From the minute we met Manashi. to the moment she dropped us back at the hotel, we had the most amazing day. Manashi...such a beautiful person...polite, informative, educated, encouraging and funny - one of those people you want to be around. She answered our many questions about history, culture, places and in a way that respected all opinions. She asked what WE wanted to see and do, and advised us every step of the way with traditions and practices. We felt honoured that we had opportunities that may otherwise not have happened. She is so proud of her country and I can see why. I had already decided before our tour was over that I was coming back to India - to see more and hopefully meet Manashi again. More than worth the cost of the tour and the memories will stay with us for a long time. Thank you Manashi and Kolkata!

It was excellent: better than expected

First of all, it was really “custom private” with all the flexibility that one may desire. Secondly, the guide, Mr. Anirban Dey, was not just very knowledgeable but also a beautiful human being. It has been a pleasure knowing and being associated with him. And for all this, we are very grateful. THANK YOU, ANIRBAN.
