We were prompt and Majit and his driver were already there. After a short drive we were in the first of several wholesale markets... More

I was visiting from the US and it was my first time in India. This was a fantastic way to get exposure to a new city and find out some great historical facts about the city. Calcutta Photo Tours made this experience easy, fun and interesting. I would highly recommend this tour.

This is a fantastic way to see Kolkata and to have someone explain the history. Manjit is an interesting, charming and intelligent guy with excellent English and immense knowledge.He manages the tour at a sensible pace. I did the European Calcutta tour and at the end of it, I felt I had experienced old Calcutta, not just 'seen things'. One... More

Our group was in Kolkata only to pass through... and I found the Calcutta Photo Tours on Trip Advisor. We thought it was a great way to see Kolkata quickly before we left - and we were over the top overjoyed with our experience! Our guide, Manjit, was not only fun and knowledgeable about the city, but also PASSIONATE about... More

Manjit was informative and showed a lot of love for his city and the people. He chatted to everybody and they all knew him well. We all learned so much about Kolkata and understood the history so much better. I am only sorry we did not have time to do more of his tours. I would highly recommend Calcutta Photo... More

I had the pleasure of doing one of Manjit's tours in Kolkata a few days ago and it was one of the best moments of my trip in the area. Not only did we get to see a not so obviously touristy part of the town and get some really nice photos but we also got to interact with the... More

If you're looking for a unique experience in Kolkata you couldn't do any better than taking a walking tour with Manjit. This is not a boring tour of the major sights but a personalised tour of offbeat parts of the city. He shares his historical and cultural knowledge along the way and is known by locals, which provides access to... More

I had been in Kolkata for several days already when I was joined by my daughter for a Dragoman tour which started from Kolkata. Up to that point my impression of Kolkata had not been favourable. I had been travelling in India for several months already, but just didn't really like the feel of this city. On the recommendation of... More

Calcutta photo tours are organized walking tours in Kolkata which combine photography guiding, sightseeing and exposure to social life and history of the city. I booked two tours, since I was on short visit in the city and had no time to waste. The tours were perfectly organized: great time management and at the same time easy and not too... More
