I did two experiences with Roobaroo Walks during my weekend visit to Varanasi, and the experience was excellent from start to finish!

They helped me build an itinerary of must -do experiences, and the guide, Anupam, shared stories of the city — his passion for his home shines through! Winding through the narrow lanes near the ghats, he led us through doorways to temples and heritage homes that there’s no way I would have found or experienced otherwise. The evening aarthi from a boat on the Ganges River was a particular highlight.

Really enjoyed the whole experience and learning about the history and present life in this beautiful city. I will certainly be looking for more opportunities to do Roobaroo Walks tours in other cities in India as I travel!

Hey Supriya, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. Nothing can be more rewarding than this. Also, I can't thank enough to Dhruv for connecting us. Walking with you I never felt when the time passed. The variety of topics we discussed while walking were so enlightening. I am so happy that my understanding of the city helped you connect well to the city. Hope our paths cross soon again and we sit again for another kulhad of lassi, till then keep traveling :)

Rubaroo was an accidental find, but turned out to be an excellent experience. Aayush and Anupam have been extremely helpful and also their passion for Kaashi was coming through clearly.

Even though I picked the sunrise boat tour and south walk, I did only the boat tour due to my spouse's indisposition.

Sourabh, who is our guide was an excellent story teller and communicator. We had a very fulfilling boat tour with lot of history, mythology and anecdotes thrown in.

I would recommend Rubaroo to anyone seriously interested in the history of Kashi and an experiential tours and storytelling.

This is not the first time we choose Roobaroo, they are our standard team with whom we always wish to explore the city. The best part is they are kind. To be in a city like Varanasi which is the cradle of Sanātana Dharma, one's mere existence there should bring pride, let alone creating a job on these lines. With all that knowledge about mankind and civilization, the team is as humble and kind as any true learned is. They know their job well and they have their heart in their work. I am not taking the list of eateries and exotic shopping venues we were taken to, that would consume a whole new column :).

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.

Myself, my sister Arundhati and her husband Gowri Sankar took the heritage walk of Varanasi with Ms.Mudita Bapat of Roobaroo Walks on Dec.21, 2019. We all are senior citizens. Mudita took us on a 4 and half hour walking tour of Varanasi lanes and the ghat side. Mudita is an excellent tour guide and story teller. She is proficient in English and Hindi, is a store house of Varanasi History. She very expertly guided us through the crowded lanes of Benaras telling very interesting facts about the places we were walking through. She very well adjusted to our age and never forced the pace of walk. In the time she spent with us we learn't lot about Varanasi, thanks to Mudita.
She is a delightful person, with good sense of humor, very courteous and well educated person. Our vehicle was parked at some distance from where the tour started, she walked with us to the car parking area and waited till we boarded the car and then signed off. We will strongly recommend her to all our friends and relations visiting Varanasi.

Roobaroo Walks is an excellent tour providers. During our stay at Varanasi the internet facility was blocked for couple of days and we had difficulty in paying the fees. They readily agreed to give us time till we returned home and make the payment. Hats off to them. We did not visit their office nor met personally any one in Rooobaroo Office. All communication was over the phone only.

I had one of the most memorable trips of my life thanks to Anupam and Saurabh at Roobaroo. They had the most well thought through trails to explore the city, filled with anecdotes and stories about Banaras and they very quickly became a part of my family. I got see the city through a local’s eyes and experienced the absolute abundance of warmth, kindness and generosity of Banarasi people. They were extremely knowledgeable, well researched yet very warm and friendly - when they understood I was visiting for my birthday they made sure to celebrate it in unique Banarasi style. I will forever be grateful to Roobaroo walks for curating one of the most memorable trips of my life and making me feel like I belong to this city. Thank you

We had travelled to Varanasi in September beginning on a short visit. Not satisfied with the usual temple trail, we wanted to try out something different and called up Anupam. I must say, this was probably the best decision I had taken in a long time.
We stayed in Benares for three days and did all three walks : South walk combined with food and boat tour , next day North walk combined with boat tour.
I can't emphasize how great an experience we had with Anupam and Saurabh.
Anupam took us through the narrow lanes and introduced us to the local way of living. Be it the idyllic pan shop, the saree shopping, an amazing "thandai" shop, local cuisine or a hidden-old world- temple.
Each destination seemed like an adventure in itself and experiences I would carry with myself for a long time.
Saurabh is a local celebrity, and we went to Tulsi's Ashram, an Akhara and had sumptuous breakfast. We also had long conversations with both of them on culture, religion, society and ended up buying books recommended.
They often say that you carry and leave a piece of your heart to the places you travel.
With Robaroo walks I was able to experience Benares in its truly authentic and raw form . Listening to stories from past and present while at the same time, experiencing the inner city with all the sensory experiences available was a joy and delight. I would highly highly recommend investing in these experiences. I am planning to do city hopping to try out Roobaroo walks in other cities too. :)

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.

Attended 2 walks from Roobaroo Walks. Well co-ordinated by Anupam, headed by Saurabh.

Visited places that were an absolute trance in the small bustling lanes or Benaras. Revisited history and tales debating on whether they were myths or facts.

In the narrow busy lanes of Thateri Galli, we found tranquility in the house of poet and the Father of Modern Hindi, Bhartendu Harishchandra.

The authentic chaat, underground toast would not have been possible to explore on our own.

A mesmerizing experience, totally incomplete without them.
