I really wanted to see outside of Hyderabad so I arranged for a full day rural tour. Kavitha was my guide and words fail me on how amazing my day was today. To see village life and be a part of it, to experience the temples, see weddings, watch all the animals, and amazingly, get to spend share food and... More

I did a full day tour with Paula. She was extremely informative and you can tell she really loves her job. We saw many of the top sites in Hyderabad and I got a good history lesson along the way. She was an excellent guide and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn more about the city.

I had a full day tour with Paula in September 2014. I cannot give the tour any higher recommendation it is a great way to see the city, to understand it's culture and heritage. If you are in Hyderabad and have the time this tour is well worth it particularly if you'd like to see some of 'secret' Hyderabad and... More

We took two day tour trips with Kavitha from Detours India and wished we could have had more time in Hyderabad. Kavitha was so interesting and enthusiastic from the moment we met her and she managed our family's requirements beautifully (boys, so speed touring and no museums). We went on the street food tour and it was a real highlight... More

Exploring Hyderabad with Jonty for a few days was one of the highlights of our recent two-week stay in India. Jonty is friendly, fun, full of fascinating information, and is flexible. She took us on a historical tour, guided us to safe street food, arranged a tasty lunch with a Hydrabadi family, showed us some of the arts and crafts... More

I had one day to spend touring the highlights of Hyderabad, and Jonty (the owner of Detours India) did not disappoint. She set up a tour of some of the historical sites in the old city - Chowmahalla Palace, Charminar, Paigah Tombs - and also took me through the markets for a while. I had asked her in advance to...

We had a wonderful experience discovering Hyderabad today. Our tour guide Paula provided us with a great tour with lots of valuable information about the history of the sites we visited. She also made us experience the true Hyderabad by visiting handicraft workshops, walking through the Charminar market, and tasting Hyderabad's specialties. She was also very helpful in bringing us...

I am not typically a traveler who books tours in new cities -- I enjoy traveling on my own and exploring the local culture and food "on the ground". However, I had only a short time in Hyderabad and the Trip Advisor reviews were so positive I gave Detours a try. And they are as good, if not better, than... More
