Calcutta sightseeing and around

by smartraveller Online Now Oct 17, 2010 at 12:27 AM

Hi everyone, I will be visiting Calcutta for business mid November ad then plan to take some leisure time to visit the city, what and how Calcutta can be seen? Any ideas of tour operators that can arrange daily city tours with a guide? Any chances for touring the nearby areas/cities, what will be worth seeing in let's say a week time? many thanks in advance.

    I have a page about Kolkata- (copy and paste into url)

    "Kolkata - Re-Visited" - Kolkata (Calcutta) by lynnehamman

    Scroll down page for tips on where to go and what to see.

    This is easier than re-writing everything down again.

    I wonderful place to visit while there is the Sunderbans Mangrove Forest area- home of the Bengal Tiger.
    There is more info about it in my West Bengal page (link is on my homepage)
