Start your Hyderabad excursion with a morning pickup from your hotel. You’ll continue to your day’s first stop, at the Golconda Fort.

Take advantage of the morning’s cooler temperatures as you scale the 360 steps of this medieval structure. You’ll then continue on a short trip of 7 miles (12 kilometers) outside the city center to visit the Warangal Fort, a site which was once part of India’s Kakatiya Dynasty that dates back to the 12th century.

Head back to Hyderabad’s city center to enjoy time for lunch (at your own expense). Locals often recommend visitors try out the city’s famous ‘biryani,’ a dish featuring basmati rice, meat, yogurt, onions, and various spices. You’ll continue after your meal break with a visit to The Charminar, a city monument designed in the Qutub Shahi architectural style that’s known as one of the most famous sights in India. You can also climb the monument’s narrow steps to enjoy a sky-high view of the city below.

Proceed next to Laad Bazaar Street, a shopping area offering everything from bangles to bridal accessories to ‘attar’ (essential oil) and antiques. You’ll end the day with a stop at the Mecca Masjid, one of the oldest mosques in town, before receiving a drop-off back at your hotel.

I took several tours with Mr. Srinu, all of them very interesting, l learned about the culture, the history. The guide is very knowledgeable and ready to answer all India related questions, not just related to the place visited. Enjoyable!

I was in Hyderabad for work and had a day off to do some sightseeing. I was picked up at my hotel and got to see all the main sights. I would recommend if in town.

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.

The Hyderabad Tour was great! My favorite part was the Golconda Fort. The tour guide added many important historic details that made the tour memorable. We visited additional sites that followed my interests such as palaces, tombs and lunch by Hussain Sagar Lake.

Fantastic tour, our guide Srini went above and beyond for the group. We had some extra stops we wanted to make and he took us to some special local places that were exactly what we were looking for. He was super knowledgable, as well as patient lot of photographers in our group and we learned a lot. The small group made it feel really special, definitely recommend booking!

Amazing! The private tour was unexpected, but my Tour Guide Karuna Nhidi was easily the best tour guide I have ever known.

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.

I really enjoyed the tour of Hyderabad. Madhu was a great guide; he provided lots of information on the history of Hyderabad and India in general. A great way to see a lot of the sites in a short amount of time, while also learning the history.
