You can miss whatsoever in Varanasi but don’t miss a boat ride tour. It is said that ‘there is no morning like the one in Varanasi and Ganga Aarti in Evening to experience Hindu spirituality’. We run boat ride tour both in morning and evening. Both versions have their own experience and leisure. You can choose any of it as per your convenience and timing that suits you. Morning Tour starts at 5 AM and Evening at 5 PM respectively.
1. Morning Sunrise Tour:
We are here to help you experience the beautiful morning of Varanasi. Boating in the Ganges River and having a cool breeze at face while watching a beautiful sunrise will be an experience that can’t be explained in words. Starting from Assi ghat, at 5 AM, where we’ll attend a morning ritual believed to remove all our negative energies. This morning tour will take you on a boat ride along the banks of river Ganga where you can see a flock of devotees wash away their sins by dipping in the holy river. Rest assured that your boat ride will be safe and surreal. We’ll cover many popular Ghats and temples in-between. All this while you’ll not just look around quietly but our storyteller will explain to you the science behind the rituals and the significance of different Ghats. These stories will make you feel connected with city local life.
