Programma

Join me for an experiential walk through one of the oldest alley ways in Benaras and discover some interesting spots and engage in activities that'll give you a taste of the local life.

I will take you on an interactive walk through beautiful hidden alley ways and encourage you to see the past hiding in plain sight. This tour will give you an opportunity to acclimatize with the culture and understand how people have been living here for thousand of years.

We'll navigate our way through the quaint narrow lanes and visit an ancient Shiva temple, an Ashram (An Ashram is a spiritual hermitage or a Hindu monastery. They are places devoted to spiritual activities like yoga, meditation or religious instruction) and a private residence where you get an opportunity to interact with the family. Walking through the narrow alley ways with a variety of smell and vision will give you a phenomenal experience.

The rich history of the area can be felt to this very day, and we will dive into stories of tremendous change and regeneration that make this one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Varanasi.

To fulfill your taste buds, we'll try some local foods which are only true to Old Benaras and are of the best kind!

This walk can best be regarded as an open-air seminar where we will facilitate a greater understanding of Hindu culture.
Other things to note
Please carry an umbrella during the monsoon (mid July to end of September) also carry some cash with you which you will need to pay to the auto rickshaw drivers travelling from your hotel and for your personal expenses.
This experience is LGBTQ friendly. Private group walks are available on request.

Would recommend! Rupak was a great host/guide. We saw things we never would have if we'd gone out on our own. It was really special experience. Also, we had the BEST masala dosa, thanks to Rupak, of our three weeks in India. :) Don't hesitate to book this experience!

Kunal took us on a late afternoon adventure. This also was totally amazing. Explaining the cycle of life according to Hindu religion. Explaining the death rebirth and final peace. Was so emotional and spiritual. Really is an amazing tour. Kunal was the man for it. ❤️

You can choose the wrong guide in india. You can. But Kunal... well. He covers everything that a great tour guide needs. He walked the streets of the city since his early childhood. He greets the guys on the streets, in the shops, in the temples and everywhere in the city as a good friend would great. He knows basically everything about Varanasi and beyond. He reflects on its cultural, political, religious and social drivers. He has an answer to every question (even the ones you don't ask). We wandered the streets of Varanasi in a way you wouldn't be able to in three lifetimes. Had like a good local friend who guided us around and filled every corner of the street with his insights, presented us his perspective, introduced us to inspirational people and made (simply "made") our trip. If you miss a tour like this, you miss Varanasi.

I am very satisfied with the tour. The city, Varanasi, had seemed chaotic at first. But, after participating the tour and listening to his clear explanation, I found the city is so attractive. He has abundant background knowledge about Varanasi. I gradually came to love the city. What’s more, he is a good portrait photographer. Thus, he can take many INSTAGRAMMABLE photos of you in allies of old Varanasi city. I strongly recommend you to take this tour.
