Most of the time I am turned off by tourist tours, but this was definitely the highlight of my trip to India. Jai (our tour guide) conveniently met us at our hotel and took my group of 4 friends on the hidden bizar tour. He took us into places we would have never found, told us about the city in such a casual manner it honestly felt like he was just a friend showing us around a new city. He had a great sense of humour and made us feel so comfortable in the craziness and hecticness of Varanasi!
We had such a great experience on the hidden bizar tour we also did the night tour to the holy cremations along the ganges. I was actually really grateful having Jai because when you go to the sacred site where cremations take place you really don't know how far you can go or when you can and can't take pictures. You get to learn all about the rituals and history behind Hinduism which just ads to experience.
I can't recommend taking a tour with Varanasi Walks more! You learn and see so much about the city that you just wouldn't discover when you wander the city alone.
