Dear Guests!! A Warm Welcome to Hyderabad city.
I am a professional English-speaking freelance tour guide working from Hyderabad. I was trained and licensed by Ministry of Tourism, Government of India. Tourism is my lifetime passion; I have done my bachelors and masters in tourism management and well versed in historical tours, architectural tours, religious (temple / faith) tours, Buddhist tours, rural tours, textile tours and tribal tours.
I have been working for the past 11 years from Hyderabad for the tourists from different countries of the world. I also have very good experience in tourism consulting sector and worked for some of my guests as an interpreter / business assistant for their trips in Hyderabad and so on. I was honoured with “Best Tourist Guide” award by Andhra Pradesh Tourism (state government) in 2010.
On a personal level, your time spent with me will be informative, interesting and enjoyable. I’ll tell you the stories, myths and legends that you never read in the guide books. My key words are inform, interest and entertain. My experience as a tour guide makes it easy to understand the needs and expectations of my tourists. I would show you the way how local people live and different cultures here.
I always prefer to prepare individual, customised and private itineraries to my guests and usually ask them about their area of interests and ideas. I’d be delighted to be your guide while your stay in Hyderabad. So, join me for an unforgettable tour, be it one day or ten days tour. My commitment and passion as a guide makes your trip a memorable experience.
So far I worked for the guests of reputed IT companies in the world like Microsoft, Google, Dell, Infosys and travel companies like Audley, A&K, Thomas Cook, Cox & Kings, Peirce & Leslie and Greaves Travels etc to name a few. If you want your private tour to be customized, please just send me an email so that I will make it suitable for you based on your availability of time, interests and preferences. Contact me for information regarding your travel to Hyderabad and places around and please confirm my availability by mail or by phone.
Have a safe and wonderful trip.
