English speaking tour guide for boat rides

Hello,

Does anyone know where to obtain an English speaking tour guide for the boat rides in Varanasi? Would really like to understand the culture and significance of everything but don't speak a word of Hindi.

You won't need guide for the boat ride, eventually if you want to know about the history and culture of Varanasi, you canhire a guide or you can get a book for it.

Thank you very much for the replies. I think a guide will help during a boat ride as they can explain all the different ghats as you pass them by and will be much better then just getting a guide book.

That is very nice way to promote yourself Avinash but TA traveler forum is not for self promoting. I think your post will be removed soon.
