I am a resident of Kolkata and it is perhaps slightly shameful that I needed Manjit of Calcutta Photo Tours, to show me places that I had never seen before, and in some cases, had not even heard of before. I took the Culture Kaleidoscope Tour, and two of the things that instantly struck me were Manjit's obvious love for... More

We only a short time available in kolkata and wanted to immerse ourselves in some way in the real kolkata. This is what the 4 hours with CPT made possible. A lot of fun was had but the quirky locations and cultural insights were top shelf.

Early morning, clock strucks 6 am in Kolkata - you still wonder why you have woken up so early on a Saturday or Sunday morning … until you see the special light and ambience that Kolkata surrounds at these early hours of the day – and then there is Manjit with his positive, enthusiastic attitude which is just contagious even...

A friend and I visited Calcutta (where we've been before) and saw Calcutta like we had never seen it. We very luckily signed up with Manjit from Calcutta Photo Tours - for a walking tour, and the photography was a bonus. We took the tour that focused on the different ethnic backgrounds represented in a particular part of Calcutta. The... More

Visited all the tourist places before...it was good. But this tour was excellent! Manjit´s knowledge of the area, the city, the people and its culture is formidable. We had an amazing experience walking through narrow streets and markets where no other tourists go and managed to get some of the best photos I have from my 2 months in India.... More

It was a pleasure to join Manjit on this wonderful tour of the cultural aspects of Calcutta. He was extremely helpful in arranging the right tour for me and gave expert advice about some questions I had before I even booked. We had a very relaxed and informative time on the tour and I enjoyed that Manjit knew several people... More

First time in Calcutta, and decided to call manjit for a photo tour! He said there was not going to be a typical phototour available that day, but I decided to go anyway. Will never regret that decision. He took the group to places I would had never thought of visiting by myself. Great expertise of the area, great advices... More

With the help and expert guidance of Manjit we were able to see and feel how the people of Kolkata live. We started our tour at 6am, Manjit was on time and explained to us all of what we were to expect throughout the day. Once we got into the market it really was an experience, never have i found...

Manjit and I were friends through Facebook cos of photography, even before we met. So it had always been my desire to see Calcutta through someone who cherishes and loves it's culture and heritage so much. The photo tours according to me are the best way to experience and click the city. Manjit is someone who takes you around places... More
