Varanasi has been a cultural centre of North India for several thousand years, and is closely associated with the Ganges. Hindus believe that death in the city will bring salvation, making it a major centre for pilgrimage.

Start your journey with the hotel pick-up where your guide and cab waits for you. Tour starts either at 5:00 in the morning or 6:00 depending upon the season. Time shall be confirmed to you post booking. Enjoy the city with more than 2000 temples that includes the Kashi Vishwanath Temple also called the Golden temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.

    Excellent service very knowledgeable guide

    Guide was very helpful and flexible although I have arrived late. The sunrise boat trip was for me the highlight. The service was excellent. Without a Guide I would not have received the insight and information about the things I saw. I would only recommend the tour everyone. Please let the guide know if you are more interested in the morning ritual or the sunrise

    A very fine sunrise boat tour and excellent guiding by 5-star guide Kasif, by car, boat and walk at the Ghats (riverfronts). Kasif told us everything of interest and made the trip memorable. Highly recommended!
