We came here with our two adult sons and each day we toured with Calcutta walks. This is a wonderful way to see the real and the secret side of Calcutta. Ritwick was our guide on most days, a lovely informed and amusing guide , we had great walks with him. Finally we went with Ifty on an evening street... More

I absolutely LOVED my experience with the Calcutta Walks! The tour guides are fantastic and it helps you to understand the people and culture in such a different way. India is already such a different culture than most, so this really helped me to see the vast history and stories that go beyond what the eye can see. The tour... More

Spent two long mornings with Calcutta Walks, guided by Anirban Dutta. First visit was to Dalhousie Square to see the city's heritage architecture, with an additional drive to the Kumarti idol-makers colony added at our request. Second visit to the Kalighat Temple and the Victoria Memorial. Calcutta is not an easy city to navigate on a first visit, and we... More

Had one walks and a cruise with Calcutta Walks. Both informative and relaxed. Very personable guides on both occasions. No fault of our respective guides but one of our experiences didn't happen due to miscommunication and our sunset cruise happened early afternoon. Nevertheless this didn't dampen our spirits or the experience of a wonderful city. Would recommend

Wonderful walk! I would recommend it to anyone who visits Kolkata. There is a story to every building, shop, corner....a fascinating walk through history and current customs. Our guide Ramanuj was really good and very interesting. He was also very flexible and helpful with our late arrival.....There were also a few Kolkata residents taking the tour, usually a good sign!... More

Calcutta is no ordinary city and its not easy getting to know her. Well informed, passionate, driven and unconventional, these guys work (and walk!) the extra mile to make your day. So, if you are looking for a walking tour dripping with history that seamlessly blends with the present, this is it, look no further. Thank you Ramanuj and Ifte,... More

If you're in Kolkata don't miss at least a couple of walking tours with this company. Knowledgeable and interesting guides will walk you through the streets and alleyways of old and new Kolkata. Intriguing and amazing. Hidden monuments, fascinating street scenes, the real sights and sounds of the city with a local expert.

This tour shows you a real heritage of calcutta. The diversity of the city is incredible. The melting pot of cultures is portrayed with finesse. REAL world (red pill) stuff. Snack breaks were icing on cake. The tour was conducted with intelligence and tact. It was part living history and international relations master class. The guide, Iftie, was particularly knowledgable... More

Calcutta Walks had so many Oh Calcutta moments and made me rediscover a city I have been visiting since my childhood. I did two walks - The Confluence of Cultures led by the intrepid Ifetkhar Ahsan and The Star Still Shines led by the enthusiastic Ramanuj Ghosh. Both walks were fascinating and Iftekhar and Ramanuj were full of knowledge, anecdotes... More
