We did 2 boattrips with China. He is a great guy and guide. Wonderful experience with sunrise and sunset. We also did a walking tour with an external guide (guess their own guides were busy ); nothing to write home about; he cared more about getting us into his silk factory than the tour itself. The tours are donation based,... More

It was a dream come true to have two weeks in Varanasi. Time to ease into the bosom of a holy city. Being with mother ganga, the mighty Ganges River, and the passing through fire of one life to another. Varanasi has attitude, incomparable and enchanting. The pace of life, frenetic, matched by the slow glide of a Ganges boat... More

This is a very nice experience to come and volunteer for hours. That could be the occasion to revise your mathematics tables or propose a new activity ! I really recommend everyone to try.
