You can try itenary as under. First start your trip from Allahabad, see all the place including Sangam ( a day trip) afternoon come to Varanasi. Next day morning visit Kashi vishwanath Darshan and after book a Auto or car for local Varanasi places and Ram Nagar Fort. and in evening Ganga boating and from the boat see Ganga Aarti. Next day check out from hotel book car to Visit Sarnath and back to Varanasi or Mughalsarai to catch train for Gaya.
If your booking is done than on 4th reach Varanasi and do river boating and Gangs Aarti in the evening.
On 5th early morning do Kashi vishwanath Darshan and book car for one day Allahabad tour and back Varanasi in evening.
On 6th can do local Varanasi Darshan and Sarnath visit.
And on 7th check out and catch train. In this case Gaya tour is not possible because it requires one more day in your hand.
