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

Our tour with Kavitha was absolutely wonderful. She kept the tour interested and was patient with our questions as well as our 4 year old wildness. It was a great way to see hidden gems and to have a day filled with fun exploring!

My husband and I spent a fabulous day with Kavitha last week. We took a personalised day tour that included Golkonda Fort, Chowmahalla Palace and Paigah Tombs and a delicious lunch. We really appreciated Kavitha's extensive knowledge, but more importantly she communicated this knowledge in such an engaging, interactive and thoroughly enjoyable way. Spending the day with Kavitha was more... More

We are a group of 4 and did a full day tour including the Golconda forts, Qutb Shahi Toms, Chowmahalla Palace, Laad bazaar and the Paigah Tombs. The tour was actually very flexible and they'll tailor it to your preferences. Kavitha was our guide and she was very knowledgeable and told us a lot about the history, geography and culture...

Trying to figure out sightseeing during an unplanned, extended stay in Hyderabad, I came across Detours as I searched online. And I am so glad that I did! Jonty (founder – Jayanthi Rajagopalan) and Kavitha – each led a tour – are terrific guides. In addition to being knowledgeable about Hyderabad history, culture, and geography, they are also smart, perceptive,... More

If I wrote everything I loved about my experience with Kavitha and Detours you wouldn't finish this review! I'll try to touch on just a few of the highlights.
