There will be stops for sightseeing on route including visits to a potter’s colony, markets, a magnificent 60-domed mosque and an Anglican church considered to be one of the largest in Asia.
You will travel on board the Ganga Vilas. The newest member of the Antara fleet this 18-suite ship combines modern comfort with traditional style.
The tour will begin with a couple of day’s sightseeing in Kolkata.  A chance to experience this vibrant and sometimes chaotic, city but one that buzzes with life and has much to offer the visitor, from colonial architecture to temples, colourful flower markets, tasty street food and interesting museums.
