      Fantastic tour of the Kingdom of Diamonds
      Navin is so passionate and knowledgeable about Hyderbad’s history and culture, which really shines through the tours. Learning about Golconda’s architecture and history made me appreciate the ruins amongst which I was walking and really brought the past to life. 10/10 recommend! Thank you so much

      Interesting insight into the history of Hyderabad
      My husband and I did a private tour of the Golconda fort and Qutb Shahi tombs. It was an interesting experience and we enjoyed learning about the Qutb Shahi dynasty. Navin is a knowledgeable and engaging tour guide.

      Enriching, interesting ,informative and friendly tour
      For anyone who wants to tour Hyderabad and truly understand its history and culture, Navin's tours are a must !!! Had it not been for his tours, our trip to Hyderabad would have been a soulless journey. I had been to Hyderabad on an official visit and had a few spare days so took my elderly parents along so that they could tour the city. On the first day we all took the old city Charminar tour with Navin. His passion in sharing the history and culture of this city is so remarkable that it makes the entire tour so fascinating. So much so, that the next day when my parents went for the Golconda tour with him, I felt I was missing an important eye view of the city's history. But what makes it even more awesome is the sincerity with which he treats us. You feel like your spending time with a family member. And that left me at peace and anxious free even when my parents were touring in my absence. Infact he was so kind to offer a pickup and hotel transfer for my parents in my absence as I wasn't aware of any reliable transport service. And this was over and above the transport service for the tour. He also recommend many must try Hyderabadi dishes and suggested the places where we could get the same. Thankyou so much Navin for such a memorable experience!!!

      We were with this company in Hyderabad for three days and they were fabulous. Navin, our guide, was brilliant - an extremely entertaining and knowledgeable guide who brought history to life with his amazing story telling. He was incredibly helpful, organised and very funny. Couldn't recommend more highly and we will definitely use them again on future trips to Hyderabad.

      High tea
      Navin was a fabulous guide, obviously interested in his subject matter. Going through the tombs was informative and interactive. High tea at the lavish palace, turned hotel was lovely, a beautiful building and grounds with a fabulous view overlooking the city.

    Madhu was a great guide and I really enjoyed myself on this tour! My tour took place in the morning before things got too crowded, so it was not too crowded at all. Madhu was knowledgeable, friendly, and fun to tour with. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hyderabad!

    Currently in Hyderabad for two weeks with work from the UK but really only had Sunday to do something of my choosing so it had to be good. I wanted to see old Hyderabad, learn some history and experience a less corporate part of the city. This tour ticked all my boxes and exceeded my expectations. Navin really knows his stuff and it is super interesting. Explains it all really well. He knows all the good spots/angles for the best photos. Nice friendly guy. I opted for hotel pick and drop off and that all went smoothly. Driver was a nice chap also. Wish I had more time to do another one of his tours.

    Navin is a thoroughly modern man with a passion for history, discovery and all things Hyderabadi. The walking tour is a delight and the evening food tour is even better. If you’d like to get a little closer to real, street-level India, wander with Navin through some of the hidden backstreets or culinary gems of this historic city. Great fun and a wonderful companion and guide.

    A friend recommended Navin's tour to us and we weren't disappointed. Navin was great, explained everything thoroughly, guided us through interesting areas in the city center, was happy to take photos of our group, and even organized transfer for us from and to the hotel. We couldn't have got so much out of a morning without his help.

    I was in Hyderabad on a work trip and had some free time on the weekend to explore the city and decided to book this tour. I was very glad I did - Navin was an exceptional guide and super friendly!

    His knowledge and passion for Hyderabad history is unmatched and I learned so much in such a short period of time. He also provided some wonderful local recommendations and tips. I will recommend this tour to my colleagues who will visit Hyderabad in the future and to anyone who wants to learn more about this city, culture and history! Thank you again, Navin!

    Navin is an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of the history of this city is amazing. He can seperate the facts, the folklore and the religious connotation. Which makes it really interesting.

    He curated a tour to fit my asks. He talked at length about the culture, the significance of the region, the historic implications for the buildings. I would recommend a half day set aside for this experience at least. Also, the food choices: Yum!

    Navin is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. As we were guided along the sites he provided a crash course on Hyderabad's history and culture that really enhanced my understanding of the city and its unique place in India. Led us to some delicious tea and biscuits, and helped immensely with shopping. Superb tour and guide.

    Navin was super quick to respond to me once I reached out asking about a tour - and very flexible to schedule one in the afternoon, which was the only time I had free. He was also very understanding when we showed up late due to the crazy traffic! I went on this tour with three of my colleagues and it took about 3.5 hours. Navin is super knowledgable about Hyderabad and answered all our questions. We did a thorough tour of the palace and then did a walk about in the center - to see Charminar, get amazing chai, watch a bangle maker, etc. He made us feel very safe and led us the best way through the busy streets. I highly recommend Navin for anyone who would like to see the beautiful spots Hyderabad has to offer!
