What to expect
You will be picked up at your hotel in Hyderabad at 9:00 AM for morning departure or 2:00 PM for afternoon departure. After pickup you will be transferred to Golkonda Fort. Golkonda Fort derives its name from a Telugu word "Golla Konda" meaning "shepherd’s hill". After the downfall of Baihmanis in AD1518, the fort became the capital of the Qutb Shahi kings (AD1518-1687). Golkonda Fort was built on a 400 ft. high hill and has three lines of massive fortification walls one within the other as well as eight imposing gateways. The well-planned township of Golconda located within the fort was one of the splendid cities famous during the medieval world for its extensive trade in gems and diamonds as attested to by foreigners including Marco Polo. Later you will visit the Qutub Shahi Tombs. The tombs are domed structures built on a square base surrounded by pointed arches and have a distinctive style that blends Persian, Pashtun and Hindu. After visiting the dorm, you will be taken back to your hotel.

Gorconda Fort Half day tour
Feb 2020 • Friends
Thanks. Harsh. We had great guidance and could feel about Kings era of Qurab Shahi. He also helped us to get beer and sanitary mask which is not easy for us to find in Hyderabad.

Excellent Guided Tour
Nov 2019
Mr Ranga from Garuda Tourism was great in arranging the tour over phone. A well worth half day tour. Our guide, Mr John, was great, very professional and well versed. Started at the Fort and then took us to the Tombs. Quite a hike to the top of the Fort. Great view. Mr John walked us through the history and the architecture of the Fort and the Tombs, the rulers and the city. Enjoyed it. The car and driver was excellent too. Great service over all. Will definitely use the services for Ranga and John the next time we are in Hyderabad to see the rest of the place.

Stunning views
Nov 2019
On a business trip to Hyderabad, I had some time to do some sightseeing at the weekend, so booked on a half-day tour of the Fort and Tombs. The tombs are currently being refurbished, so there was a lot of construction work going on and we got there just as it opened, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Our guide, John, explained the history of the tombs and was very knowledgeable. Next up was the fort. Although it was quite a climb to the top, it was well worth it, with spectacular views, great architecture and impressive design features from centuries ago. All in all, an excellent tour, with a very professional guide.

Well worth 1/2 Day. Great with Guide
I had a day on my own while in Hyderabad on business. I didn’t want to just hang out hotel and work so did tour from Garuda Tourism through hotel mobile app. Had guide named Naga and was well worth it. He was knowledgeable and easy to be with. I was lucky that I was the only one on the tour but booking site said up to four. Picked up on time. Van clean. Fort was a hike to top. 360 steps. You need to be in fairly good shape to get there but worth it. Wear comfortable shoes!!! Tombs were great to see. 6 generations of past kings. Site seems under renovation so tricky walking. Buy optional camera pass for 50 rupees. You’ll want to take photos.
