What to expect
  • 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.

"We were indeed looking for a day out to experience the places in Hyderabad. Through TripAdvisor we found this package to be more reasonable. Mr John had patience to explain and narrate each step we walked through and we never knew the day was over. We highly recommend for serious travelers to book through Garuda Tourism, the agency which provided this marvelous service."

Just came back to the hotel after an incredible day seeing all of the key spots in Hyderabad. My guide was Srinu (with his driver Ragu). I'm in Hyderabad for a week, so wanted to get all the key sights checked off in a single day. I knew five minutes after hearing Srinu explain the history of Hyderabad that I chose the right tour guide. Srinu has been doing this for 20+ years, knows every date, every name and every interesting fact about this city you'll every need to know. No wasted words, no unexplained visits -- just historical information at every sight as he explains the intricate cultures of Hyderabad. I don't usually write these reviews, but I really wanted everyone visiting the city to have a chance learning about it through the eyes of Srinu. You won't regret it.

We had Srinu as our tour guide. He knew the history of the city and all of its sites inside and out. He also tailored the tour to our interests. The highlight was when we went to a tea shop and took a tour of the premise where they still made tea and biscuits in a classic brick oven.

Its better to visit this portion of the full day tour in the morning before it becomes hot. Way up to the top leads around 365 steep steps, good workout for the day, but worth it to get the full glimpse of the city and the panoramic views from Baradari. The way down saw lots of small palaces of the kings and queens. There are many tombs of the rules next door, few of them are worth visiting. Recommended tour !

During Christmas, here with husband for couple of tours. The visit to Golconda after 365 steps was a mesmarsing experience with panoramic views of Tombs and country side. Enroute the jail was impressive with a small temple. The narrow stairs worth climbing at charminar get the stucco work notices and views to all four directions. The licensed guide Matta was patient enough to answer all our queries. The Car with quite clean and polite driver. Highly recommended during your stay.

I was here at this historic city for four days visiting several monuments, museums, and countryside rides with a family of six persons. This agency provided the vehicle and the guide for few days. It was really a Christmas rush, still they gave a very good historian and licensed guide, which is very important these days, who made the day bright with so many topics. The climb to Golconda fort and experiencing sounds were amazing. The pearl market and the Irani Chai was memorable. This agency could provide even the last minute bookings. I found them through internet. Highly recommended.

We visited Falaknuma palace and had taken a tour with Viator for USD 90 per person.
It’s a beautiful palace to visit but not the ones to spend this kind of money. Cost majorly includes the high tea. They serve variety of snacks out of which we liked only one or two. 90% of the snacks were totally tasteless without any touch of Hyderabad Nizam flavors (minimum expected in such palace). Sweets were good, we VB liked cookies and Mysore Pak. After high tea, they brought tea bill for Rs. 23600 for 4 persons and we were totally astonished as we had already paid in advance as part of your cost and there was a big communication gap there. We spent good ten minutes before they realized that payment has been already made.

Overall a good tour but overpriced and I will say, 30% value for money.
