Navpreet Arora

Navpreet runs FunOnStreets.com, a Kolkata based walking tours company that briliantly weaves an “insiders” narrative on the city, bringing alive Kolkata’s myriad colours as the “Land of the Babus, the Birthplace of Reformers, the Brewery of Nationalism.”


Navpreet started FunOnStreets in 2016, offering guided tours to locals and visitors alike and she has grown to be one of the major voices in Kolkata’s heritage landscape. Navpreet is a Sociology graduate from Presidency College and has a Masters in Management, having previously worked in the corporate sector for many years….before the heritage bug took over.
