The best option would be a return flight to Varanasi, then ook a hotel on the river for a couple of days and hire a tuk tuk or car to get you around.

There are a series of buses running all time from Varanasi to Allahabad from Bus depot just opposite cantt Railway station. Government buses (non-AC) are safest and will drop you to Allahabad in exactly 3 hours, Road condition extemely good

Varanasi is a vey Beautiful place in India.The city of Shiva is one of the holiest places in India, where Hindu pilgrims come to wash away a lifetime of sins in the Ganges or to cremate their loved ones. Varanasi, previously named Benares and Kashi (City of Light) – it was renamed after the Varuna and Asi Rivers, which meet here – has always been an auspicious place to die, since expiring here offers moksha (liberation from the cycle of birth and death). The city is the beating heart of the Hindu universe, a crossing place between the physical and spiritual worlds, and the Ganges is viewed as a river of salvation, an everlasting symbol of hope to past, present and future generations. The magical but sometimes overwhelming city is where the most intimate rituals of life and death take place in public on the city’s ghats. The accessibility to the practices of an ancient but still living religious tradition is what captivates many visitors, and a walk along the ghats or a boat ride on the river is one of India’s most absorbing experiences.
