What makes my tours different from others is that i offer an authentic experience of Varanasi with an extremely knowledgeable guide to lead the way. Each tour is individually tailored to your interests so you get to see what is important to you. You can try traveler friendly street food, take a prive sunrise tour of the Ghats and ceremonies, wander through the winding back alleys and old city, see the Aghori Babas and temples, and experience how spirituality is so deeply woven into the lives of the people here. Having lived here my whole life and being a guide for the last 8 years has given me a deep knowledge of the city and the traditions, rituals and religions that it surrounds. During the tour I will pass on much of this to you so you can have a more meaningful experience of the city.

Photography Fixer and Guide in the Most Colorful Holy City

Photography Fixer and Guide in the Most Colorful Holy City

star-5
5
For over 12 years, I have worked with world-famous photographers, documentary makers, Fujifilm workshops, arranging their experiences to provide amazing images around India, with a specialty in the complex, chaotic and exceedingly magical City of Lights, Varanasi - the holiest city of India. I have good connections with the local community and I can arrange virtually all scenarios for film crews, photographers, documentary makers, TV channels, and journalists. Some of my most requested subjects are: real Sadhus and Aghori (Holy men who eat dead human bodies), Naga baba (Holy men who live without clothing), Varanasi Wrestling schools, shoots at the flower Bazaar, the traditional laundry place (Dhobi Ghat) and of course, the Manikarna Burning Ghat (where bodies are cremated). I am flexible and can work to the demanding, detailed requirements of a professional, or provide more relaxed arrangements for photography enthusiasts in more of a guiding role.

Varanasi tour package for solo female traveler

Varanasi tour package for solo female traveler

We have seen huge growth in number of solo female travelers to Varanasi. Though, they have some safety fear of travelling to a small city such as Varanasi but style of travel offers reassurance in a Varanasi that might sometimes be more challenging for women and they have the additional security of being led by a local who understands the culture and the region perfectly, boost their confidence to visit solo to Varanasi. Therefore, keeping all these points in mind, this tour package is designed for those solo female travelers who wish to visit Varanasi and travelling solo. Being a small city, there are extremely low chances that they will find any group movement which can comply with their dates, flight schedule or choice of places they wish to see and activities they wish to do and thus this tour package is completely private and everyone involved during your Varanasi visit will be completely dedicated towards your services.
