On an extraordinary 2-night tour of Varanasi, discover the spiritual pilgrimage sites along the Ghats of this fascinating city and the neighboring Sarnath. Fly from New Delhi and join your guide for a tour by water and land, including airport arrival and departure transfers. Enjoy two nights' accommodation at a hotel in Varanasi with breakfast.


ItineraryDay 1: New Dehli—VaranasiMeet your driver at your New Delhi hotel and relax in the comfort of a private airport transfer for your flight to Varanasi. A representative will meet you upon arrival for the ride to your Varanasi hotel.
Before heading out on a tour of the Ghats meet your guide for a tour briefing about the events occurring on the days ahead. Begin your evening tour of this spiritual city with a visit to the Ghats. This series of stone steps leads to the holy river where you’ll find Hindu and Jain worshipers mediating and teaching along the shores of the Ganges River.
Your guide will share stories about Lord Shiva, who chose Varanasi as his home as you watch people from across the country gather to bathe in the waters of the Ganges. Hindus consider this to be the most holy of experiences. Gain a deeper understanding of the belief that those cremated on the sacred steps receive salvation after their death. 
Overnight Rivitas Hotel in Varanasi
Day 2: Varanasi (B)Set sail on the Ganges for an early morning boat ride and watch as hundreds of pilgrims wade out into the holy waters as they have since ancient times. Listen to prayers and chants as your guide shares stories and history while the sun rises over head.
Next, wander through the kinetic energy of Varanasi’s old city streets. Narrow back alleys and single-file passes pass by lively bazaars, food stalls and shrines. Visit the area surrounding the stunning gold-covered temple where Kashi Vishwanath, the patron deity of Varanasi, resides. The temple is only accessible to Hindus, but you’ll enjoy the vibrant city life that surrounds this holy destination.
Return to your hotel for breakfast before heading out on a guided tour of Sarnath, which is about 6 miles (10 km) outside Varanasi. See the site where Buddha preached his first sermon in Deer Park and see some of the pilgrims who make their way to this ancient monument to pay their respects each year. 
Follow your guide to Dhamek Stupa, where a new monastery was built by the Buddhist Maha Bodhi Society on the same location where a once splendid ancient structure stood. Wander the galleries of the archaeological museum where you’ll see the Sarnath pillar represented in India’s national emblem. Your guide will share information about the first Buddhist monks who made their way here in the 3rd century BC.
Enjoy an evening cruising by boat along the shores of Varanasi as you watch the spectacular aarti ceremony unfold before your eyes. Recognized as one of the most essential rituals of the Hindu faith, you’ll see flaming oil lamps wave over the Ganges as pilgrims chant over the ringing of temple bells. 
Overnight: Rivitas Hotel in Varanasi
Day 3: Varanasi—New Delhi (B)Relax over breakfast at your Varanasi hotel and explore the city on your own and at your leisure.
