Description

The day-long tour begins around 10 AM with a pick-up. Hop on the ride to Golconda Fort, a granite-built fortress from the Qutub Shahi dynasty's period. Listen to your guide as he spills knowledge on this fortress. Throughout history this region has been known for its miraculous mines & diamonds - be it Kohinoor or the Hope diamond. Although over the years diamond mines have become inactive.


Your destination will be the nearby Qutub Shahi Tombs which includes seven tombs of Qutub Shahi kings that ruled over two centuries. From there, you will be taken to Mecca Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India. It is believed that the soil of this mosque was brought from the holy Mecca city.


After sightseeing at the mosque, you will be served lunch at the local restaurant. Enjoy your fresh meal before heading to your next destination i.e. Charminar, the icon of Hyderabad. It is perceived that this Minar was built as a sign of victory over the plague around 450 years ago. See the beautiful work of limestone, granite, & marble at this historical site.


Next, you will visit the Salar Jung Museum, the 3rd biggest museum in India. This museum houses the largest one-man collection of antiques in the world by Mir Yusuf Ali Khan popularly known as Salar Jung III, an art collector & also the then Prime Minister of Hyderabad Deccan during seven Nizam's reign.


Following this, your driver will take you to Chowmahalla Palace, the former residence of Nizams of Hyderabad. Here you will come across a mixture of architectural styles (Rajasthani, European, along Persian). At last, you will be escorted to Hussain Sagar, a beautiful heart-shaped lake perfect for spending a nice evening. Spend a wonderful time at the nearby NTR garden area where a boat ride is also awaiting you. After a sweet & calm boat ride you will be sent back to your hotel.

Top City Tour in Hyderabad 👌🏼

August 24, 2023

The tour covered all the main attractions and it includes hotel pick up and drop off, in addition to an authentic delicious Hyderabad lunch. The highlight of the tour was the amazing tour guide: Komar Vaspari, he was very well informed and cultured about the history of Hyderabad and its attractions / monuments etc. he was happy to custom tailor the tour to your requirements. I highly recommend this tour if it’s your first time in Hyderabad! 👌🏼
