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.

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.

Visit to Death Hotel in Varanasi
"I was interested to see the only place I'm aware of in the world where people can go with the specific intention of having their spiritual needs prioritised at the moment of their physical death. Although the hostel was empty at the actual time of my visit, I understand over 40,000 people have done this at Mukti Bhawan since its inception in the early 1900's. The manager, Mr Dubey, was charming and informative and the experience of simply having visited this unique place was satisfying and thought provoking. My guide, Chandan Yadav, spoke excellent English and was a treasure trove of local cultural and historical points of interest. In fact, he was so good I hired him all over again for more exploration of Varanasi the next day!! Thank you ... all in all, a wonderful visit."..."
