Calcutta is truly a melting pot of cultures and communities… truly a kaleidoscope of various shades, flavors and sights that make Calcutta what it is today! This tour will help you understand a little bit of India and how so many religions and faith form the very fabric which is India. Find out amongst others about the Chinese who made Calcutta their home and gave Calcutta its amazing Chinese food. Find out the oldest surviving Christian tomb in the city, walk into synagogues which have stood for centuries within whose walls time still stands still. Taste local food and witness life as it unfolds right in front of you. Discover amazing facts about the Parsis and find hidden gems in the middle of nowhere.
