I would recommend the tour of the Flower Market, the Howrah Bridge and the surrounds. We were met, 'dead on time' by Yasir Khan, a very friendly and knowledgeable young man, who showed us Calcutta as a local. He took us to the Flower market and on the bus to Old Calcutta, the Ghats, over Howrah Bridge, past the huge railway station, back over the river on the ferry, for a cup of tea at the road side and the High Court. He also tried desperately to get us in to visit Eden Gardens, to no avail (this wasn't through lack of trying by Yasir). Through the whole time we were with him, he imparted his considerable knowledge of Calcutta and India in a very friendly and distinct manner and we were treated like friends rather than customers. Yes it is true, the tour is free and Yasir asked for no money. It would obviously be up to individuals to give what you might think, it was indeed worth a great deal. If you do nothing else in Calcutta, try a tour. You will be rewarded with knowledge, an understanding of India, see sights you would not see alone and make new friends. I can't recommend it enough.

Yesterday we did a tour with Yaser who was very kind (he stayed for more than 2 h and generously bought some te chai for us) and took us perfectly to the Flower Market and Howrah bridge and station, it was absolutely beautiful. It is definitely the safest and best way to visit the city as it is so much easier to go with a local. We would recommend it to anyone and will most probably do it again!

I recently took the Flower Walk tour. I really enjoyed being with the people as we rode the bus, stopped for tea and took the ferry across the river. Need to confirm all their tours - since they basically run on demand.
