What people are saying about Hyderabad
We hit up 4 spots: Golkonda Fort, Qutab Shahi Tombs, Chowmahalla Palace, and Charminar. He also had us have lunch at Paradise for the best of the cities biriyani (the mutton is far superior to the chicken). Finally, he took us by a few local shops towards the end in case we wanted to buy anything. Our guide was extremely professional and well experienced (he's been doing this since 2004 and grew up in Hyderabad). He knew a lot about the history of the city as well as the specific areas we came to see. He also spoke English very well. The one thing I'll note is that this guide is actually a freelancer and doesn't directly work for any touring company, so can't say if he's a good representation of whomever you end up with. The only reason why I put 4 stars is because of how expensive this tour is, especially considering how little the actual guide and the driver end up getting paid.
Mohan was an awesome guide and very patient in answering all of my questions. He knew the answers to everything I asked, and he even had connections with local shops and restaurants so we never had to wait in lines anywhere. Towards the end of the tour, I found a shop that I wanted to explore. Even though the tour was over, Mohan stayed late to accompany me so that I could safely purchase a few souvenirs. This was a great experience led by an excellent guide.
This ended up being a very good tour. The driver was excellent and the Innova was more than adequate. Mohan was my guide and did a very good job. There is quite a bit of walking and stairs involved to do the Fort so be sure and let them know if you're not up for hundreds of steps.
The guide picked us up at our hotel and we went for a great day tour with him and his driver. He was very knowledgeable and showed us the best spots in Hyderabad.
Had a great time. Worked with Venu. He was well knowledgeable of the history of HYD. If you book a tour of HYD, ask for Venu.
