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

My husband and I spent a fabulous morning enjoying the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Old Hyderabad. Paula from Detours shared her extensive knowledge of Hyderabad's fascinating history and cuisine and graciously answered our many questions. We found her to be a knowledgeable and charming guide. Our experience of Hyderabad is richer for the insights about the local culture... More

This one day, private custom tour was the best part of my trip to India. Our tour guide, Kavitha, was so warm and friendly and knowledgeable. I could not have asked for a better tour or guide.

Detours organised a bespoke tour on very short notice, and all the reviews are absolutely accurate. We were collected at our hotel by Kavitha and commenced our tour in a comfortable air-conditioned car (with a safe, excellent driver). Not only did Kavitha share maps and historical and cultural information with us as we traveled to each site, but she also... More

The standout highlight of a recent visit to Hyderabad, itself an interesting city with great cuisine, was the time we spent with Paula from the imaginative Detours company. (Thank you, Lonely Planet, for recommending it.) After ascertaining our interests and backgrounds, Paula and the very good driver took us, in a lovely unhurried way, to some wonderful places: not just... More

Jonty was kind enough to accommodate me last minute and allow me to join a food walk in the Old City and homemade biryani experience that she had organized for two other business travelers.
