Saurabh was amazing & kept us enthralled with his stories and description. Next day Anupam was with us on the food tour & was equally well versed and engaging. Both were very patient & helpful with the seniors in our group. Their talks gave perspective & made the tours really interesting.

There were 6 of us including a Sr Citizen and a pre-teen child. We did the following tours -
a) Early morning Temple Visit (Kashi Vishwanath, Annapurna Ji & Kal Bhairav Darshan
b) Sunset Boat tour (including evening Ganga Aarti) and
c) Sunrise Boat Tour + South Walk (City of Good Life Walk)

The tours were very well planned to ensure we covered all the important sites.
Our guide during the entire tour was Anupam. He was very attentive to the needs of our group. For eg. he ensured we had a wheelchair for the entire time during the temple tours. He engaged with everyone in the group and we were updated about the spiritual significance of various sites , history as well as the best placed to eat once the tour was over. We were satisfied we had chosen Roobaroo because in the limited time we felt we had covered the city very well.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Roobaroo Walks and especially, Mr. Anupam Singh, for showing us (my friends and I) the vibrant life and history of Banaras. Every ancient street, the spectacular ghats, the historic buildings, the famous street food had a story to tell, and Anupam narrated it beautifully. His knowledge and passion for the city’s landmarks and hidden gems made our trip truly memorable. Exploring Banaras with Anupam was a fun, insightful and enriching experience. Thank you, Anupam, for making Varanasi’s past come alive for us! Thank you for your enthusiasm, expertise, and for going beyond the call of duty, to put us at the heart of your thoughts and actions. You were totally committed to creating added value for us. I am absolutely delighted with Roobaroo’s stellar customer service, and look forward to many such magical walks and wonderful holidays with you.

Roobaroo was a fantastic discovery during my search for offbeat walks in Varanasi while traveling solo. Tulika, the booking manager, gave friendly guidance and her effervescence made planning my itinerary a breeze, from day one. Despite not having group walks on my travel dates initially, I struck gold with two walks in a day with Roobaroo before leaving Varanasi. I booked the North and South Varanasi walks, including a morning boat tour, led by the group leader, Anupam.

Exploring the alleys of both North and South Varanasi with Anupam was an enriching experience that delved deep into the city's cultural tapestry. He not only pointed out the physical landmarks but also shared captivating stories and historical anecdotes, providing context to the sights we encountered.

Walking through the labyrinthine streets, we witnessed the daily rhythms of life in Varanasi: from vibrant market scenes filled with the aroma of street food to the tranquil banks of the Ganges where devotees performed their rituals with unwavering devotion.

Anupam’s expertise helped us appreciate the architectural marvels of the temples and hidden gems within the alleys, each with its own tale to tell. We learned about the city's religious significance, its role as a center for learning and spirituality, and the enduring traditions that have shaped its identity over centuries.

Moreover, Anupam’s passion for Varanasi's history and culture was contagious, sparking lively discussions among the group and fostering a deeper connection to the city.

By the end of the walk, I had gained not only a better understanding of Varanasi's past and present but also a profound appreciation for its timeless allure. It was an immersive journey that left me with memories to cherish and a desire to explore more of this captivating city. Thank you, Tulika and Anupam for making my Banaras trip wholesome!! Highly recommend!!

Thank you so much to Anupam who showed us his Varanasi . He also accommodated a customised second walk as well as we were a little short on time .
He shared with us today a piece of his heart is what we felt.

I had heard so much about this walks from various friends and it was a pleasure to experience it first hand and can say that Varanasi without this guided tour wouldn’t have been so beautiful and meaningful .

He was patient, shared interesting stories obviously 😂and read some of his poetry. Overall Varanasi wouldn’t have been the same without him guiding us . Thanks and looking forward to the next one with the team .

I had signed up with Roobaroo Walks to be our Partner and heritage walk guide during our trip to Varanasi in Nov ‘23. They were highly recommended by a colleague who had enlisted their services before me. This was pne of the best decisions we made, for that trip. They are known to bring in a local flavour and touch to their experiential walks. I was also very particular about Anupam to be our guide. His extensive knowledge enriched our experience, and his ability to share local flavors added a delightful dimension to our trip. He is an amazing story narrator ! I would highly recommend their services. The kind of places we visited through Roobaroo - even the localities there may not have been to. Thank you for making our visit to Varanasi extremely memorable and informative !

Exploring the north of Varanasi was a captivating journey, as we walked through centuries-old alleys, temples, and vibrant markets. Anupam, the storyteller, shared many anecdotes around the mystique blend of tradition and spirituality that seamlessly coexist in the town of Varanasi. Walking these paths with Rubaroo felt like traversing history's echoes, a blend of tranquility and cultural richness that lingers long after the journey ends.
