Kunal was knowledgeable and extremely flexible. He customized our schedule to include just the things we were most interested in seeing and doing.
When one of us was feeling ill - he offered to find us help and even made arrangements to have a chair available that he carried with us during longer walks!
His expertise and enthusiasm made the tour interesting, but his concern and kindness is something we will always remember.

My son and I travelled to Varanasi with high hopes for the Holy City. From the moment we met Kunal we began to understand why this city is so special. As well as being one of the most informative and well researched guides I have met, his in-depth knowledge as a local who has lived in Varanasi all his life, added to the day and a half we spent with him.
Kunal went way above and beyond the tour itinerary. He would make little detours along the way to show us points of interest or in response to questions we had.
Our experience with Kunal didn't end at the completion of our Varanasi Experience, he kept in contact with us for the next week and assisted us navigating the train system from Delhi to Agra and organised guides and contacts at the Taj to make our experience a memorable one. For these additional services he requested NO Payment just wanted to ensure we had positive experiences right across India.
I highly recommend Kunal and the services of "Experience Varanasi" for ALL travellers. Kunal knows all the best places to eat and see...I felt confident that he had our best interests at heart and will go above and beyond to make your Varanasi visit memorable. THANK YOU KUNAL!

The guide Mr. Kunal Rakshit has personally looked after us. We are REKHA 75 years age & Anil 82 years age.We were skeptical before our visit to Varanasi whether we will be able to attend early morning Ganga Aarti, Kashi
vishweshwar , Sankat mochan & Durga temples but Mr . Kunal helped us visiting all these climbing, going down steps & walking distances. He has also explained the historical importance of all these monuments particularly BHU & the development of Kashi that took thousands of years. Also he showed us on Varanasi map the future developments planned.We were surprised with his knowledge of different foods like Kachori, Mallaiyo & other sweets which we throughly enjoyed. He took us the weavers market for us to see the artisans skills. We enjoyed seeing Gaga Aarti in the evening from our cruise. Our life time desire to visit KASHI was possible because of Mr. Kunal Rakshit of experience Varanasi Pvt. Guided tours. The service given was excellent with smile & personal care.

Experience Varanasi has been our best find for a fantastic curated experience of Varanasi. Kunal keeps every requirement in mind and carefully plans schedules & movements within a very complex city of Benaras. The city as we now know can be overwhelming, but thanks to Kunal of Experience Varanasi I've made my 2nd trip within the year and this time with my ageing parents. He looked into every smallest detail to make it the most memorable trip for them as well !

Mr Kunal was insensitive to the Group’s needs inspite of the same being informed to him before engaging him. He made our group of 11 ladies walk through narrow and crowded bylanes, for which we had to face displeasure from the locals and health issues too. And when 6 ladies, out of 11 fell sick, instead of being compassionate, he blamed it on our stress, which actually happened because of him.

Mr Kunal was not good. He was insensitive to the group’s needs which was informed to him before hand. He made us walk through the narrow by lanes inspire of knowing our health issues, which lead to health issues. Very much unhappy.

We, 3 women friends, visited Varanasi in November for Dev Deepawali for which people plan 6 months in advance. Experience Varanasi came highly recommended from a friend. Despite reaching out to Kunal from Experience Varanasi at almost the last minute, Kunal arranged everything for us very quickly. Being tech savvy and excellent with English, it was absolutely easy and hassle free to firm up the itinerary on whatsapp and emails. Right from arranging a taxi to te please visits to arranging a boat for Dev Deepawali, everything was taken care of by Kunal.

We are specifically impressed with the professionalism exhibited by Kunal and team in everything. We got the driver and taxi details well in advance of our flight to Varanasi. The driver was waiting for us and we had a hassle free arrival at Varanasi. The car was very clean and in great condition. Kunal, himself, was with us for the next 4 days. Extremely knowledgable, warm, empathetic and very passionate about giving us the local experience. He knows the ins and outs of the city and he took us (literally dragged us at times) through meandering alleys and gulleys to give us the true taste of the flavours of Varanasi. We also needed a lot of flexibility with the itinerary as we had some of our own arrangements and he was extremely flexibile, accompanied us and was patient with us. He was also sensitive to our requirements, like wanting breaks, arranging for riskshaws when we were tired, bottled water, clean washrooms etc. All the arrangements made by him for us, taxis, temple visits, Sarnath trip, driver, boats etc were all extremely good and of course, we throughly enjoyed Kunal's company. Meticulous and with an eye for detail, he went out of his way to ensure that we had a great experience and that too comfortably. Kept motivating us to explore more than what we would have otherwise done and totally engaging with us. After a point, he felt more like our 4th travel companion than a guide.

A special mention to the taxi driver, Nandakishore, who was extremely polite with a pleasing demenour and personality. Never expressed any displeasure even when he had to accomodate our last minute changes to the itinerary. Traffic in Varanasi is crazy and one would need a calm and good driver to deal with it and Nandakishore did a wonderful job.

In a country where punctuality is very rare, Kunal and his team were always on time, in fact before time waiting for us, be it 5 am or 11 pm and we went through our itinerary like clockwork. This was something that specifically stood out for me and is totally appreciated.

Visiting one of the oldest cities in India, Varanasi , that lives and breathes on its own and has its own energy requires a guide like Kunal who can match that energy without missing a beat.

We came back from Varanasi, soul satisfied with the magical experience . A
huge credit for this goes to Experience Varanasi and specifically Kunal. Having travelled the world, to have experienced such professionalism and world class arrangements in my own country fills me with pride. Very happy to reccomend them to everyone.
