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.

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...

Manjit knows Kolkata, photography and what westerners like and dislike about India. He is unobtrusive but helpful. He is encouraging and enthusiastic. He cares for your biological needs en route!

How can one compete for attention in a place of such sensory overload such as Kolkata? Manjit did. He outdid and enhanced the sights and sounds of his walking tour with historical stories - igniting the imagination and transcending time. Stay tuned, each story had a delightful ending. How fun it is to be given clues and come upon hidden... More

We did this tour the second day after being arrived in India. We were a little be afraid to be lost in the huge Calcutta, that is the main reason we decided to take a tour. We were right to do that! Manjit droped us in a small, multicultural part of Calcutta. Where we would be never gone certainly. Manjit... More

If you like photography Manjit will take you to where you just dream being! If you do not like photography you will end being an unconditional fan.

Being a Calcuttan, one does tend to look upon such tours with a certain disdain. After all who can tell us more about our own city than us? I had gone into this tour with a similar feeling, especially as we would be traversing through areas known to me. However, on embarking on the tour I found familiar places sporting... More

We found the tours a truly unique way to experience this historic and cultural city. Manjit led us through 2 tours and provided interesting stories and insights with passion and enthusiasm. It was like being shown around by a friend and we're still in touch with Manjit months later! As part of the tours we did a heritage walk and... More
