I'd come to Varanasi, not as a tourist, but as an architecture student eager to explore the city, the ghats and its quaint streets. Serenity Routes was the perfect way to enjoy the narrow bylanes of Benaras, in a rickshaw. The Rickshawalla was extremely polite and took us to see certain places that don't usually feature on a tourist map. But it was precisely this offbeat nature of the ride, coordinated by Avinav, that made it so alluringly Benarasi. I'd be recommending this to everyone who visits Varanasi- by far the best way to get to know India's holy city!

Avinav took me and my friend to the innermost parts of the city (read Galiyan) which I think not many locals would have also visited. We ate Banarsi Breakfast along with wonderful sweets which are also local to the city. I do not think you will be able to see the true banaras without a local's help, thanks to Avinav who bridged that gap for us.

Really appreciate the enthu the team has for making promoting tourism in Varanasi. All the best and Thank You :)

had an incredible experience courtesy of Serenity Routes.Was able to capture the real BANARAS Experience.The deluxe rickshaw is one the best and affordable way to roam around in the city.The driver himself served as a travel guide and facilitated the tour.We went to typical banarasi places and had the typical banarasi food like dahi jalebi, chole kachori etc. ; things we never could have experienced if we traveled on our own. In a nutshell, an AMAZING experience.

My dad, girlfriend and I had the most incredible experience waking up to the sounds and sights of Varanasi on a Serenity Routes rickshaw. It was my girlfriends first visit to Varanasi and it provided a unique perspective of seeing humans, animals and the gods waking up to their respective rituals. The boat ride on the river provides a stunning view of the ghats and the devotees. The guides are knowledgeable and accommodating and can tailor the trip to your needs. Thank you for great memories.......Mohit & Laura

What an awesome experience! The deluxe rickshaw is the only way to travel around Varanasi and the guide was super knowledgable so we learnt a lot and had an amazing time!
