We really enjoyed our tour with Anirban. The time just flew by. We got some tea at the beginning of the tour then walked around lots of the British colonial buildings in ‘white town’. Anirban was great company and very knowledgeable. We also got to ride in a yellow taxi to see the Victoria memorial which was beautiful! Highly recommend this tour.

Great tour - especially as I’m from the UK. The guide was tremendously knowledgable. The Victoria Memorial tour was a real treat. A must for anyone with a fascination with the British experience in India.
