We did the Kolkata Heritage Walk with guide Malini. She sure knows her history and she regaled us with stories about the important iconic buildings of the Raj and the people that lived there or built the monumental structures. All in all it was interesting and a fun thing to do!!

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.

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
