I had a great tour of Sarnath with my guide. He was very kind and knowledgeable. I also got to see some interesting places in Varanasi and a great morning boat tour on the Ganges. Thank you!!


4 star rating: Recommended March 2018

We enjoyed this tour although we cut short the evening Ganga Arti ceremony as we had previously seen this on another Viator tour. The trip to Sarnath, although very interesting, could have been conducted at a slower pace with probably more time spent in the museum.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this March 2017

Our tour guide spoke no English
He dumped us at a museum and suggested that we just read the signs for information.
There was a massive mix up over pick up times. And we almost missed the Aarti.
Very dissapointed.
