"Varanasi is an amazing place and Rahul is the best there is at showing you its true

beauty and mystery. We had signed up for the "two day, no worries" tour and it certainly lived up to it's name. Rahul knows every alley and doorway in Varanasi as well as the story and history behind them. He truly is streetwise".

He went above and beyond our expectations and went out of his way to take care of us. We felt completely safe and at ease with Rahul. Our 2 days no-worries was the best part of our trip to India!

Rahul was my security, my problem solver, my translator, my friend, my guide, my teacher... As a photographer I had all the freedom after my purse.. Genuine, honest, caring and wise.

Those who has the skill of the narrator, who passionate about their work, who can make a joke. And best of all, if this man is not only interesting talks about interesting places, but is in itself interesting. If you are interested to talk to him about him, about themselves, and not just about Varanasi".

Andrey, Moscow, Russia, 2015
