Non posso valutare il tour né il guru perché dopo la prenotazione mi ha chiamato per annullare. Mi ha dato una seconda opzione il giorno dopo, da me non fruibile

Great choice of places to visit. Anant is very charismatic and friendly! We ended the afternoon walk at a place of choice for the sunset ceremony

Excellent tour, our best guru walking tour so far in India. Anant is very friendly, respectful and he took us to really interesting places. Highly recommend. He also didn't try and get us to buy things like other guides have done.

This was by far one of the best parts of our India trip! We saw SO much of Varanasi we would have never seen without this tour and we finished with the best seats to watch the evening Aarti - this tour is a MUST for anyone visiting Varanasi! Thank you so much Anant
