Your guide meets you at the hotel before sunrise, so you can witness the amazing spectacle which takes place on Varanasi's water front at the start of every day.

Ghats are the steps which lead down to the river from which pilgrims make their sin-cleansing dip in the holy river and on which bodies are cremated. A boat ride on the Ganges at dawn, when it is full of pilgrims, is an amazing experience, and your guide can explain to you the various rituals taking place.
Leaving the boat after passing the most important Ghats, you then continue on foot for a fascinating exploration of the narrow lanes of the Bengali Tola area of Varanasi, one of the oldest continuously inhabited places on earth, passing countless small temples, shrines, and traditional shops. Your guide will provide a unique insight into this most fascinating of cities, which would otherwise be incomprehensible to the outsider. This evening, you will witness the thousand-year-old Aarti Ceremony during which worshippers pray near the water by the light of candles and lanterns.
