We were very lucky to find Jonty who was not only informative, extremely helpful and flexible but also an excellent guide. We spent two days with her and can only say we learnt more and visited more places than we could have done on our own. She obviously has a good rapport with many of the shop owners and street...

I booked this the day before. Myself and a colleague went on a private walking tour. Christina knew her history and moved at a nice pace. We went to a local, busy tea shop (which we won't have done on our own!) - very interesting. The sites were impressive and fascinating. Define lay worth going on if you are in... More

Jonty accomodated our last minute booking and took us on a combined food tasting and old town visit, including Charmahalla palace. Although we only sampled typical Indian snacks and tea at the beginning, we declined further food sampling offered towards the end of the tour as we were amply fed (culmination of 12 days of buffets in a row!).

I met with Jonty and took the tour with Paula—and both are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable people to know in Hyderabad. I loved my food tour in the Old City, and I look forward to returning to Hyderabad and taking some more tours!

From the minute she greeted us at the airport to the minute we parted company nothing was to much trouble for Jonty and her team. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for Hyderabad is infectious and the level of her preparation is without equal. Her style imparted detailed knowledge of the city's history, geography and politics without any form of intellectual superiority.... More

We booked two tours with Detours in July 2016 and had a great time. The first tour of Charminar and the surrounding area was with our son and daughter-in-law. We visited Charminar, a bangle manufacturing shop, a fabric printing shop, and other sites in the area. It was a walking tour and Christina did an excellent job! One of the... More

For our visit to Hyderabad, we booked one of the 3 walking tours that Detours offers. We met for the Old City walking tour at Charminar and proceeded to get a wonderful experience of the area. Christina was our guide and she was fantastic! She was knowledgable, helpful and very hospitable. We had such a great time with her, that... More

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
