          Varanasi 2 day Tour - March 2024
          We did the Varanasi 2 day tour with Mr Anish Jha (or AJ) and we couldn't be happier. The tour itinerary was well planned and made sure we had sufficient time to enjoy each and every place on our list. Anish is very knowledgeable and told us about many historical facts about the city, its temples and the rituals which make the city unique. We had the best time walking the lanes of the city, early morning boat ride along Ganga river, the Ganga Aarti, visiting world renowned temples. Overall, if you want the complete Varanasi experience, along with the history of the place, AJ is your man!

          Wonderful Experience! Thank you AJ!
          I did 5 tours with AJ, and each one was just fantastic! He explained so much to me about the everything we were experiencing, and really made Varanasi come alive. He took great pictures which he was more than happy to share with me. He was prompt, friendly, and professional, and gave me a truly exceptional experience! I highly recommend AJ as a truly exemplary guide when visiting Varanasi!

          Walking tour
          It was a great tour! We walked through varanasi and the guide took me to the hidden gems. In the mean time there was enough time to ask questions and look around. The guide spoke excellent english and had a lot of knowledge about india/varanasi! I would definately recommend this tour and this guide.

          A must do experience
          Wow, what an experience it was. We had a chance to have a walking tour in Bengali Tola. We passed through the narrow streets and saw the local areas of bengalis, South Indians people. We also saw an akhada. It is a must do tour for travellers in Varanasi.

          Great experience in varanasi
          We were a group of 10 persons, and found the company very interesting on TripAdvisor. We decided to use their services and booked the Morning boat tour. The guide A J was too good. He was very humble, and explained everything to us in the best possible way. We started with a boat ride and saw the sunrise and then the best walking tour of the city. We recommend this to everyone coming to Varanasi.

          Best way to experience the city is a Walking tour
          We Were a family of 6 and booked a Walking Tour with Walk 2 Xplor. They took us through narrow streets of the city, and showed us some really awesome places which we otherwise could not have visited. We truly recommend Walk 2 Xplor to people travelling to Varanasi.

          The best tour I ever had
          I did 2 tours with Alok! To meet him was the best what could happen during my stay in Varanasi . He helped me in any way. Culture, meeting people, even my wifi problem he solved beside guiding me so well and taking care. Great Alok! Thats what I call an amazing tourguide.

          Informative & Interesting day in Varanasi
          We were met in the foyer of our hotel by our guide for the day A.J. who we found to be very knowledgeable about the local customs and history of Varanasi. A.J. spoke excellent English and his gentle and patient manner made it very easy for us to enjoy our day.We highly recommend this tour and are very grateful to A.J for making our day tour in Varanasi a very memorable experience.

          Learning experience
          An amazing experience.I learned so much from my guide, Krishan, who was able to communicate his passion to me. He was very kind, patient and friendly. He did not rush me so I could take pictures when we were walking around. His English was very good so it was easy for me to understand him. I asked him a lot of questions about life in Varanasi and he was able to talk about real Indian life as he is experiencing it on a daily basis. I wish I had had more time to book other excursions with him.

          Varanasi through the eyes and heart of the best guide possible
          My husband and I had the fortune to spend two and a half days exploring Varanasi and we feel so lucky that we had A. J. Alok as our local "ambassador". Not only he is a very knowledgeable person about the historic places/sites, monuments, hidden places etc. of his hometown, but the way that he explained everything to us (like a storyteller!) was unforgettable. We had an evening excursion boat ride to understand the meaning of why the ghats will be so crowded every night as hundreds of pilgrims return to the Ganges river for Ganga aarti. A. J. explained every detailed that we were witnessing from the rituals performed every day on this sacred river to the significance/meaning of each ghat for Hindus and also the cremations. It was an unforgettable experience.. In the morning, A. J. help us to understand again with a boat ride the morning rituals along the Ganges. Also we had the opportunity of walking through the labyrinthine streets of the oldest part of the city to see hidden sights far away from the main tourist thoroughfare. If you are considering to visit this sacred city, both my husband and I can't recommend you enough to do so with A.J.!!
