Dawn boat ride: This morning ready at around 5am at your hotel. The subah, or morning, is for Banaras! Get up at the crack of dawn with us for this amazing boat journey. As the sun rises you will see those who flock to the riverside for morning worship. Along the way you will hear about the interesting history of the ghats and their patronage by the Maharaja’s who built them.The adventure ends with a short walking tour around Tulsi ghat’s hidden sun temple. After this walk, come back to your hotel and relax. Then afternoon be ready for another adventurous walk in the hidden alleys of Varanasi.

Northern Bazaars & hidden alleys walk: Few tourists ever wind their way through the bazaars in the Northern alleys of the old city where you will find hidden alleys leading directly through the sacred zone of Banaras to the oldest buildings of the city. As you enter the lanes of the Northern part of the city you will get to peep inside the shops, temples and lives of people who have never left their street for years. This bazaar has so many twists and turns we even get confused, but that is what makes it so great. You have an opportunity to learn tradition, culture & history of Varanasi and it offers a different experience.
