Kolkata is home to the Bengali community widely known for their sentiments, critique and intellect. This apparently slow moving city - with its heavily congested streets, unplanned localities and batches of crumbling buildings from the colonial past - is not a typical tourist's paradise. Particularly the North Calcutta Walking Tour takes you through the meandering lanes of north Calcutta. On to the hidden courtyards of merchants’ houses, steeped in 300 years of history. A city of love and warmth, sorrow and despair, dreams and hopes, poverty and squalor, grandeur and glory, Calcutta is compelling, effervescent, teeming with life and traditions a medley of moods, styles, cultures, politics, industry and commerce.
