Magic Hour Tour

3000 INR 5am - 9:30 am

Every morning, before the sun is up; the light sensitive Neon street lamps of Calcutta go off just when there is enough light. We hop on to the first tram of the day as the city enters the enchanting Magic Hour.  Trudging through the sleepy 300 year locality of Calcutta in full throttle (Tram/Bong Speed), the next few hours are spent visiting some local hidden spots around the oldest part of the city.
Before the bustling giant city wakes up, we’d have used all the iconic transport modes of Calcutta, enjoyed sights that are just ignored in plain sight, had breakfast by a hidden hole in the wall with an extraordinary view, gossiped about Bengalis and Calcutta in general, learnt the meaning to “Adda” and lot more about being Bong(Bengali). 
The “unguided tour” as we call it is wrapped up savoring Chai (tea) in a bhaad (earthen cups), the best sweets of Calcutta and finding our way through the winding streets to the place where we began.
