Banaras Wala Tours

Banaras Wala Tours

star-5
102
What makes my tours different from others is that i offer an authentic experience of Varanasi with an extremely knowledgeable guide to lead the way. Each tour is individually tailored to your interests so you get to see what is important to you. You can try traveler friendly street food, take a prive sunrise tour of the Ghats and ceremonies, wander through the winding back alleys and old city, see the Aghori Babas and temples, and experience how spirituality is so deeply woven into the lives of the people here. Having lived here my whole life and being a guide for the last 8 years has given me a deep knowledge of the city and the traditions, rituals and religions that it surrounds. During the tour I will pass on much of this to you so you can have a more meaningful experience of the city.

Cultural & Spiritual Trails of Old Town Varanasi Guided Walking Tour

star-5

Varanasi or traditionally known as Kashi (meaning light), is believed to be the oldest city on the planet standing today. We have seen people coming to Varanasi with great hopes & expectations, but most of the time we felt that they leave Varanasi without understanding the true essence of the city, its glorious past and spiritual history. Did you know that in ancient history people dreamt of dying in Varanasi only and no where else? Varanasi has been the most important place for people seeking liberation and enlightenment, even Buddha got enlightened very near to Varanasi. 1. This walking tour is a journey, of exploring Varanasi in its true sense, a great induction of the city, its history, its vibrant culture, and its people with lots of wonderful stories about the city, fun facts and must do things in the city. 2. You will explore the city's gems in unique style of ‘infotainment’ that you would easily miss exploring by our own and will make your journey to Varanasi truly special.
