★★★★★ We did a 2-day trip with Rajeev. Good arrangement and very good tour. Varanasi is a very impressive place. With own personal guide like Rajeev is perhaps the best way to experience the place in a short time.
★★★★★ We stayed one week in Varanasi. His support was crucial. We are photographers and we needed a guide for us to find non-tourists and indicated by us. All of our requests were met in a wonderful way. Nice, kind, helpful. Among the best guides in the world.
★★★★★ I have visited Kashi (Varanasi) during Oct 2017. It was my first exposure to the place. I consider my self lucky to have company and guidance of Kashi Journeys during my travel. Rajeev is a nice guy with adequate knowledge about the place and it's cultural heritage. More over his ever smiling helping nature made us feel like being in home away from home.
★★★★★ I can’t put in words how incredible my time in Varanasi was last week, and I owe so much of that experience to Rajeev and Kashi Journeys! I was travelling in India solo, and decided to find a guide for a day while in Varanasi, which turned out to be the best decision! Rajeev is professional, passionate and so willing to share all his knowledge and expertise with you. Being from Varanasi, he knows every inch of this Holy city and based on whatever you want or need Rajeev will make it happen - customizing and providing excellence at every turn. From arranging my airport pick-up, and fabulous driver Mahendra, to an evening boat ride along the Ganga and prime seating that evening for the Ganga Aarti. Wandering the small alleys of the old town, exploring countless temples, eating fabulous local foods and drinking masala chai. That day happened to also be Shivaratri, so the city was on fire with parades and people celebrating and worshiping Lord Shiva. I ended up spending the next two days with Jajeev as well, and quite honestly could have spent more time exploring and learning about this magical place. He took me to Sarnath - the sacred Buddhist pilgrimage site where Buddha first taught the Dharma, a morning boat ride along the Ghats, shopping for whatever you like... Varanasi is a place you have to see and feel for yourself, the energy is like nothing you will find anywhere. I felt blessed to have found someone like Rajeev to guide me through my time there. You will not find a better guide for your journey in Varanasi! Enjoy!!
★★★★★ I told Rajeev I didn’t want to see all the tourist sites of Varanasi, I really wanted a spiritual experience of Varanasi. I left everything up to Rajeev. Each day flowed along exquisitely, with time to sit and meditate in a special temple, participate in special pujas and rituals, and absorb the the views, the sounds, the flavors of Varanasi. He applied his creative talent to bring great delight! One morning he surprised me at dawn with a boat ride and a talented flute player who played ragas as the sun rose—mystical and magical! My spiritual name is Ganga. Of course I loved the Ganga Aarti, so we went each evening and I got to really participate and feel a part of it. Rajeev has a great heart and is very intuitive in creating the perfect experience. On my last evening, he surprised me with another boat ride. This time he brought along 108 floating lights which we set upon the water, as I offered prayers and wishes. A divine experience! I hope to return again in a year to continue the mystical, magical, delightful exploration of Varanasi with Rajeev.
