About
We help the visitors to connect with this spiritual city with the help of stories from the past when wandering in the backstreets, markets & ghats. We walk in the old palaces, alleys and weave the threads of nostalgic history of this wonderful city. We make sure that the guests feel like they are like locals of Varanasi. Our another destination is Sarnath which is full of positive vibes of compassion & enlightenment of Lord Buddha which overshadows the visitors under its spiritual aura and they feel like being under the bless of Buddha.

My husband and I just completed a tour of Varanasi with Karan and his team.

We started by doing the Night Aarti, Morning Aarti and North Walk with Nikhil, Karan’s assistant. We visited and did darshan at Hanuman Mandir, Tulsi mandir, Durga Mandir, and Shiv mandir. It was a lovely, spiritual and eye opening experience.
We also completed a complete tour of Sarnath with Karan.

I cannot say enough good things about Karan. Karan is a fountain of knowledge of history, art, Hinduism, Buddhism and everything to do with Varanasi. He speaks multiple languages and his English is phenomenal.

He is so passionate and able to share information clearly and with wonderful energy. Simply stated, we learned so much about Varanasi and had a fantastic experience with Karan.

I am grateful to have crossed paths with Karan and to have made a new friend! We most certainly will recommend Karan to all of our friends and we plan to come back to Varanasi with our kids and will 100% use Karan again!

This was such an excellent tour. Our guide Karan is an extremely knowledgeable museum professional who taught us so much about the history, culture, architecture and street life of Varanasi. Plus he customized the tour to include street food highlights at my request. I really appreciate the care he put into our tour, particularly by changing the itinerary to make sure we got to do an extra boat ride since the morning was too foggy to see. Karan made this a seamless and easy experience despite the city being extremely crowded for New Year’s Day. Very highly recommend this private tour run by Karan!

We organised the north city walking tour, sunrise and sunset boat tours with Karan.

Karan is a fantastic tour guide. His breadth of knowledge, perfect English and enthusiasm made our time in Varanasi unforgettable. He offers a selection of different tours all at a fair price. His walking tours will guide you to the cities hidden gems that would otherwise go unnoticed.

I recommend Karan to everyone wishing to visit Varanasi.

My travel to Varanasi was made unforgettable by my guide who became my friend and if we know each others since a long time. From the recommendation for the hotel, restaurant, arranging the logistics and tour services everything was very good. Without his assistance, this trip would not be so good. He was kind to help us with the train bookings and other stuff. I will definitely recommend him and his tours.

I was initially skeptical about needing a guide in Varanasi, but reaching out to Karan turned out to be a fantastic decision. His extensive knowledge and the walking tour he led us on were truly enjoyable. The morning Haarathi and early morning boat ride the next day were unforgettable experiences that I highly recommend. Karan's care for our well-being went beyond being a guide; he even ensured our safe return to the hotel after the evening Haarathi. Whenever I think of Varanasi, Karan and the incredible hidden gems he showed us immediately come to mind. I eagerly anticipate revisiting the spiritual city with Karan as our guide, ready to discover even more of its wonders.

If you’re looking for the best, book a city tour with Karan. He is kind, fluent in multiple languages, is easy to understand, and ensures you understand. He is knowledgeable about history and gave us very useful advice about Varanasi. All that said, we’d definitely recommend using Karan.

Karan arranged our trips to Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, and Varanasi along with Orchha, which included logistics, hotels, and personal guiding. Everything was top-notch. Varanasi is supposedly an intense city etc etc, but we enjoyed it so much. Morning boat-tour was superb and Sarnath as well. We will definitely recommend him to all iur friends,colleagues and relatives for his fabulous tour service.

Being a solo traveller can make anyone insecure but Karan took me under his wings and took care of every need of mine starting from the pick up at the airport till I left Varanasi. He is very friendly, flexible and knowledgeable person. He told me that he used to be a museum-professional and restored lots of artworks in India and around the world. During the tours, we often sat for masala chai and had great chit-chat over many different topics. I liked his humor very much, he is so choosy about the vocabulary and is very mannered person. I don't think one can find a better guide in Varanasi. During my next trip, I am definitely going to use his services in other places as well.

I enjoyed every minute with my guide Karan. I was traveling solo, but after meeting Karan, it was like exploring Varanasi not only with an expert, but also with a real friend. He is exceeding knowledgeable, but maybe more importantly, he is a pleasure to spend time with. We had wonderful days roaming the streets, sipping masala chai tea, and observing the prayer rituals on the ghats. Karan invited me to his home where his wife prepared a truly delicious dinner. I hope that we remain connected and that one day I can show Karan my home town.
