This is one of the best city tours I have been on anywhere in the world. Kaushik is incredibly knowledgeable about Kolkata and its history, and this tour is the perfect introduction to one of the most picturesque and interesting parts of Kolkata. In three hours we covered an enormous amount, yet thanks to Kaushik’s style of storytelling the time flew by. He also gave us plenty of ideas for what to visit later on our trip; recommendations that all proved to be perfect. I really recommend this tour - Kolkata is an incredibly complex and sometimes difficult to appreciate city; this tour gives you a very insightful and meaningful understanding of it.

If possible, I would schedule this tour for early in your trip to Kolkata, as you will leave with plenty of recommendations of places to visit later. If possible, you should also ask Kaushik about his other tours - I did a private tour with him later in my stay in Kolkata and that was brilliant too.

Headline: Go to Kolkata and have a tour with Kaushik!

What an amazing city, and what a great introduction to it through this walking tour. I have family links to Kolkata, but didn't really know a lot about it until now. Going on this tour was a perfect way to start to learn about this fascinating place, and left me hungry for more. It's a very early start, but that way you get to wander round the city at a (relatively) tranquil time and see it starting to wake up. Kaushik is an engaging guide. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the city and it is good to have the chance hear and understand the Indian / Bengali take on the Raj and the British in India, rather than what we might get at home. You learn a lot more wandering round the streets with him for a few hours than you could ever do from a guide book. I hope to go back again at some point and, if I do, I would not hesitate to get back in touch for another tour.

Undertook the lovely and enlightening walking tour yesterday. The tour guide, Mr Kaushik, had demonstrated extreme passion for this type of service, immense historical knowledge and highly amiable nature of interacting with his clients, which I found to be really worth emulating. His captivating narration of the rich history of Kolkata and correlating them with artifacts on various buildings and sites along the walking route, made a very light work of the 3 hours of walking.

I wish him all the very best in all his endeavours.

We took an exceptional walking/driving tour with Kaushik C. His normal tour is nearly 4 hours. Recognizing that some of our team members may not be able to walk for that long, he modified it for us.

He is exceptionally knowledgeable not just about the city but the broader context of the city’s role in Indian and British history.

He is a great story teller which made the tour a lot of fun.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Kaushik we ended up spending an outstanding morning in the streets of Kolkata. His knowledge about every nook and corner of this city is surreal, his style of narrating is unique and his ability to connect the dots between history, geography and sociology simply stands out.
We saw the city with his eyes and saw it like I have never seen it before. Same streets that I have bustled through during my youth visiting one office from another suddenly seemed to come alive as he explained the genesis and showed us evidences of his theory.
Given his tight schedule and multiple preoccupation I am not sure how many of you can avail this walk but if you can manage to book this in advance please do not miss the opportunity.
KOLKATA will stand out in your eyes

A very well spent 3 hours. Kaushik was extremely knowledgable, pointing out numerous things that we would never have noticed on our own. His enthusiasm for the city was infectious, making us feel that we definitely need to return for longer.

KC was amazing. The best 4 hours in Kolkata.
His depth of knowledge of the buildings in old Kolkata was incredible. His eye for detail and the stories he told brought alive what was a rich and colourful past.
He is a caring and attentive guide and a great ambassador for his city, its past and present.
I can't recommend a walking tour with Kolkata Story Tours highly enough.
Absolutely brilliant.

So far, wherever we've been, we’ve seen sights. We’ve seen people and markets and have been amazed by the different sights and cultures. But the feel has been of the exotic mostly . In China, Italy or other places of India. However, our walking tour of Calcutta with Kolkata Story Trails was a stand out experience. The experience was completely different. The Story Tellers took us for the walk, showed us the sights and made us feel the exotic. But the walk was not limited to that. For every street, every building and every face, there was a story they told us. A story of not just dry historical facts or fiction but one of achievements, failures, struggle, myths, heritage and path breaking pioneering movements. We could start enjoying and understanding a city that was entirely foreign to us 24 hours before the walks. In 3 days, we enjoyed the Cemetery Tour , The Raj Heritage tour and the Sutanati Tour. The Trail companions were full of patience, polite and enjoyable company. They gave some excellent tips on things to do, eat and go around. I will recommend them to all my friends and hope the service stays the same for them.

Normally a trip to any city is " been there done that". It is seldom that one gets to know it's soul. Kolkata Story Trails (KTS) led by Kaushik has been an experience that I live within me for a long time. Calcutta to me lives in a pause and Kaushik was the right person for us to enjoy that moment.

The two half day walks were designed extremely well in terms of extracting real essence of the city. He made us walk, take the tram, hob nob in a Ferry, dumped us on the hand rickshaw, carted us in the metro.. he made us breathe and live Calcutta. Be it the history or the architecture, the glide of the Ganges or the young boys diving to embrace the waters, KTS had packed it all.

What I really appreciated about the whole experience was the pace, the patience and the passion that Mr. Kaushik exuded. He is truly a committed individual trying his best to share the city and its treasures.

I recommend this to all those visiting Calcutta and I strongly recommend to those living in Calcutta, for they do not know the many layers the city has to offer.

Towards the end, the Chinese Church was a masterpiece and I cant say much but let you savor it for yourself.

I will be back, to delve deeper into the veins of the city and Kaushik would help me explore more.
