We have booked Sundarban Trip with Naturewings on 30th Dec to 1st Jan which was awesome. Very well managed and resort & launch was very clean well maintained. Food was just amazing. Specially thanks to Mr. Debkumar (our beloved Debu da) who was our co-ordinator on this trip for making our New year special. Service from starting to end was highly appreciable. We will definitely look forward for another trip with Nature wings. Thanks keep it up 👍
Their professionalism blended with excellent hospitality is remarkable. A point that needs special mention is that my nanogenarian father had accompanied my family and thanks a ton to Nature Wings as also Mangrove Retreat. Their warm attitude did not allow any wrinkled eyebrows. I surely am looking forward to holidays with Nature Wings.Thanks once again.

Its an amazing and beautiful journey (Sundarban)..... well planned, excellent service, good food quality and lots of enjoyment ..... Thanks to 'Naturewings' to organize such a memorable tour. We are waiting for the next.
We were total 22 family members just completed Sunderban Tour few days ago. It was different experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The best part was the whole day boat cruise with lots of yummy fries and local fish. Though we couldn’t spotted the tiger, but we have seen few deers and crocodiles heard from guide that just 2 days back, locals spotted tiger in Sajnekhali, but we missed it. The hotels, food, transports and boats provided by NatureWings were good and as committed. Thanks to NatureWIngs for arranging wonderful Sunderban Tour from Kolkata.
Our trip to Sunderban was really great and we enjoyed the largest mangrove forest of the world, so many rivers and canals and overall boat cruising and visiting the watch tower. The Bengali style food with many fishes like Ilish and Chingri made our trip really fabulous. Previously we travelled for Bhutan Tour with NatureWings and they provided very good service, so this time when we decided for Sunderban, we choose them without any doubts and obviously they didn’t disappoint us.
Our trip to Sunderban was very well organized and we enjoyed a lot. The whole day boat cruising was very relaxing, the boat was good, there are places with bed for taking rest. My parents took a sleep in the bed and we played lot of games on board with other passengers. The mobile signal was not available all the places and I liked that, at least for few hours I felt I was like out of the world. Whole day boat cruising with onboard good foods was very relaxing and got a complete rest. We stayed in Dayapur village and choose a premium resort over there, all facilities including AC, Geyser and all other amenities were available and in the evening they organized a local folk dance program. The overall food, both at resort as well as on board in the boat was good. The boat was neat and clean with good sleeping bed with private small cabin. Bathroom in the boat was also ok. Overall, it was new experience with boat cruise and we recommend NatureWings for Sunderban Package from Kolkata.
We are from Mumbai and on a way to visit Bhutan, we took 3 days Sunderban Tour from Kolkata, arranged by NatureWIngs. It was really a awesome experience with unique ambiance under the world’s largest mangrove forest and various wild lives. Our trip started from Kolksta and after 3 and half hours of journey, we reached a river jetty Gadkhali, from there we boarded our boat and it started sailing for around 2 hours to reach our resort, Mangrove resort. Once we boarded our boat from Gadkhali, green coconut was offered. After sometime, they offered some vegetable pakora , Cheese pakora and paneer pakora along with 2 times tea/coffee. Then we checked in at the resort the most exciting day was the second day, when it was a full day cruising with lots of vegetable items. The whole day boat cruising along with watch tower visit was really thrilling and we spotted one crocodile on the river bed. Sometime boat enters into the very narrow canal and we got frightened. The lifestyle of Sunderban local is very unique and risky too. We found few very small boats are sailing through for fishing. Overall our Sunderban Tour from Kolkata was memorable one.
In last week of Decenber, we Book a Sunderban Package Tour for 3 days. The trip was really good, we enjoyed the boat ride, hotels and food. Kids in our team enjoyed by spotting few deers and one crocodile during 1st day of our cruise. We are a bird lover and on the first day we could see few rare bird species in the pakhiralaya. However, we could not find much value in the evening dance program. The fried fish on board was really munchy and tasty. If you want to take a break from your city life and mobile calls, I recommend taking a sunderban trip. It will rejuvenate you for sure. Kudos to NatureWings.
