Avik was an excellent guide and the tour was wonderful. We tasted several types of food/drink and sampled various aspects of Indian life from restaurants to sidewalk stands. We strolled on main streets and down side alleys where the real people live. Excellent.

Navigating Kolkata is a daunting task but experiencing the food scene an even more challenging journey. Avik, the energetic food host is an absolute gem who knows the local insider spots. It’s a 50% sightseeing tour and 50% all you can eat foodie trek but...More
