Jonty's two one-on-one day-tours gave me an experience of Hyderabad I would not have had otherwise. She tailored the itinerary to my interests and opened my eyes in so many ways. From the kaleidoscopic bazaars of Charminar to the serene Paigah Tombs to the sublime Moula-Ali Dargha, I was steeped in the sociological, geographical, spiritual, political, and historical commentary that...

Dear Peter, I still think of you when I pass by the haleem stall! Unfortunately, the stall now sells only regular food. Maybe they are waiting for you to come back again next year during Ramzan to try their haleem! Thanks for being such a wonderful guest! Jonty More

I booked this tour last second when we had a layover in Hyderabad for 1 day. I emailed Jonty and asked if they could put together a half day tour. The tour was exceptional from a historical perspective. Jonty had an encyclopedic memory when it came to weaving geographic, socio-political and hirtical facts into a seamless timeline. we improvised our... More

We had Jonty take us on a combo tour of food plus some historical walk of the old city + some shopping near Charminar. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Jonty patiently explained us the history of Hyderabad which made seeing the sights in Chowmahalla and even Golconda fort ( we did this on our own) more meaningful since we had... More

What a fantastic time we had. I'm so grateful to Jonty for making Hyderabad a delight. There was nothing too diffucult. Everything was fun. The whole experience was fresh and fabulous. The food market tour, restaurants, street meals, bakery, sightseeing, craft weavers, introductions, palaces, tea, driver..... everything we simply exemplary. If you are going to visit Hyderabad, whether a veteran... More

We know its going to be a great day when a smiling lady introduced herself as Ramya asked for a few minutes so that she can introduce us to hyderabad before the actual tour begins. Kudos to Jonty for a well planned itinerary for we had a good glimpse of hyderabad's past, present and future thru its culture, arts, culinary,... More

I was looking forward to this throughout my stay in Hyderabad for a conference. I only had one full day to enjoy so I wanted to book something worthwhile. All up to the tour communication was excellent (via email) with Jonty and with Paula who was to be my guide for the day. As the only day I had available... More

I highly recommend Jonty's tours. You will gain a lot from her insider knowledge and avoidance of the well worn path!

The tour was very informative, educational and rewarding. The personal attention provided by Jonty made for a wonderful day. She was able to provide inside information with a very friendly and personal touch. Although detours specializes in the more offbeat, they were very flexible in providing experience I desired. She was able to take me behind-the-scenes to see things that... More

Travelling alone on business I wanted to get to see as much of the"real" Hyderabad as possible in a short time scale, Jonty went the extra mile showing me the many fabulous city sights. If you are going to Hyderabad then don't go around without Jonty, Her local & national knowledge is outstandingly second to none, natrually sharing her city... More

For anyone spending time in Hyderabad a tour with Jonty will put the city into context both historically and politically and will introduce you to places you would probably never find for yourself. We felt we could do the main sites - Golconda fort, Qutb Shai tombs, Charminar, museums - by ourselves but what we got from Detours was an... More
