Tour description

Hello Namaste 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 no where 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.

Il guru è stato professionale, simpatico e molto disponibile anche su eventuali nostre preferenze di informazioni o luoghi da conoscere. Ha mostrato delle vie e dei dettagli della città non sempre famosi. Aspetti negativi: Non un tour economico sicuramente, 1000 rupie a persona per due ore è nettamente al di sopra della media. Un po' difficile seguire le spiegazioni per inglese non perfetto, per la pronuncia
