Professional description
I am working as a Tour Expert for over 3 years.
I have a somewhat unique perspective of this wonderful city which has in fact many names "City of Joy", "Charnock City", "Cultural capital of India" and so on. My aim is to explore the rich culture and traditions of Bengal.
I always focus on making the tour a comfortable and a memorable one for my guests so that they take back an experience of a life time.
