      Vinay Singh is one of the sweetest person you will ever meet. I had booked this tour quite some time back. Vinayji ensured he kept track and assigned one of his best men to guide us. He also personally came to meet us. The tour guide Mr Rahul was even more wonderful and extremely accomodating to all of our needs. Very knowledgeable, Rahulji took us to every nook and corner of Varanasi explaining minute details with background stories. We were with a child and Rahulji was genuinely caring. I truly felt we were lucky to hire the services of Vinayji and team. Great memories made and will surely be back. Thank you Vinayji and Rahulji!!!
      Super customized tour

      The Vinay Singh Experience
      Arun_K, Oct 2022
      Experiencing the ancient city of Varanasi with Vinay Singh is an experience in itself!! He consciously focussed on what you are looking for in the trip and amazingly tailors the trip for you. Extremely sensitive to the needs of my aged mother, he still ensured that we had the fullest experience of every aspect of this ancient city, be it the spirituality, culture or the food and cuisine. His immersion in his beloved city helped us gain insights and understanding of what we were seeing that would have been otherwise not possible! Going beyond his immediate brief, he has lots of helpful and valuable suggestions and recommendations about the rest of your trip too. And not to forget he is a very handy photographer to help you capture all the memorable moments of your trip!😂👍🏻 It was our privilege and good luck to be with him in this important trip of ours!

      Vinay Singh gave us an AMAZING tour! He listened to what we wanted and tailored the perfect day! So knowledgeable
      Perfect walking tour
      Terycka_G, Mar 2022
      Vinay was super informative and helpful. The day we booked the tour, there were elections. Instead of taking us on a tour where we would have seen less, he moved our tour a day later to ensure that we got the full experience. He even met with us the day before the tour to ask us and see what we are interested in so he could prepare a tour according to our interests. The tour was great, we walked a lot of the Ganges and through many of the ally ways in the old city. Throughout the walk Vinay explained a lot about the history of Varanasi and Hinduism.

      We just had a fantastic day tour of Varansi with Vikash, our guide. He was knowledgeable, flexible and patient. He planned a day of touring that not only included our desired destinations but a few unexpected destinations that proved very interesting! We highly recommend!
      This tour made our trip to Varanasi even better
      Thomas_D, Feb 2020
      We had an amazing time in Varanasi thanks largely due to this personal tour. Our guide, Vicky, went out of his way to explain to take us to the various ghats but also to lesser known areas of Varanasi. Vicky didn't just knew his way very well throughout the city but also explained to us really well the Hindu religion and its spiritual customs. Vicky is a known guide in Varanasi which means people responded well to us and we were able to make some of the most amazing pictures. I can definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Varanasi and actually wants to understand the story behind this mesmerizing city. Vicky, you've been a great guide, a great host and we had an amazing time. Keep up!

      I did this tour with Vinay. He is very kind and told a lot about Varanasi and india and I discovered many interesting places. Then he organized another tour for me and everything was perfect again. I just can say: highly recommendable! Thank you so much!
      A day packed with
      Lorenz F, Nov 2019
      My guide Vinay picked me up in front of my hostel, we started out with the wonderful aarti ceremony at sunrise. After some breakfast we went on a boat ride, everywhere we went he had some interesting facts and could show me things I would have never found myself. You can look up everything on the internet nowadays but it comes nowhere near a guide like him. I felt very safe going through all the small alleyways to see the small, hidden but beautiful temples. This tour is ideal for people with limited time in Varanassi!
