I emailed Manjit when myself and my husband were first thinking about spending sometime in Kolkata, he responded promptly and it instantly felt like he was genuinely interested in us.

I participate in 2 of Manjit's tours - the culture kaleidoscope (of course) and hooghly flower fest - for two days in a row. The walks begin at 6-ish in the morning which is the perfect time to catch all the morning activities. Manjit has a vast knowledge about the areas. He knows all the history, all the rituals, all...

What a wonderful experience, with a great guide, and a warm and knowledgeable guy. I'd been to the flower market before as part of a city tour, but this was totally different showing me places I wouldn't have dreamed of exploring on my own or even finding. Best trip of my stay, recommended..

I booked a solo tour (Cultural Kaleidoscope tour) with Manjit and, from the initial contact, I could tell it was going to be an enjoyable experience. Reading the reviews, I was able to get a sense of Manjit's personality and his passion for his city. Always prompt with correspondence, as well as hotel pickup, on the day we arrived at... More

Manjit gave us an excellent tour into the parts of Calcutta we normally would not have seen if exploring on our own. We chose the Kaleidoscope Tour because we love diversity and learning about other cultures and religions, and this tour was perfect because it showed us the essence of Calcutta through the vast array of its tastes, smells, sounds...

Mr Manjeet Singh Hunjan's photography walking tours of Kolkata are brilliant gems which narrate the story of the beautiful city and its inhabitants. Manjeet's style of narration shows his knowledge of the history of the neighborhoods and his deep connections with all generations of folks living there. The walk meanders through the English (Anglo Indian), Parsi, Jewish, Christian and Ismaili... More

In March 2017 I took a fascinating photo walk in North Calcutta with Calcutta Photo Tours, and captured the attached images. Calcutta Photo Tours is run by Manjit Singh Hoonjan--a talended freelance photographer who's work has appeared in an enviable list of publications. Manjit has an infectious love of his city, and delights in helping visitors see both familiar and... More

You can tell from the moment you meet Manjit that he loves his city. He is excellent at sharing that appreciation with his guests as he leads you down the colorful and bustling streets of Kolata. Because he has the experience of a local, you turn a corner from a crowded street to find yourself in a peaceful enclave, then... More
