Our luxury Kolkata tour extension sweeps you to colonial Calcutta, now known as Kolkata. Laidback yet lively, complacent yet ambitious, politically charged but curiously indifferent; this is a city that contradicts itself at every turn of its labyrinthine-like lanes. A day in the life of Kolkata is India in all its colours, sound, chaos, and creativity. Think fragrant flower markets, a medley of street food, and imperious British buildings. Kolkata is an exciting city with a distinct Imperial flavour that makes an excellent addition to any of our Rajasthan tours.
With your guide, we then recommend you head to College Street. College Street is the heart of intellectual life in Kolkata, and where its most elite educational institutions are. Stalls along the crowded pavements sell textbooks, exam guides, classics and second-hand books of all kinds – some people even claim to have discovered valuable first editions. You can find many of Kolkata’s best bookshops here. Just across the road is the Indian Coffee House; a dark and cavernous favourite of the city’s intellectuals since it opened in the early 1940s. Even today, waiters in shabby cummerbunds serve endless cups of strong coffee to teachers, students, writers and poets.
The luxury Kolkata tour we’ve described here is merely a starting point to share a flavour of the possibilities. Every aspect is flexible, from the hotel to the length to the sightseeing. We can easily add Kolkata to most of our sample itineraries, including this luxury Rajasthan tour and this luxury Golden Triangle tour. Please get in touch so we can gain an understanding of your ideas, and develop a tailor-made itinerary to best suit you. All our tours are private, and tailor-made to complement your taste and interests. In essence, the itinerary described above is just a starting point, and together we can refine it into your ideal Indian experience.
