        The trip was very well planned by Mr. Vimal in a short time. All our stay and transportation was excellently handled by Vimal and team. The experienced guides provided in Varanasi(Sunita) and Ayodhya(Ravi) were very knowledgeable. Cab personal(Manoj) too handled commute very well. Thanks to the entire team to make our travel experience a memorable one.

        Knowledgeable guide in Varanasi
        Vimal Pathak was our guide in Varanasi, he came to pick us up from our hotel Brij Rama. He has knowledge and has elaborated information of the very old Heritage and historical culture of Varanasi. He is the most senior experienced guide. He is also president of the tour guide association. While showing us around, he explained us all about history of all places we visited & he was very funny at times & has a soothing voice, we found out he was a RJ at radio station. Kashi Vishwanath Temple tour with him was a divine experience. Unforgettable evening Ganga Arti was a soulful experience where he had reserved a sitting space for us. We visited all the ghats with him & he explained all the history about them. He was very patient with me as I had a hard time climbing up & down on all the steps due to my knee issues. He explained us about Sarnath place where Buddha preached his first sermon after enlightenment in Bodh Gaya. One more unique thing to mention, he takes excellent candid pictures. We highly recommend him as your tour guide if you visit Varanasi. He was kind enough to send me an item I wanted from Kashi & ship to my city.

        Our trip to Varanasi was truly once in a lifetime and spiritual. Vimal is an amazing guide who met all our specific needs in terms of temples and experiences. He was kind, attentive, not pushy, understood we where there for a reason and arranged everything spectacularly. If you are thinking of Varanasi for your religious beliefs or for an unforgettable trip, do contact Vimal. He's amazing.

        Exceptional experience!
        Vimal, professional guide with a fluent Spanish knowledge, has shown an excellent understanding of his role and the tour he has put together, has been perfectly balanced on our requirements by mixing the exact amount of culture with a Varanasi's insider looking. Flexibility and knowledge have been the key words and have driven us through a wonderful and exciting day, never letting us feeling as customers but, always, as two friends taken around town by a caring and trustful local friend, sharing an unbiased, accurate and in-depth view of his lovely town. Thank you Vimal: we have surely had an exceptional experience!

        The best experience of Varanasi
        I highly recommend Vimal as a tourguide in Varanasi! He is extremely respectful and tailored a daily program specifically for us, including a private boat tour, walk though the old town, sarnath, temples, evening arthi with the best seats, delicious foot spots and more. We spent an entire day together from 6am to 7pm and felt comfortable throughout. Vimal is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his city. He went out of his way to provide us a memorable experience. We could not have asked for more! I definitely recommend his services to anyone visiting Varanasi wanting to learn about this special place from a local!

        Varanasi Dec-23
        Were group of 7 incl. elderly parents. Vimalji arranged a lovely tour covering main temples, ghats & historical sites over 3 days. He took particular care in handling elders (wheelchairs etc). He also seemed to know best spots for local food & sari shopping. But most interesting were the morning (mini) bus-rides where he shared stories from the Puranas along with personal anecdotes. Worth it.

        Great service
        My wife and I had a great 3 days covering Varanasi and Sarnath. Our tour guide Mr Rohit Shukla was a knowledgeable and passionate born and bread in Varanasi person. Well-mannered and soft-spoken person. Mr Vimal Patak had arranged our tour, and we got a good insight into this great ancient city.

        Excellent guide Services in Varanasi
        We had an excellent experience in Varanasi courtesy Vimal Pathak. He helped us with finalising our itinerary for 2.5 days also arranging sightseeing, cab, boat ride, Ganga Aarti and all. He is well versed with mythology, history as well as science and narrates excellent stories about Banaras. Cherry on top was when he made us taste Banarasi chaat from a shop which was heavily crowded and we wouldn't have dared to order if we were on our own. We will certainly recommend anyone visiting Varanasi to contact Vimal for all the help over there.

        Vimal is an exceptional tour guide!
        Vimal Sir was nothing short of a Blessing for our family trip to Varanasi. He was beyond exceptional in all regards as our tour guide. He made sure all of us, especially our elderly parents were well taken care of during the whole tour. He ensured that we don't wait in lines wherever possible, got us the best viewing seats for the Ganga Aarti, gave us great insights into/experience the beautiful history, culture, local life, food, and architecture - he left no stone unturned. We couldn't have covered and experienced this much of Varanasi without Vimal. We have had tour guides in the past, but none of them compare to Vimal and his enigmatic personality. He is such a warm, friendly and fantastic person, who is fun, jovial, and caring just like family. If you are ever in Varanasi and are considering getting Vimal as a tour guide don't hesitate for even a second. You won't find another tour guide like Vimal easily. Thanks a ton Vimal Sir! We will always remember you and this Beautiful Tour of Varanasi. - Vaishali

        Extremely memorable and rewarding.
        We did a 4 day Varanasi and Sarnath tour with Mr Vimal and Mr Mishra in Nov 2023. The knowledge that both these gentleman carry about the place and history is immense. We thoroughly enjoyed the guided tours of Kashi Vishwanath, Ganga Aarti, the ghats , boat ride, Subah E Benares , the lanes of Benares, the silk shopping, Sarnath visit. This is one of our memorable trips and we thank both Mr Vimal and Mr Mishra for making it likeable at such a short notice.

      I am a dentist. I have toured with Vimal ji, the zeal and honesty with which he carries out his work is incomparable. I am his fan. Apart from him in Banaras, no other name comes to my mind. Highly recommended.
