Binit is a trustworthy and dependable guide. My husband and I found the city physically difficult as well as culturally challenging. Binit helped us move around easily and gave us access to experiences we would have found impossible on our own. He knows the city and loves it, and he loves to share and explain it. He speaks English and understands American language. His drive Vishal got us where we were going even when a downed tree snarled traffic for miles. Highly recommended.
Two days tour. Even though Binit came across prepared, we were not really satisfied with his approach. He made multiple attempts to shorten the duration of the two days by suggesting to make long lunch breaks, finish earlier than agreed, etc. It was also rather bothering that he kept looking at his watch during the whole two days, which is just simply not nice and also a sign of "I have enough of this" mentality, often he seemed impatient. As we learned later, the 330 USD was a rip off, do not recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arian , Thank you for your feedback! ! I didn't mean to shorten the tour and I exactly followed as per the itinerary. Regarding the long lunch break because from 12 to 2:30 pm all the temples are closed in Varanasi and no activities take place during that period of time. Looking at watch doesn't mean that I was not with you. And I was always on time. Regards, Binit

An amazing tour made better by Binit our knowledgeable tour guide. He told us about the cultural, religious, and social environment concerning Hindus and the Ganges. Cremation grounds and the fire ceremony with chanting monks will be forever remembered. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys for your review .

Binit showed us the real Varanasi and went to great efforts to keep us away from the overly touristic elements. He shared his knowledge of a number of different forms of Hinduism with us. Polite, knowledgable and always on time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gary for the review. You guys were awesome and I am happy to hear that you had great time in Varanasi. Thanks and wish you all the best! ! Regards, Binit
Binit has the potential of being a good guide. Speaks fluently with passion. Thought to get more info. from him (presented as a scholar, x2 more expansive than others). 1. Price does not meet the expectations - brings disappointment . Indeed visits the places promised (wrestling ground, vedic school etc.) however just pass by the buildings, participate in no activity, gives no deep explanation. Improve - charge less, explain more, co-ordinate institutes visited so people could experience more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ori for you for your valuable comments and suggestions. I will try to improve my skills. I upgraded you in bigger car in same price for you to feel comfortable. before booking the tour Itinerary was given to you and you were not interested in any activity so you couldn't take a part . Thank you once again for your review. Regards, Binit
Great person. Very professional and helpful. Arranged for pickup from airport. His driver was also great, smooth driving. He took great effort to make sure we had a good comfortable tour. Arranged the tour according to our pace. If you would like to have a stress free visit to Varanasi with a local person guidance, then Mr Binit it is. Highly recommended. :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sri Lata Ji, Thank you for your review. You were also a nice guest for me as well. It was nice meeting your family. Varanasi is really a place to discover its culture and history. Thanks and regards, Binit
