It was my third visit to Váránasí, but I didn't have the chance to explore properly the main city and its beauty. Therefore we decided to take a guided tour and explore the labyrinth of the city and its hidden places, which we wouldn't have been able to find without help of Anupam - guide of the Roobaroo walks. He definitely made the walk memorable with all the ancient stories, current situation and tasting of the local products. We also appreciated his help when we needed to get quickly to the other side of Váránasí.

Enjoyed walking the gallis of Varanasi with Anupam who throws in a great mix of mythology, history and culture. The city has much to offer, and many hidden treasures, small shrines, tiny and intriguing little pathways. Our walk was well paced, sometimes brisk and then with just the right halts at places of interest. And great food – loved the kachoris.

Overall an amazing experience.Saurabh and Anupam made this memorable and wholesome .The history of Varanasi,its connection through the kashi vishwanath temple,the ghats,the alleyways,the tea shops and savouries,the electric tuk tuk and the chaotic streets with no anger but smiles on people's faces are so captivatingly described by these 2 storytellers, as they call themselves. Definitely one must make a visit in one's lifetime.

ESSENTIALS VARANASI WALK - I sent my parents for this walk on the day of their 40th Wedding Anniversary, They saw the city with fresh eyes, from a deeper, more philosophical point of view, all the time enjoying interesting sights, sounds, smells and smells of Benares. The team guiding the walk was very respectful and even had a surprise planned for them

Hi Priyanka, It was a pleasure hosting your parents and it was more special because of their 40th wedding anniversary. I organised a Jaimala session in between the chaotic flower market, they loved all the aspects of the city. We hope to see you & your parents again in the near future. Wish you the very best for all future travels :)
