About Kashi Journeys
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.

Overview
If one want to feel the soul of Varanasi and River Ganga, one has to take a boat trip to see the horizon.. The city is built on the western curve of the holy Ganga River. Witness the breathtaking sunrise on the the horizon as it radiates its light among-st the colorful buildings, ashrams, and city escape along the River Ganga. As the sun rises in Varanasi, you will be experiencing 1 of the 5 rituals performed for the worship of the sacred Ganges River called the Ganga Aarti. See groups of young Brahmins and sadhus, draped in saffron robes waving incense sticks or holding large flaming lamps while exerting intricate and extravagant movements and emitting devotional chants and hymns. After encountering the sacred performance, enjoy a morning boat ride around the Ghats of the city and marvel at its mesmerizing views. Cap off your spiritual adventure with a casual stroll along the various Ghats of Varanasi to complete your visit to India’s most divine city..

Rajeev is an excellent human being and his love for the city reflects every time we went around the streets of Kashi and also while taking the boat rides either in the morning or evening. We would highly recommend him for your tours in Kashi.

Because we hired a trustworthy guide we were saved a couple of times. Varanasi has a lot of people waiting to scam you, but that doesn't mean all of them are like that. You just have to be careful, whenever you are offered something don't think that its free. If your Cautious enough, the trip can be very pleasant.

We visited Kashi in Feb 2020 with my elderly parents. This trip was made memorable by Rajeev from Kashi Journeys. My father has limited mobility and without Rajeeev's it would have been nearly impossible to cover the things we could do in 2 days. Rajeev has extremely fast response rate both on email and on whatsapp even before the trip begins for understanding key sites you want to see during the trip. We learnt that Rajeev grew up close to a ghat in Varanasi and is a local in truest sense. He is very well connected to locals which helps you navigate smoothly across different sites. He has a unique pulse on the city - which place to visit, when and for how long. He can take you to hidden alleys close to ghats to show you the hidden spiritual ashrams and meditation centers, as well as hidden local eatery jems. He arranged for private sunrise and sunset boat tours and the whole thing was meticulously managed. We also enjoyed Ganga Aarti and the trip to the Vishwanath temple was unforgettable. We also got car and driver from his tour agency and all drivers were professional, on time and courteous. All in all - if you are in Kashi, do yourself a favor and get his services. He is sincere, honest and trustworthy. Above all - he truly cares for his clients needs and goes an extra mile every single time.
