We felt very safe and comfortable the entire day. The cold-drinks in the car were a much needed treat after a day of shopping and sightseeing!

  • A very professionally run cooking class - beautiful Hyderabadi cuisine, so flavorsome and aromatic with exotic spices. Highly motivational to try out recipes even for a beginner like me. Highly recommended for genuine Hyderabadi culinary experience in a warm and a friendly class environment. The best part of this cooking class was - going into a Hyderabadi home.

    Jebby Devadason, Victoria, Australia (Taste of Hyderabad - cooking traditional Hyderabadi cuisine)
  • We visited Hyderabad to attend a wedding, and were lucky enough to have this tour. Preeti has been such a caring tour guide, best that we have ever met. Flexible and always taking care of our group. Her deep knowledge about the city's history was amazing. So much laughter and fun. It was great to see the big attractions but also see the small cultural aspects that make the city unique. The careful selection of food options for lunch blew our minds.

  • It was a great tour, which we enjoyed very much. We had the opportunity to sense the local flavor of Hyderabad. Preeti is an extraordinary guide, educated, knowledgeable and friendly. 

    Enrique and Lucia Zambrano - Monterrey, N.L. Mexico
  • Wonderful trip. We had a great time - saw many things + places we would never have seen on our own. Really enjoyed seeing the artisans at work - the bracelet making and the embroidery. Loved the cookies at Nimrah (definitely one best bakery in town!) Preeti, you made everything seamless and took care of all the little details. All that is much appreciated. We also enjoyed the huge lunch at Paradise, lovely biryani and kebabs. Thank you! 

    Guests from Vancouver, Canada
  • Excellent tour! Preeti is a dedicated, patient, talented, courteous, and enthusiastic guide. She is a historian, conservator, history buff and aesthete. I had great fun and gained a great friend while touring the lanes of a timeless city. Highly recommend the tour. Meeting Preeti is a great privilege.

    Vikram Raghavan- Chennai, India
  • Thank you Preeti for an enjoyable trip around Hyderabad. It was just like going on a trip with an old friend because you made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. Will definitely recommend for all my friends to have the experience too!

    Sarah Khalilah Abdul Rahman - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • We had a great tour of the Old City. Preeti is very knowledgeable and was able to share that with us. This was our third tour (as we have had several visitors) and this was the best by far! Seeing the city in early AM was actually a treat - no crowd actually allowed us to see the tiny merchants especially. Loved the focus on Indian foods! Perfect tour well recommended!!

    Mike and Anne Gaines, NJ, USA (expats in Hyderabad)
  • Excellent tour of the local sites in Hyderabad. Lunch was also very good. Preeti did a great job thinking about all the little things we could need to make the tour comfortable and enjoyable. Preeti was an amazing tour guide. She made the whole experience fun. We will definitely have her guide us again on our next trip to Hyderabad.

    Brian and Kate Thornton, Naples, FL, USA
  • What a joy! Preeti was so friendly. Took us all around. Was flexible with what shops we went to. Felt taken in and cared for. We did a couple things differently than normal and Preeti rolled with it. Everything went really well and felt like we got a feel for the city and the cuisine. 

    Laura and Ben Mott, Baltimore, MD, USA
  • This was the best tour I've ever had of Hyderabad and I live here! What a surprise for me to learn a little more about this city after all these years. Preeti is a lovely woman, very personable but in an unassuming way. She was completely professional, was prepared with little things, knew some unusual facts about Hyderabad and had a professional driver. Perhaps the best part of the tour was that she took us to many places behind the scenes that no one gets to see or get entry into. This made for a more personal, educational and unique tour. I highly recommend her services. A very enjoyable day thanks to Preeti.

    Tracy Anumolu, USA
  • Lovely morning spent in Old City, Charminar. Very professional, informative and most importantly FUN! Must do in Hyderabad!

    Evelyn Koganti, Expat in Hyderabad
  • It was fantastic. Absolutely authentic sightseeing tour! We will definitely repeat this next possible time. It was a great day, and it was very nice with you Preeti! (visited Chowmahalla palace, Charminar, Mecca masjid, Laad bazaar, tuk-tuk ride, Shilparamam)

    Sarah Ackerman, Jakob Beirowski, Anne Poremba, Christine Klaus - Frankfurt, Germany
  • Preeti is a knowledgeable, warm and passionate lady to spend time with and experience amazing Hyderabad! A special time visiting the Old City on International Women's Day. Our experience was so rich, seeing traditional life in areas that we would not normally have the opportunity to experience. A huge thank you!

    Cass Coulston, UK
  • Excellent tour of Hyderabad!  Very informative and tailored to my needs.  Would highly recommend!

    Clive Dodimead, Oxford, England, UK
  • Very nice day! Nice experience in the Lad bazaar market, and in the streets. Nice to have a person who knows the city, to live real experience. Lovely time for all the family!! (visited the Golkonda Fort, Qutub Shahi tombs, Chowmahalla palace and Paigah Tombs).

    Agnes Francou, France
  • A really enjoyable trip.  Thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the weaving and the food.  Also enjoyed the palm wine!

    Tony Nuttal, London, UK
  • Thank you again for your excellent guidance during our stay in Hyderabad.  We were pleased to have your detailed knowledge of the popular destinations (such as exactly where to find the great echoes at Golconda Fort!).  It mattered even more that you could introduce us to places we would not have known were special: the festive night-time atmosphere at the monolithic Buddha in Hussain Sagar, the gleaming Birla temple surrounded by dark boulders, the chandeliers and carved stone lattices at Chowmahalla Palace -- to name just a few.   What wonderful things you found for us to eat - an infinite variety of chaat. Thank you so much for working with us to find places which suited our interests yet still gave us a feel for Hyderabad's history, culture, and sights!

    Mrs & Mr Bennett Battaile, Portland, Oregon, USA
  • Interesting ikkat weaving factory; lots to see and learn. Great day out! (visiting the weaving village)

    Vanessa Heard, Expat in Hyderabad from UK
  • Thank you Preeti so much. You are both a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and this made for a thoroughly enjoyable tour. We saw parts of Hyderabad we would never have found without you. We also have a much greater appreciation and understanding of the history and people who made Hyderabad the city it is today. We all had a great day. Thank you again!

    Jo Hart, Nottingham, England
  • Thank you for a truly special experience of Hyderabad. Because of your deep knowledge and love of the city, we were able to gain an inspiring experience and insight, in a short time. We were very comfortable and well looked after. Look forward to the next trip.

    Dr S Joseph & Mrs Shelly, Newcastle upon Tyne (UK)
  • Preeti's tour was amazing. From visiting Charminar to seeing artisans at work, it was well organised and so informative. We loved it. What a day. We saw so much and were so kindly and warmly treated. A memorable day and an overwhelmingly beautiful to learn about Hyderabad and its culture. We spent a full day touring different sites and we really felt that we got to experience the culture.

    Kelly Nelson, Lisa Lauterbach, Julie Shirazi, Sharyn Brener - USA
  • One of the best tour guides we have ever booked in all our many country tours. Great communication and planning. Very lovely and a fun tour. So much appreciated. Very well organised. Thank you so much for the wonderful tour of Hyderabad. We enjoyed seeing the places and all was perfectly timed.

    Stacey & David Counce (Dallas); Natalie & Brandon (New York) - USA
  • We had a fantastic time in Hyderabad (four days). You are unique in many ways. You went that extra mile to make our holidays special, which made all the difference.

    Dr Vimala & Dr Gopinath - London, UK
  • My husband & I spent two days in Hyderabad with Preeti. She is by far one of the best guides we have ever had. In addition to bringing us to the popular attractions on Hyderabad, we went to many markets visiting shops that make wedding dresses with hand-made appliques, bangles and silver foil for bakery items and sweets. We also got to tour the kitchen of a Irani tea-house to see the products being baked in the wood-burning oven.

    Maureen Richardson - Baysville, Canada1
  • We had booked a 15 member party for a day long trip of old city and various landmarks. Preeti had arranged a bus and made it very comfortable for my kids and nieces including my parents. Preeti is a great host and very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip including the sumptuous lunch at Shadab. We look forward to another trip next year.

    Irfan & Aneela Haider - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
  • A great experience to spend 3 days touring Hyderabad with Preeti. Her knowledge of the area and ability to find and to introduce us to things going on in the area is amazing, we certainly found a taste of real India and had the opportunity to experience places and people we never have otherwise found. A real gem of the tour and so well looked after. Thank you Preeti.

    Mike and Jason Sanderman - Southampton, England
  • Thank you so much for an amazing tour. It really feels that I have seen the 'proper' Hyderabad. All very well run and I felt safe all times.

    Samantha Dumiak & Chloe Landucci - Cambridge, UK
