    Tour with Sourav was fantastic. He showed me the most important places in Kolkata. He was able to transmit his acknowledge and passion for his home city. We finished our interesting discussion about different topics with a super chai. You can't miss this tour especially if you are new in Kolkata.

What To Expect

The culture and history of Kolkata is a long and vibrant one, reflecting the diversity of the city's religious sects. Your guide will meet you at the Howrah Tram depot, and here your walking tour to thee city's important locations and landmarks will begin. The River Ganga is your first destination, for reasons that may well be already evident: the Ganga is one of India's (and the world's) famous rivers, a waterway that has long roots throughout history that affects the entire world. In the trans-boundary of Asia, this river has played a huge role in international affairs and exploration during the ancient world. This is followed by a boat ride that takes you up to the Howrah Bridge, a suspension bridge over the sacred Hooghly River. It is one of the city's most famous symbols, linking the cities of Howrah and Kolkata together. The next stop, the local Raj Bhavan, is the official residence of the West Bengal Governor. This splendid western style structure has all the air of the White House in America and is considered far more than just a heritage building. It is a landmark of history, calling back to the past. In a similar vein, the Calcutta High Court, your next destination, is the oldest of the high courts in India. It is also very reminiscent of another western building, which is the Ypres in Belgium. The tour is rounded off by a look into local culture, and nowhere else is this more evident than a visit to the local markets. Lines upon lines of merchants with glittering wares in all directions, displaying the vibrant cultural diversity of the city. You can indulge in some shopping here, purchasing at your own expense some souvenirs or gifts to bring home, watching locals sell, haggle, and purchase items, before your tour concludes at the St. John Church.

    Excellent experience. Local Guide Saurabh was very friendly and extremely informative. He gave us wonderful insights about Kolkata. Had an amazing morning. Highly recommended tour.

    Not a great tour. Our tour was to start at 10am, and we were asked to come 15mins early on the booking voucher. We arrived at 9:45am at the pick-up spot, and our guide came at 10:15am. Not just that, he didn't call to tell that he was running late - and we called him at 10:05. We really wanted to give him a shot, but he let us down multiple times. He started the tour without much information or briefing. He started walking and just telling us random facts about the city etc. He kept using his phone on the way to attend calls or text people. He wasn't professional and just kept walking us around, with little to no customer orientation. This would've been a 2-3 star rating, but we learnt that he told us a lot of wrong information. We visited Victoria Memorial(not part of this tour) later, and the historian there told us a lot of things about Kolkata that the guide told us incorrectly before. We were very disappointed.
