          Lots in information in a friendly and informative way.
          We really enjoyed this tour. The sunrise boat tour was great and our guide provided a lot of interesting information and insight. We really appreciated his knowledge about Varanasi, Sarnath, and the surrounding areas. I recommend this tour.

          The most wonderful tour! Thank you Bharat & thank you Varanasi!
          We had the most incredible tour of Varanasi, lead by our very knowledgeable & talented guide, Bharat. We started with a sunrise boat ride which was extremely moving and peaceful. Then we went around a few temples and sacred places where we learned about their history and culture. Bharat is very knowledgeable and has great visual aids to help tell the history and religion. In the evening, we went to the sacred evening ritual where we had great seats to watch the ceremony. It was so moving to see so many people coming to watch/participate every day. Thank you again to our guide Bharat, and our great driver! If you are traveling to Varanasi, this tour is an absolute must do!

          Good experience of Varanasi in one day!
          We had a great time with Bharat during our full day tour of Varanasi. He was very knowledgeable and punctual and it was nice to have breaks in between all the attractions. The Ganges sunrise rowboat and Aarti ceremony were definitely interesting experiences and must be done! The tour of Sarnath was thorough and we learned a lot about Buddhism. The walks around the old city were brief but he did bring us to a delicious sweets store where we were able to buy some souvenirs to bring back home. A few reasons why I only gave 4 stars - During the Aarti ceremony, our guide disappeared for 45 mins after saying he needed to use the bathroom. The ceremony had begun and my husband and I had some questions and it would have been helpful if he was around to provide us some insight as to what was going on... Also, after the morning Ganges boat ride, we were told by our guide that 'tipping' was optional to the boat rower and not included in our tour price, so we gave him a reasonable amount. Or so we thought. Because after we gave him the tip, we were told by our guide that 'most tourists tip XX amount', which made us feel bad especially when he said it was optional. If there was a set price expected, it should have been mentioned upfront. Regardless of the above, we still had an amazing time with this tour and Bharat was a good guide =) Jenn & Jon - Toronto, Canada

          Great experience, recommended the service. Boat ride on the Ganges especially sunrise: must do
          Mr Sunil Sahani and his team of boatmen were most helpful and informative about the sights on the ride. The sunrise rowboat ride was very relaxing and spiritually uplifting. The Ganga Aarti darshan from the evening trip also covering all of Kashi's ghats was a good experience. They were punctual, boats clean and staff arranged to meet us to escort us to the boarding ghats.

          Highly Recommend!
          Overall a great experience! Our guide, Wasim, was fantastic — he absolutely made our two days in Varanasi. We were traveling with an elderly group member, and he was so kind and helpful in moving around the city with her. He shared so much interesting history and information about the different places and traditions. The hotel was very safe and comfortable. The Arti was a highlight, and Wasim made arrangements for us to view the ceremony from a third-story balcony, which was a huge bonus for being able to appreciate the scale of the whole experience. The only reason for four stars instead of five was that we arrived at the airport without someone to pick us up, despite confirming our arrival and flight times repeatedly. However, Tour Varansi quickly made contact with another driver already at the airport and organized transportation to our accommodations.

          Great tour with Bharat!
          Definitely recommend this tour. Bharat was a great guide, really informative and friendly. I found Bharat was fascinating on the meaning and beliefs of Hinduism. The sunrise boat trip is worth doing and seats for the evening ceremony on the ghat meant we could see everything. We also went to temples and had a walk round old Varanisi. We also had the most delicious samosas! Highly recommend, we stayed at Shiva Ganges View Guesthouse right on the Ganges which meant it was also easy to do an eve walk along the ghats and explore a bit more.

          Best Varanasi experience!
          Sayed Hassan Mehid (Maggi) went above and beyond to make our experience the best one possible. He was very accommodating to our needs, and always made sure we were well attended and had all the information we needed. He was also very punctual and courteous! Varanasi is very chaotic, so you need a guide like Maggi to avoid feeling overwhelmed!

          A day full of interesting experiences in Varanasi
          We had a great day, with our guide, Bharat. He took us on a boat trip on the Ganges, to enjoy the sunrise. Then we visited a series of temples, ruins and a museum. We found out about the history of different religions in Varanasi. I'd really recommend this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

          Getting the most from one day...
          The tour delivered on all that it promised, and the opportunity to return to our hotel at times during the day meant that the long day had a good balance. The guide was knowledgeable shared many small details as we drove, walked and talked, that made a real difference to how much we enjoyed our day.

          Absolutely phenomenal - the best tour in India
          BOOK THIS TOUR!!!! This was hands down the best tour we had in India. Bharat is truly the most incredible tour guide - he was so flexible with our schedule and what we wanted to see, and made sure we had enough time at each stop to get what we wanted out of the tour. We asked to stop at Blue Lassi in the afternoon as well as to try to squeeze in the Ganga Aarti ceremony in the evening before our flight, and he made sure we were able to get the best view of the Ganga Aarti as well as make it to our flight on time. He went out of his way to honor every request we had, and made our day so special by buying us candles to float on the Ganges during our morning boat ride, chai throughout the day when we were cold, and the most amazing samosas for a snack in the afternoon. He found the best rooftop spot for us to watch the Ganga Aarti and gave us the best advice and information throughout the day on everything that we saw. I have never felt so safe and cared for on a tour in India, and can’t wait to come back to Varanasi just to take another tour with him. Thank you so much for everything!!!!

          We had such an amazing time on the tour! Hands down the best one we’ve done in India! They were super responsive to what we wanted to see and were super flexible! We were able to see everything in a day which was super convenient! Bharat was absolutely the most amazing guide I’ve ever had. He’s super knowledgeable and accommodating. We could tell that he truly cared about his tourists. He literally bought us chai when he saw that we were cold and bought us the most amazing samosa as a snack. Definitely get him if you can!

          Great tour with Bherat
          We had a great experience on a one and a half day tour of Varanasi with Bherat. Bherat had deep knowledge of Hindu and Buddhist history and practices, and shared a lot of information about the places we visited. We learned and saw so much in a short time, and were satisfied with our visit. Bherat answered our questions in detail and was a great host.

          Unique experience!
          Visita Unica, we have been with Mr Waseem forn2 days. Perfect organization, we got best in class seats for the celebration, front line on a roof top dominating the whole scene in front of the Gange river. Waseem added value to our visit by telling us all the histories and details of the religion, traditions and history of Varanasi and India. He also took good care of us making tasting local specialities in safe places with good healthy food and drink. Thank you and warmly suggested tour.

          We loved our experience! Varanasi is a crowded city which can be stressful to deal with, but our guide sujeet made our time so enjoyable. He showed us around and was truly excited to do so. Timing was well managed and we were able to edit the tour how we saw fit. Sujit showed us the best places to get authentic banarasi sarees, drink hot chai, and had connections to help us skip lines. The ganga boat ride cannot be missed, either!

        Met at the airport by a company representative and introduced to our driver. Then our guide took over and presented an excellent tour. We were well looked after by our guide, Wasim and driver, Singh. Good view of Aarti from the balcony and just us and one other couple on the sunrise boat to view the Ganges cremation site and candle release. It was extremely busy festival weekend but they navigated the crowds to ensure we got the most out of the trip. Thank you Tour Varanasi

        While scanning through things to do in Varanasi on TripAdvisor, came across this and what a brilliant combination of tours activities it was. Just booked it and got relaxed as this package included 02 nights accommodation and vice versa pick-up and drop to and from airport.

        Guide Bharat was super amazing and kg through old alleyways.

        A must take for every first timers.

        My husband and I arranged a 3 days private tour of Varanasi. From my first communication with the company, I found them to be responsive, organized, and flexible. Each time I sent an email, I had a response the next morning! That really increased my confidence. On the ground, our experience was also excellent. The hand-offs from tourvaranasi was flawless; every interaction went without a hitch. We upgraded our vehicle (highly recommended) to a four-wheel drive with air conditioning. Given the condition of roads in some parts of this city that was money well-spent. Our driver, who was with us for almost the entire trip, was terrific--warm, courteous, funny, and a very patient and careful driver. Our Madin booked by then was although new but was all satisfactory, and a couple of them were really memorable. My compliments to Vimal and Vandana for arranging such a good 'tasting menu' of Varanasi, for being such terrific communicators, and for taking such good care of us.

        Highly recommended !

        Fabulous trip to varanasi ,
        I have visited varanasi on the eve of Maha shivaratri.It is so fabulous.Reaching to varasani by train or plane is convenient. Some people are visiting by bus also anyway, those are covering all the visiting places by bus itself.It is known that in
        varanasi one crore Shiva Lingas are present.If we visit all , we will get mukthi.108ghats are there, in which Dashwamedha is known as main ghat.Ganga harati mahotshava will be in the evening at 6: 45 pm.Boating, tourist guide facility, near temples, annapurna mandir, Banaras Hindu University, Diesel Locomotive Works are all present there and they will make our day extraordinary.But village culture will be observed, and non veg availability causing negative things.

        Our walks and boat rides with Tour Varanasi provided a memorable—and delicious—introduction to one of the world’s most venerated cities. Our guide Ajay was punctual, energetic, thorough, and cheerful. As we enjoyed sunrise on the Ganges, he shared family sto
        ries, city history, and Hindu mythology, which helped us make sense of a way of life so different from ours. And what a treat to learn about Varanasi food traditions by tasting yummy bites in stalls hidden away in the lanes of the Old City. Ajay loves his city and it shows!
