This Varanasi Allahabad Tour begins with your arrival at Varanasi, the holy city on the banks of the river Ganges and one of the Oldest Living Cities of India.
Our representative will meet you on arrival at the Varanasi Airport and escort you to the pre-booked hotel for a traditional welcome ceremony and check-in formalities. Rest for a while and post lunch, embark on a short tour of the most famous Varanasi temples. The tour concludes with a drop back at the hotel, but not before you have experienced one of the most magical sights of Varanasi - the Ganga Aarti experience.
To ensure you have the best view possible, we will visit the aarti venue on a boat. It is enlivening indeed to see priests hoisting up multi-tiered lamps and rotating them in unison, in tune with their chants. Later, the river comes alive with a hundred lamps, as devotees set afloat small earthen lamps on floating leaves down the Ganges.Overnight in Varanasi
