We booked the morning European Calcutta tour with Manjit based on the No 1 rating from Trip advisor and we enjoyed it so much we immediately asked if he could fit us in for another tour (cultural kaleidoscope) before we left. Manjit immediately put us at ease and his tours mix just the right level of historical detail with jokes... More

Manjit has shown us places I've never noticed before as a Calcuttan. Places and temples, I never knew existed. I was pleasantly surprised to take a walk along Ezra street and learn the history behind the Jewish names. And this was just one of the 7 cultures covered. To find out more, book a tour with him. I would definitely... More

Manjit managed to make Kolkata my favourite city in India (so far!)! His Culture Kaleidoscope tour was supposed to only last 3 hours but we spent a good 5+ hours exploring the different ethnically diverse neighbourhoods of Kolkata. The extra time was mostly due to having to pause a lot because of the Monsoon-like rains but also because of the... More

I have visited Kolkata many times, but the Cultural Tour was without a doubt, the best and most fun experience of my many trips there. For some, Kolkata may not be the easiest city to fall in love with, but a tour with Manjit will make you feel otherwise. A 6.30am start might sound unappealing, but it is really the... More

I took four separate photo tours over a 3 day period. Manjit showed me around some places that felt almost like film sets they were so set up for photography. Manjit is an amazing photographer who knows Calcutta like the back of his hand, so you definitely get to go to the best and most interesting places to shoot. I... More

I was visiting Kolkata for work and decided to take a tour with Manjit on the advice of a colleague. It was definitely worthy of the recommendation. Manjit was an excellent guide and we have a very enjoyable tour! We are not avid photographers and Manjit catered our tour to this and even took some wonderful photos for us. Manjit... More

This was an illuminating tour through the backstreets of North Calcutta - taking us to hidden places (temples, synagogues, food-shops & much more) that we would never have found alone. Manjit enthusiastically keeps the energy levels flowing for 3 hrs - It's definitely not a tour for improving your photographic skills, much more for facilitating places, people and atmosphere. Also... More

I decided to go on this tour at the last minute and I am so glad I did. Calcutta is a hard city to get your head around as a photographer and doing this tour puts you right where you need to be. Manjit is funny and engaging and his knowledge of Calcutta and areas to shoot is second to... More

You grow up in a city and are socially and historically aware of it and you feel you know your city but then comes a photowalk which changes your preconceived idea. If i did not do this photowalk i would have missed a very important feature of kolkata for sure. I would have missed the remnants of history , and... More

This was my maiden trip with Calcutta Photo Tours and I was very impressed with the way Manjit handled the tour. He pays special attention to the history of the place, how to get a good shot and photo ops along the way. He is like a walking encyclopedia on Calcutta ! Even though I am a local resident, he...
