I had a wonderful tour with Soham. He is very Passionate about Calcutta. We visited the wholesale fruit market, college street, a Buddist temple and the garment district. I wanted to buy Fabric and Soham knew exactly where to go. I bought about 24 meters of Khadi fabric. He helped make sure I did not get over charged. I highly recommend This tour. It's not like any other tour I have been on.

Review of: Magic Hour Tour
It was a very nice tour. We went to some of the more well-known tourist places, and it was very nice to have such a knowledgable guide with us who gave some history and context to these places. Also, we went to some lesser known places, which was great because these I would have totally missed if I would be sightseeing by myself. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Kolkata!

the tour was perfect. you’ll get a taste of pretty much every calcutta staple you’d want to try and from the most specialized, local shops. i was initially concerned about whether or not the food will be safe but had no problem at all. they’ll also show you hidden gems around and just walking around the alleys is a highly recommended experience. 100% recommend it!

This food tour exceeded our expectations! Soham was the perfect guide and provided some history on the food, the vendors, and where we even walked. He was gracious enough to even help us find bug spray, bandaids, and water. He even bought us umbrellas since it happened to pour constantly for an hour. He also was very careful where we were walking and took us through some beautiful alleys that simply enhanced the experience. The food stops were well though out, starting with chai, appetizers, main dishes and then desserts. We could have as much amid each as we wanted, but I would suggest pacing yourself if you want to have everything! You can always skip a stop if you want or have one bit and move on. Soham was also a really nice and friendly person and we had a good time just with small talk as well. I highly recommend this to anyone coming to Kolkata!
