The oldest living city, the city of five names, the city of Shiva, the city of complete contrasts, the city where life and death are both celebrated...I could go on and on.
Roobaroo brings this experience to life! Fully so. We were there on Nov 11, 2019 for Dev Deepavali and what a time it was!
We did two walks with them, the Sunset Tour and the Ganga Aarthi, on November 11, and then the next day the Dev Deepavali experience tour. Both were from a private boat booked for us and the others on the tour/s. So extremely good company, no over crowding.
We had the pleasure and the company of two very intelligent, wise men of Banaras - guys who really know the city. Its flavors, the stories and the innate ability to hold your attention for over five to six hours at a time! Now that is really something!
Thank you Sudarshan and Anupam!
We had enough water, a decent snack and we also ended up with creating our own rangoli with rose petals and lighting diyas as our offering. With a meetha paan to round it off!
We also did the Kashi Vishwanath mandir special darshan the next evening with Anupam and had an excellent darshan.
So here's the thing - if you want a well thought out walking tour, if you want to delve into the city and its history, get in touch with Roobaroo. By the way, Anupam is also an excellent photographer and he has a photo tour as well.
Sudharshan and Anupam know all the great eating joints as well, so that is the additional input you can get from them. Thank you both so much for the meetha and saada paans!
Till we meet again - God Bless.
