Due to floods the ghats were closed so sarnath tour was arranged. It was a wonderful experience. Evening Aarti was wonderful. The authentic bhati choka was wonderful. The tour guide Bhawna Mohinani's efforts were really commendable. Her knowledge about city and religion was wonderful. On the whole it was a wonderful experience.

Unser Tourguide Bhawna Mohinani war sehr freundlich und hat uns gut informiert. Wir wurden pünktlich von Ihr am Hotel abgeholt und haben dann an der morgendlichen Zeremonie teilgenommen. Die Yoga Session ist nur was für eche Yoga-Fans. Wir haben uns die Yoga-Übungen angesehen und dass war schon interessant. Sehr gut hat uns die Bootsfahrt gefallen, von wo aus man die Ghats gesehen hat. Der Preis ist etwas zu hoch für die Leistungen die in der Tour integriert waren. Denn die ortsübliche Taxi- und Bootspreise waren sehr niedrig Wir hoffen, dass unser Guide auch von den hohen Preisen profitiert.
