      Off the beaten path in Varanasi
      Manish is an excellent tour guide. We saw many off the beaten path sites which was exactly what we asked for. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. We would have rated him 5 stars except that he consistently would race ahead of us despite asking him to keep an eye on where we were.

      Manish, a very professional and likeable guide who can tell you all the special features about Varanasi
      Manish is very friendly and likeable young guide who is happy to answer all your questions about Varanasi and its culture. He organized great places for us for the every evening ceremony at Dashashwamedh Ghat. During our tour he fell on one of the numerous stairs that lead down to the Ganges. The first impression was that he hadn't broken anything. He continued the sightseeing tour professionally, probably in pain. Thank you for that. We would book him again at any time and can only recommend him to everyone.A very friendly and likeable young man who will be happy to answer all your questions about Varanasi and its culture.

      Awesome!
      Had the best tour ever with Manish! He's so friendly, it felt like going on a tour with a friend instead of a tourguide! He made a lot of effort to give me a very awesome experience! Thank you so much, Manish! Highly recommend it to go on a tour with him!

      Very good experience
      Our guide was friendly and good speaker of english. He took us to different parts of Varanasi and provided with a lot of useful information about the history, traditions, gods etc. This tour is a good way to start your trip in Varanasi. Totally recommend it.

      Good whatsapp conversation
      Thank you Manish for the arrangement! I am from Hong Kong, Whatsapp conversation is smooth the day before the tour. Even I came across flight delay, Manish also patiently asked me for update and kept in touch. The tour is an 2 hours easy walk and visit the must-see spots of varanasi. As you dont spend long in varanasi, with a local guide, you can quickly understand the local lifes and ask for good food recommendations. Worth spent! I was only spent 1 night, but its bit rush and shall spend 2 nights instead. They have different tours, this walking tour is first priority for quick glance. If you love to learn more indepth on the history, other tours should be entertained.

      A day out of Varanasi
      This was a great day led by my guide Manish. We visited three different villages and lots of roadside places in between. It was a seamless day with great conversation. The villages were great.. welcoming people and only to happy to talk and show you things. Never was there any pressure to buy or give. Best memory..being invited into a very old home by a villager. I feel I gained a better understanding of people through this day. I would thoroughly recommend it.

      Fraud by the tour operator recommended by TripAdvisor
      The tour operator never turned up at the appointed time, never informed anything and also no phone number to contact if office was closed on a Sunday. Looks like a fraud to me. Don't take this tour.

      Great guide and food 💙
      We had the 2 hours food tour, our guide Manish was brilliant. A really nice guy that explained the dishes to us and the history of each establishment. The food we had was delicious. Would highly recommend doing this tour

      Great walking and street food tours
      I had 2 tours in the same day with Manish, the walking tour and the street food. Both tours were excellent, Manish has a very good knowledge of the city and culture and showed me some places to eat delicious street food in a safe way. Very good

      Tour with Manish 🛶
      The tour with Manish was very interesting and was full of information that we did not know and helped us understand the importance of Varanasi. Our guide was very kind to wait for us since we arrived late, and he also took some beautiful photos of us! He was also very easy going and easy to understand! if we would have to recommend something for improvement would be to offer the opportunity to see the ceremony from the boat or maybe to watch it in the company of the guide so he can explain it. But overall it was an excellent experience! thanks Manish for the tour!!

      Nice tour
      Nice informative guided walking tour of Varanasi. City is very crowded and noisy which makes it difficult to hear the guide, however Abhi did his best.

    Manish ia a great guide. It is obligatory that you come to this tour hungry. We ate a lot and everything was great. He gives great advice about itinerary and can show you other interesting places not just food stalls.

    We had a fantastic food tour with Anant! He has an infectious smile and an it's obvious he loves showing people his city! We tried tea, lassi, dhosa, jalebi, gulab jamun, among other things. Anything we saw that looking good or interesting he was able to explain and help us try it safely and with good quality! It gave us the confidence to be able to buy street food on our own the next few days! The only problem was meeting up in the beginning. We ended up waiting an hour at the meeting spot before connecting with the guide. Luckily the company has WhatsApp and was responsive. It was worth waiting for. We would definitely recommend this tour!

    Good variety of food with excellent recommendations! Manish was an excellent tour guide who shared history of the food stops we went to and had fun stories! While I think there could have been a couple additional food stops to explore as part of the tour given the price, I still had a great time! Thanks for an excellent foodie experience!

    Also, appreciate the tour operator being flexible with time changes (I had to reschedule some other activities because of a flight cancellation - the tour operator was able to move this tour around!)

    Thanks Manish for a great food tour that left us stuffed and happy! We really enjoyed all 6 stops on the tour with a good variation of different flavors and dishes. Manish explained a bit about each stop and otherwise was happy to answer all of our many questions about the food and India. The walk itself was not too long so it is easy for anyone to go along. All the best!

    Manish is a fantastic guide, great English, lovely person and very knowledgeable. Would recommend this food tour even if you're experienced with Indian food as Banaras has special history. The tour is nicely paced, not too much, not too little. Highlights: Kashi Chat Bandar, incredible Thandai, actually, everything was brilliant.

    Booked the tour earlier that morning for a midday start . Got a call when we were on our way to the meet point via rickshaw to say there were no guides available so they couldn’t do the tour . They offered a tour later that day but as we were leaving Varanasi that afternoon this wasn’t suitable . Refund promised but has still not arrived 6 days later

    We did this tour with Manish. Manish was very knowledgeable about the area and the food and was very interesting to listen to. The food we tried was very tasty. We tried 7 different street foods and we were so full after we couldn't even finish them all. The food was incredible and we really enjoyed walking around the streets with Manish. A great tour to do while in varanasi. We would really recommend it.

    This was a nice way to spend an evening. We ate many different street foods and sweet food too. Manish is very knowledgable about Varanasi and he very generously helped us out on more endeavours after the food tour too. Varanasi locals are very giving and kind in general. :)

    Great tour, Manish very friendly and knowledgeable. Hit a bunch of famous and old establishments, all good and drink was delicious. City of Varanasi can be confusing and daunting for the first time traveller, but was a breeze with him. Will recommend.

    The guide set a fast pace going to the first eating place the blue lassi. Crowded and overrated. It was interesting going to hole in the wall eateries where food is freshly made and safe to eat. Interesting and informative tour.
