About
Kashi-the word means ‘Concentration of cosmic light’ and it’s the oldest name of Varanasi - the most fascinating city in the world. My name is Rajeev Rastogi, I was born and raised in Varanasi. My highest knowledge about Varanasi’ history, geography, society, culture, tradition, everyday life is a value added to make unforgettable your experience in this land. I’m a tour guide since last 2006 and I deeply believe that this job is not just telling visitor about monuments or destination, but it’s a vocation, the reason of my life to create a cultural bridge between people from all the world and my loved India: I used to help visitors to discover the real soul of this land, often breaking down prejudices to see the magic mystical power of the city and its people. Me and my collaborators are able to make any tailor made trip in and around Varanasi, satisfying each our customer’s desire. So, if you are planning for a day tours in and around Varanasi- then please feel free to write us.

What a divine experience for our group of seven family members from Africa & USA.

Rajeev & Rohit organized an itinerary that showcased the most amazing history of Kashi and Vishwanath temple over our 3 day stay in Varanasi. It was meticulously planned and they were always punctual and there with us throughout the day.

We had gone for the final funeral rites and Asthi Visarjan for my late father. The ceremony was set against the background of an early morning sunrise from a boat with a priest accompanied by the soft tunes of a flute player. The morning and evening Aartis on the Ghats were phenomenal! So very professionally organized!

We would highly recommend Rajiv & Rohit for organizing any guided tours in the region.

Thank you both for giving us a most enjoyable and memorable experience. 🙏🏻

It has been my dream to visit Kasi one day. My son organised this trip for me. I was given great care, ensured Darshana at temples were good and memorable, gave experience of walking down the streets, and the Ganges prayers with boat ride was a bliss I will always carry with me. Every need was taken care of - thanks to Rajeev and his team! He was never late, good knowledge on history, prompt, contactable and respectful at all times

Rajeev ji is the best guide one could ask for exploring Kashi. He is very meticulous with his planning and is very knowledgable with respect to the culture and history of the place. He made our visit to kashi Vishwanath temple entirely hassle free and the Ganga aarti, an unforgettable experience. He is very respectful while communicating and takes utmost care of the client expectations. Please reach out to him on 9452206434 for making your Varanasi tour worthwhile. Look no further.

I booked a 3 days 4 nights trip with Mr.Rajeev for my senior citizen parents and their friends (another elderly couple) who live in Ghaziabad, while I live in London.

Rajeev ji was so responsive right from the start, it made it very easy for me to communicate what I am looking for and what are the physical restrictions. Mr. Rajeev's communication on WhatsApp was very clear and transparent.
He took care of their hotels, airport pick ups and complete 3 day itinerary.

While they arrived, he ensured that the tours are suitable to their needs, walking capacities. He ensured that they are comfortable and enjoying Kashi. My parents were extremely satisfied and returned very happy with the trip and Mr. Rajeev.

The way he personally takes care of each of his tourist makes his service very unique. If you want a personalised trip, look no further, Mr.Rajeev can definitely cater to it.

We had an amazing time in Varanasi with the help of Rajeev Rastogi of Kashi Journeys
Rajeev came up with an itinerary accounting for our interests and wishes. He was prompt and punctual. He had lots of stories to share that provided context of the religious significance of the place and its history. The morning boat ride was beautiful and we took so many pictures. He also pointed us to interesting eating places and shopping.
Highly recommend Kashi travels.

Our Parents wanted to visit Kashi, so we were looking for a local guide who would guide us through this journey very comfortably with parents.
And we found Rajeev, the best decision we took for this trip. He planned the trip very well. The Ganga Arti experience was divine, none of us expected that.
Each Darshan was very conveniently done with Rajeev's help. He very well considers the purpose of visit of each individual. He really knows those hidden temples, street and you name it. He is going to be our go to guide for another trips on our list in nearby cities.

Thanks Rajeev for being so wonderful!

Thank you Rajeev Rastogi for the wonderfully organised and executed trip of Varanasi and Sarnath. I had read many reviews online and had finally selected Kashi Journeys and I can confidently say that it was the best decision I took. My sister and I who took this three-day trip are senior citizens with the usual aches and pains. With my many food restrictions due to allergies was apprehensive but Rajeev was so considerate and helpful and actually treated us like family and looked after us going beyond his line of work. Flight delays and diversions caused us a great deal of trouble, with Indigo dropping me off alone at Lucknow in the middle of the night. One phone call by me at that unearthly hour and Rajeev was up and ready to help. A visit to the Ganga Aarti was the highlight. I think we had the best seats organised by Rajeev. We also saw the Ganga aarti from the boat on the second day but trust me it is not as good as seeing it from the shore (on the steps). Rajeev knew exactly when to visit the temples to avoid the rush and also get the best darshan. He was so punctual and squeezed in so much in the two and half days. The stories and history of places that he told us made the visits to the places very interesting. We got the real feel of the Banaras ki galiya and the famous chaats. For anyone planning to visit Varanasi, my advice would be don't think twice. Just call Rajeev and book your trip and you will not regret it. Happy tripping. Thank you Rajeev from my sister and me.
