We had booked the Bangladesh Shaktipeeth tour through Kolkata Car Rental and had a wonderful and safe journey all throughout Bangladesh. People were very cooperative, helpful and our guide Mr. Sandeep was always there to help us. Comfortable vehicle and journey. Driver Raibul was very helpful and cooperative. A five star for the services of Kolkata car Rental. Would definitely recommend them or the Bangladesh Shaktipeeth Tour.

Shaktipeeth Tour of West Bengal, Jharkhand and Odisha

We had hired a Tata Hexa in the second week of January and were lucky to be the first passengers to hire the vehicle. A Brand new vehicle. Not much to say. We did a trip to Babadham and the West Bengal Shaktipeeth and then to Puri. Driver Dhruv was extremely cordial and polite. A five star experience.
