What people are saying about Bharat Kala Bhavan Museum

I had a beautiful experience during the Olli festivity in Varanasi. Brahmin Anmol brought me around during the morning to spot some of the most significant temples in Varanasi, both Hindu and Buddhist. He knows all the history behind them. During the evening, we went for a boat tour on the rivers Ganges and we witnessed a burning celebration (not for faint hearted), and the evening Hindu mass, with lots of rituals, music and colours. In Italian: with Anmol we visited the entire city of Varanasi and saw Hindu and Buddhist temples, Anmol fully knows the thousand-year history of the city, and we toured it on a motorbike. We were during Olli's holiday, so our clothes were not spared from the colored water balloons😂, but we had fun. This was in the morning, but in the evening we met for the Ganges tour, and witnessed the cremations (cool stuff) and the evening Hindu ritual directly from the boat. Anmol speaks Italian, which can help

Anmol was our guide and He was very sweet, he has very good English and He also speaks Italian. He has a great understanding of the culture and spirituality and made easy for us to understand a little bit about an Indian culture in Varanasi. We explored the city in a car with AC which was very nice considering the hot weather and the driver was very careful with the Indian traffic. We could visit special places like temples where few people know about it. My friend and I felt safe and enjoyed the tour very much. It was a full experience with Anmol and we really recommend his service. Thank you so much for having us Anmol! We were feeling blessed having you as our guide! Namaste!

Anmol and the driver Naveen were super receptive and careful. Anmol has great knowledge about religions, and explained every detail, which made the difference, and he also knows the subject very well. I recommend this tour! Very good 👍🏻

Wonderful! We were looking for a guide and a driver and we found real friends, Briji and Vickey were attentive, careful and gave us spectacular information! We will be back and will certainly recommend it! An indescribable experience!

Raj our guide has been very good, he speaks Spanish well and explained to us patiently, the driver was also very good, there was water for us, he gave us enough time for photos, 100% recommended excursion
