We really enjoyed our day with Manab who is a true Kolkata gentleman. The tour was very flexible to our needs and not rushed. If we are ever in Kolkata again we would love to explore other parts of this fascinating city with Manab's guidance.

Ms Malini is an excellent guide, she shares interesting historical and local knowledge through her very personable nature - which makes the day most enjoyable, and has added immense value to my experience of...

We sailed on Oceania Nautica which included 4 cities in India. I found Magic Tours had tours in all 4 cities. We visited the 1000-pillared Jain Temple. Actually there are not 100 pillars but very interesting. The drive through the back country roads was lovely and lots of opportunities to take pictures. The tour of the Soans Farm was done... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our slightly modified version of the Kolkata Must-Sees tour. Our lovely guide Mr Nag, who reminded me of a gentle uncle picked us up on time at our Park Plaza Ballygunge Hotel. We stopped first at the stunning Birla Temple close to our hotel which he explained beautifully. We found the next part of the tour less... More

This is the 5th city in our wonderful private tour planned with us by Magic Tours of India.

Good professional guys to take a city tour. Guides are very knowledgeable. But make sure to bargain for a good deal and package since they offer various packages.

I booked the food tour, hoping to get to know more about the Bengali cuisine and get to know places you wouldn't find as a normal tourist. But when the guide arrived he had not been informed by the office what kind of tour I had booked and tried to persuade us the rest of the day to look at... More
