Explore Varanasi Like a Local & Drink the Best Lassi

Description

Interested in learning about what life in Varanasi is like through the eyes of a local? Then join us for an unforgettable tour of Varanasi as we explore the tiny alleyways and streets of one of the world's most fascinating cities.

Varanasi is a holy city famous for its ghats, which are mostly used for bathing, but there are also several 'burning ghats' where bodies are cremated in public. The main one is Manikarnika, where you'll often see funeral processions weaving their way through the backstreets to this ghat. I'll take you here and share more about our holy traditions so that you can have a better understanding of our culture and what makes it so unique.

While touring Varanasi, we'll also sample some of the cities best street food and snacks from my favorite street food stalls. In Varanasi, they still make Lassi in the original style with their bare hands, which you must try when you visit Varanasi. Some people consider this Lassi spot to be one of the best in India, and we look forward to hearing what you think of the Lassi here.

I can't wait to share the secrets of Varanasi with you on our tour!

Great tour and great guide! I spent the whole day with Vicky who knew everything about Varanasi like all those cultural and religious issues. He took me to hidden places and gave me an amazing insight into that local society. Finally, we did a boat trip on the Ganges River and joined the evening rituals from the boat with the best view of the ceremony. I can highly recommend that tour!

Amit showed us Varanasi the local way. We loved the tour so much that I would recommend everyone to experience it yourself. We went to places we would've never visited ourselves. Amit brought us to one of his favorite restaurants for lunch and the food was very, very delicious! ask Amit for directions. You will definitely have a great experience with them!
