The 1-hour ride on the Ganga River was very interesting, then the pedestrian path followed the Varanasi streets back to the hotel.

We had a great time on this tour. The guide did a good job of educating us on the area and it was very interesting seeing the ghats from the river in the morning. We also did an evening tour with the same company and the contrast between morning and evening was very neat to see. There was a temple/mosque that we tried to see, but were unable as we didn't bring our passports. You may wish to ask your guide about this before starting the day as well, so you are properly prepared. As a first time visitor to Varanasi, I would recommend this tour to others as well.

We had a private SUNSET TOUR.The communication on the run up to the trip was amazing. We met our Guide Saban. His English was fantastic and he was very informative and got us great seats for the ceremony afterwards. The Aarti Boat trip is not to be missed when in Varanasi. Highly recommended!
