An amazing experience.I learned so much from my guide, Krishan, who was able to communicate his passion to me. He was very kind, patient and friendly. He did not rush me so I could take pictures when we were walking around. His English was very good so it was easy for me to understand him. I asked him a lot of questions about life in Varanasi and he was able to talk about real Indian life as he is experiencing it on a daily basis. I wish I had had more time to book other excursions with him.
