What you'll do

The Calcutta Contrast Tour aims in showing you the contrasting cultures Calcutta thrives in. It starts off by visiting India's largest open fruit market and a leisurely break at a secret rooftop to catch the sunset with a never seen before view. The whole sale markets (burrabazar ) are a place where a non Bengali culture has been in place for decades. a city within the heart of the city which is not native. The area is experienced through local food, people and shops. To bring out the contrast a very Bengali area is visited next, college Street. A coffee break at the famous coffee house, initiation to becoming a Bengali and visiting a hidden monastery follows next.

Soham

I'm an engineer who quit his corporate job out of love for photography and to return to his hometown Calcutta. Meeting new people and helping them fall in love with Calcutta has been my passion for the last two years. I am the founder of Calcutta Capsule walking tours (no#1 on trip Adv). I also co-host three Airbnb homes (Owl's Nest Calcutta) with my parents in one of the oldest parts of Calcutta. Raised in the historical alleyways of Calcutta, I’ll tell you stories about our city that have been passed down five generations of my family. You’ll step out of the guidebook and experience Calcutta like a local. For an unforgettable Calcutta experience join me on my Magic Hour, Calcutta Contrast or Alleyway Food walks. Or you can book our kite flying workshop or the secret rooftop Bengali homemade meal.
