Kolkata is the capital city of West Bengal. The former capital of British India, Kolkata is home to one of the oldest ports in the country. Kolkata has an old world charm that is reflected in its old Victorian era buildings, yellow ambassador cabs, hand pulled rickshaws and trams. Though the city has been restructured with flyovers, skyscrapers, multiplexes and business centers, Kolkata has been able to retain its essence. Victoria Memorial built in the memory of Queen Victoria is the landmark of this city. The other attractions include the Indian Museum, Marble Palace, State Archaeological Gallery, Academy of Fine Arts and Mother’s house. Kolkata has its own collection of bridges. The Rabindra Setu Bridge, popularly known as Howrah Bridge, Hooghly Bridge and Bally Bridge are a few of them.

We had a horrible travel experience from kolkata to digha. AC stopped working in middle of journey.
I had a bad trip as AC stop working in middle of journey and no one responded properly. I want compensation else will stop using it.
It was one of my wrost experience. I would suggest redbus, plz withdraw your tie-up from Friends Travels to keep your reputation alive. Reasons- 1. We book our tickets online by Rs.350 each. They are selling tickets by Rs.200 infront of us from counter. 2. They delayed to departure the bus by 1hr without any reason. 3. Staff behavior was bery bad. They just ignored us all over the journey. 4. No water bottle offered us even after asking the same. Directly denied. Though it was written at your website. 5. They stop the bus more the 25 times during the journey to take local passengers. It was worst than a local bus..! 6 And lastly they forced us to leave the bus middle of the journey and ask for take a local non-ac bus only because, they hadnt enough passenger. They left no choice for us. We were bound to take a local bus to reach our destination(Digha). So, I suggest every one also, dont take that type of bus, State Transports are better then them..
we had to wait for more than 3 hours to get a substitute bus as the scheduled bus was cancelled without any prior information. substitute bus quality was also very poor. a very pathetic experience.
