Leave the din of the city behind and visit the other European Colonies along the west bank of the Ganges with Heritage Walk Calcutta. The trip will start in front of the Victoria Memorial main entrance, where an AC transport will be waiting for you.
The tour will take you through the Portuguese colony of Bandel and its pre-colonial commerce that attracted the European traders first in this part of Bengal. Then we will visit what remains of the erstwhile Dutch colony of Chinsurah, before wrapping the day up with a walk along the Strand as we learn about the French heritage of Chandannagar.
