I did the Old city food walk and loved it. I had an amazing guide, Paula, who shared her great knowledge with me about the city and the food. We walked the old streets and went where I wouldn't have gone without a guide. The food was excellent and it was great to see it in the real environment. Paula... More

If you want to get a true flavour of Hyderabad DeTours is the place to go. Jonty and her team combine tours "off the beaten track" with a very open and personal view on the city and the Indian way of living. We did multiple tours with DeTours and they were all unique and excellent experiences. For example we cooked... More

My husband and I spent a fabulous morning enjoying the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Old Hyderabad. Paula from Detours shared her extensive knowledge of Hyderabad's fascinating history and cuisine and graciously answered our many questions. We found her to be a knowledgeable and charming guide. Our experience of Hyderabad is richer for the insights about the local culture... More

This one day, private custom tour was the best part of my trip to India. Our tour guide, Kavitha, was so warm and friendly and knowledgeable. I could not have asked for a better tour or guide.

Detours organised a bespoke tour on very short notice, and all the reviews are absolutely accurate. We were collected at our hotel by Kavitha and commenced our tour in a comfortable air-conditioned car (with a safe, excellent driver). Not only did Kavitha share maps and historical and cultural information with us as we traveled to each site, but she also... More

The standout highlight of a recent visit to Hyderabad, itself an interesting city with great cuisine, was the time we spent with Paula from the imaginative Detours company. (Thank you, Lonely Planet, for recommending it.) After ascertaining our interests and backgrounds, Paula and the very good driver took us, in a lovely unhurried way, to some wonderful places: not just... More

Jonty was kind enough to accommodate me last minute and allow me to join a food walk in the Old City and homemade biryani experience that she had organized for two other business travelers. I am thrilled that it worked out, as it turned out to be one of the highlights of my 2+ week business trip to India. The... More

We had an absolutely perfect visit, we just regret that we didn't have at least one more day, as Detours India offers some wonderful experiences we didn't have time for. We visited the fort, temples and several wildly colorful and exciting markets. Hyderabad is a wonderful city and with Kavitha introducing us for the first time to the area, we... More
