Perfectly organised tour with a great guide. The water level of the Ganges had been exceptionally high and it meant we had the added benefit of being guided through the streets to get to the boat. Wonderful experience, knowledgeable guide and i thoroughly recommend the tour with GetYourGuide

Great tour

The tour guide picked me up at the hotel on time and did the tour as described. He was very friendly, gave valuable information and was able to answer all questions. Thank you

On my voucher it was written we would be picked up from our hotel at 5:30. Aft 5:40 I called and they said they were picking us up at 6:30. We received no phone call notifying us or an e-mail. The person on the phone said there was to much fog that morning and when someone came with the driver at 6:30 they told us they haven't changed the time on their form. We got to the site at almost 7:00 and we missed the sunrise and the beauty of the reason we signed up for the tour. The guide could not speak reasonable English. It was a huge disappointment. I asked for money to b returned and they did not even react to this request. I still want my money returned and have to decide what my next step will be. This was supposed to be the final activity in Varanasi after a wonderful visit.
