“Abhishek made this British Legacy Walk a very interesting and lively one He answered all our questions patiently and told us fascinating anecdotes about the East India Company and British Raj. He also gave us a perspective of live in todays modern Kolkata.”
“We loved the British Legacy walk with Sauvik. It a a good way to explore the history and culture of this colorful city. It was fascinating to listen to the story about the transformation of Kolkata from a nondescript village to the capital of East Indian Company and finally a thriving metropolis of Independent India.”
