An early morning adventure tour to watch the city wake up. We start @ 5 am catching the first tram of the day, tasting chai from clay cups ,visiting un-touristy spots just like a local and try to find the origin of God at Kumartuli, all before the city gets busy.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Calcutta Capsule

Every morning, before the sun is up; the light sensitive Neon street lamps of Calcutta go off just when there is enough light. We call this time the Magic hour, and what better way than to see a city than when it's waking up. We hop on to the first tram of the day as the city enters the enchanting Magic Hour. The trams, which used to be the king of the roads, still rule the streets during the 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. 
. A quick survey of Calcutta's colonial past ,we bask in 200 year old colonial architecture and the back stories of some of the office buildings as we drive through Dalhousie and reach India's Largest flower Market to understand what "Order in chaos" means.
We also start identifying odd jobs performed by the people of the city which we ignore in plain sight but without which the city would loose its charm. The waterman, mobile Preist and Flowerman to name a few.
Eating at an eatery literally under the bridge and taking the river ferry to find yourself in the artists village of Kumartuli and stumbling upon 250 year old hidden temples in the middle of the city is what follows. 
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 (the tour we mean).
