    The excursion guide has taken his time to guide the four of us well. He was helpful and service oriented. He ensured that our safety was not compromised. The only drawback was the car, which was too tight for the legs. It was a spacious car but uncomfortable to be able to move around freely. Furthermore in 9 hours you can enjoy the sights and the holy places of Kolkotta. Time passed quickly due to the busy environments and waiting times of the people in rows. A great excursion everywhere.

    The tour was well thought out and was tailored very individually to our wishes. With a very personable guide who was competent and smart and spoke very good English. He was able to answer our questions competently and has actually brought us a great deal closer to the spiritual world of Calcutta. A little tip: bring or get your mountain pines, because you often have to put on and take off your shoes.
