I enjoy my work as a guide because the most interesting part of my profession is meeting people from all over the world. Being a guide I love to take the initiative to make my Guest feel comfortable and let them know about our Religion, the opinion of the people and Know the religion and tradition well. Receiving people from all corners of the world with a warm welcome as a guest to India and saying goodbye to them as a good friend is my quality.

About the Tour

Rise early at 5am, when you’ll board a vehicle destined for Assi Ghat, the southernmost entry point to the holy River Ganges.

Guide explains the significance of the Ganges River in the Hindu religion. Stop at Assi Ghat to watch pilgrims bathing in the allegedly holy waters before visiting a series of temples to receive Hindu blessings.

Then, head to a stadium to watch pehalwans (wrestlers) fight one another in a mud pit before boarding a boat to cruise along the River Ganges.

Your cruise concludes at Manikarnika Ghat, one of the most sacred ghats in Varanasi. The bodies of devout Hindus are cremated here in order for their ashes to be carried away by the river.

Disembark here and wander to Golden Temple (Kashi Vishwanath), characterized by its pastel pink exterior and golden spire. Over tea, delve deeper into Hindu traditions before you bid your guide farewell after hotel drop-off.
