VaranasiWalks is the oldest experience oriented eco-friendly walking tour and boat journey collective in Varanasi. Since 2008 our Explorers have given an intimate look at the holy city of Varanasi and are able to show you places in the city that the average tourist could never find. Our walks cater to those who want to see the layered interiors of the city and avoid the static silk shopping game. The boatrides include short walks and detailed history along with immersed experiences! As a collective of residents of the city we are flexible and open to working with you to create a experience you will never forget. VaranasiWalks was started by Jai while he was running a successful Hindu Studies & Hindi Language university program and working in the Social Service sector. Jai has been giving walks in Varanasi since 2004.

A wonderful experience of morning walk in the lanes of Varanasi, where I had never went before. The mesmerising views of Ghat and the beautiful sites of temples are unforgettable.

We did the sunrise boat tour and the city walking tour. Both were amazing and an incredibly informative way to learn about this great city. Would definitely recommend both to anyone visiting Varanasi. The tour guides were so knowledgeable and very friendly.
