We booked this food tour after having a bad experience with a registered tour company. We found Avinash to be extremely warm and generous with his time and knowledge of Varanasi street food. He took us to many places and fed us many delicious items - we eventually couldn’t eat any more and had to ask to cut the tour short! Avinash then took us to an observatory and subsequently organised a boat ride down the Ganges for us; a wonderful way to end the evening. If you’re after a genuine local street food experience, this tour is the one to book.
