Walk with us into the alleys of the Ansari weavers, sari makers and see the beautiful detail work done by hand in homes and courtyards by traditional Banaras artisans. A short history of the silk trade and elite artist courtesans’ role in the city is given as well.
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.Sofie, Montreal, Canada
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.Arista, Roodepoort, South Africa
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.Christine, Indiana, USA
