The cultural tour with Manjit was my favourite thing I did in Kolkata by far. If I'd had more time, I would have happily done a couple more tours. The combination of an insider's guide to Kolkata, as well as the photography tips and instruction, made it the perfect tour for me. Definitely something I would do again on another... More

I have travelled to many places and I head straight for the markets and hope to get some good photos. But the pics never turn out great. So to find a tour that takes you right into the thick of the markets, with a local who knows you want to take great pics and will help you do it, is... More

Having only 4 days in India and spending my time between airports, hotels, and meetings, this was a fantastic opportunity to experience the 'real' India in just a few hours. The logistics were seamless, and Majit was an excellent host. Being in such a foreign environment as people go about their daily lives (making a living) can be a bit... More

Thank you Manjit for a lovely tour learnt so much about kolkata that I didnt know before. My friends and cousins enjoyed it very much as well. A tour which I would definitely recommend the walking is at a leisurely pace admiring and learning about the sites, whilst sampling hot tea And taking loads of pictures.

My wife and I are very serious photographers, and have taken walks and photo tours all over India. This was probably the best we've ever had. Manjit was incredibly knowledgeable about the neighborhood we were walking around, and he's a great story-teller. Sometimes it's a fine line between a good walking tour and a good photo tour. In this case... More

There is a reason that this tour is #1 on TripAdvisor, and that is because it is the most fun you will have in beautiful Kolkata! It was the highlight of our trip to India. Manjit made it such a fun experience. We got a real insight into local life in Kolkata and got to try the most amazing food... More

Manjit is an amazing person to hang around with....He knows his city very well. He knows what a photographer wants. He takes to those parts of Calcutta which are not common for tourists.... I recommend his tour for a photographer who wants to capture Calcutta's real essence and also to those who are not a photographer but wants to take... More

I have done two trips with Manjit and my 80 year old father has also done another two. They have been very memorable. Firstly I did the vegetable market and then the ethnic quarter. My father has done the flower market and the clay idols. I would have done four trips if I had not been knocked out by a... More

Myself and my 14 year old son did 2 tours with Calcutta photo tours . Manjit has a lovely approach and allows the tour to run naturally . He took real time to help my son learn some photography skills . Although I'm not the best photographer I actually got some great shots ! Because Manjit is well known we... More

We booked a walking tour with Majit whilst we were in Kolkata. Very quick response and our tour was booked. 6am start, but well worth it. Excellent tour. It was mainly based on the history of British rule in Calcutta. Great information. Funny anecdotes. Some great photo tips. I'd highly recommend these tours. I wish we'd had the opportunity to...
