The tour guide was ppersonable and was very happy to provide an insight into the cultural,spiritual and social aspects of this district. She spoke fluent aenhlish. The gardens were spectacularvand you had the freedom to stay longer and were given train ticket home.
This was a great morning. Our guide was interesting, had a good knowledge and was charming. The walk was fantastic we enjoyed all of it.
Excellent tour from MItch at Sunrise Tours. I got several prized photos from the walk. It was the perfect amount of time to catch river scenery, and both Buddhist/Shinto shrines, not to mention a walk through the prized neighbhorhood of Kyoto.
This tour leads off the Kyoto city limits, the train needed about 30 minutes, a shuttle to Kyoto main is included. Sights are the Sagano bamboo grove, two temples and the Toketsukyo bridge. Explanations are given while walking, since that’s what you do all the time. At the end you will have an opportunity to do a little shopping. The tour guide was friendly and competent, the price seems a little high although all transportation was included. Anyway it was an interesting morning, but you should know how to use your feet (especially in summer).
Great tour, however be prepared for lot of stair climbing. We were laughing that it is not a walking tour but a climbing tour. But the beautiful view compensated for everything. 5star.
The tour guide was informative and speaks good English. I am happy with the way she conducted the tour.
We really enjoyed our trip to Arashiyama. Its a beautiful town with so much to offer. Great scenery and walks along the river, through the town and of course the bamboo and gardens. Our guide Mitch was really informative and made the trip interesting. Id definitely recommend the this trip.
The guide provided a good source of information in regards to the history and culture of the places we had visited.
However, it took me by surprise that the tour we paid for was a hop onto the public train transportation rather than a coach ride.
Guide provided additional help by checking and providing us with transport directions to other places we wanted to visit that was not part of the itinerary.
Our tour guide was lovely and very informative. A visit to this section of Kyoto is a must for all visitors to the city.
Enjoyed the tour. Our guide was funny and informative. She gave us information that we would not of known otherwise. Fall foliage was beautiful. Will definately use Viator on other vacations.

Doing what: Arashiyama and Sagano Morning Walking Tour
The guide spoke very poor English, very frustrating.
Maybe I'm biased because it was such a cold and miserable day but the tour was a disappointment. The bamboo forest I was expecting was a small planted patch. Maybe on a nicer day I'd have been more forgiving of the letdown.
The place itself was beautiful and well worth visiting. The guide spoke very good English and conducted herself very well. However, I believe the tour was overpriced, with little bang for your buck! If you have the time, visit by yourself.
Our guide, Aiko, was wonderful!! Our group size of 8 was just perfect. This walking tour was just what I was looking for - an introduction to "quiet" Kyoto. I would recommend this to anyone and will definitely seek additional tours of this kind in the future. Thanks, Aiko!!
