Durga Puja conducted tours by the Department of Tourism

Many people in this city know that during Durga Puja, the state government's Tourism Department organises all-night tours of Kolkata's most popular and famous Puja pandals, for a nominal fee. For locals and tourists alike, these tours are an excellent opportunity to experience the vibrancy and dynamism of Durga Puja. This year, given the Covid pandemic, there have understandably been modifications made to the tour, but the happy news is that it will go ahead.

A bus tour conducted in the year 2018

The tours will begin from the Tourism Centre, Kolkata at 3/2 B.B.D. Bag (East), Kolkata 700001. The change this year has been in the timing. Instead of all night, the tours will be conducted from 9.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. The other big change, of course, in keeping with the safety protocols issued by the Government, has been a 50 percent reduction in the maximum number of visitors who will be accommodated per tour. Therefore a 30-seater coach will now accommodate 15 people, while the 23-seater coach will limit the number of passengers to 11. All tours will include packed breakfasts and lunches, and will strictly follow Covid sanitization and social distancing protocol.
