Come and join our contribution-based walking tour to learn about this vibrant city’s history, heritage and more with some of the most passionate local tour guides who will not just take you around Varanasi’s most important sites but will also share their own secret tips on how to experience Varanasi as a local!

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 and expectations, but most of the time we felt that they leave Varanasi without understanding the true essence of the city, and its glorious past and spiritual history.

Did you know that in ancient history people dreamt of dying in Varanasi only and nowhere else? Varanasi has been the most important place for people seeking liberation and enlightenment, even Buddha got enlightened very near to Varanasi.

This walking tour is a journey, of exploring Varanasi in its true sense, this walking tour will enrich you and will change your perspective of the city, and will make your journey to Varanasi truly special.

Duration: 90 minutes.

Don't forget to bring water, sunglasses, sunscreen, and umbrella (in case of rainy season or summers).

How to find me: At the St. Thomas Church, Girja Ghar, Ramapura Luxa, Varanasi

Hi, this was a very interesting tour with Anant. He is such a great snd knowledgeable guy and explained everything so well. We even went inside a government hospital, got to taste some local specialities, entered one of the burning ghats, visited temples and got to see places, where you would not visit on your own and and. Really interesting experience - I would definitely recommend this tour!
