Highly recommended!
“This tour package was perfect for our visit to Varanasi. It was the perfect amount of time to see a lot of the amazing sites, experience the culture of Varanasi, and to really get a feel for the spirituality of the city. We were exposed to all of the important cultural highlights. As well as this, he quickly learnt and understood what our specific group liked and would want to do, tailoring this to suit us (such as including additional time for shopping for local weavers).
I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who are travelling to this city. You always know exactly what you are doing and when, and it is really well tailored to your individual group interests and needs.”
