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.

First of all I want to thank Manjit for being such an exciting person with great knowledge about the city of Joy, Kolkata. My purpose of this tour was photography about the city and that exactly what I got form it. I am eagerly looking for the next tour with Manjit. Thanks, Suvo

This is a must when visiting Calcutta! Manjit is super friendly and knows a lot about the history of Calcutta as well as photography techniques, which he is more than happy to share with those of us not in the know. He is patient and gives plenty of time for you to explore at your own pace, all the while... More

Being a true- blue Calcuttan, I would never have thought that I required a guided tour of my own city. Manjit was to prove me wrong! We walked around friendly neighbourhoods of north Calcutta, quaint places of worship, ancient buildings. Manjit gave us a general history of the place and amazing snippets about the area that I had never known.... More

My sister and I took the Culture Kaleidoscope tour with Manjit and he surpassed our expectations by a long shot (despite having read loads of positive reviews before-hand). He was very knowledgeable about all the stops on our tour and gave us insight on history, famous sites, and every-day routines that happen along the route. He answered all our questions,... More
