Tour Comments

  1. i would need a dedicated assistant for support service in my future exploration program at Bankura. In the interiors of Bankura, people are inquisitive and unfriendly. Anybody with a camera draws lot of attention. My friend who went on his own expenses for support service was not very effective. I could do with a professional in such situation.
  2. Food quality and mineral water availability in the interiors of Bankura is absolutely pathetic.
  3. Mobile cameras have helps me a lot in several places. My phone camera shoots high resolution photographs. I will need an wide angle extension for my cell phone
