We enjoyed a lot the Boat Ride in Varanasi! It is worth waking up early to enjoy the increadible sunrise in the river and the views of the ghats from the boats. RJ was our guide, he is very friendly and attentive. After the boat ride, we could enjoy the free tour arroud the streets of Varanasi with RJ. We had few time for the visit but he arraged it perfectly to our schedule. We ask him to visit “the street life in Varanasi” and he showed us small streets of the city with good explanations. Is was a very nice tour! Thank you!
