Overview

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.

Manish was a really good guide. He speaks very good English, very understandable. His explanations were what we needed a he took time for us to take photos, and ask him questions. He also gave us some tips about where to go for dinner!
