The tour rep, the guide and the driver were fantastic. We saw amazing sites, had a marvelous Chinese lunch, and enjoyed the day in Kolkata. The Jain Temple was my favorite place, but visiting Mother Teresa's sites were very touching and heartbreaking. We really got a great glimpse in a day of these fascinating city. I would recommend this tour to all
