Thank you Deepa,

Am sure my spouse would love to check these out. Are there any walking tours you recommend which can cover the history of calcutta and important places ( not interested in bazaar tours)

Deepa runs a walking tour of Kolkata by the name of Kolkata Magic, you can PM her for details.

You can also take a look at Calcutta Photo Tours run by my friend Manjit, its a new agency but they are doing good work and I have heard good reports.

Write to both and take a look at what they have to offer. You can find both on Google.

Regarding post number 10 of Deepa_Krishnan.

The question is about bookstores and theatre.

Not about walking tours, which Deepa_Krishnan trying to promote here.

Deepa_Krishnan seem to have just copied a large content of their commercial website here.

This is against the forum rules. See the rules here.

And using PM for business is against forum rules.

Travel agents asking members to PM or encouraging asking questions on PM are not accepted here.

tripadvisor.com/…43533313

It is recommended to disable the PM for travel agents here to avoid misuse.

You are a DE for India and Kolkata.

Do not encourage PM for business.

And I believe that there would be many experienced local tour operators who knows Kolkata. beyond wikipedia. Who lives there, who operate tours from there,

Dear Suresh,

I have been on TripAdvisor for longer than you have, and am well aware of the guidelines. I WILL post names of agencies who have been recommended in the forum as well as those whom I have personal experience of. It is up to the OP to judge the value of my posts, not you. You are letting your personal war with Deepa interfere with my perfectly valid response to the OP. Please note if you do this again, I shall take up the issue with the forum moderators.

Please keep me out of your personal fights, I couldn't care less. My interest is in seeing the OP gets the help he/she is looking for.

Thanks.

Dear brave1 .

That is a good name. But, all my posts in this forum are based on some issues.

Your post was deleted because, it is against forum rules. You recommended a TA member to contact another forum member, who is a travel agent for business inquiries through Private message. I just brought it to the notice of the moderators.

I believe that you would be more careful in future.

Regards

Suresh,

I have referred the case to the moderators, and as you can see the post is re-instated because I have not violated guidelines in the moderators opinion.

Please leave the forum moderation to the moderators in the future, at least where my posts are concerned.
