You will start your tour of the city, driving through the crowded areas of Chitpur Road in North Kolkata.  This will give you an idea why the city was known as the “City of Palaces”.  Afterwards stop at Kumarthuli, otherwise know as the potter’s quarter, where throughout the years potters work on making life size idols of various deities.  Your path next leads you to College Street, the centre of many student movements, and the site of the University.  College Street also boasts some of the finest second hand bookshops in the city. You will stop at the Coffee House, the local hangout for students, where discussions range from sports and politics to the current price of fish!  Afterwards head to Jorasanko, where you will visit a museum dedicated to the Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore. You will also stop at the elaborately carved Jain temple where your fantastic guided tour will end.
