    I took Varanasi pkg from Hospes India and they helped me in taking my decision and gave me lots of info before booking. Their guidance and arrangement were superb. Hotels and cabs given there were according to the budget. The benefit is that they are local from Varanasi but they have a variety of domestic and international packages within budget and lesser in the market. I will book again with them when I will come to Varanasi. ...more
