Had an amazing time in Varanasi thanks to Prakash. He explained everything what happens in Varanasi very clear and guides you trough the small streets . In the evening he took us to the ganga aarti and made our experience with this ceremony even more beautiful.

Highly recommend Prakash. I have taken tours with Prakash before this recent trip and recommend him highly. I only use him when I am lucky enough to be in Varanasi. He is very professional, his English is fantastic, and he explains everything as you go - he encourages you to ask any questions about anything you are experiencing which is helpful too. Don't go past Prakash as your guide if you want professional service with a friendly manner.
