  •   Karan is a wonderful guide. He’s personable, knowledgeable, friendly, sincere and genuine. Communication before, during and after our day together exploring Varanasi was excellent. I highly recommend Karan (aka Sachan Walking Tours) to anyone seeking a guide in Varanasi. You simply can’t go wrong.
