My name is Vinay Singh, I was born in Varanasi and have led tours here for nearly 10 years. My experience has made me the choice for tours for everyone from solo travelers to famous travel YouTubers and documentary crews. I offer an authentic experience of Varanasi with an extremely knowledgeable guide to lead the way. Each tour is individually tailored to your interests, so you get to see what is important to you and have a unique experience. You can try traveler friendly street food, take a private sunrise tour of the Ghats and ceremonies, wander through the winding back alleys and old city, see the Aghori Babas and temples, and experience how spirituality is so deeply woven into the lives of the people here. Living here my whole life has given me a deep knowledge of the city and the traditions, rituals and religions that it surrounds. During the tour I will pass on much of this to you so you can have a more meaningful experience of the city during your time here.

    We had a booked an early morning walking tour. The coordination with Vinay was smooth and he adjusted the timings to start the tour according to our convenience as we had also booked Pooja at Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Vinay agreed to include boat ride also in the tour. The highlight of the tour was Rahul our walking tour guide. Rahul ensured to tell us about Banaras, take to important places and also cover smaller nuances. He took us around to popular eatery places also. Rahul was professional in terms not taking to places to shop where otherwise guides force you to buy. He was also attentive to what we say and took routes which we were more interested in. Would recommend this tour for Rahul as a guide.

    Vinay's team, Mr.Rahul is incredibly knowledgeable person. He does really nice hospitality all day long when we were with him. We felt so comfortable and got so many thoughts during their tour program. Mostly, he is trustable person and most recommended tour guide in Varanasi, i am sure!

    Our guide Rahul took us to many interesting spots throughout Varanasi. We learned many things about the cremation process and life in one of India's most holy city. The boat ride was a very nice addition!

    Average, just like 3 stars are described as. This was quite okay, but nothing special. Walked a bit around the city center and took a short boattrip on Ganges. The guide got us some very nice seats at the ceremony in the evening. The boattrip was nice.

    We had Rahul as our guide, he's a Varanasi guy, who knows all the allies and shops. He took us through the Gats, explaining the rituals and traditions. We had great chai at a local shop and excellent Dosa from a street cart. He also took us to a local Doctor practicing the traditional natural oils treatments. Raul was on time and took care of our needs and asks. Highly recommended, a genuine tour.
