If you are planning just Sarnath you can catch an Ola taxi. Much cheaper and no need for parking fees.

There is also an option of asking the hotel chaps for a guided tour option

Don't need half a day. It is about 10km from Varanasi. The road is good. So the entire trip will take just a few hours.

For local site seeing ac taxis would charge you something between 1600 and 2000 rupees (that would be Sarnath as well as most temples in Varanasi).

We paid 1300 from Assi Ghat to Sarnath from 11-6pm. However we did go to some other places on the way back. I would definitely recommend a local guide. Use Ola and Uber as a guide.

Use OLA. Once in Sarnath, best to get a guide, they only charge 100rs or so to show you around the whole place.

500 for taxi is ok but they think of you as a money plant . Please negotiate.
