Hyderabad City Crafts Tour
Duration: 5-6 hours
All days of the week
This is a private car tour to explore the traditional arts and crafts of Hyderabad.
We will visit the home of a family who are all engaged in ikat, block printing and screen printing. The unit is headed by an enterprising woman who has won a National Award for her work on ikat. We will also visit a zardosi (embroidery) unit, a lac bangle making unit, and a bidri (metalwork) workshop in the vibrant and busy bazaars around Charminar.
This tour provides ample opportunities for shopping - the workshops have their own attached shops nearby, and the bazars have almost any arts and crafts you're looking for.
If you have any other specific interests, please let us know in advance and we will try to plan it for you.
We will pick you up and drop you at your hotel.
