I can't rate Manjit's tour highly enough. This was a fabulous opportunity to experience Old Calcutta through the eyes of a local. The Kaleidoscope tour is a sensory overload and an unforgettable experience. He is knowledgeable about the history and cultures in the area, and shared with us anecdotes that helped make that human connection to his neighbourhood. I'd do... More

There is so much to one's home that remain hidden unless looked for! I have always known that despite living in Kolkata all my life, there is a lot to my city that I do not know about or have not experienced. So when one of my friends told me about Manjit and his tours, I was more than excited... More

(Kaleidoscope Tour on 3 Feb, Goddess Beckons Tour on 30 Jan and Hooghly’ Flower Tour on 29 Jan) Calcutta Photo Tours offers the best sightseeing + photographing experience. Its tours are very intensive and rich. It shows Calcutta’s real local life style and how colorful the city is. We also can communicate with the locals. They are all very friendly.... More

The best cup of 'chai' I have ever had was on this tour courtesy of our warm hearted, deeply knowledgable and engaging guide Manjit. A local himself he knows everybody and we were welcomed wherever we went. From the bustle of the street to quiet oases to delightful foodie venues this was an unforgettable experience. Thank you Manjit!!! :)

During a recent visit to Kolkata I spent a morning wandering about neighbourhoods/ lane ways with Manjit. A delightful slice of life experience. Very positive insights into the diversity of this city and how people basically get along. A pleasure indeed as well as an uplifting experience.

This was my first trip to India - I had arranged to arrive a day in advance of my tour group in Kolkata (Calcutta). Prior to leaving, I contacted Manjit of Clacutta Photo Tours to arrange for a tour. Manjit was fantastic - he outlined what tour he thought would be best and which would avoid duplication with the city... More

I was among the first reviewers to write about this service on Tripadvisor back in 2012 (and I first met Manjit in 2010, when he worked with another organisation). I wanted to update my experience based on 3 walking tours with him in January 2017. I took a group of students to Kolkata and we did 2 tours with Manjit,... More

Manjit was the perfect guide - relaxed and friendly, full of knowledge about the past and present of Calcutta, with intelligent and interesting insights about the city's future too. Always thoughtful and ready to recommend a photo opportunity - excellent choice of snack stops too! We had a brilliant time and learned a lot about this amazing city and cannot... More
