“I took the Old City walk and it turned out to be an extremely memorable experience. Azam was fantastic! I especially loved the Choumalla Palace. The grand opulence of the Nizams is here to see! The Charminar is another must see- they're an incredible feat of engineering. We ended the tour at a bazar that was glowing with pearls and bangles!! It was a great experience overall, one filled with the history of the place and a fun bazar experience! Would recommend this as a "must-try" for anyone visiting Hyderabad.”
