Sumita was an excellent guide for the spiritual tour. She had expert knowledge of the sites and was very flexible to accommodate our interests. We visited places on the original list but when we told her what we were interested in she adjusted the itinerary and made the trip even more interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommend Sumita!

De excursie begeleider heeft zijn tijd genomen om ons vieren goed te begeleiden. Hij was behulpzaam en service gericht. Hij zorgde ervoor dat onze veiligheid niet in het geding kwam. Het enige nadeel was de auto, die was te krap voor de benen. Het was wel een ruime auto maar ongemakkelijk om erin te kunnen vrij te kunnen bewegen. Verder in 9 uur tijd kan je prima genieten van de bezienswaardigheden en de heilige plaatsen van Kolkotta. De tijd ging wel snel voorbij vanwege de drukke omgevingen en wachttijden van de mensen in rijen. Overal een prima excursie.

Die Tour war gut durchdacht und wurde sehr individuell auf unsere Wünsche zugeschnitten. Mit einem sehr sympathischen Guide, der kompetent und pfiffig war und sehr gutes Englisch sprach. Er konnte unsere Fragen kompetent beantworten und hat uns so der spirituellen Welt Kalkuttas tatsächlich ein großes Stück näher gebracht. Kleiner Tipp: Latschen mitbringen oder besorgen, weil man doch sehr oft Schuhe an und ausziehen muss.
