Kuldeep’s sunrise tour was a personalized and fascinating introduction not just to the aarti ceremony, but to the history and culture of Varanasi in general. Kuldeep has a deep knowledge of and passion about Varanasi that is infectious. Despite a rainy start, we enjoyed a peaceful boat ride on the nearly empty Ganges, followed by a tasty light breakfast of something I will only misspell. Definitely make his tour your first stop on any visit to Varanasi.

I tried Kuldeep's tour second time as i keep coming to Varanasi. I must say the experience was magical with amazing sunrise and a wonderful time spent on boat. Most amazing part is Kuldeep's story telling style and his passion for city which he reflects through every word he speaks. One must try this when in Varanasi.
