The airport to come into is Varanasi International (AKA Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport).
The nearest train station is Varanasi Junction but Moghul Sarai is also easily accessible with some better trains coming through there.
A day by day schedule has not been fixed because to get the most out of the trip one has to be able to accommodate the very last minute events that show themselves in Varanasi.
I am happy to assist you with this and any further travel plans you may have within the country.
