Guided Kolkata Sightseeing Trip by Car, Walk & Sunset Cruise Excursion Trip

9 reviews
See the highlights of the big, bustling city of Kolkata on an easy full-day trip. Experience the culture and beautiful architecture of the city three ways: via car, on food, and by boat along the Hooghly River. This is a private tour, so you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide. Fit a lot of sightseeing into one day without worrying about hailing taxis or other logistics.

South Park Street Cemetery is a must-visit in Kolkata. The tall graves, shady trees and the relative quietness form the bustles of the city makes it a great place to visit for a leisurely stroll. Also great for photography. Ticket price is 20 rupees, but if you have a camera then they will charge you 50 rupees at the gate.

This was my third visit here. The graves are so interesting so make time to read a lot of head stones. They have their own nursery inside now and are producing heaps of colourful plants. They have a lot more gardeners now and the place is looking good. If you go after 3.30pm it turns into "lover's lane" young Indian couples everywhere.

Left to rack and ruin after Partition. The cemetery is only now being partially restored. Many of the graves have lost their identification. Lovers use the graves for their trysts. The Trust produces a booklet Rs100 but it is difficult to find the graves named in the booklet which mainly covers the work done.

I went with a friend who has a penchant for history. It was a eerie feeling to be among the dead buried for centuries. Among many, the tomb of Henry Luis Vivian D'Rozio is best preserved. It saddened me a lot to find many people had died at a tender age (of less than 30 / 40) mostly due to lack of medication.
