  • The perfect activity for a solo woman traveller. As a solo woman traveling for the first time in Varanasi, hiring a guide from the Varanasi Walks was the best decision. Walking with Nomi allowed me to understand, discover and feel Varanasi in a way that would of not been possible on my own.

  • Incredible! Best way to experience Varanasi! There is no other way to experience Varanasi – taking a Varanasi Walks Tour is a MUST! Anyone visiting Varanasi should book a tour with Varanasi Walks – it is worth it 10,000 times.

  • Well worth the money! What fabulous tours! I totally enjoyed all of the tours I arranged through Varanasi Walks which included two boat tours and two walking tours. The tours were well paced and my guide Mr. Amrit was a wealth of information. I learned so much about Hindi traditions, Varanasi culture and history.
