Superb Experience: The Best in Varanasi
We booked for Corporate Tour involving VIP delegates from across India. It was a really well organised and extremely engaging experience.

This included the Ganga Aarti through boat, Classical musical performance at International Music Ashram & enjoying local delicacies.

The experience was surreal.
We also witnessed Aarti from right
in front of where it was happening. It was totally enchanting.

Music was heavenly. We literally got goosebumps. All of us started tapping our feet and hands. I was so mesmerised that we couldn’t click pics or video.

We have received brilliant reception of the above from the Delegates. Kudos to Aayush and team for bringing such brilliant experience for all of us.

Varanasi transfigured
An afternoon walking tour revealed the sorts of things you might fantasise about finding, but never do in solo exploration - hidden temples, a surprise view of the Ganges past a Mughal-era mosque, a flower market with garlands & marigolds piled higher and more fragrantly than any foodstuff.

So we traipsed, yawning yet curious, onto a boat tour at five the next morning. Which is when the beauty and strange rhythms of the city really revealed themselves. Morning bathers by the dozen, ghats leading from one to the next anarchically if inevitably - and the rituals of death, more visible than anywhere outside a warzone.

It's very calming, somehow, and leaves you moved.

Thanks to Aayush and his sensational team for the sort of experience to cherish and remember until, well, the end.

Rivendell, a bunch of hobbits and Gandalf
That's how I pictured ourselves while Ayush was navigating us through the narrow labyrinths of the mystical and magnificent Banaras. We explored the Northern Ghats, devoured the delicious Malaaiyo, encountered the educational institutions of some great alumni from Indian poetry scene 😉
Saw all cultures and beliefs converging into one space, modifying themselves to suit to the modern times. The tales from the oldest civilisations(arguably) wrapped up in a 3-hour walk, highly recommended.
Roobaroo Walks splendid job.
