Meeting point

Hotel Ganges Grand - Varanasi

On arrival

We will meet at Hotel Ganges Grand - Varanasi.
Before the tour begins, I will provide a comprehensive briefing that covers the tour protocol, and the starting and ending points, and address any questions that may arise in our guests' minds.

As tourists, you will have the opportunity to witness cremations on funeral pyres, allowing you to contemplate the transient nature of life. Observing the solemn last rites performed by many at the narrow alley ghats and witnessing young boys getting their heads shaved for the first time, you will come to realize the depth of unquestioning faith.

Our guests will leave with a profound sense of having experienced the City of Light rather than merely having visited it.

Things to note

Please wear sunglasses and a mask while walking. It's advisable to dress appropriately, as we will be visiting a temple during our walk. In the summer months, using an umbrella is recommended. Please adhere to your guide's instructions, but also immerse yourself in the experience.

Free Cancellation

You are free to cancel a booking anytime. We kindly remind you to cancel bookings you cannot arrive for. Being reported as absent decreases your customer level points and the benefits you can enjoy.
