    Food tour
    Highlight of our trip to Kolkata- fantastic guide and food tour of the newmarket area. I would highly recommend as a great way to get amongst the local culture and cuisine. My wife and teenage daughter all enjoyed immensely.

    Quick break in business to soak in Kolkata culture.
    Dilip did a superb job of handling us Australians when breaking up a business trip to Kolkata. Definitely recommended and I will seek him again next time I am there to get a deeper understanding of this great city!

    Excellent service
    Just finished a 4 day visit to Calcutta arranged thru Calcutta Caravan and specifically with Mark Deep.Our visit included 2 walking days and 2 heritage days with transport.All I can say is it was one of the most gratifying and enriching experiences we have ever had on our travels. I must here thank Mark for being such an excellent host we saw all we wanted to see in our itinerary and then more.And to really make us feel at home and get the full Calcutta experience Mark invited us to a lovely dinner cooked by his gracious wife Nafisa and also got to meet his playful son David. Thank you Mark ,you are a credit to your country.

    It's About the Stories....
    I chose the Whitetown Walk and my knowledgeable guide (Mark) explained the history behind each landmark with passion. Pride for one's city would, inevitably, translate into a meaningful tour and I certainly enjoyed mine very much. Thank you!

    A jovial friend to explore the city with.
    It was a comforting experience from the very first call up until the very end. Mark is an excellent point person/guide/contact/friend all rolled into one. Going into it head-on, trying to eek out what the client wants, and then going ahead, and delivering on that. That's what I guess, he excels at. I booked a tour for my parents, and he made sure I didn't keep worrying constantly about their well-being for the time they were out with him, telling me everytime I called, "Don't worry, Sir. They're with me. And I won't leave their side till the time you reach here." Fun, informative, historical, customised.. Whichever sort of tour you want, Calcutta Caravan should be your go to operators. -Srijan

    Wonderful Experience
    I must say, my Kolkatta visit would have been incomplete without the tour Organized by Calcutta Caravan. From the time I contacted Mark for the first time to get details about the tour, till we ended the tour, the entire interaction was handled with absolute professionalism and commitment. Mark went out of the way to ensure my requests are fulfilled , that too with a great enthusiasm. Be it my request for having authentic Rasagulla or Tram Ride.. Since I was travelling with my parents and Kids, I did not want it to be a hurried tour. That was so perfectly well handled. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would surely recommend anyone to take these customized tours from Calcutta Caravan.

    On the 23rd of December a Kids Carnival was organised at The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata and was an awesome event to attend the children of the family enjoyed to the fullest. We had paid a nominal fee and received 5 star services ,food, freebees and also a goodie to take along. Will surely attend all the events organised for children.

Had a great time with family, a must do for everyone who visits Kolkata. I would recommend Calcutta Caravan to everyone, they take really good care of their customers. They treat local customers and international customers the same way and provide individual attention. They even created a personalized itinerary for us. The packages they offer is pocket-friendly. Mark help us organize the tour perfectly. Looking forward to other interesting walks they organize.

We took a Heritage Walking Tour with Calcutta Caravan. This was a fascinating walk taken by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who gave us a lot of interesting information about Calcutta (Kolkata Now). I have been to Calcutta many times earlier too, however never got an opportunity to know the city. Pinning on this walking tour was definitely a wise decision. 

It was fascinating to watch the magnificent buildings built during the British era and know the history behind them. We also had lunch in The Lalit Great Eastern Hotel, which is apparently the first 5-star hotel in Asia. The ferry ride across the Ganges was so soothing at the end of the tour. The placid breeze was everything we needed to refresh at the end of a super active day. The entire tour was very well planned and timed.

I have lived and traveled in India for over 5 months now and my experience with Calcutta Caravan was definitely one of the most amazing experience I have had. Initially, I was hesitant about the walking tour but I am glad I let my friend talk me into it.
As Mark, our tour guide says "The best way to feel the texture of a city is to walk the streets of that place". I can't agree more with him. We walked through the lanes of residential alleys to experience the lives of the locals and it was so overwhelming to see them up close.

Would definitely recommend Calcutta Caravan Tours to everyone for their excellent service and professionalism.

Hi Deep, my aunt and family have been delighted with the Calcutta Caravan's hospitality during her last month’s trip to Kolkata.
Do send me the pics that you had clicked so that I can share with them.
I thought it is important I share her views for everyone to see.
She said it was a fab little tour. Snaking across the city, highlighting different areas and stopping for well-chosen snacks and drinks, with careful attention to dietary needs and different tastes it was a perfect mix of just everything that was essential.The stops reflected the diversity of the city and Deep is lovely and enthusiastic.He shared beautiful snippets of Kolkata's rich history and information about the goodies which are just right for the event.
My aunt and her family really enjoyed their experience with Calcutta Caravans and they would definitely recommend it. I look forward to connecting with you on my next personal trip to Kolkata as and when it happens

I took two walks with them, The White Town Walk & The Black Town Walk. What an experience to know the city with it's diversities and confluence of culture. It was a great decision to take walking tours. It's the best way to know the city . There is so much to see and know while you take a walk. Our guide mark was very informative and friendly and he had a great sense of humor which made our walk enjoyable and happening. I would surely recommend Calcutta caravan to everyone.

We did a kolkata City tour with Mark. He is a great guy and an excellent guide. A true ethusiast who loves to show his city. He was very informative, and the best part was the way he gave the information, that made it more interesting. Would definitely recommend calcutta caravan to anyone who wants to see and know Kolkata up-close and if you are lucky, you may get Mark as your guide.

An excellent way to discover and learn about Kolkata. We did two walking tours with them - one each day - all with a hugely informative local tour expert. Thoroughly recommended for anyone who wants to explore Kolkata to its roots and for the foodies, do not forget to try the local street food. Cheers.

Mark has a very charming personality and has good knowledge of the city. He is very helpful and offers interesting facts about Kolkata. He was able to help us efficiently manage time through the city tour by guiding us through lanes and alleys of Kolkata, which can be tricky. He also gave us good knowledge about each site we visited while he drove us around. All in all it was a very refreshing experience, highly recommended.
