Kunal has made our experience in Varanasi to match or even surpass our expectations. He is very welcoming and passionate about the City of Light. Kunal is extremely knowledgeable and capable of opening any door in this diverse and unified city - the real Soul of India.

We had a minimal layover in Varanasi and we made the best of every minute. Kunal handled everything detail! We were met outside of customs by a porter he arraigned who took us to Kunal where we were taken into the city. Kunal started right away giving us the history of the city and influence of religion. We saw the city by boat and experienced every aspect that we requested. Kunal made us feel safe and provided a fabulous tour! Delivering us back to the airport on time. Start to finish perfect tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ma'am, Thank you so much for writing a nice review. It was nice to meet you and your lovely kids. It is my duty to help my Guest in every possible way. I sent the porter for your assistance inside the airport so that it gets easy for you to go through the process & he could also help you with your luggage. Please visit again. Thanks & Regards, Kunal

Kunal was a wonderful guide! He is genuine and authentic in his enthusiasm and knowledge. He adjusted the tour as we needed and even went above and beyond to help us reach the airport! He even arranged a wheelchair for our flight, for my father who was back at the hotel, not feeling well. I like ToursByLocals, I have used ToursByLocals in Italy, and Thailand, and now India. Kunal is one of the best guides I've had! I do not give high reviews lightly, and he is well deserving!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cynthia, Thank you so much for writing a nice review. It was nice to meet you and your parents. It is my duty to help my Guest in every possible way. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks & Regards, Kunal
We had a beautiful experience with Kunal in Varanasi. He is an uncredibly knowledgeable guide, with a great sense of humor, a lot of stories about the city and the life of the inhabitants. A part of the musts of Varanasi, he took us to the paan market, flower markets and a lot of hidden places, what we could never find without him. Always on time, with water, tchaï, lhassi,. If you book a streetfood gour with him, be VERY hungry... very, very nice experiance, thank you again��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ma'am, Thank you so much for writing a nice review. It was nice to meet you. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks & Regards, Kunal

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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ma'am, Thank you so much for the recommendation. It was nice meeting you all and showing you my beautiful city. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks & Regards, Kunal.

I can't recommend Kunal enough. He was very easy to communicate with and adjusted the tour to meet our interests and time constraints. From transportation, to information, to delicious food, to making sure we had protection from the sun and rain, Kunal was on point. We will be back to see more of India with Kunal. He felt like an old friend after just spending 1 day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Adam for taking the time to submit such a positive review of our tour together. It really was a pleasure to take your group around. I hope you are enjoying your trip and look forward to seeing you again soon in the future.

Kunal is a very good tour guide, nice, friendly and smart. We had great time in Vanarasi. Remember to bring enough tips for everybody :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vivian, Thank you for your review. It was nice to meet you. Please bring your family next time when you come to Varanasi. Your kid's will love the boat ride and the food tour. Thanks & Regards, Kunal
Highly recommend Kunal! He was extremely professional and reliable, and always made our comfort and safety his priority. As first time visitors to India, Varanasi can be very hectic and chaotic, but Kunal managed everything in the best possible way. I was hesitant at first to book a tour with a guide that only had one review on ToursByLocals but do not let this make you have doubts about whether you should book this tour. You should. You won't regret it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nara, Thank you for the recommendation. I am very new with Tours By Locals. I am very thankful to Tours By Locals team that they enlisted me in their panel this year since September, 2018. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks & Regards, Kunal

We were fortunate to have Kanul as our tour guide in Varansi. Our experience would not have been the same without him. He took us through the alleyways of the old town, visit local businesses, temples, and other places. He is highly dedicated to his work as a tour guide. If you are planning to travel to Varansi, having Kunal as your tour guide in Varansi will transform your entire experience in Varansi into one full of memories! It is very important that you have a tour guide there. Kunal is the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Erin, Thank you so much for the recommendation. It was a wonderful experience meeting you and your parents and showing you my beautiful city. Have a nice trip ahead. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks & Regards, Kunal.
Kunal was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. I loved every site we went to and his knowledge and commentary was very helpful and informative, we learned so much! This tour started on our first day in India and he was very understanding and helpful at getting us slowly (is there slowly in Varanasi?) immersed into India. He had great suggestions for food and anything else we asked. Would definitely recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Megan, Thank you for the recommendation. Hope you have reached home by now. Being the city of Lord Shiva, Varanasi is always vibrant. Please visit again. Thanks & Regards, Kunal
I have used Tour By Locals in 4 countries and have to say Kunal was the best guide I have been with. Very knowledgeable and responsive to my needs and requests. He took me places where I didn't see any other tourists; only locals going around their normal routine. Really enjoyed the street food tour and time at local markets. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir, Thank you so much for the nice review. It was a wonderful experience meeting you and showing you my city. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks & Regards, Kunal
