Manjit took me on two walking tours and both were fascinating. I got to see things that I have never seen before and Manjit could not have been more generous with his time and knowledge. I can't wait to return and go on more tours with him.

You do not have to be a photographer to enjoy this tour. Manjit is charming, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I enjoyed wandering around a part of Kolkata I would not have visited on my own. No hard sell, no "cousin's shop" at the end. He even bought us some tea and snacks! I had a great time and managed to take... More

After a not-so-pleasant visit to Calcutta 7 years ago, I needed something that would change my opinion of the city. Manjit and Calcutta Photo Tours came to the rescue. The "Culture Kaleidoscope" tour was a perfect introduction to the city and its people. Armed with an infectious smile and personal and historical anecdotes, Manjit led us through bustling markets, places... More

I was born and brought up in Kolkata, but have never seen the city in this light. Manjit is a phenomenal story-teller who brought to life the various cultures that intermingled in this city a couple of hundred years back. The fact that he knew so many of the local people added a lot to the tour - it was... More

I can't rate Manjit's tour highly enough. This was a fabulous opportunity to experience Old Calcutta through the eyes of a local. The Kaleidoscope tour is a sensory overload and an unforgettable experience. He is knowledgeable about the history and cultures in the area, and shared with us anecdotes that helped make that human connection to his neighbourhood. I'd do... More

There is so much to one's home that remain hidden unless looked for! I have always known that despite living in Kolkata all my life, there is a lot to my city that I do not know about or have not experienced. So when one of my friends told me about Manjit and his tours, I was more than excited... More

(Kaleidoscope Tour on 3 Feb, Goddess Beckons Tour on 30 Jan and Hooghly’ Flower Tour on 29 Jan) Calcutta Photo Tours offers the best sightseeing + photographing experience. Its tours are very intensive and rich. It shows Calcutta’s real local life style and how colorful the city is. We also can communicate with the locals. They are all very friendly.... More

The best cup of 'chai' I have ever had was on this tour courtesy of our warm hearted, deeply knowledgable and engaging guide Manjit. A local himself he knows everybody and we were welcomed wherever we went. From the bustle of the street to quiet oases to delightful foodie venues this was an unforgettable experience. Thank you Manjit!!! :)
