I had a wonderful day tour of Kolkata in November 2019 with Kolkata Magic. As a single woman travelling for work, I really appreciated the efficiency of a guide and car to take me around the city in comfort and safety. My communication with Kolkata Magic was excellent from start to finish, and I felt that, despite my very limited time in Kolkata, I left with an excellent overview of the city. My guide also gave me a great tip for the following day - an excursion to the Botanical Gardens. It is a bit of a trek in the traffic, but well worth it provided that you hire the local Gardens guide (ask at the entrance booth for his phone number) in an electric golf cart. Do NOT think that you can walk it on your own unless you have many hours to spare...I hope to return to Kolkata and would definitely recommend Kolkata Magic to other visitors.

Our family had a fascinating experience during our 4-day visit to Kolkata in November 2018, thanks to our knowledgeable guide Mr. Manabendra Nag and the excellent organisation from the Magic Tours of India team. Our tours included Kolkata's "must-sees", the New Market, the Bengal Renaissance Walk, and a NGO-Animal Clinic Love N Care for Animals, whose work we wanted to learn more of. Mr. Nag brought the city's history to life and his engaging nature gave us the opportunity to chat with locals to get an idea of everyday life here. Mr. Nag, who knows the city and it's unique Bengali culture well, made us aware of a city facing great challenges and how people then and now contributed to its making. We were provided with a comfortable car, driven by a professional and punctual driver, who dropped us off and picked us up after our walking tours with Mr. Nag. They took good care of us concerning safety and health issues. Our stay in Kolkata was the last leg of a enlightening 2-week-tour covering Varanasi, Sarnath, Bodhgaya, Patna, Darjeeling and Kolkata, developed for us as an individual trip by the Magic team, which selected our hotels carefully, provided competent guides, and organised reliable car, air and train travel through northeast India and assisted us throughout our trip. We highly recommend Magic Tours of India for their authentic city-programs and for affordable, individual tours of India.

We took a half-day tour with Kolkata Magic to see the Dakshineswar and Belur Math temples, and it was wonderful — a highlight of our trip to Kolkata so far. After a hassle-free booking experience via email, we were picked up bang on time in a comfortable (air-conditioned!) vehicle. Our guide, Malini, was incredibly knowledgeable in addition to being friendly, relaxed and professional. She answered all our additional questions about the temples and religion in India generally, and was full of great ideas on other places to see and where to eat. We’d book with Kolkata Magic again in a heartbeat.

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.
