We met Rahul by chance and we did not regret trusting him. We took the 3 day package. Thanks to him we discovered Varanasi even better than we expected. He explained his city with passion and took us to places we would never have been to if we were alone. We visited Varanasi like locals and we advise everyone who will pass by here to trust him because you will not regret it! Once again a big thank you to you Rahul Cristoforo as this experience will always be remembered!
