A lot is often heard about Kolkata's dwindling traffic system and how its age-old trams, means of transport that are still existing only in this part of India, are adding to the commuters' woes.
There have even been talks of doing away with old tram cars for good and redesign the city's traffic network.
However, trams are still plying in Kolkata and measures are being taken to resuscitate the 133-year-old Calcutta Tramways Company.
Take a ride in one of these AC trams early morning this week and get a taste of old Kolkata's magical heritage.
Call or email Trips & Tours to book your seats. You can book the whole tram if you wish.
