Booked this tour for our family of four having done a street food tour last year with another organisation in Delhi. Was very disappointed as this was a lot more expensive and was not well organised and felt very ad hoc. The first place we visited whilst great left us already feeling full due to be meal provided. After that... More

On Saturday, I took the full day weaving tour with Paula as my guide. First stop was the Paigah tombs, which were very beautiful. The brief rundown of Indian history and Geography Paula gave me was most informative and interesting. Next stop was at the home of a Pochampally weaver, Shankar, and he gave a fantastic demonstration of the dyeing... More

In early July 2015 Jonty arranged a half-day biryani tour for me and four friends, including a 14-year-old. She went above and beyond in every way, providing simply the best guided experience I have ever had in a foreign city. The cooking lesson was filled with warmth, charm, enticing aromas, gobsmackingly good food, and real friendliness; the tour of the... More

I was in Hyderabad on business and found myself with some free time. I wasn’t sure I would be able to book a tour at the last minute. Jonty responded very quickly to my email; during the evening I was able to book a solo tour for the very next day. I hadn’t done much research into what I might... More

Jonty was the perfect guide for my solo tour - informed, friendly, and accomodating. I had an afternoon spare and we managed to fit in the palace, the tombs and fort, and all were excellent. Jonty is really clued up on the history and tells one story after another to bring the place alive for you. Travelling around by air... More

I had a wonderful day and a half with Kavitha. The full day tour included the touring wonderful Goloconda Fort, beautiful tombs, and a terrific cooking lesson and lunch. I didn't find the weaving place as interesting but it may have been because I was exhausted by then. The next day we did a walking tour of the Charminar area... More

Jonty picked me up ay my my hotel in a private car, with a driver and plenty of water and sodas. As we got on our way, she began with a fascinating overview of India's history and how such factors as geography and climate have contributed to the country's cultural and economic development. I was initially reluctant to visit the... More
