    Poor service
    Ramaswami_K, Oct 2022
    Guide was unaware and had to chase. Turned up late and arranged a short boat ride in the dark. We had to book another boat the next day. Very unsatisfactory. I have requested a refund

    Stunning evening with our guide Rahul. We arrived late due to traffic issues and Rahul waited around patiently and whisked us off so we lost no time at all. Amazing and must do while in Varanasi.
