The city comes alive
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.

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.

Great walking tour in the city
Nov 2019
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!

Excellent tour
Oct 2019
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.

Authenticity!

Navin was great - it was so great to have someone lead us through the City. He is so knowledgable and is able to distinguish fact from fiction! Connected us to local craftsman for some shopping and there were no commissions in the process! Passionate about the work he does and make the tour fun, educational and flexible!

Amazing Heritage Tour in HYD
Feb 2019 • Solo
Navin came to pick me up at the hotel with the driver as agreed, we spent the whole morning and afternoon together. We did explore and visited the classic tourist spots but we also spent time doing what locals do and most importantly Navid did a lot of research on the history behind monuments and the dynasties. He is very passionate and engaged and he transfer that excitement to you while exploring places which keep memories old many centuries. We tried local foods and we had to change itinerary last min because one of the place I wanted to view was fully booked. He was available and flexible to accommodate my needs. Can't wait to do part 2 of the tour many thanks again! Daniele

ABSOLUTR MUST in Hyderabad
Jan 2019 • Solo
Had such a great time with Navin on the city of pearls tour.

He was personable but also so passionate about history, and could answer all of my questions extensively.

The tour was well paced and covered all the essentials of the old city on great depth.

Would definitely recommend a HWC tour to anyone considering it.

Great experience in Hyderabad!
Dec 2018 • Solo
Great tour and even better tour guide! Navin was the perfect tour guide for this busy city. As a solo female traveler new to India, I was a little hesitant to walk the city on my own. Navin was amazing - meeting me at my car with a bottle of water in hand.

We toured Charminar in detail, walking around the monument and then scaled the steps to the first floor which had great views of the city. Then had some Irani chai and biscuits near the city center. Walked to Chowmahalla Palace and toured the grounds in great detail. And finally toured the bangle bazaar where we saw bangles being made.

Navin was a great tour guide, not only navigating the crowds in the old city but very knowledgeable about the history of Hyderabad and it's culture. He also knew all the best tourist photo spots and took pictures for me! I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone, great conversation and the perfect way to view some of the highlights of old Hyderabad!
