Famously known as the City of Joy, Kolkata is, in every sense, the artistic, cultural and intellectual capital of the country. Kolkata's streets are vivid, hectic, chaotic, and yet, brimming with life and creativity. Starting from admiring the flourishing art scene in the city to going on rewarding gastronomical explorations to wandering amidst the countless bazaars to sitting by the banks of the Hooghly and enjoying a peaceful sunset, Kolkata is soaked in layers and layers of heritage and culture, and peeling off each layer to look beneath the hood is a very rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime experience. As the famous quote goes, "If you want a city with a soul, come to Calcutta".

"NATURE IS ALL YOU HAVE."
Sundarban offers a total different jungle safari. The whole area can be accused by boats. Well organised tour , we had a great local guide who accompanied us. Tigers are difficult to come across. But lots of birdings. Jungle cats and other animals. A must visit
My daughter and I did the pilgrims walk and our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and made for an engaging experience. I was born and raised in Kolkata and still learned so much about the history of the city. Highly recommend for a unique and unforgettable look into hidden Kolkata!
We did this wonderful walk about British legacy in Kolkata. Our guide was amazing. He told us fascinating stories about how the British took control, including treachery by high ranking official in the court of the nawab of bengal.The tea was outstanding as well! highly recommended.
Although I visited this place in the summers, I was very happy with the way arrangements were done. Educated and wise visitors were there. The pebbles on the main road is amazing. Not very costly. Overall, I recommend everyone to visit there.
