Welcome your guide in front of the Esplanade metro station at 17.00 and take the train to a neighbourhood little frequented by tourists and known for its good food. When you disembark, dive straight in with an exotic Lasse found at a local street vendor before jumping into a small shop that has been preparing some of the best masala curries in Calcutta for over a century. While you eat, your guide will tell you stories from ancient Calcutta.

Get on a local bus and drive to one of Calcutta's most famous fish restaurants where you can try the typical jumbo shrimp with Chingri coconut cream sauce and a delicious curry fish mousse in a banana leaf. After the departure you board one of the old Richshaws, the only place where these wooden wagons still exist in India, and make a short tour of the area on the way to the next foodie stop. The gorge on a shrimp kabiraji in a legendary kitchen founded by a Scot in the 19th century

Calcutta may seem busy, but your guide will take you on a walk through a peaceful district and show you the temples and local life. As you meander through the lanes of ancient Calcutta, you will sample delicious treats ranging from the city's most famous onion bhajis to zingy gram salads made with herbs and pulses.

Enjoy local ginger with chai tea before boarding one of the old trams that have been running the streets of Calcutta for over a century for a short journey to College Street. Here many textbook dealers are overtaken by students on their way back from lectures. Visit a local café to sample a famous coconut sorbet drink, then shop at a nearby candy shop in Begali. The evening ends in the faded splendour of the old colonial coffee shop, where students discuss, ceiling fans whirl and waiters serve coffee in traditional dress.

This is not just a foodie tour, it is a tour into the heart of Calcutta.
