Hyderabad city tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
Hi!

We had a lovely Hyderabad city tour. We had covered Golconda Fort, Qutub Shahi tombs, Birla Mandir and more. Golconda Fort is huge and definitely worth the visit.Also, the Qutub Shahi tombs are well built and once the history is known, it becomes interesting to visit these sites.

Birla Mandir, here in South is beautifully made and has carved marble structures. It's clean and properly maintained.

We thankyou Mr. John - our tour guide to explain us everything about the above sites passionately and in detail. He has vast knowledge about history and make sure that the clients understand it properly.

We, thankyou 5 senses for the wonderful Hyderabad tour.

A day in Hyderabad.
Mar 2021
The Golconda fort has a chequered history from the 12th century to the 19th century. The history is rich with intricate power struggles interspersed with architectural commissions of the Kakatiya [Hindu] Bahmani, Qutub shahi and later the Nizams.
It was fascinating to note architectural similarities with modern day Iran’s architecture with the stunning view from the top of the fort reminding me of the ancient ruins of Rome! The tombs of the Qutub shahi kings are worth a visit as the architecture is grand and is a mix of Persian and local influences.I was pleasantly surprised to find two tombs of the physicians of the time [Geelani] and a couple of tombs of the dancing girls of the time amongst the tombs of kings and queens!
I skipped the palaces and rushed through the Salar Jung museum as I was short on time.
John [the guide] was excellent .His knowledge of the complex history of the region and his ability to relate it to the monuments was par excellence. Despite 27 years as a guide, he still remains passionate in his job. He was punctual, respectful and mindful of the fact that I would need frequent water breaks in the 40degree C heat .
For a day, John transported me back in time to marvel at the spirit and endeavours of eight centuries of rulers in the Deccan [anglicised name for Dakshin-south].
Please carry your water as there are no water arrangements at the top of the fort. The fort is being repaired in sections and could do with more signages and tourist information plates.

The city tour of Hyderabad was a great experience. Our guide john was a lovely person. He was an expert in heritage of this old citya nd we enjoyed his stories about the Nizams and ther opulent lifestyle. We also found the Golkonda fort to be one of a kind. The engineering and acoustics were fantastic. Another highlight was the Salarjung museum with masterpieces like the veiled Rebecca and Mephistopheles. I would highly recommend this tour.

Unforgettable tour of the city
Feb 2021
The Hyderabad city tour was an excellent experience. John was both knowledgeable and entertaining. He had an amazing understanding of the heritage of this city and made it interesting with his sense of humour! Charminar was picture perfect and we came to know about the legends behind the reasons for building it. Golkonda Fort was easily the highlight of the day with its magnificent acoustics. We also enjoyed the Palace of the Nizams/ What incredible wealth and opulence. Salarjung Museum had a amazing collection with our favourite being the veiled Rebecca.
The best part of the tour was the way our guide brought in context and also told us about life in todays Hyderabad. Overall, this was easily our best tour during our India visit.

A great way to see Hyderabad in one day.
Sep 2020
It was an awesome day touring the old city of Hyderabad. The Golconda Fort was amazing, be prepared for some climbing, but worth every step. The Paigah Tombs with their marvelous carvings and motifs in floral designs and inlaid mosaic tile-works, the tombs are exquisite to walk around. My guide John was very knowledgeable and friendly, a true asset to the tour business. Thank-you.

Our tour started quite early in the morning to avoid the crowds, particularly in Golconda Fort. Some of the stops where pearls and jewellery was on sale was of no interest to us.

This is how to do Hyderabad in one day
What an amazing day touring the best old town Hyderabad has to offer.

My guide for the day, Azam, was a real treasure. Equal Parts Tour Guide, Historian, Art critic, bodyguard, negotiator, man about town, photojournalist and foodie he was the perfect guide to the chaos that is Hyderabad.

The Fort is spectacular far surpassing my expectations, the central old town, bangle market and simply just driving from point to point all made for a truely unforgettable day.

Thank you for sharing you city with me!

Old city walk

Azam was a great guide. I enjoyed the walk through the old city of Hyderabad with him. He regaled me with stories of the times of Nizams and Paigahs. It was a enjoyable experience going to the old palaces and imagine the life in one of the richest places during its time. I would highly recommend this walk for anyone with 3 hours in hyderabad

City of Pearls Experience, a full day tour of Hyderabad
Oct 2018 • Solo
Thanks for that very good trip around Hyderabad. Azim pick up me directly at the Hotel with some new car with AC it was helpful today about the heating. From the first moment he was a very good communicator and shared a lot of background information around the tour to. His knowledge was very high and he shared any history and brand new information quit easy to me. I have learned a lot of things today. The lunch break was in a very good location where only locals where, it tasted very good and ten times better as where the tourists are. Thanks again Azim for these nice day. Take care.
