Avila was a great storyteller and took us to authentic small places, including the metro(underground rail), local bus and rickshaw and stuck around to make sure we all got our Ubers. Food was great and the small lanes and backstreets of the cities fringes also. Highly recommend 😊

This was one of my TOP EXPERIENCES IN INDIA! I would give it a 6 star review if I could! Avik is an amazing guide with deep knowledge of Kolkata’s history, culture and of course its food. His route is so well prepared that you’ll be entertained every minute and the food is delicious! For me this is the best way to visit Kolkata!!! Thanks again Avik!

This was the best food tour I have been on, and I have been on a ton. This was also just an amazing cultural tour. We rode the subway, bus, got on a richshaw, and walked through some beautifully historic parts of the city. I highly highly recommend it. My friend and I, both female travelers, felt completely safe with Avik, and had a great time.

Avik took us on an amazing journey around Kolkata. We got to eat amazing food in an authentic but safe way. We got to experience travelling as a local That I wouldn’t have dared without a guide. We saw the authentic parts of the city as well as some icons.
Would recommend to any food loving travellers.

We loved this tour. It happened on Holi in Kolkata and some of the places our guide wanted to take us to were closed when we got there but we were having such a great time it didn't matter. We found something that was open and continued to learn so much about Kolkata. I know our guide would gave preferred it all went to plan but it really didn’t matter. It was an excellent tour, which included great out of the way places and excellent sweets for the final course, treat yourself and do it.

Let Avik lead you through the charms of northern Kolkata and the many delightful food stops. Tremendously enjoyable evening, with the varied dishes, travel, stories and fun facts.
Tip of the day go hungry!

Thank you for a delightful evening. Guide was professional, cordial, punctual, engaging and enthusiastic. It is not the usual tour as you get to experience much more of Kolkata than you expect. I won’t go into details as it will ruin the experience for those who follow. I highly recommend this tour. And I have been to India at least 20 times in my life and been fortunate enough to travel our globe extensively. So I have a lot to compare it with. Five stars and a hearty thank you from me.

Had a great time with Avik who was knowledgeable and straight talking (in a good way!). Food was delicious and things that I would not have tried my myself. Also loved the different modes of transport to get to each spot. A proper authentic experience.

It was not just about food. It was about exploring & traveling around with local. We saw many places and good dig into the life of the locals. Amazing way to start exporting Kolkata or India if you like us just arrived in India.

This was an amazing and one of the best guided tours I have ever joined.
Avik well experienced and he knows his city by heart, every single corner.
My tour was customized as I was alone and he took me to various different places which were not on the tour.
I would recommend this trip to everyone, the experience is fabulous:
- Metro, Train, Bus,.... and walking of course.
If you are in Kolkata, a tour with Avik is a must. Best host :-)
