hyderabad. I was picked up at my Hyderabad hotel at 9AM. My guide was extremely knowledgeable of the history of Hyderabad; you're pretty much being guided by a historian. I visited Charminar, Golconda Fort, the Laad Bazaar, and the Warangal Fort. It was very interesting how my guide connected the histories from each site. I was taking photos too and he showed me the best spots to take the best photos. The tour was to be 10 hours but I cut it short after 7 hours. It was hot and humid but the air-conditioned care was a pleasure. The guide and the driver would keep going but we saw a lot in the 7 hours. I was then taken back to my hotel. Highly recommended! Thank you so much for taking me around in Hyderabad!

Our travel guide, John, was great. Very knowledgeable of the history and great companion for the day. We started at the Golconda Fort, climbed to the top and could see all of Hyderabad. Definitely go first thing in the morning and bring plenty of water and sun protection. The architecture of the Qutb Shahi Tombs is beautiful. They are currently in the middle of restoring the tombs, so it's interesting to see what they look like before, during and after restoration. I believe restoration is ongoing through 2021-2022. We stopped for lunch at a local briyani restaurant for lunch and tried the veg and chicken briyani. Last stop was Charminar. By this time it was the middle of the afternoon and very hot. We walked through the bazaar and to the monument. We didn't spend too much time here as we had had enough of the heat and sun and decided to head back to the hotel. Would highly recommend this tour.

Srini was an incredibly knowledgeable and helpful guide. I felt like I came away with a great appreciation of the unique aspects of Hyderabad and its history. The Golconda fort and Charminar were definitely highlights of the tour. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to cover as much of Hyderabad's history as possible in a single day.
