Mr.Bharat is a great English guide and guided us around Sarnath and Varanasi well. He also shared us about the religion in India, using some pictures during his tour and it was very helpful for us to understand the history and background of here. We enjoyed but I requested Japanese guide in advance. Honestly, we were disappointed with mis-arrangement of guide’s language. I would like to recommend you to confirm several times about language of guide, if you choose other than English.
