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

I took a tour with Manjit on my first day in Calcutta and thoroughly enjoyed it. He has great humour and showed me the hustle-and-bustle of the backstreets of Calcutta that I never would have seen otherwise. Plus we tried some delicious street food! Highly recommend doing one of his tours and am keen to do more!

Every year when I visit Kolkata I spend what I think is going to be a few hours and ends up being a whole day with Manjit. I'm not interested in photography but all his other knowledge of food, literature, architecture and gossip. Kolkata is an absolutely fantastic city and unfairly maligned. Manjit knows everything and everyone in Kolkata, loves... More

5 stars, no question. Manjit gave us a fascinating insight into his home town, and had endless patience as I kept getting distracted and disappearing to take yet another photograph. His passion and enthusiasm are contagious. I'd recommend it to everyone, whether you are into photography or not, as it takes you away from the usual 'tourist trail' and gives... More

No idea what to expect, but from the off this was an un-missable experience. There can be no better way to see 'under the skin' of areas this great city. Manjit entertained us from start to finish, and was a most knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. He made us feel at home in his city...knew most of the people in the... More
