Good professional guys to take a city tour. Guides are very knowledgeable. But make sure to bargain for a good deal and package since they offer various packages.

Kolkata is one of the cities on earth, where people around you will always try to help you when you need them. People are so cordial, polite and generous, you will see that the city excites you, every time you visit.

I booked the food tour, hoping to get to know more about the Bengali cuisine and get to know places you wouldn't find as a normal tourist. But when the guide arrived he had not been informed by the office what kind of tour I had booked and tried to persuade us the rest of the day to look at... More

We had booked the Bengali Cuisine Tour via Kolkata Magic. The guide was nice, had a lot of experince about Kolkata and tried to show us a lot. But since it was a cuisine tour I found the restaurant we ate in not very good (this was my first night in India, but afterwards we had eaten a lot better).... More

My daughter and I visited Kolkata because our family had lived in the area for five generations in the 1800. We had specific things we wanted to do and see and Delhi Magic provided guides that helped us with our specific wants but also had much knowledge and information to share. They took an interest in our particular stories and... More

I had a Kolkata Magic guide for a half day, and chose to see the Dakshineswar and Belar Math temples. My guide was extremely knowledgable, and told me the stories and origins of each temple. It was wonderful to really know the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of each edifice. But the real plus was that he also talked about the whole... More

I was in Kolkata on business. My schedule freed up for my last afternoon and I quickly sought to book a tour. I had had very good experiences with Mumbai Magic and Delhi Magic so I contacted Kolkata Magic literally 24 hours before the tour was to begin. I was not disappointed. The guide and driver retrieved me from my... More
