Vikash is knowledgeable not only because this is his home but he studied Indian History. He is one of the most sought after guides in India and you will instantly know why. His laid back style and willingness to provide in-depth information about the aspects of Inda that interest you most, will put you at ease instantly. His flexibility to show you what you want to see rather than sticking to a set itinerary or only covering the highlights of a few things makes time with him quite enjoyable. Vikash has great communication skills, is very experienced in guiding groups and will make your time in India so much richer.

We spent the whole day in a tour with Vikash to guide us through Vanarasi. He is very knowlegdeable and very well informed with the history of the city and took us to the most relevant and remote places, that I would never found without him. He is also very attentive and genorous. I will never forget the delicious foggy dessert and chai tea which he invites us. When my friends come to India, I will definetely go on a tour with Vikash again.I will highly recommend him if you think to visit this magic city.

Varanasi is such an amazing city, steeped in culture and history, and Vikash can make your stay here a memorable one. As a Varanasi native, he has a great knowledge of the city, and can entertain you with lots of fascinating stories. I really enjoyed walking through all the narrow old streets, the ghats and taking a boat ride on his tour. I learnt so much along the way. He will also help you with any other issues that may come up, nothing is too much trouble for him! As a solo female traveller this was very reassuring. He is a warm, friendly and respectful person and a very professional guide.

Interesting tour of Varanasi topped off with an early morning boat ride on the Ganges. Vikash is very knowledgeable and will happily answer any questions but also leaves you alone to take in the sights and sounds - getting the balance completely right. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any visitor to Varanasi.

Vikash took us on an adventure trough Varanasi and that was amazing! He showed the most beautiful places and knew a lot to tell about them. When I’m in India again, I will definitely go on a tour with Vikash again!

Varanasi is so insanely beautiful. It's pretty hard not to get swept up in the crumbling majesty of it all. Vikash is an amazing guide, I took two tours with him, one of the ghats and temples by the Ganges, and another at Sarnath, where Buddha gave his first sermon. We walked through back alleys while he explained details and history that I would never have found on my own. He's so knowledgeable about Varanasi's history and culture. I've taken a bunch of tours across India and this was by far the most enriching one. Do it!

Vikash is an incredible guide.
Communication was perfection as well as our time together.
There are many things we would have missed had we gone wandering alone.
I recommend him 100%!
