What you'll do

Experience the city while walking with all your senses and soak up the colors, sounds, sights, aromas and taste. This city is vibrant, diverse and energetic, and the street food options are vast. Banaras offers you the best of history coupled with the best in cuisine as well. The streets have a wide range of eateries all offering delectably scrumptious food that is sure to suit every traveler’s appetite. I want to share this magic of Indian food, its exotic spices and fragrant flavours. You can indulge in some great street food items served in any of the major bazaars and streets of old Banaras. We will take you to some of the best street food joints scattered in the old city which are very popular with the locals & offer you a wide variety of food & beverages. We'll stop in an authentic Indian savoury shop, to sample tasty Pani Puri, Palak Chat and Chura Matar, e.t.c. Visit to the best Lassi shop and drink a glass of Lassi served in a clay pot. Visit an iconic eatery serving sizzling chicken Tikka’s. We'll visit the most popular Tea stall serving Bread Malai & Chai. You get the chance to sample sweet Gulaab Jamuns and delicious Kulfi. You'll also get the chance to see traditional Paan being made and enjoy a sample. It all comes with a lot of stories woven around the food in Varanasi.
