Calcutta Walking Tour

Calcutta Walks is a company run by three young men who love Calcutta and are keen to introduce others to the heart of the city that the tourist doesn't usually see.

They run a number of different walks each exploring a different area; the beauty of these walks is that there is no fixed route or length so if something catches your eye, your guide will be more than happy to explore with you.

Your guide will meet you at your hotel for your walk; times are arranged locally, there is no fixed departure time. Early morning is a great time to get out and explore Calcutta on foot because the traffic is light so you can walk around without too many vehicles whizzing past you, though it is possible to do the walks at other times of day too.

There are plenty of chances to savor some typically Bengali morsels along the way on all walks; food is just as important as the history and culture in this city!
