Raul took us on a great tour of Varanasi. He gave lots of information about the city and the Hindu faith. He was open to questions. Raul gave us plenty of time at interesting places, like the Manikatnika Ghat. The two boat trips we went on were suberb; definetly the highlights of the tour. He gave us confidence to look around independently. After our tour finished we walked along the ghats which we had seen from the boat, visited the Vishwanath Temple and explored the streets and markets of the city.

We were a group of friends of mixed nationalities, some visiting India for the first time. Rahul (Christo) gave a rich introduction of the city. The itinerary was well-paced and highly engaging. He is informative, friendly and passionate about sharing the history of Varanasi. The stay was comfortable and Rahul was very flexible with last minute requests, as needed. I would highly recommend Streetwise Varanasi tours!
