Arriving in a complex and fascinating city like Varanasi may not be easy or you can miss some small and great wonders. Streetwise Varanasi Tour (Rhaul) welcomed us with great sympathy and generosity and showed us unexpected corners of this wonderful city. He introduced us to the most important streets and temples of old Varanasi and showed us some right attitudes to keep in the holiest places in the city. They have been very helpful and enjoyable hours. Highly recommended! It was so amazing and totally unexpected but delightful. It will not be forgotten and it will always be with me forever.
