Full description
Take a trip to one of India’s four major metropolises with this full-day sightseeing tour of Kolkata. Experience this vibrantly cultural city, with its mix of British and Indian architecture, as you are led through its streets by a professional English-speaking tour guide. On your tour, you will see historic, modern, European, and Asian sights, all together in one city. Visit the beautiful Victoria Memorial, a building dedicated to Victoria, the former Queen of the United Kingdom and Empress of India. Inside is a museum documenting the history of the city. You can also stare in wonder at the stars in Birla Planetarium, where stepping inside is like stepping outside on a clear, bright night. The old British Fort William is an imposing sight to behold, while the Mother Teresa Ashram will remind you of the hardships many people face, and stir you on to follow in her loving footsteps. For a look at modern Kolkata, you will visit the giant cricket stadium Eden Gardens, one of only two 100,000-seat cricket stadiums in the world. The awesome Howrah Bridge, which connects Kolkata with its sister city, Howrah, is also a modern marvel to see. The mix of new and old, European and Asian, will keep you constantly engaged in this fascinating city. Formerly known as Calcutta, Kolkata is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. It is a large, bustling city, holding the title of India’s third-largest metropolitan area with a population of 15.7 million when its suburbs are included. It sits in eastern India on the east bank of the River Hooghly, across from its sister city, Howrah. Join us for an exciting day in this exciting city!

Far too expensive for what was a drive through the city.

The piece is way too high got what is included. I could have done all that on my own- didn't learn very much.

Super und empfehlenswert *****

Wenn man Kolkate ohne eigene Faus erkunden möchte, ist dieser City Tour gut geeignet. Die Reisebegleiterin Hena Kauser war die beste, was wir auf den Reisen gehabt haben! Sie hat uns sogar mühsam geholfen, das Geld zu tauschen, da wir kein Bargeld hatten und Tausch oder Abhebung des Geldes von Automaten nicht möglich war. Herzlichen Dank ihr dafür! Sie war sehr kompetent, super nett und lieb und hat uns alles gezeigt, was wir sehen wollten!
