I was not on my best health when I reached Varanasi , but the empathy, positivity , eagerness and flexibility with which my whole experience was handled has left me very impressed . My companion Satish ji was a great company and very knowledgeable about the wonderful city of Banaras. His being a foodie himself made the food sampling tour even more enjoyable . The owner of Experience Varanasi Kunal ji was also calling me periodically to ensure everything was ok . I plan to visit again soon to seek blessings again from Mahadev and also can’t wait to have the super addictive Tamatar Chaat and Bati Chokha .

We six planned a trip to Varanasi & surroundings. I contacted experiencevaranasi.com, whom I got through Google search.Came across Mr Kunal as contact person. He offered various options and we preferred a circuit trip Varanasi- Prayagraj-Ayodhya-Chitrakoot- Varanasi. Mr Kunal a suave young MBA from BHU personally guided us in Varanasi & ensured hassle-free Darshan twice among lot others.He arranged the circuit trip, provided a good Innova with a decent driver,arranged guides, Darshan in Ayodhya, Chitrakoot, Sangam bath and host others. He monitored comfort all along. He charged very less compared to service he had provided. All the members of the trip have returned home with unforgettable sweet memory of the trip in thus scorching summer, but not felt discomfort for being in AC environment & visit arranged in evening. This trip is one of my best among all the trip in India and foreign, all due to right travel guide. Lastly, impressed to see infrastructure development in UP, almost 700 KM we traveled through amazing road at above 80 KM speed.... I would be happy to take their assistance for Narnada tour next earliest opportunity...

Our trip to varanasi-saranath-prayaraj(4 days/3 nights): the highlight of our trip was Mr.Kunal Rakshit fron experience varanasi. he is a guide par-excellence. he became our very good friend from first day itself. he has vast knowledge of all the history of varanasi, Sarnath and is very fluent in English as well. Evening Boat ride and the Ganga Arati was out of the world experience. if we have to enjoy varanasi we have to "accept as it is" and enjoy the people,culture and customs. The best part of the tour was Mr. Kunal was always on time and accompanied us to each and every place. Morning Mangala Arati at Kashi Vishwanath temple was highly spiritual and soul filling. Kunal took us to street food- he know the best food available at best places. Sunrise boat ride in Ganga with lots of birds chirping and coming around you was mesmerizing. Thanks and best wishes to Kunal. we had a wonderful time . All the best and 5 stars to him

Kunal was an excellent guide. I went there with my mom and sisters. We were 5 of us. Experience varanasi has organized everything so perfectly for us. Right from the airport pick up and drop for various flights of ours to organising the darshan and aarthi, it was flawless. The car was exceptionally clean with a wonderful chauffer. It couldn't have been more comfortable and interactive if not for Kunal. He looks into each and everything to make your travel most memorable. The food tour to the most authentic places in town and the weavers village were the highlights of our trip. The boat ride in the ganga in the morning and evening was in a private boat. I am dancer who decided to have a photoshoot as I reached a day early. Mr. KUNAL has organized a photographer for the same at a very short notice. Likewise, we needed a wheel chair for my mom and there it was yet again at a very short notice. I thank Experience Varanasi for making our stay a wonderful one. He can be reached at --9415352685 Mr. Kunal Arunarekha Varanasy

We had wonderful 3 days with Kunal..he is a very helpful and humble person who knows his work...he made sure we had an amazing darshan...and all those little hidden gems in narrow alleys which certainly a tourist cannot find on his own...the point is yes..one can certainly plan varanasi on his own but exploring this ancient city with kunal gave us the feel of the place that we will cherish for a long time..our 17 and 9 years old children who were initially mad at us for planning a "boring trip" to varanasi in the winter vacations now admit that they indeed had a great time..thank u Kunal..
