Guide profile:

Namaskaram (Hello) from your South Indian Tour Guide!

A Warm Welcome to Hyderabad, India.

I am a professional English-speaking licensed tour guide working from Hyderabad and live here. I was trained and licensed by Ministry of Tourism, Government of India. Tourism is my lifetime passion; I studied my bachelors and masters in tourism management and well versed in different kinds of tours like walking tours in heritage / historical / natural / rural locations, religious (temple / faith) tours, River Cruise Tours, Forest / Nature / Wildlife Tours, Buddhist tours, textile tours, tribal tours and Off Beat Coastal Andhra Tours.

I have been working for the past 11 years from Hyderabad for the tourists from different countries of the world as a tour guide / escort / tour manager. I am frequently hired as the local tour guide / escort for foreign tourist groups and FITs by many reputed travel companies for the sightseeing tours. 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 tourists. I would show you the way how local people live and different cultures here. I prepare customized and private itineraries / tours based on your area of interest 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.

What makes Hyderabad more interesting is that the New York Times' Travel list of 'The 41 Places to Go in 2011' carries Hyderabad on the 19th position, being described as a place of 'Dynastic grandeur in the heart of modern India. Our city Hyderabad is also now a fast developing South Indian city with world class medical facilities and super specialty hospitals and it is an ideal destination for medical tourism with reasonable prices for treatments.

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, Transindus and Greaves Travels etc to name a few. If you want your private tour to be customized, just send me an email so that I will make it suitable for you based on your availability of time, interests and preferences. Any questions about Hyderabad and South India, welcome to contact me. Please confirm my availability by mail. Thank you for sparing time to view my profile.

Have a wonderful trip.

Subbu is an excellent guide. He has deep knowledge of and appreciation for the rich history and extraordinary architecture of the city, and shares his information enthusiastically and clearly. He was also very flexible and tailored the tour to my expressed interest in historical sites. He took me to places I never would have known to visit on my own (the Paigah Tombs were amazing).

The car was excellent -- new Toyota minivan with good A/C and a skillful driver.

I will book with Subbu again!

Subbu's walking tour of the Old City will give you a view of Hyderabad that a tourist would never find on his or her own. One highlight was going into an abandoned palace and seeing how the squatters had taken over and were using the space. Subbu is a wonderful guide -- clear explanations, enthusiastic about the city, and patient with questions!

Subbu was an excellent guide. Our walking tour of the Old City was both interesting and informative. I would highly recommend him, and it was a pleasure spending the day with him.

Subbu provided a wonderful experience for my husband and me. He has a great deal of knowledge of Hyderabad. He took us to places that we could never know to visit. The most important, he made it stress free for us. A true professional tour guide. If you visit Hyderabad, you should contact him as your tour guide.

My wife and I spent two days in Hyderabad recently, in the excellent care of Mr.Naga Subrahmanyam(Subbu).

Mr. Subrahmanyam has a comprehensive understanding of the history and cultural features of his city and imparts his knowledge with enthusiasm, his reflections and explications are engaging and delivered with great clarity.

Subbu is not only exact with historical detail regarding dates, personages and incidents, he also involves his clients in a real appreciation of the romance and human el

Tour Guide Comment: It was a great pleasure to work for you. Many thanks for your appreciations.

If I could give a 100 as a score, I would. Naga Subrahmanyam, or Subu, as he likes to be called, gave me one of the very best days of my entire life. It was truly a memorable day as we walked the old city of Hyderabad. He helped me in communicating with locals and with local customs. I can't say enough good things about him.

I highly recommend him without hesitation.
