We took two of Manjit’s tours when we first arrived in India, and they were truly a wonderful introduction to the country and the chaotic maze of craziness that is Culcutta. Manjit’s passion for the city is infectious and his depth of knowledge is quite astounding. Whether you’re an amateur, enthusiast or don’t care about photography at all, there is something for everyone to take out of an adventure with Calcutta Photo Tours. My only complaint: I needed to buy another CF card after all the great shots we too.
