Overview

Birth and Death are words we chose to describe the doorways in and out of a cycle. This cycle is connected to a larger cycle which awaits our return. It is all just like breathing. Remove the fear and judgement to recognise the same pattern as a principle everywhere.

We booked the Varanasi Life, Death and Re-birth walk with Indrajeet, who kept us informed re time of pickup etc., and gave us the option of changing the time as we were the only 2 booked on it. Indrajeet arrived very promptly and we set off on our tour, but because it rained so hard we had to unfortunately cut the tour short by 2 hours. We were given the option of continuing the next night or would be given a full refund - we decided to continue the next night, and we are so glad we did. Indrajeet was very informative, took us round the small narrow lanes of Varanasi, past little shops in the old market selling all the offerings for the cremations, the flower market, and of course the main cremation site, followed by a walk along the river back to our hotel. Indrajeet answered all our questions, and we had loads, we didn’t feel rushed at all - the walk was at a very steady pace. Indrajeet is a charming and a very knowledgeable guide, and you will not be disappointed in this tour - a definite must. Thank you again Indrajeet.

i have taken their tours twice now, and they provide one of the best services. The guide was very professional and Indian Government approved with 9years of experience. No doubt he was open to every questions i had and also was very knowledgeable on off topic discussions.

Indrajeet Kumar took us on the walking through the narrow alleyways and byways near the Ganges. He was insightful, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He patiently answered all of our questions and adjusted the route and length of our tour to match our interests. One could not ask for a better guide to the area. I highly recommend this gentleman. You will not be disappointed.
