Goa tour package from Kolkata
Why Goa from Kolkata?
The “City of Joy” definitely is alluring. But its charm is an old-world brilliance that resides in its narrow lanes, nearly dilapidated buildings, moist, mossy pathways leading to British-era red bricked colonial style buildings that takes us back to the traditional India during the time of British occupancy is different from the charm of the pristine beaches and wide open seas and lazy waves of the small coastal state of Goa. Kolkata is the capital of West Bengal, situated beside the sluggish and massive River Hoogly, a major distributary of Ganga. This third largest city of India celebrates life and humanity on a daily basis. The bustle and sound and scent of Kolkata can be matched by no other Indian city and attracts a lot of domestic and international tourists and travellers. Yet Goa remains a coveted vacation destination to the residents of Kolkata.

In spite of all the vintage allurement, Goa, however, resides closely in the minds of the people of Kolkata and they plan for Goa tour package from Kolkata enthusiastically of and on.
