Mr. Manjit is not only friendly and humourous but also has many interesting facts and inside stories to share. I did the cultural walkabout starting at 6am. It seems real early but you'll appreciate that traffic is not busy and it's cool enough to walk about. Learnt a lot and quite enjoyed myself! Many thanks, Manjit! :)

To be frank it was embarassing at times to be based in Kolkata and still know almost nothing of what was on Manjeet's curriculum. The tour structure is all no-fuss, walk about the street, immerse all your senses in diverse flavours of Kolkata where its hard not to become one with the city. Manjeet's knowledge , anecdotes, trivias and his... More

My wife and I spent the morning doing the market tour. As a white guy that only speaks English, there is no way I would have walked into that market without a tour guide. We got some super awesome photos and appreciated Manjit's ability to clearly explain things to us in English. Would recommend to anyone who wants to take... More

The absolute best way to see Kolkata. Manjit knows everywhere to go and everything you have to see while visiting. Hands down the most passionate and energized tour guide I've ever had - truly makes touring Kolkata a special and meaningful experience.

When you want to explore, you might as well begin with your own city . The Culture Kaleidoscope Tour provided me with that perfect opportunity! Just when you start thinking you probably know everything about Kolkata, this tour goes ahead and gives you one big surprise and a fresh perspective. Manjit led us through the lanes of central Kolkata, unraveling... More

I was born in Kolkata,but I am away from the city for several years now. I took the cultural kaleidoscope tour and was n't disappointed. The early morning tour with Manjit gave me new insights about the city's multicultural past.The experience was unforgettable.

Manjit will make you feel very relaxed and comfortable about walking through the neighbourhoods he deals with. You will experience lots of cultural mix and excitement on any of his tours I am sure, but I went specifically on the Culture Kaleidoscope tour and it really is a great way to experience the soul of this wonderful city.

Despite the early start to avoid the heat of the day, I've just had the most amazing morning walk with Manjit through the grey town area of Kolkata. He is an incredibly knowledgable and passionate guide with a real eye for the changing colours and sights of the city. The walking route took in quite back streets and bustling markets... More
