    Even though it was hot,I would say the climb to Golconda Fort was worth it,not only for the view but also for the fantastic tour given to me by John Wilson. I tried the traditional biriyani and the best part was for me when i went to Bangle Street :. Its a must tour for anyone who wants to get a quick tour of the city.Thanks again to John and my splendid driver Samad!
