Let Us Go takes you on a Midnight Heritage Tour of Kolkata: see the abandoned Maidan, illuminated Howrah Bridge, and more.

What Is It?

Ever wanted to tour the city at night? Rediscover Kolkata’s oldest buildings under the stars? Wanted to learn about the city but not daring enough to brave the crowds?  This Midnight Tour is here for you. Let Us Go is a well-known walking tour company and they’re going to give you on one of the most sought after experiences – seeing the city in the middle of the night!

See the Victoria Memorial without the couples, an abandoned and peaceful Maidan, Howrah Bridge illuminated in all its glory, Howrah Station minus the hawkers and the chaos, and no traffic. You’ll even stop for chai at one of the city’s dhabas.

Super bonus: it’s much cooler in the night so you can really appreciate the city without the sweat and heat.

Who Is It For?

New to the city or been here for ages, this tour is for everyone because you get to see Kolkata like never before. Heritage lovers, photographers, couples, people who wish to see Kolkata at night, and even kids can come.
