A Recent Review of this tour

We highly recommend Kunal! Our daughter who was with had been to Varanasi before, said, "Kunal showed me the authentic Varanasi that I had hoped to see the last time I was here. I really felt like I got to know the soul of the city through the stories he told us and the people he introduced us to. Kunal showed me a Varanasi that I hadn't seen before. Through his tour I got to know a city full of people who call it home. Out of all of the guides I had during the many months in India, Kunal was the best!
