No better way to spend a weekend morning, other than trailing Manjit through the streets of Calcutta. I loved the fact that he knew so many anecdotes about the streets and its inhabitants.. The Chinese breakfast, the 'bhishti' and the 'ready to be milked' goats...More

I took the Cultural Kaleidoscope tour together with a group of 5 others. Maybe Manjit has started drinking his own cordial and is resting on his laurels after all the praise lavished on him to date. Compared to dozens of other similar tours I've been...More

Some great walks with Manjit, who takes you to places where it is almost impossible to take a duff photo. It helps that he knows everyone and is funny and informative. Really hope to go back and walk with him again.

We had a nice tour with Manjit through the flower market. He is communicative and knows a lot about photography. A memorable experience. Thank you Manjit!

Manjit took us to a quiet corner of Calcutta in the early morning to catch the soft light. Wonderful images that I would not have got. Absolute joy and rightly proud of his captivating city, a real 'City of Joy'. A real must for those...More

Kolkata is not on the usual tourist route and it can be hard to get to know. Walking tours give an insider view. This one with Manjit was both fascinating and engaging. Within a small area we did indeed see a cultural kaleidoscope of every...More

Did two photography tours with Manjit, the tour of the wholesale veg market (in the afternoon) and the cultural kaleidoscope tour (early morning). They were different, but both incredibly interesting, rewarding and in parts of Calcutta well off the tourist trail. Manjot is an excellent...More

This evening with Manjit was pretty much the highlight of the 3 weeks we spent in Kolkata. We took the 3-ish-hour tour to the Kumartuli potters’ area, and it was utter magic. Admittedly we got there on a special night — Mahalaya, right before Durga...More
