- Visit the Victoria Memorial and the Kali Temple
- Chow down on a flavor-packed Lunch
- Private transportation with a local Kolkata tour guide
Visit some of Kolkata’s most beloved landmarks on a 6-hour, small-group tour with a local guide that includes hotel pickup and drop-off, entrance fees, and lunch. Take in colonial-era sights like the Victoria Memorial and St. Paul’s Cathedral, then see a historic temple to Kali, hop a ferry to Belur Math, and explore Prinsep Ghat before finishing the day with a Kolkata Lunch.
This tour begins with 10.00am pickup at your hotel, where you’ll meet the guide and small group for a briefing on the itinerary for the afternoon. Your first stop is at Victoria Memorial, a grand marble landmark that’s one of Kolkata’s most recognizable places, with views of manicured grounds and the Hooghly River. Continue to St. Paul’s Cathedral, the first Anglican Church in the eastern world, whose unusual “Indo-Gothic” design has survived a series of massive earthquakes.
Next, relax over a Kolkata-style Lunch with the guide, and then proceed to the Prinsep Ghat, where you’ll have time to taste some local ice cream and photograph the landmark—the classical lines of the ghat are especially dramatic with the backdrop of the modern Vidyasagar Setu Bridge. Later, learn the story of the Dakshineswar Kali Temple on the eastern bank of the Hooghly River, then board a ferry to Belur Math, the headquarters of Ramakrishna Math and Mission, founded by Swami Vivekananda, a chief disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa.
