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

Were you ever amazed by a food court ? So many cultures and cuisines right next to each other ? Well this tour is sort of like that - just 10,000 times better. The sights and sound change every 15 minutes, drastically. From Chinese temples, to a UP Bihar settlement, from a Ango-Indians well sorted community to the hulchul of... More

I did the Culture Kaleidoscope tour with Manjit and I really can't recommend the experience highly enough. Manjit is a consumate story teller and unfolded the history of Calcutta in front of me. I felt I had been given a real insight into the lives of the people of Calcutta and was privileged to walk his streets with him. I... More

I had only a short 7 days in Kolkata for work, and did 2 tours with Manjit that week. Firstly, he's just such a lovely guy and great storyteller. I am not a photographer, but I think my curiosity and desire to "truly see" real life qualified me for his tour. I did the Mesmerising Markets and the Kaleidoscope tours,... More

Manjit's knowledge of the local area is what makes this tour stand out. He grew up in Calcutta and knows the city inside and out. If you want to experience Calcutta beyond the main tourist attractions and see day to day life in the city and different neighborhoods this is the tour you should take.
