About this tour

lying on the banks of river Hoogly, Kolkata is one of the most prominent cities in India and a major metropolitan in the country. Being the capital city of West Bengal, Kolkata is renowned for its heritage spreading across to literature, art, culture, cinema and music. There is a popular quote that we couldn’t agree more ‘If you want a city with a soul, come to Calcutta’. This beautiful city happens to be about the 300-year old that was once called as Calcutta, a name that was given by the British during their reign. It was later in 2001, that the name was changed to Kolkata. Being a port city, Kolkata played a very significant role in shaping the modern history of India. This tour offers a fantastic image of Kolkata by car.
