Excellent tour/walk through Varanasi. The tour guide Sudarshan Chakravarthi had a lot of information about Varanasi, it's heritage, myths and history. He explained the various aspects of the narrow lanes and also took us exclusive locations which no one would never get see.

This was my first time in Varanasi and I have been completely blown away with this beautiful and ancient city. But the cherry on top was the North walk with Sudarshan from Roobaroo walks. His knowledge and story telling ability made the walk interesting and...More
