Despite being a young guide Nasir tries hard to offer you a great experience. Apart from this listed tour I also paid extra for him to organise another craft tour which he hardly knew much about to begin with, but in the end he managed and I thank him for that. A lot could be improved still but he puts in a great effort.

Nasir was one of the friendliest people we met during our trip to India! We met on the first day of our backpacking journey and we had a good time making traditional lac bracelets with his uncle at his workshop, it was a new experience. He later took us to a local restaurant nearby to enjoy local indian food and it was delicious! Only one thing we would recommend is to purchase lac bracelets here which were unique and personalized, while bracelets other than the lac ones can be found for a way cheaper price in the market, that quite surprised us and we felt like we spent a lot on the same bracelets that could be found cheaper anywhere in Kolkata. Nasir also was super helpful with getting our internet data to work and we appreciate that! Definitely recommend him to future guests and our friends!

It was a great experience watching the bangles being made and trying to make ones ourselves! Definitely recommend this as a must-do activity when in Kolkata

This experience is 100% worth it! We chose it based on a previous review, and being jewellery collectors, we were very excited but unsure what to expect. Meeting up with Nasir was extremely easy - he communicated with us on WhatsApp prior to the day and gave us all the information needed. His uncle and family were very welcoming and so knowledgeable, and very happy to answer our questions. They showed us a variety of styles of lac bangles and explained the process of making them. We then got to try ourselves (with their guidance of course). We ended the experience with chai and pav bhaji, and a lovely chat with Nasir. Highly recommend, it was a wonderful afternoon.

Fantastic! This is really 'once in a lifetime' for international people to really see and connect with the Real Deal artisans in this city. Nasir's family & uncle particularly are such very gentle, generous and patient teachers and made every effort to encourage us to make our own crafted piece, and also make special pieces to order for us. An absolute highlight of our stay in Kolkata. I would recommend to locals and national tourists also to appreciate the beautiful work being made in their own vicinity. Do this experience if you have even the very slightest appreciation for cultural artefacts!

I absolutely loved this experience. Nasir and his family were so warm and welcoming they invited us in to watch how they made beautiful bracelets. I loved the fact that Nasir went out of his way to ensure we had a good and enjoyable time. Highly recommend for anybody travelling through Kolkata and wants more of a local experience.
