Tour Details

Start the tour early in the morning with a pickup from your hotel. Get acquainted with your English-speaking guide and drive to the majestic Golconda Fort, about 11 km from the city. Originally built as a mud fort, the complex has undergone changes through the centuries under the rule of the Bahmani Sultans and the Qutb Shahi dynasty. Learn about the acoustics of the building and the intricate water management system designed here. Your guide will explain the history of the fort and how it shaped the future of Hyderabad and its people.

At noon, head to the Qutub Shahi Tombs located close by. Erected in the memory of the rulers of the region, the impressive granite tombs, arches and columns are worth a visit. Stroll through the gardens and visit the exhibition to learn the significance of this landmark. Continue to Hyderabad's Old City, where you will visit the Chowmahalla Palace which was once home to the Nizams, reputed to be one of the richest families of India. As many as 7000 attendants were required to maintain the opulent palace. Some of the noteworthy sections in this Palace include a water fountain, vintage cars, intricate carvings, glass chandeliers and the grand durbar hall.

At 3:00 PM, head to the Salarjung Museum, home to the world’s largest one-man art collection. Nawab Mir Yusuf Ali Khan Salar Jung III (1889–1949) who was the Prime Minister of the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad, spent a fortune over thirty-five years to build this collection. The collection ranges from 2nd century BC to the early 20th century AD and contains work from different cultures such as Greek, Roman, Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Christian, and Islamic.

The final destination is Charminar, a monument that is symbolic of the city of Hyderabad. It was built in 1591 by Mohammed Quli Qutb Shahi, the fifth sultan of the Qutub Shahi dynasty to commemorate the end of a deadly plague attack of the city. Hear of the legends of this place such as the presence of a secret tunnel underneath Charminar which connected to Golconda Fort, created as a means of escape for the royal family at times of distress. At the end of the tour, be dropped back to your hotel.
