What to expect
The tour guide will pick you up at 9 am from your hotel in Varanasi and drive to Harishchandra Ghat (Cremation Ghat), where the walking tour will begin. First, walk up to Kedar Ghat where you will see locals taking their holy bath, doing rituals and prayers. From Kedar Ghat step into the narrow, full of life alleys with their residents, businesses, temples, vegetable vendors, cows and bulls. In the sections of the street, if you see a lot of vendors selling flowers, you would know there is an important temple nearby. Then, you will go down to the riverside near Ahilyabai Ghat and walk through Dasaswmedh Ghat. After a quick rest you will walk along the river up to Manikarnika Ghat, also known as the burning ghat for cremation. From there you will proceed back to nearby parking, where your driver will meet you and drive back to the hotel.

Varanasi Day Tour with Prakash Chaubey
Feb 2020 • Solo
I recently did a day tour of Varanasi.
Our tour guide was Prakash Chaubey.
He was fantastic.
Prakash has an incredible knowledge of the EVERYTHING!
His day tour was a perfect mix . I couldn’t believe the total cultural immersion in just a day !!!
Prakash made sure we experienced everything possible - and at an ideal pace.
Our tour had everything from :
1) an early morning at the Ganges (which included a boat ride) ;
2) a walking tour through the city with the highlight being the hidden cultural treasures down the secluded laneways.
3) beautiful food;
4) the religious ceremony in the evening back at the Ganges.

Prakash is a truly knowledgeable guide and any request for anything was accepted.

I’m sure our tour was one of the best on offer.

Prakash took us deep into the laneways of the city to see the real Varanasi.
I doubt you would get that on other tours —- we certainly didn’t see any others tours in the hidden areas we were.

If you’re thinking of doing anything in Varanasi, Prakash is your man !

Thankyou again Prakash.
My day in Varanasi was truly memorable !

Excellent tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
The guide was waiting in the hotel foyer at the time we chose (communication was via WhatsApp the day before the scheduled tour) He spoke good English and took us places we would never have found by ourselves, giving us the confidence to return by ourselves on later days. He explained what we were seeing and answered all our questions, and the three hours flew by. We can highly recommend this tour.

Falling in love with Varanasi
Dec 2018 • Solo
I discovered Varanasi through a walk with Raghaw Rahi, a very professional and friendly guide. I got to know unimaginable places, hidden traditions, amazing people, and, above all, a living city.
That's how I fell in love with Varanasi.
