First of all I want to thank Manjit for being such an exciting person with great knowledge about the city of Joy, Kolkata. My purpose of this tour was photography about the city and that exactly what I got form it. I am eagerly looking for the next tour with Manjit. Thanks, Suvo

This is a must when visiting Calcutta! Manjit is super friendly and knows a lot about the history of Calcutta as well as photography techniques, which he is more than happy to share with those of us not in the know. He is patient and gives plenty of time for you to explore at your own pace, all the while... More

Being a true- blue Calcuttan, I would never have thought that I required a guided tour of my own city. Manjit was to prove me wrong! We walked around friendly neighbourhoods of north Calcutta, quaint places of worship, ancient buildings. Manjit gave us a general history of the place and amazing snippets about the area that I had never known.... More

My sister and I took the Culture Kaleidoscope tour with Manjit and he surpassed our expectations by a long shot (despite having read loads of positive reviews before-hand). He was very knowledgeable about all the stops on our tour and gave us insight on history, famous sites, and every-day routines that happen along the route. He answered all our questions,... More

Me and my wife we took the Cultural Kaleidoscope tour,which was a great choice. I contacted Manjit with email and he always replied very fast. The tour started 6am which was very good because that time you can see the city waking up and it's not hot at all.It was really nice that Manjit told all the stories behind the... More

From the very beginning, Manjit was so helpful, enthusiastic and patient in helping me organise my tours in Calcutta. As my parents are originally from there, he wanted to make sure I really felt the city. I think he knew exactly what I was after! I organised a private car tour through him to all the old spots/schools of my... More

A huge thank you to Manjit! We were pretty overwhelmed by Kolkata when we arrived and probably wouldn't have ventured out alone! We took three tours and we saw parts of the city we would never have experienced and learnt so much about the history and culture. The Goddess beckons tour was probably my favourite. We also had a lot... More

It is difficult to add any more superlatives to the many that Manjit deservedly has already on this site but I'll try. I took a couple of tours with Manjit and my perception was, first and foremost, Manjit understands people. Both tourists and fellow Kolkatans. Through this understanding he allowed me to connect with the city, it's people and the... More
