Set on the banks of the river Ganges, Varanasi has long been a place of pilgrimage with ceremonial offerings, lighting of funeral priers and the washing away of sins all daily occurrences on the river’s edge. Varanasi is one of the most evocative and vibrant places in the world and you could just sit back and watch the world pass you by here with a steady hum of people going about their daily and colourful lives. With your private guide, over your two nights in Varanasi, you’ll explore the Ganges by boat on morning and evening cruises, the best way to see the city.
