Varanasi -- tour guide recommendation requested

I am planning to visit Varanasi in mid-February for 2 days and would like to have a guide (and a car) who can help me while there. I'd like to know what has been other TA members' experience in this regard and if anyone has any recommendation for a guide. Or, should I look for a travel agent who can handle the whole trip including airfares? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi !

I have used cars offered by Mr. Singh @ Varanasi. His contact Nos. are +91 93071 87070 & 94154 48010. Every time I made a trip to Varanasi, I was fortunate to get a new car. His rates are reasonable.

If you need, I shall speak to him to render whatever assistance you may require.

That is very nice way to promote yourself Avinash but TA traveler forum is not for self promoting. I think your post will be removed soon.
