Excellent service very knowledgeable guide

Guide was very helpful and flexible although I have arrived late. The sunrise boat trip was for me the highlight. The service was excellent. Without a Guide I would not have received the insight and information about the things I saw. I would only recommend the tour everyone. Please let the guide know if you are more interested in the morning ritual or the sunrise

Great tour! Rajat was professional, informative, accommodating, and friendly. Each part of the tour was worth it, and we enjoyed the one-of-a-kind beauty of Varanasi. Recommend for travelers who are up for a unique adventure!

A very fine sunrise boat tour and excellent guiding by 5-star guide Kasif, by car, boat and walk at the Ghats (riverfronts). Kasif told us everything of interest and made the trip memorable. Highly recommended!

We were picked up on time in the morning, had his great guide and driver. would book excursions again at any time with get your guide. Lunch and continuing into the evening were simply great.

My guide, Rajat from Varanasi Excursions was very friendly and full of information. He answered all of my questions patiently! The boat trip and walking were a great way to see the city.
