Varanasi Trip - Feb 2024

We had engaged Chandan as our tour guide in Varanasi and that was one of the best parts of our trip. Chandan is very Knowledgeable about the city of Varanasi and has good knowledge of the topography and that was very helpful to navigate the crowded city quickly. He is fluent in English and the local language, and helped us easily navigate the logistics of visiting different sites. He helped us plan the trip around Varanasi and maximize the use of time taking into consideration needs of senior members of our group. He is very knowledgeable about the culture , history and religious customs. He was very professional and accommodative. He is a fun and engaging guide. We especially loved the beautiful morning and evening Ganga aartis and the spectacular sunrise boat tour. He also helped us safely enjoy delicious street food and chai. We strongly recommend Chandan if you plan to visit Varanasi.
