Overview
More
We help the visitors to feel the aura of this spiritual city with the help of stories from the past when wandering in the backstreets, markets & ghats. We walk in the old palaces, alleys and weave the threads of nostalgic history of this wonderful city. We make sure that the guests feel like they are like among the locals of Varanasi. Our another destination is Sarnath which is full positive vibes of compassion & enlightenment of Lord Buddha which also overshadow the visitors and they feel like being under the bless of Buddha.

We have done a walking tour before in Varanasi but Karan was able to show us different things. He’s a font of knowledge and his English and manner is excellent. He takes you around the nooks and crannies you’d never find yourself. Highly recommended!
