Just come back from Kolkata had a fantastic time, Calcutta Photo Tours where brilliant I would highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys photography and exploring new places. Manjit was such a great guide & host. He shares all his knowledge and advice with all those that ask him. Go and explore!

We were a group of friends over for a wedding and took the 6.30am Culture tour through the gray city. We had a blast throughout with Manjit who was doing his best to figure out if we were into history or photos or both or neither....I think we were just enjoying ourselves and playing around so much that we confused...

Despite being born & brought up in this city, Manjit showed me parts of Calcutta which I never knew existed..! Couple that with his deep-rooted knowledge about the history of the place, great sense of humour and the histrionics that he indulges in, there is never a dull moment around..!! A must "to-do" not just for those looking to experience... More

I had the pleasure of spending most of the day with Manjit Singh walking around Calcutta. My intention was to take holiday photographs but outside the normal scope of tourist attractions, and I especially like people and street life. Manjit met me early am and we went to areas in the city that I would have not been able to... More

I came to India with a group of photographers from Russia to shoot street and make photo stories about India. As I arrived one day earlier, I had time by myself and that's how I met Manjit from Calcutta Photo Tours. That was quite a jump start for me, Manjit knew almost everybody on the street we walked, he told... More

We spent two 4 hour tours with Manjit. Not only was he knowledgeable and well-known (which is important for gaining local access to sites that otherwise may not be available to tourists) he was a pleasure to spend time with. The pace of the tours was perfect--unrushed and able to address questions. Manjit has a photographer's eye so he is... More

Manjit was fantastic from the very first contact. His replies were prompt, efficient and transparent. I spent in Kolkata 4 days only and I wish I could have more time here as my expirience was such positive and memorable. He provided a perfect planning and everything was organised very well. He's friendly, polite and knows much about his city. Being... More

I will enthusiastically recommend Manjit's tour to anyone and everyone who's genuinely interested in learning about the city, its neighborhoods and its social and political history. The great photo opportunities are wonderful, and they're just a small part of the experience. My recollections of the tour - neighborhoods, places of worship, shops and people - are vivid. All credit to... More

I joined two private tours with Manjit when I visited Kolkata last year and it was an excellent experience. Besides showing me some special photo shooting locations in Calcutta he also taught me a lot about photography. Manjit and his tour are as good as the reviews below say. Even if you don't want to take photos in Calcutta joining... More
