Explore Varanasi like a true local in this morning tour where you get to experience some of the most unique things to do in the city! Your morning tour will begin at 5:30 AM with your guide picking you up from your hotel. From there on, move to the Assi ghat, to experience the magical sunrise. Flocked by hundreds of people from dawn, you will get to experience the Ganga aarti, a century-old ritual where priests use fire as an offering in the form of oil lamps to offer their prayers to the holy Ganga.

Following this, you will be in for a classical dance experience, where professional dancers show off their brilliant moves and enact a mythological story via dance. Move ahead and now proceed to the Akhada (a traditional place for training and practicing Indian martial arts). You will see how men engage in this wonderful art from the earliest hour of the day! And if you wish, you can try your hand at it too!

Move ahead to one of the most offbeat and unique experiences as your guide will take you to an ancient pond, Lolark Kund, a place to have mystical powers in its water as it is blessed by the sun-god himself! Visit this place and learn more about its mythological stories surrounding it!

End this unique tour on a high note with a scrumptious and filling breakfast of local bread and curry and some sweetened milk or tea to go with it. Oh, also did we tell you that you’ll be traveling on local transport of tuk-tuks? A truly local experience awaits you!
